Weirdest Cravings While Pregnant


pregnancy cravings


I definitely had pregnancy cravings, but nothing too weird.

Odd cravings are super-common, though, and while no one really knows for sure why, it's often attributed to preggo hormones and a heightened sense of smell. (The latter can work both ways, causing you to jones for something or gag at the mere thought of if.)

Some weird CafeMom cravings?

-- Chocolate-covered fried chicken

-- Turkey and cheese Lunchables

-- Cheetos with green beans

-- Rocky road ice cream with watermelon

-- Artichokes (turns out this one's not entirely uncommon -- they're very high in vitamin C)

-- MacDonald's french fries dipped in vanilla ice cream

-- Sweet Tarts

-- Salads with sunflower seeds

-- Popcorn and hot chocolate

-- Canned pineapple

What about you? Had any weird cravings?

I just really wanted spicy food. My friend brought over a jar habanero stuffed olives at the beginning of my pregnancy and I craved those the rest of the 9 months. Lol.

I have now been having a craving for Pear Wine (MIL's to be exact.) I also want my cottage cheese, but we can't afford it.

Biscuits and gravy. If they have it at the resturant we're at, I order it. I've also been diggin' into some Cherry Frosted Pop Tarts. I ate a box of 12 in a week. On the healthy side, though, I've been eating cooked broccoli (not fresh) and peaches & cream oatmeal.

French onion soup -- every day -- at least once a day. This has been going on for almost 2 months and I'm only 24 weeks!!!
