I am also craving sushi!

I wanted veggie sushi as well!! It was frustrating because I couldn't stand the smell of fish counters in early pregnancy but I really, really wanted plain ol' inari. The only place I know that has them is H-Mart, but I find Asian groceries to have tough to deal with fish smells under ordinary circumstances. So frustrating!! But WF avocado cucumber inside out rolls provided a lot of sustenance early on.

I have also had the biggest appetite for fruit, especially berries, throughout the pregnancy.

Definitely fruit and lots of pancakes.

Strawberries were my go to food all the way through my pregnancy with the Emperor. During the height of the season, which corresponded nicely with my cravings, I was eating a couple of pounds of them a week.

I HATED sushi* before I was pregnant, was obsessed with it from weeks 34-38 and ate it every day, and now that I'm not pregnant I hate it again.

*veggie, obv.

I think the sushi craving is so interesting! I've been eating it at least once a week -avocado peanut rolls, spicy mock tuna, mock-eel and mock salmon. Mmmmmmm.

I have found that my cravings change almost weekly! Sushi, definitely as well as fruit (thank god I run farmers' markets!), first trimester I loved yogurt, haven't eaten it since January, chocolate cake, there were a few weeks when I could have only eaten chocolate cake. I had one week were I really, really wanted meat, but didn't do it. Toast with eb and jam, cannot get enough, smoothies and milkshakes.

Orange juice, orange juice, orange juice. I had to skip it a few days because of freaking canker sores, and ending up trying to drink it through a straw, etc.

Other than that...anything with salt. I really think I could use one of those salt licks they have for horses. One day, had tortilla chips and orange juice at breakfast! (ew)

YES. And grapefruit. I loved anything sour. By the end I was drinking unsweetened lemonade.

LOVED sushi! That was really the only way for me to get my vegetables in at the beginning of my pregnancy. I ended up loving salads by the end (I'm not a big salad fan), and I did a salad bar for lunch practically every day.

I drank lots of fizzy water - that was my biggest more serious craving.

I ate bags and bags of lemons. Probably not good for my tooth enamel, but whatevs. And I ate a lot of grapefruits. Later in the pregnancy it was anything spicy. I went through, like, three big bottles of sriracha in four months because I put it on EVERYTHING.

Oatmeal with peanut butter stirred in, once or twice a day for at least a month now! Cold cold drinks like smoothies, Sonic slushes, and mocha frappachinos. Coca-cola over ice in one particular glass.
In the first trimester, it was all about canned fruit and sesame bagels with hummus. Now I pretty much want to vom when I think about those foods!

I am practically counting down the days until cherries will arrive at the farmers' market. I cannot wait for any and all stone fruit, I am going to eat it all (sorry rest of America). We have about 17 to 20 days until it should be ready.

right now I just want everything I see on a commercial, veganized. It is funny because I actually still don't have much of an appetite but I guess I still want everything

Mashed Potatoes (heavy on the Earth Balance) with steamed spinach/kale and noochy miso gravy...over and over and over again.

Greek salad (no feta, of course) and cake. Cannot get enough of either one. I think it is so funny that everyone always craves sushi! The chewiness of the nori is revolting to me when I am pregnant.

mashed potatoes, green beans and fizzy water for the first 8 weeks. it was the middle of a heat wave, and there was one air conditioner in our apartment, so once a day i would drag myself down to the kitchen, make a huge bowl of mashed potatoes and green beans, load up a couple of bottles of fizzy water and lime, and go lay down under the air con again.

the rest of the pregnancy i basically was starving so ate any and everything i could get my hands on.

Yes, this was me exactly! Also, I craved green grapes and baked potatoes like whoa. And "egg and cheese" muffins.

Coffee was a huge craving too.

Also, my appetite is so suggestible; like after reading this thread I want to eat most of things mentioned!
I went through an apple pie fixation a few weeks ago.

My banana craving is gone even if there are still a ton in the house, I think I will freeze them for smoothies. I haven't even thought about sushi in 7 months, maybe this weekend. I am so adverse to food the last two days. I don't want anything specific and if I am hungry I do not care what I eat, it is so annoying. I do want naps though, lots and lots of naps.

Its so funny, I don't feel like I've had any cravings where I *had* to have something. You know, the kind that send partners running to the store in the middle of the night. There are definitely things I am in the mood for, but most of my food related feelings have been mild aversions to some things. I just try and eat before I get hungry because otherwise I get nauseous.

Is that weird? Are other people's cravings more like really cravings?

For me, when I had cravings, it was that or nothing. But I had insane sickness and my aversions were super strong, too. Like, if I saw something green and leafy on TV, I got sick. If I smelled coffee, I got sick. Heck, if I smelled just about anything I got sick. It was really bad for a while, and when I craved something, I couldn't stop thinking about it until I ate it (this might have had something to do with the fact that I wasn't eating anything at all, so when something actually sounded good, it was pretty much all consuming).
