When I was pregnant I craved peppermint chewing gum and tooth paste.  I had my son a year ago the 4th and I still craved that stuff after I had him.  Never stopped craving it til a couple months ago.

I craved donuts the first time.  As bad as you could get, too.  You know, the cream filled, chocolate iced ones.  I don't have any specific cravings this time.  Just plain old hungry all the time.

I craved and ate tons of fresh tomatoes when I was pregnant.  Then on maternity leave when I was nursing I couldn't get enough chocolate chip cookies.
