Delightfully Chaotic

Pregnancy Cravings, and Sickness

on April 30, 2007


Jennisa at A Little Mommy Talk has a question for the week and this week is describe your pregnancy cravings, sickness, etc…  So here I go with mine.

Sweet Pea: I had a very easy pregnancy with her, sure I felt sick but thank goodness I didn’t have any morning sickness.  The things I craved more than anything were chocolate milkshakes-I’m talking everyday.  While I was pregnant with her I was working for Red Lobster and it got to the point I didn’t have to ask the bartender to make me one.  Within 5 min. of me being there they would make one for-mmm delicious.  And I had to have ice cream, and not just any ice cream but Blue Bell’s Candy Bar-which they don’t make anymore grrr.  For the first 4 months I was pretty tired and always felt kind of run-down.  But overall pregnancy totally agreed with me, and I loved every minute of it.

Chunky Monkey:  No morning sickness with this one, however I do feel like I started showing a lot sooner with him.  I felt pretty tired for the first few months but overall I loved it.  As for cravings broccoli (weird but nutritious), and Mexican food.  I couldn’t get enough chips, salsa, and queso.  As for sweets not so much, maybe like once a week or once every two weeks I would be craving some kind of sweet and when I did I went on sweet overload.

Oh and with both of them I had some major heartburn, which I didn’t know what it was until I explained it to the dr.-go ahead and call me a dork it’s cool.  She was born with a head full of hair, while he barely had any.  (You know what they say if you have bad heartburn then that means they have a lot of hair.)

    I added you to MOMMY TALK! Just stop by the site once during the week, usually by Thursday, to pick up the latest question for the following Monday. Then, on Monday, post the question with your answer!!!

  2. oh the heart burn… how I remember that. I couldn’t go ANYWHERE without Tums in my pocket! My cravings were for vinegar. Strange, yes?

    Pregnancy cravings are so bizarre… With my second, I was absolutely hooked on my daughter’s cheese strings. Now, back to normal, the very smell of them makes me want to barf a little.

    That, and Gryfe’s bagels (local to Toronto). I used to polish off a half dozen before noon. On a daily basis.

    OMG Alissa I totally forgot to mention smells! I’m not a big fan of fried chicken which is weird because I live in Texas and everybody loves food that’s fried. Ok well before I knew I was pregnant with Sweet Pea, David came home with chicken strips from Chicken Express, and the smell almost made me want to puke. To this day I can’t stand the smell of anything from there-I can’t even walk in that place.

    I totally craved vinegar too! If my husband made salad dressing with oil and vinegar, it had to be more vinegar for me. And anything pickled. That sounds so gross to me now!
    I too had the heartburn. So bad I think that for nine months, I kept tums in business!
