Seriously... If it were possible, I would cook and eat everything in my house today. My husband asked me what I wanted for breakfast and I listed off, like, 50 things and I was dead-serious that was exactly what I wanted!
What are you craving?
[On a side note--I had my 36 week appointment yesterday... I'm a whole centimeter dilated and 50% effaced. Sam's head-down and engaged in my pelvis now, but the kid has the longest torso ever... his butt is stuck up under my ribs and I don't eve know how that's possible! I'm also measuring 39 weeks! (Although that might be a fluke 'cause the nurse and i were gossiping while she was measuring and I don't think she was paying attention, lol). Midwife felt around for him and just loooooooooong and skinny still.]
Lmao!! I also cannot stop eating which is scaring my husband because I'm also so sick to my stomach. This is gross but I will tell you what I had for a snack after I went to bed last night.
-leftover Olive Garden ravioli w/2 breadsticks
-1/2 can Pringles
-2 juice boxes
-a kit kat
-lots of water
It's so gross, I had contractions all day yesterday so I just put it all on being so stressed out.
Just cereal and fruit this morning.....so far.
I get ravenously hungry too. Usually in the evening. In the mornings, I usually don't want to eat anything, and all I have for several hours is just a cup of tea. Maybe a piece of toast. But then come lunch and dinner...watch out, fridge!
Mrs. B, that sounds similar to my evening meal/snacking combinations! Last night before bed all I wanted was a glass of milk...and a bowl of peanut butter and honey mixed together. I ate it with a spoon. Yum! LOL
Purrrr...maybe this is your body's way of gearing up for L&D! My doula says that when moms get an irresistible urge to nest, then labor *generally* follows within 12-24 hours. Maybe the eating is to fuel up? You never know!
I have a similar appetite as you, Joy... mornings start off slow but by late afternoon and evening I can eat everything. I've been hitting the mint chocolate chip ice cream pretty hard lately, but it runs out fast (it doesn't help that my dad thinks it's OK for him to eat it, too). Lately I'm having the problem where I have no idea but I want, but it's something specific and I'm not getting it, and I don't have it at home. SIGH.
