    Crazy pregnancy cravings! I have been a vegetarian for more than 15 years... but this afternoon I got the strongest craving for BACON and just had to satisfy it... so I ate a BLT. And it was delicious!!!

    Pregnancy is so bizarre. Anyone else eating weird things?

    My weirdest craving has been for green olives, which i dont normally like much, but I went through about 8 jars between weeks 17-19, it's faded now though x

    Dairy! I'm lactose intolerant and drink oat milk and generally stay away from dairy products, but in the past few weeks I have found I can eat dairy with no side effects whatsoever. Hello cheese! Hello ice cream! I can even drink a glass of milk now, never thought I'd be able to do that.

    I'm not vegetarian but I don't eat pork... and I've been craving bacon like crazy. I think it has to do with the salt so whenever I crave it, I just eat something else like salted peanuts and it goes away.

    I'm a vegetarian too and the smell of my OH's meaty pizzas drives me crazy, it smells so good! And I really want frankfurters or bacon with eggs. Usually just the idea of meat would make my stomach churn.

    I'm the total opposite... I've always loved my meat and loved nothing more than a juicy steak or a nice pork roast... But since being pregnant I don't want meat at all.... I'm seriously considering going vegetarian after the baby is born, or even now and just taking vitamin C so my body can absorb more iron. It wouldn't bother me right now if I never saw another steak... It's really strange what pregnancy does to you. I've also become a broccoli addict, I have to eat it every day and I hated it before lol

    I'm with you on this. Pre-pregnancy, I was lactose intolerant to the point that Lactaid would help a little but not enough for me to justify cheating and eating ice cream or cheese. Now, I can eat them without the lactose intolerant pains. This LO likes string cheese, puddings, chocolate milk... so it's good that I can handle the dairy at the moment. :)

    I've been eating BLTs like crazy! Bacon tastes extra good when you're preggers.

    Wow, did the BLT upset your stomach? I have heard that if you are a complete vegetarian pork can be hard to digest if you haven't had it in a long time. Maybe that is just a myth!

    I would LOVE a BLT but I don't eat pork. Unfortunately, here all the turkey and veggie bacons have scary chemicals in them that I try to avoid, especially while preggo. Organic nitrate free pork bacon would be healthier, but I can't bring myself to do it!

    Totally forgot about string cheese, nice one! Will have to get some of those. Really wishing I was back home now so I could drive to Wisconsin and hit all the cheese chalets!

    I'm normally the opposite. I love meat. But since being pregnant unless the meat is mixed in with a sauce/other food (eg curry, stew or broth) I can't eat it!

    I've never liked citrus it was always too 'tangy' for me but nowadays I just can't seem to get enough. Grapefruits, oranges, sweeties, pomelos... It's crazy!

    I'm also another one of those 'usually' lactose-intolerant people - but Jellybean loves hot-cocoa, chocolate-pudding and cheese - and my stomach has been tolerating it fairly well so I'm enjoying while I can!
