3rd Trimester

Eating more junk?

I NEVER used to eat junk.  The past few weeks though, I've been stopping for fast food more and more often and all I want is crap food! Is anyone else having this issue?  The idea of a veggie is soooo gross!

Re: Eating more junk?

  • I ate almost all carbs during first tri- pasta, bread, cereal, Taco Bell. The thought of meat or veggies literally made me gag. Nowadays, I crave sweets like they're going out of style. It's terrible!
  • Yes ! I crave chocolate and Pepsi like crazy !!! Before my pregnancy  i hardly ever ate chocolate and I never drank Pepsi ! So weird !
  • I can't get enough junk food, and I ate very healthy before I was pregnant. I try not to worry about it too much, I drink a lot of skim milk, take may prenatals, drink lots of water and try to allot myself a ration of junk food.

    It seems that everything we "plan" for dinners and other meals are just so unappealing..

  • I had two peanut butter crunch moon pies in one day.  Embarrassed  I'm not usually a sweets person but those just really hit the spot.

  • Yeah I find myself dining more on ice cream and chips then anything else.  I blame it on the weather.  I just don't want to cook when it's so nice outside right now.
  • I'm right there with you. All I crave are Five Guys Burger & Fries double bacon cheeseburger :) Yummm
  • me too! I ate totally healthy before I was pregnant- a complete heath food nut. And now, I still eat healthy food but i supplement it very nicely with crap! I try to eat right for baby, but it is just not tasting as great anymore.

  • I was all about relatively healthy food in second tri.  At about 32 weeks, I started to crave fast food, baked goods, ice cream all the time.  It has subsided in the past week or two, I think the hot weather has a lot to do with that though.  I hate eating heavy food when its 85 degrees outside.
  • I don't know what the deal is but I crave salty tortilla chips and french fries.  I'm only allowing a small indulgence on it once a week since it's not healthy but it's sooooo good.  Oh and hamburgers? Can't get enough of them, one a week is too much probably but it's hard to say no.  Fortunately I also want green stuff like asparagus too and that I indulge in a lot.
  • I'd always tried to eat decently healthy so the baby would get a variety of nutrients. I didn't have the best food habits before I got pregnant, so it was a challenge. In the mid/early stages of pregnancy, I was totally turned off sweets and all I wanted was citrus. The sweets cravings came back though, and with the acid reflux I eye my citrus in want but remember the pain that comes after! 

     Now i've made a bad habit for myself by having a chocolate shake in the evening sometimes to curb the acid reflux, and having a donut when I pass by my fav donut shop.... I'm letting myself do it for now until the baby is here, but man, that's going to be hard to break when it's all done!!! 

  • I have been craving salt.  So french fries and potato chips.  I gave in to my cravings a couple times thinking once I tasted the foods I wouldn't crave them any more... it didn't work.

  • I'm also the same way. Anything sweet I crave, especially chips (spicy nacho doritos) and gummi worms! LOL But i just try not to think about it to much, and drink plenty of water! Meat disgusts me, to even think about it.

  • Are you ladies noticing a trend here? All my baby wants is chocolate and ice cream, does that mean there is a girl in there? Look at the older posts... all of the girls came from moms with a sweet tooth and the few boys came from moms wanting burgers and chips hahaha! Perhaps the old wives' tale is true and sugar and spice and everything nice, that's what's girls are made of. I have to wait three more months to find out if my theory is true!
  • I was a pretty healthy eater & went to the gym/ worked out at least 3x a week but then we ran into financial problems & really couldn't afford to stock up on food plus I didn't feel like cooking with my morning sickness & hightened sense of smell .. plus after i could start eating again I craved fast foods.  But after what seems like months of that, even though every now & then I still want an In & Out burger or Taco Bell, I'm tired of fast food.  Don't  get me wrong, I swear I'm at McDonald's (at my job) everyday around the same time for my 2nd breakfast lol But as of the last few weeks I swear I'm eating more sweets (mainly sour & gummy candies)... I'm  having a boy so I hope it all goes to him.  I'm kinda worried though about all the sugar. Don't wanna get gestational diabetes or do the glucose test ...
  • Well I am having a boy and want sweets like crazy!  Non-prego I could rarely eat sweets, I am very much a salty person and a meat and potatoes kinda girl, but with this baby, he takes after his daddy with a ig giant sweet tooth!  I fantasized about a cupcake while a fat kid was holding it, making me feel and almost act like a fat kid myself!
  • I am craving salty things during the day...  Pickles, Doritos, Pretzels, Veg Bouillon Broth, Ramen Noodles, and sweet things at night.  I think I'm baking like every three days.  Oh and lots of water.  I still force myself to eat lots of veg at the regular meals though, I just eat the salt and sweet at my in between meals. :)

    i was the same, never drank pepsi, now the last week, all i want is pepsi and chocolate.i craved it all last week and wouldn't get either for myself, but by friday i gave in, i only have 4weeks left, so why not. i wouldn't mind before i was pregnant i was a health nut, always eating really healthy and goin to the gym. 

    now i am hungery all the time and want sweet stuff, i just try to keep it to a minimum.

  • I'm right there with you! This is my first pregnancy and I am a pre-pregnancy health nut! I try to eat well, but I can't stomach anything remotely healthy! My husband is loving that all I want is sweets and fast food. We just ordered pizza for dinner...used to be forbidden in my house! I just try to focus on keeping food down and move around as much as I can. I'll worry about eating more healthy in the 2nd trimester!
  • omg!!!!  I am in the same boat, even though I haven't TOTALLY given in, I am trying not to restrict, so a little sugar here, a little junk here...I am TOTALLY addicted to animal crackers, and eggs, and the thought of a salad makes me want to spew!!!!!!
  • Definitely!!! Before I was pregnant, I loved salads and fruit, and I worked out every day. Not now... During the day I try to be good (nuts, frozen fruit, peanut butter and crackers). But for dinner, all I want are carbs... pasta, Taco Bell, Genghis Grill noodles, tortillas. It wouldn't be so bad if I had the energy to work out!
  • I've been craving anything sweet and stuff like tacos.
  • I dunno, I couldn't stop eating chocolate and caramel (and hot cheetos, for some reason), and I had a boy XDD

     

    I think it's just your body trying to tell you it's okay to be comforted by crap.

  • i am too!! i've never been a junk food person. but now all of a sudden i want french fries all the time, and cinnamon buns like crazy!!! i hate it!! haha i want nothing besides those two! and i've been crazzzzyyy thirsty. all i want is water though, so i guess that's a good thing!

    missed m/c at 9w2d .. d&c 11/30/10 :(

  •    wow, you guys made me feel so much better - as i am writing this i am enjoying a bag of kettle corn and a bottle of gingerale for my second breakfast! I am totally with all of you who only want junk. I *heart* carbs right now! and i just discovered that I love bread & butter pickles - buying my first jar of them last night made me feel like a "real" pregnant lady. ha!  

       Little trick for sneaking in vegetables: when I make mac & cheese (which is often!), i like to mix in some small pieces of veggies (baby peas, chopped mushrooms,etc.). It might sound kinda weird, but it is pretty tasty - and it helps me feel less guilty about all the pasta & cheese!

    happy snacking ladies!

      

  • I have bad cravings too, moreso for chocolate and pies. Its horrible, like I cant control it!
  • Yes! All I want is snacky foods! I even ate at Long John Silvers and I haven't had that food YEARS!!! I guess this baby doesn't care about my waist line!
  • This post made me feel much better! I've been craving junk like crazy! And I swear they put something addictive in the Taco Bell meat! Lol

    I have craved green beans a few times lately, so let's hope my cravings start moving in that direction. I try to keep reminding myself to eat for the baby, not for me, but it's so hard when healthy foods sound disgusting most of the time!
