  • Are you craving actually butter or margerine? If you're craving actual butter, it may be that you need a little extra fat in your diet. Eating well is one thing, but you need to be balanced. Your baby will need a little bit of extra fat, ya know?

  • I fell in love with bread with butter on it when I was pregnant, and I still am. Bad habit, but I love it! Don't know if it means anything, though, I just summed it up to being pregnant and having cravings :)

  • I'm not preggo and when I really crave something which is rare, I ask myself what nitrient i'm lacking that would make me care that thing. I'm with the above lady, maybe all you want is some extra fat, or dairy. Pregnancy is a good time to listen to what your body wants. We like to say....."the baby wants icecream, or cake...." But I still think you need extra when preggo so the baby gets the nutrition it needs to grow healthy.

  • How is your weight gain this pregnancy? I ask because I was craving butter and *whole* milk (I typically drink skim) and when I went to the doctor I found that I was still needing to put on some more weight (I had lost 15 lbs my first trimester). After putting on 10 pounds in a month my cravings stopped so I'm sure it was about the fat content. Then on the other hand, if your weight gain is good you could just be having a normal random prego craving!

  • It's actual butter. Regarding weight, I'm on the border of being underweight. I've put on 2lbs in the past two months.
