Is it normal?

Is it normal to wake up and just want something random to eat? I am 38 weeks pregnant and yesterday I woke up and wanted hot wings and then today when I got up I wanted spaghetti. Is this normal?

  • Yep. Cravings sometimes continue awhile postpartum as well. You still have hormones around.

  • Yes, it is very normal! I am also 38 weeks and have had a hard time eating many things this pregnancy but now i am at the end and crave things that I don't like or normally even eat. I just woke up and now I want to mustard with anything. Weird, but I haven't really given in to much to my crazy cravings because some are just way to fattening and I am also afraid it will make me more sick too. And yes, this may continue postpartum because of major hormone fluctuations.

  • yes. PERFECTLY! Your body is craving a particular food and that's why you have cravings. :)
