Here are all the things that I have craved while pregnant, and true to my form they are not very consistent. It seems while some women crave on ting their entire pregnancy, I craved certain things in different trimesters.
Even though I couldn’t’t keep too much down, I craved:
Mexican, anything spicy
Deep Fried Mushrooms, but it had to be (Bowling alley style beer battered mushrooms, from one specific bowling alley in Cleveland) and then once I did eat them, they made me sick L
Have you any idea how hard it is to come by apricot nectar these days? I wanted it and I wanted it constantly, finally I broke down and paid nearly six dollars for a bottle, then only drank half of it before I realized it gave me terrible heartburn.
Water melon: I could eat a whole one
Mexican: I will still craving the spicy stuff
Mcdonalds “Big and Tasty Hamburgers”
Yes bowling, I CRAVED bowling, and the problem was I really was only able to bowl about 4 times before my back started to hurt.
Strawberries, or strawberry flavored anything, now mind you, I love strawberries but have always hated strawberry “Flavored “ things, so this was a strange one, I have wanted strawberry gum, lip balm, milk, I even managed to find Strawberry frosted Shredded Wheat (those are REALLY good BTW)
Watermelon: I could still eat a whole one if I tried.
Baby must need calcium because this has become almost a daily thing with me, even plain old boring vanilla will do!
Orange Juice: Got to have it
Cherry Pop tarts: but it HAS to be Cherry and they have to be hot
I haven’t really had any traditionally weird pregnancy cravings (IE Pickles and ice cream) But there was one time that I did crave mango sorbet and seltzer water…….lets say that didn’t turn out well!
Things that I have let myself eat that I haven’t eaten in years, that completely failed me:
There were a number of things that I used to eat as a kid, that as an adult, I really haven’t let myself have in years, mainly because it was all junk, here is a list of things that I finally gave in and ate, and realized they didn’t taste as good as they used to:
They used to be creamy and delicious,now they taste like fakeness and preservatives.
“Lil Hugs Juice Drinks”:
Tasted like colored sugar water
Seriously??? I used to drink this? Ugh think, sugar syrup with lots of sugar. Nasssty
Any Kind of “Little Debbie Snackcakes”:
While I will tear up a package of delicious Hostess Snowballs,. I simply cannot stand the taste of these things, too sweet.
I think the best part of being pregnant, is the liberated feeling that you can eat whatever you want, because I am getting to eat things I haven’t had in years and learning really quickly what I will never eat again, I am getting it out of my system if you will. Which should make losing weight after baby, a little easier.
