Cravings


Growing up I always had heard of pregnant women and their cravings. It was fun hearing about other women's experiences. But now that I am through most of this pregnancy I have found that I rarely craved certain foods. I have been hungry! I don't think chocolate counts since I craved that way before I was pregnant :P I have been asked a couple of times if I have had any cravings for certain or funny foods. And I have to say its just been more of a particular food that I have always liked. I have a love for cereals, I could eat that 24/7. But this morning I was *craving* my dad's homemade biscuits. Its his grandmother's recipe. They are the lightest flakiest biscuits I have ever had. We would eat them with butter and molasses. So I think I can officially say that this morning I woke up with a *craving* for my dad's biscuits. I only wish I could have indulged! :) Now I want to know if any of you mom's had particular cravings! Please tell!

He's biscuits are delightous, no wonder you carve them! When I was prego I craved donuts, plain baked donuts. I broke a year of being gluten free to indulge this craving and I have been fighting to get off gluten ever since =(

Also hard candy, which is funny because I don't like hard candy really.

It's funny I wish I had taken advantage of the middle of the night cravings more, Damian said he was really looking forward to those wierd middle of the night things lol!! I was mostly just hungry ALL the time with Xander, not as much with Madison, which is funny because I was not only pregnant but nursing Xander still too!! I was bad now and then and have Damian stop off for soda and candy after work sometimes!! I also loved citrus.. sometimes went to the store just to buy a bunch of anything citru :) Ever heard of Pica? It's a craving of non food items such as soap during pregnancy.... yikes, talk about a nutritional deficiency going on there :0

with my last pregnancy I ate broccoli with a peanut butter thai sauce with tons of cayenne...my kids thought it was so nasty but it was so tasty "to me"

Mamajil, it sounded good up until the cayenne sauce! :) With such a lovely quiver full that you have, I can imagine all the different cravings! :)
