No, I am not pregnant, nor am I planning to be anytime soon. Just needed to get that out of the way.
I do, however, have lots of friends who are pregnant right now. I was talking to one of them yesterday, and her desire to eat cheese crisps all the time came up. I was remembering back to the things I craved when I was carrying each of my kids. (Yes, I craved things. Funny enough, even though I kept virtually nothing down for all 9 months, the stuff I craved stayed down slightly better than stuff that sounded awful. Just FYI.)
With Bria, I craved lemon yogurt. I bought it by the case. Not to be gross, but it was easy on my hyperemetic issues, unlike many other foods. I haven't eaten it since. I am not sure whether or not Bria loves lemon yogurt, most likely because I haven't bought it in nearly 8 years. I should get some and see what she thinks of it.
With Chloe, I stereotypically craved pickles. But not with ice cream, as the joke goes. I wanted pickles with tuna, and no bread. I tried really hard to not eat too much tuna, since they advise pregnant women not to, but I also figured since I couldn't keep anything down, it wouldn't hurt too much. Also, once we went to see a movie when I was expecting Chloe, and Joel asked if I wanted popcorn or anything. Obviously, I didn't, because that sounded totally disgusting. Well, he went off to get some for himself and when he came back in the theater, he handed me what I thought was a hot dog. I was like, why on earth would you buy me a hot dog?!? They make me gag even when I'm not pregnant! Then I realized it was actually a huge pickle, and I was a happy camper. Who knew movie theater concession stands sold pickles? Chloe loves pickles, by the way, and will often eat a whole jar of them in one sitting. She is indifferent about tuna.
With Sophia I ate a lot of cottage cheese and peaches. I think it's safe to say that that was the only thing I ever ate for the first 4 months or so, if I ate at all. Much like the lemon yogurt that I ate with Bria, it was easy to see a second time, if you know what I mean. Salad, on the other hand, is best avoided if you know you're just going to throw it up. Trust me on this. Anyway, Sophie really likes cottage cheese and peaches, too.
So, what were your pregnancy cravings? Did you have any? Do tell.
