What are your cravings? And do you always give in when given the opportunity?

I look at it like this, as women we generally spend a large portion of our lives worrying about our weight, and what we eat. Pregnancy is the best excuse to eat what you want and not care what others think, w/in reason of course. (I heard some women crave paint chips, glue, or soap. Which you may want to limit the quanities of those, I heard they are high in fat and calories, as well as sugar. LOL) Anyway, what are your cravings and do you give in?

  • W/ my 1st it was apple juice and popsicles. #2 Was ice cream for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks #3 Moolattes from dairy queen. I know not the best thing, but hey, I only drank one at a time. lol. #4 Now w/ this one It was mint chocolate chip ice cream, then it went to sour patch kids, then coke icee's, then apples, then sherbert, then apples again, and now a root beer float sounds really good. LOL. I'd also love to have an Arby's roast beef sandwich right now. Mmmmmmm. Darn it, I'm soooo hungry now!!!

  • With #1 I would occasionally crave meat or fried chicken. Nothing really with #2. With my 3rd I craved milk and fruit. I could literally drink a quart of milk a day and occasionally did. Or I would go to Whole Foods and get a package of precut pineapple and berries.

  • peanut butter and honey.. peanut butter and chocolate.. mint, chocolate, anything sweet.. tuna.. and yeah, usually I give in although I'm watching it now that I"m near the end and I want to give the baby's brain the best stuff for development that I can. I finally cut out the caffeine and sugar (well, most of the sugar) and am eating more protein and omegas and stuff like that.. but up until the day I found out that I gained 6lbs in 2 weeks I was giving in to EVERY craving.

  • I want spicy food. That's about it. Nothing sugary, definitely not dairy. While I had morning sickness, I pretty much ate whatever I could that would stay down - so a lot of junky, carb heavy foods. Now, I'm so glad to get back to normal and start eating vegetables again. Haha.
