    This List Of Weird Pregnancy Cravings Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

    Whatever baby wants...

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the strangest things they craved while pregnant, and the answers did NOT disappoint. Here are the delightfully disgusting results.

    1. Buddy's sweet spaghetti from Elf.

    "I didn't know I was pregnant, but I was watching Elf. Buddy was making his spaghetti with the maple syrup, candy, marshmallows, etc, and it looked AMAZING! Tested positive two days later." –Teri Reed, Facebook

    2. Dish soap on a cheeseburger.

    "I desperately wanted to put Palmolive dish soap (a pink bottle) on my cheeseburger one day. I didn't do it, but OH MAN, it sounded amazing. Also, I once put a can of fruit cocktail over tilapia and white rice. Everything tasted great except the cherries." –Sarah Jane, Facebook

    3. Uncooked canned corn.

    "With my son, it was canned corn — which isn't really weird in itself, but I only wanted it uncooked, straight from the can, with a spoon. I couldn't get enough of it. I'd go through at least two cans a day for a couple months. It was ridiculous." —Dee Jackson Kanavel, Facebook

    4. Cream-filled doughnut stuffed with white cheddar popcorn.

    9. The telltale onion.

    "I found out I was pregnant because out of nowhere I just wanted onions. I hated onions. I would find myself in the kitchen thinking, What can I put an onion in? I just want a fucking onion. I told a friend about it and she said, 'Haha, maybe you’re pregnant.' I said, 'That’s not funny,' then took a test, then another, then another and I couldn’t deny all those pink plus signs. I was pregnant." —codynolliebear

    10. Kosher dill pickles stuffed with grape jelly.

    "I was babysitting while pregnant with my first daughter. The kids wanted a snack. They loved the big, half-cut, kosher dill pickles. So I’m looking at them thinking, I think I want one too! I carved out the middle with my teeth then filled the ‘pickle boat’ with grape jelly. It was spectacular!! The tang, the vinegar, the sweet, the crunch.

    "Now, however, it sounds disgusting." —memoriem

    11. Canned cheese on powdered doughnuts.
