    Hey Toots, why have you refrained from Dagwood Dogs, is it the listeria thing? The company I work for sells frozen ones, maybe if it is listeria that's the problem you could contact a local food distributor & buy a box of frozen ones so you can cook them properly at home.......

    Oh oh oh! I've thought of another one - yoghurt! Get this, because I get hungry between 5 - 7 am of a morning (aarrggh) I need to get up and eat something and the only thing that alleviates the hunger and allows me to get back to sleep is yoghurt! I started to crave it initially but then during my early morning raids on the fridge discovered that this was the best possible thing for me to eat, so that's my routine now LOL!

    Sarah - re the dagwood dogs. The reason I haven't eaten them is because you can't get them at many places down here, but you can usually get them at the Salamanca Markets held down here on a Saturday, but I'm not sure as I would trust them, i.e. I don't know how long they would have been sitting there for, so yeah, I'd be worried about listeria. I was also wondering exactly what kind of meat it is that is in them LOL?!?! OMG I'm salivating just thinking about them though!!! Ooooohhhh dagwood dog with big slurps of tomato sauce!! TO DIE FOR! I hadn't thought of buying them frozen and am unsure where I could get them from down here?!?

    I think they have both beef & pork in them, but will find out for you tomorrow when I'm at work.

    OK, my mission for tomorrow is to check with our supplier if (and where) you can buy them in Tassie!! Afterall, we can't have your little tiger going without something he REALLY wants can we?!

    Ok, the only thing I have really craved is strawberry milk. Some days I want it so bad I can actually smell it! And I am not kidding! What I really really would like is a strawberry shake from Maccas but I haven't had one . I just get the normal strawberry milk from the deli instead. I bought a huge tin of strawberry nesquik thinking that I had a cheaper solution to this craving but it doesn't even taste strawberry! It only tastes sweet. Grrrrr. Oh, and did anyone else get those cadburys strawberries and dream eggs at easter time? They were really really good too, tasted just like a strawberry milkshake! Oh no. I've done it now. Too much mention of this and now I want some. Why does this always happen in the middle of the night?

    I'd been wanting to try those eggs since easter last year, but refused to pay $6 for a 120gm pack of eggs. I saw them today at Coles for $1.59 because it is after easter (best time to get cheap chocolate cos chocolate takes years to go off). I tried some out already, and they are sooo good. They aren't excessively rich like most of the dream range.

    I had a craving for strawberry flavoured things a while back. Stemmed from me not being able to get Strawberry Ripes anymore. But my cravings change every day. It's usually grapes, chocolate something, or yogurt, which I can't have too much of, because dairy food in any portion more than a tiny amount makes me feel nauseous, as I remembered today after eating 500g of yogurt for lunch. Ooops!

    I've got a bit of a lactose intolerance so I need to be careful about dairy too - I always have to have the 'light' versions of things (particularly milk and cheese) or it can make me pretty sick! The only 'full strength' stuff I can eat is yoghurt, but pre-pregnancy on the rare occasion I would have yoghurt I would always have the light stuff....seems my stomach can tolerate full strength yoghurt ATM!

    I'm the opposite... usually any dairy product makes me feel yuck, so I don't drink milk or eat full cream cheese etc... or eat yogurt, but throughout PG I have been eating yogurt by the litre! Strange!

    I am at that horrible sick stage where I want something but I have no idea what it is...I have about 5 different boxes of cereal at the moment, I start eating one and am then sick and can't face it again!

    Can anyone fill me in on what the old wives tales are re cravings and the sex of the baby? It would be interesting to see how many people this has been true for!

    Hi Beth!

    I'm pretty sure they are definietly old wives tales as yesterday at the service station I bought:

    1 apple and cinnamon fruit bar
    1 chocolate bar, and
    2 packets of chips...

    and ate them ALL in the space of about 15mins and they all satisfied my cravings!!!

    Ohhh I wish DH was home to take me to the shop now that I am talking about it! (I am in this stage where I hate going out by myself, did/does anyone else feel like that during their pregnancy?).

    One thing that I REALLY enjoying eating is apple puree. YUM!
