I didn’t really crave anything in this pregnancy other than apples. It’s the only food I can remember in the last nine months wanting more than anything else. With Oli, I craved curry mixed with a serious amount of cookies, like I couldn’t have them separately. When I cooked the curry, I would break up the cookie crumbs to add to it.
Weird, huh? But at least it wasn’t a lump of coal or a sponge. Did you have any cravings?
But this time around I’ve not noticed a serious urge for anything other then the times I needed apples, the good ones too, not the cheap children ones that I usually chuck the child. Do you know how much a trolley full of apples can add too? Would have been cheaper to of had the curry/cookie craving again.
I have wanted stuff at times which is like a MUST EAT; you know each time I filled my gut with a McDonalds it was secretly baby wanting it not me. Cakes have been a major urge, especially towards this end. I’ve gone off sweets completely and have replaced any snacking with cakes, biscuits and chocolate. I am hoping this is just a pregnancy thing and that once I’ve popped, I can easily step away from the biscuit tin.
Suppose eating has been strange for me the last nine months, of course at the beginning with that Hyperemesis Gravidarum I wasn’t eating at all, and the baby had his way of easing me back into eating gently by wanting me to eat nothing but salads. The other week saw me have a really funny moment with food and by funny I mean I just couldn’t stop eating. I would finish my tea but then want to continue eating; it would get to the point where I was sat on the sofa with a picnic suitable for a family of 7. That was just strange, but then I guess it was all just another sign that baby was on his way. Either that or along with his daddy, he finds it funny that I have now had three chins.
