ok, sweets are starting to become very very bad. why am i craving them so bad???

I been eating alot of sweets lately a.k.a candy, apple pie, ice cream, so on. I throw in fruit and normal dinners as well but while im at work or just need something. starburts, reecee's (spelling) sugar daddys. sweet cereals. adding small amounts of sugar to my rice crispies. my bf is starting to get on me about, which he SHOULD. he insists that i start drinking more water. which i will. i just dont drink alot of anything during the day. gosh i sould like i just dont care about me or this kid now do i?????? ughh... I know to much is bad, and could possibly make me or the baby a diabetic. but im not sure why im eatign them so much. today im doing good. got my bottle water with me at work along with watermelon and blue berries.. yummmmy...... could it just be cravings? i guess wed ill need to discuss it with the doc.

  • I've been the same way. Starbursts, skittles, frootloops, and getting into the kids trick or treat candy. I just substitute my cravings every once in a while with strawberries, grapes, bananas, apple slices w/peanut butter. I know what you're going through and it's not easy, I just keep thinking about being more healthy for myself and the baby than to get carried away with sweet craving temptations. Good Luck!

  • i had this until i was 16 or so weeks pregnant, never eaten so many sour haribo in my life, it could just be a weird but wonderfully tasting craving :)
