I'm pregnant and craving fast food burgers. What should I do?

I am so embarrased at how many fast food burgers I've eaten lately. All I want to eat it a Whataburger with bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomatoe, onion, jalapenos and mayo! YUM!! And don't forget the french fries and large lemonade.

I know this is not healthy so what do I do? Is there a way to curb the cravings? I tried making turkey burgers at home but they just don't taste the same and I can't believe how strong these cravings are. WHAT DO I DO?

  • Eat the burger!!! I know it's not that healthy but if you make up for it in other meals and take your vitamins, you'll be okay and so will baby. Honestly, I ate lots of burgers while preggo the first time and he was perfect. 8 lbs 10oz, hehe maybe he ate some too but he was great!

  • eat one! lol :)

    one burger isn't gonna hurt (hell more than one isn't gonna hurt) eating one will help make the craving less too.

    my first pregnancy I survived on Chic-fil-a chicken nuggets & tacobell chili cheese buritos LOL

  • Eat the damn burger. There's not gonna be anything you can do to curb your cravings, that's why they are cravings. Before you know it the baby will be born and your cravings will be gone and you'll be wishing you ate those burgers. So eat and enjoy.

  • Eat it if you want. Just make sure you are getting enough good stuff too to meet all your body's needs right now, and don't indulge every day. I put on over 50 lbs with my first pregnancy because I couldn't get enough vanilla soft serve LOL. If I had it to do over again, I still would have indulged that craving but not every day. It was hard to get it all back off.
