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..
0danielle0: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!
This! I craaave sweets like crazy! I NEVER eat candy bars or ever buy them. Now every time I am at the store I feel the need to purchase a twix bar! agh!
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'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.
sage08:Yes ! I crave chocolate and Pepsi like crazy !!! Before my pregnancy i hardly ever ate chocolate and I never drank Pepsi ! So weird !
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.
Prairiebabymama: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!
Nope...I'm having a boy and all I want is sweet stuff - cake, cookies, ice cream...
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!
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!
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!
