I've never had any really strange pregnancy cravings. A few here and there... I want a pizza, I want hash browns... but nothing too overwhelming. Usually it's much more about the pregnancy aversions for me. From the moment I get pregnant, I cannot STAND eating chicken or eggs. There are other things that I tend to avoid, but chicken and eggs are the big things.
This time around, I have the same aversions I've had every time, but I am dealing with a lot more cravings. Something will pop into my head and I just fixate on it. I can't think of anything else that I want and I'm just obsessed. The other night it was French Onion soup. I don't know why. I've maybe eaten French Onion soup 3 or 4 times in my life. But I wanted it SO badly. It was 10:00 at night and I'm trying to figure out how to get some. Or failing that, to make some. Of course, I had no ingredients. So disappointing.
But by far the strangest pregnancy craving I've ever had would be my urge to drink whiteboard cleaner. I don't know what it it, but every time I see those bottles of whiteboard cleaner (which are all over the office) I just want it. I don't know what I think it's going to taste like. I can smell the rubbing alcohol in it, so it's not like it smells delicious and appetizing to me. And it's just clear like water, so nothing exciting there. But if I can see it, it just obsesses me. All I can think about is drinking it. I have to get up and move the bottle to the other side of the room where I can't see it. Bizarre.
