Whenever I’m pregnant I get a little nervous about having weird cravings. You know the ones: pickles and ice-cream, cookies and ketchup, french fries dipped in mayonnaise. I mean, for a large part of my day I’m thinking about what I’m going to eat next. (What?) During those first few weeks I really dread eating, but for the majority of my pregnancy I think about food and cravings and small meals and snacks in my purse.
And so I wonder if I’ll ever have a so-called weird craving. (So far: no.) And really, isn’t that what every pregnant woman secretly wants to know about the pregnant gal next door?
Have you had any strange pregnancy cravings? Normal cravings? Are any of you brave enough to admit what you’ve been eating? Even though I haven’t had any weird cravings, I’m only halfway through this pregnancy so there’s plenty of time for them to show up.
What I crave the most is a big bowl of cereal, juicy fruit, ice-cream, popsicles, cookies & milk, and any pairing that involves a combination of cheese/salt/crunch. And yes these are the same cravings I had with Maxwell. Makes me wonder if baby #2 is a little girl or a little boy.
So I’d love to know, what are your pregnancy cravings? (Don’t be shy, fill me in on what I’m missing — wink!)
