    I'm having real trouble with smells at the moment!! I havent been able to wear my perfume for weeks, and I felt ill when someone sat next to me the other day who stank of soap!! I cant handle it!

    Food wise, I've found i'm not really indecisive....I'll eat most things, but if i'm in a supermarket trying to decide what to have it can take hours! (I've now learnt a list is a must have!)

    But craving wise, I've gone mad for sausages (my friends all laugh when I say this) but I can eat them all day every day, with either gravy or spaghetti hoops! Or in sandwiches, or just on thier own.....i've gone sausage mad!

    Hmmm well people smell wierd to me sort of salty especially when it is hot and it really turns my stomach I hate being at the airport, this was the very first thing that happened to me in pg before I even new or guessed I was:shock: and my dishwasher never smells clean and OH (who is a big clean freak) says it is fine.

    As for food not too bad really couldnt drink anything for a while without feeling sick but generally only chocolate isa turn off. I seem to have a thing for oats though and I have no idea why or how it happened, today so far I have had oatybix apple and sultana minis for breackfast 5 oatcakes for teabreak with banana at 10am and I have just polished of a quaker oat and syrup bar?? I also have sweet ginger oatcakes and fruit oatcakes at home :shock: another wier thing for me is cream crackers, phili with chives covered in branston pickle!

    Oh god - cream crackers!!! Totally craving steak, completely gone off all healthy food, even carrots and I used to eat them by the pound!
    The smell of cat food makes me sick (bit of a problem with two cats that need fed!) but craving tuna mayo on baked potato which is a problem as can't open tuna in this house without the cats getting any!
    Also toothpaste - really makes me feel sick so had to switch to a strange ayervedic toothpaste called Vicco which is really good and doesn't make me gag!
    And on that can smell my dinner in the oven so going to go open a jar of pickled beetroot to go with it!

    errr nothing. Is that weird.

    I've had no cravings or anything to the opposite, I haven't gone off anything smells wise or food wise.

    To be honest its only now at nearly 24 weeks I'm starting to notice I'm pregnant at all- I never got morning sickness or exhaustion, I haven't put on weight anywhere but my belly is bigger now so its harder to move around, I get more backache and I can faintly feel my boy move around - oh a tendency to sniffle at silly things a bit more but only when I'm by myself.

    I feel a bit of a fraud!

    I've had a hard time eating fruit, especially apples, as they stayed with me and made me icky afterwards and i've gone off Ribena. Apart from that, i still drink tea if it's decaf and will eat ANYTHING especially ice pops or ice cool drinks. Missing medium cooked fillet steak though so that'll be a treat when the baby comes.

    Current craving is chip shop chips smothered in vinegar...mmmmmmmmmmmm

    Gone off: Curry. Can't stand the thought of it and if my husband has anything garlicky or chilli then I can't have him breathe on me. It was worse in first trimester, even thinking about curry made me start heaving.
    Also cabbage/cauliflower/broccoli - any veges from that family I really have gone off.
    Coffee.
    Meat, I don't eat it but if my husband has cooked himself a steak I can't stand the smell.

    Cravings? Not really, although I seem to go through phases of really wanting a particular food, I'll eat lots of it and then I kind of don't want it any more. I have done this with crisps, chocolate, mangoes, ribena, nutella, and jam on toast.

    I have a serious addiction to breakfast foods right now. I just want toast, cereal, eggs (really craving a runny yolk but can,t have it), and pancakes!

    The only weird things so far is I want toast with cream cheese & green olives a lot and I can't stand pistachios, which I used to love.
