When do cravings start? and how do know it's a craving and not just that you feel like a particular food if you know what I mean?

I am 11 weeks & I have started having cravings. The reason I know they are cravings is because they are for stuff that I would NEVER eat if I weren't pregnant. Like ham salad. And I usually don't eat a lot of ice cream but now my freezer is full with all sorts of ice cream things that I would NEVER buy & sure as hell would NEVER keep a constant supply of.

Me too Lynn! I'm only 6 and a half weeks and I WANT MEAT! The problem is... I'm a vegetarian! It's very frustrating to feel this way. I want things I would never dream of eating like Arby's roast beef sandwiches and Taco Bell. Can you believe that? I think this can start at any time and will probably last the entire nine months. Happy eating everyone!

I'm 7 weeks & I like salty things all of a sudden and I couldn't eat a lot salt before!! Now I eat chips, beef jerky, things like that and I always add salt to my food now!! It's funny!

On the flip side of this, do any of you find that some of your favorite foods now taste somewhat flavorless?

YES. I absolutely adore broccoli. I could eat it at every meal.... but now.... I get "watery sick mouth" even THINKING about it. I can't explain it but it is a definate negative reation when I think about eating it. I'm feeling queasy even typing about eating it. Also... I have always been a Chinese Food Whore!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! But now.... I can't even think about putting it near my mouth. So weird... but normal from what my sisters tell me. Baby knows what baby wants - and DOESN'T want I guess!
