It's so funny everyone talks about pregnancy cravings, but when I was pregnant I didn't have any. Half of the time I didn't even feel like eating, even after the morning sickness was gone. I kept a healthy diet but other than that the only thing I really "craved" I guess was smartfood popcorn.

huh.  All I wanted were hamburgers.  Hamburgers all the time!  And my cravings were so strong that my twin sister was craving hamburgers, too.  Cheesy

 Well generally my cravings haven't been this "artistic". So far I have been craving Pizzeria pizza... NOT frozen, NOT delivery.... but, italian restaraunts, pub pizza and pizzeria PIZZA!! Vegetarian with LOTS of jalapenos!!!

 On another note, who will be the next sender and receivers? I stayed up LATE lastnight working on my package for Crafte. I tell you what. Its going to be hard to seal it in a box and send it away!! I know it will be going to a great home though!!! Why is it that when I want to make myself something it turns out good, okay and "will do" but, when I make something for someone else it turns out fantastic??? *shrugs* I hope you love it Crafte!!

It must be the law of sacrifice! If you must sacrifice, you are blessed more for your efforts.
On the note of Pregnancy cravings, I have the same as you. I used to like Chineese food. Now it tastes stale to me. I have to have Thai food, and everything must be fresh. Same with the pizzas. Store bought cookies won't do. They have to be homemade. I have a foodie growing inside me!

found a piece of _____ to use on one partners_____
started some________ for other partner. still need to make a run to craft store.

as far as cravings. with daughter it was crab legs and lobster.  yeah she has expensive tastes.  and needless to say that craving wasn't fed often for her or I.
adn with son it was dill pickle potatoe chips. which was not a fed craving because I am allergic to dill!  go figure!
my hubby had all the morning sickness and ate constantly. but I gained all the weight.  tell me where thats fair!


looking for instant coffee from australia or russia made with mustard and champagne.  VIOLET CRUMBLES and VEGEMITE would be welcome swap items!!

jloveg-Dill pickle chips are awesome with or with out a pregnancy to go along!!  I craved PB&J sammies for the first part of my pregnancy and towards the end it was anything HOTTT and lots and lots of milk!!  No ice cream for me and chocolate gave me heartburn! Sad

About the pregnancy cravings, I craved  bell  green pepper  Tongue, I ate 2 of those and suddenly realize that it grows hahahaa some days later I was eating it again Tongue
another curios fact is that I really really craved soup of... sea fruit?? (I am not sure of the name in english) but seriously, I just died for having a big hot bowl of that soup, and before the pregnancy I HATED SEA FRUIT!! oh God! I am craving it now.... I will never hate it again  Grin

To keep it crafty, I love making baby socks. Sooooo satisfying! I am all about instant gratification when I can get it!

For me with my son it was baked goods. Anything and everything.I would bake a cake everyday.   For my daughter, it was strawberries. Mostly in  with angel food and whipped cream.  Also spaghetti and mayonnaise sandwiches. LOL

I had adverse affects too. I couldn't stand the smell of corn tortillas (and I  LOVE mexican food) and coffee. I'm also a fan of caffeine. It was sad. 

Just trying to find me...

Yay I am soo close to being done, I just need to kick myself in the butt to get myself finished. On the upside I remembered to stop by the postoffice and pick up a customs declaration form. They are sooo much easier to fill out at home, than when the postal worker is staring down at me waiting for me to do it. LOL.

btw, when I was pregnant, I had HORRIBLE morning sickness and all sorts of smells made me ill. But mostly for the first 6 months chocolate made me gag, the mere smell of it, I almost puked on my boyfriend for eating a candy bar within 5 feet of me. LOL. But mostly my sense of smell went crazy, it was so sharp I could smell all sorts of stuff, I smelled by boyfriend eating cake and it woke me up from a nap!
