Pregnancy Cravings
Pregnant Ladies: What are you craving now? Have your cravings changed during your pregnancy?

For Mommies: What did you crave during pregnancy? Did your cravings change during your pregnancy? If you have more than one kid, did you have different cravings with different babies.

With this pregnancy all I want is yogurt and salads. Sounds health huh. Although the salads I want are probably not that low fat. I love them with lots of cheese, hard boiled eggs and chicken tenders on them. So I'm not being that healthy. i figure it could be worse though. I'm actually going for lunch today and getting a chicken tender salad..lol.

With Jackson all I wanted was pizza. I couldn't get enough of it and with Jacob I wanted pancakes. I really only had food cravings early in my pregnancies. didn't really have any strong cravings after about 20 weesk.

Re: Pregnancy Cravings
For the first few months I wasn't able to eat hardly any fresh fruits and veggies. They all made me sick. I survived ONLY on spaghetti with tomato sauce. Now that my nausea is gone I can't get enough of fruits and veggies! Cold oranges, red apples, mangoes, and frozen grapes are all I have been wanting to snack on lately. Either broccoli, squash, carrots or potatoes have been included in my lunch and/or dinner everyday for the past 3 weeks (lol).

What's really weird is green beans still make me sick even if I eat them with a variety of other things. It was the exact same with Clyde. He must have hated green beans because even during my 3rd trimester, if I ate green beans there was no way they would actually stay down. I craved healthy food during my first pregnancy also, but my #1 craving was ground beef. I wanted hamburgers or Shepherd's pie with ground beef all day everyday. Oh, and ice cream!

DH showed me a coupon sent to his email for a huge chocolate chip cookie served in a skillet with ice cream on top. He was like "OMG doesn't that look soooo good??" I said "Ehh... It does, but I rather have a caramel apple." <-- (One of my favorite treats in fall!!!!!!!) LOOOVE me some caramel apples, pregnant or not!!

That's great that you are craving healthy food Amy. Great way to stay healthy during pregnancy.

And the caramel apple sounds wonderful.

With Reagan I craved fried chicken sandwiches (which I NEVER eat) and salads with hard boiled eggs and ranch dressing.

With Addy, I craved tzatziki sauce and souvlaki (I made this a lot) <--- weird right :) For our babymoon, I made DH go to a Greek restaurant with me, we ate so much, but it was sooooooo worth it :) I also craved a pasta salad with salsa, black beans, mixed peppers and cheese, I made this A LOT too!

Re: Pregnancy Cravings
With Ethan in the first trimester, I craved healthy food---cottage cheese, fruit, veggies, etc. Then 2nd trimester I just wanted junk food! Haha. Pizza, chocolate, etc.

With Kody, I wanted lots of veggies in the 2nd tri after the nausea wore off. Then in the 3rd tri I wanted lots of dark chocolate! I'm still really into it now, I'm hoping the addiction will fade as my hormones get in line! :)
