In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we thought we take a second to chew on cravings. In exactly 5 short days, those of us in the US will be indulging on turkey, potatoes, cranberries, stuffing, pies, and more. But, for some of us Preggers Mommas, we’ll be secretly (or not so secretly) longing for more. Cravings, oh cravings!
I recently could not live without onion rings. Yes, I said could not live without. In fact, I made my husband go to a local fast food restaurant drive thru two separate times in one evening. Yes, 2 times, 1 evening. I once worked with a woman who only wanted crab legs when she was preggers. She used to say that she was almost brought to tears when she couldn’t find anyone to go to Red Lobster with her!
These are fairly tame cravings and we know stranger ones exist, for instance, eating jalapenos on ice-cream or sorbet with chips and ketchup. Those may sound vomit gross to some, but to a few lucky preggers mommas, those bizarre food combinations are tantamount to the food of gods.
Have you had a bizarre pregnancy craving? Share it with us – we’d love to compare notes!
