Cravings

One thing that comes hand in hand with pregnancy are the cravings and when I first became pregnant I used to wonder what crazy cravings I would develop. Sadly as of yet my cravings have been a little boring. No nibbling on coal or chewing sponges! 

The only time my cravings have gotten a little crazy was when I ate half a lemon. I actually sent my other half to the shop to buy me a lemon. He came back, I scoffed half then had the worst heartburn known to man. I have also craved things I generally never eat such as tinned hot dogs! Normally the thought of them make me want to gag but one night it's all I wanted to eat. That is about as strange as it has gotten for me so far. 

When I was in first trimester it was all about the orange juice and ready salted crisps. I was suffering from bad nausea so they were two of the only things that I could actually stomach. Then that craving evolved and I began dipping my ready salted crisps into Philadelphia cheese. Very naughty. 

Next up in second trimester it was all about dairy. My favourite snack would be chopped banana smothered in Nutella and doused in squirty cream. Big tall glasses of milk and cheese butties. 

So far in third trimester it is all about the Crunchy Nut Cornflakes. My nausea seems to have returned so hopefully that will go away soon so I can continue on my epic food fest! 

Here are some of the delicious foods I have craved whilst being pregnant! Everyone loves a good food picture or ten!







What foods did you crave in your pregnancy? 

PS: I have really enjoyed using the excuse of eating for two on more than a dozen occasions! I will miss that one once baby is here!

  1. I had hyperemesis so with me it was what do I fancy (the thought of food even make me sicky) ..I crushed ice to make slushys, potted beef on toast?..jacket potatos..and a hell of a lot of ginger biscuits. Lemon pop and naughtily fizzy pop kept me going too! Ooooh bubble and squeak (fried sunday lunch leftovers) I made up sunday dinners just for that..nights in a row! X

  4. Oh my goodness you have me craving pancakes with nutella & bananas after seeing your picture lol! I love a good pancake. That's a question I'm going to ask my mum if she craved anything with me. I know my best friend craved meat so badly & she was a veggie too she had a love hate realationship going on with her at that point however when Sophie was born her mum can not stand the sight of meat again, odd eh?
