What's your weirdest pregnancy cravings?

A new survey reveals the weirdest and wackiest cravings experienced by mums-to-be

 1197

And they include cravings to be sweet chocolate (30%); (no surprise!) sour pickles (29%); and salty crisps (28%). With some of the more unconventional individual responses including rubber, paint and rocks, while one person even said tree bark and another the smell of tennis balls. 

The poll from C&G Baby Club Community reveals a third of pregnant women (31%) are just as likely to find the object of their craving in a chemist or hardware store, as they are in a supermarket, as they admit to unusual hankerings for non-food items, such as soap (11%), chalk (6%) and toothpaste (5%), as well as creative combos such as sausages and jam.

At some point during pregnancy, nearly half of mums-to-be (49%) have felt embarrassed by their cravings, with a majority turning to an online delivery service to stock up on their unusual urges (34%).

Other weird and wonderful cravings listed by pregnant women surveyed include:

· Banana with marmite

· Ice cream and chips

· Prawn cocktail crisps and strawberry yoghurt

· Cheese and onion crisps with nutella

· Chicken and ice cream

· Sweet and sour curry with salad cream

· Wood chips

· The smell of shoe polish
