  • Even when we aren't pregnant we always want what we can' have :)

    I hate when I got those cravings. I always want spicy or salty.

  • Why can't you have sweets? Do you have gestational diabetes? A little chocolate is healthy. Frozen yogurt isn't that bad for you, you can even make your own. Of course you shouldn't have a ton of sweets but as long as you are having a normal pregnancy there is no reason to eliminate sweets. If you are worried about weight gain fat has 3X the calories of sugar. However you do need healthy fat like omega-3 in your diet.

  • I am not a sweet eater which is probably why I only have boys too, lol! But I do crave salty and spicy just like I do before my periods too. Sucks because of trying to watch salt intake, even though I am not on any restrictions.

  • I do this when I am dieting too. Can't have sweets...that's the first thing I want. Cut out starch...I want potatos.

  • I've been craving a HUGE bowl of mac and cheese, homemade like my dad used to make it. I have a wonderful dairy sensitivity I developed with DD 1- last time I ate something with dairy in it it upset my stomach so much I had BH for a few days :( I feel you on the no no cravings lol.
