Not About Food 119

The odd cravings and dislikes of a pregnant woman [Moved from General Topics board]

I've always been facinated with how pregnancy messes with a woman's food sense. Every person I know can recall at least one thing they loved and one thing they couldn't even look at for the nine (ten) months they were pregnant. I found out two months ago that I was pregnant with my first child and was interested to see how this would affect me.

So far, I haven't found myself craving things I previously hated, but am now happily eating 3 pieces of bread and butter instead of my pasta or rice and am always craving anything with melted cheese (although with my tagline, that's not too far off course). As you can imagine, grilled cheese is my new ecstasy=)
I am finding things that are turning me off. Large pieces of meat do nothing for me- only cut pieces will do. And although I've always been a huge condiment fan, I'm finding the thought and sight of mayonnaise to be completely repulsive.

I'm interested in seeing what comes next, and whether or not my tastes go back to "normal".

I'd love to hear from others on their (or their spouses) odd cravings and dislikes. Also, is it the same throughout, or do I have more to look forward to.
