On the Menu Today…


  • Pesto Bagel with cream cheese
  • Fruit by the Foot
  • Raspberry Lollipop (to ease the morning sickness)
  • Giant glass of lemonade


  • 2 Packages of Easy Mac
  • enough Goldfish to feed a gaggle of toddlers for a week
  • an italian cream soda (I hunted this thing down on my lunch… the craving set in around 10am and wasn’t giving up!)

Yep, I’m treatin’ this baby right… by paving the way for obesity!

I’m slightly confused by the random food cravings. At certain parts of the day, it’s all I can do not to sneak out of the office and go buy a fatty bean and cheese burrito from the mexican restaurant next door, and other times all I want is lemonade.

For those of you who have been pregnant, what have your freakish cravings been? Have you actually ever wanted pickles and ice cream? Have the rest of you ever witnessed a pregnant friend’s crazy eating habits? Help me feel normal here. :)

  1. Oh yay! I love hearing about your cravings. Keep eating pesto bagels! I want to see a bump! (and I’m glad to hear your are craving sweets, like a certain other blogger who is expecting a girl and craved sweets……..)

  2. Let’s see with Jenna…had to have cheese on everything!!!! The main items I HAD to have regularly were Potato Soup so cheesy it was stringy, corndogs, and anything else that had cheese. The smell of Red Meat made me vomit.

    With Dawson…there were fazes. I couldn’t eat much in the beginning I was so sick so I always some Chicken in a Biskit crackers. Then had to have red sauce very night in the 2nd tri, in the 3rd tri Chinese Food. Im not a Chinese Food person, but I HAD to have Pan Fried noodles with Soy Sauce. Then the last few weeks – PICKLES. Yep. And I hate pickles! And now I can actually eat them! But what me and lu always had after dinner…when everyone else was full, belgain waffles with peanut butter and syrup…YUM!

    It’s funny once you find something that tastes good…gotta have it!

    They say if you want fruity stuff it’s a girl, but that never worked for me. I never craved fruit.

  3. you’re so cute… I love your cravings! I’m glad you are posting these sorts of things about your pregnancy– I want to hear as much as I can!
    I don’t really remember any crazy cravings I had with either of my girls– the only thing I remember seriously craving was COLD things. Ice cream, milkshakes, smoothies– it all sounded so good to me. Oh, and every once in a while I would get gotta-have-it-now cravings for some fast food fries. however, I STILL get those, so I’m not sure that was pregnancy-related. hehe.
    anyway, you are SO normal. I was hungry ALL THE TIME, it seemed, when I was pregnant. Oh, lordy, the food I consumed! Actually, that was what first tipped me off to being pregnant with Emma: I ate like a whole bag of Doritos chips and was still hungry. Hmmm. :)

  4. I never wanted pickles and ice cream, or even pickles or ice cream at all. During my first pregnancy I craved Malt-O-Meal, Carnation Instant Breakfast and around midnight, pancakes.

    I can’t remember if I had any cravings during my second pregnancy, isn’t that odd

  5. You are totally normal. Now that I’m not sick feeling the cravings have come on full force and I want to eat all the time… I posted my cravings on my blog yesterday, but I thought of a few more to add to the list so it’s been revised just for you:

    In-N-Out cheeseburgers and vanilla shakes, sour patch kids, nacho cheese Doritos, Rice Krispie treats, Jelly Belly sours, rice and beans, tangerines, fruit in general, vanilla ice cream, asparagus, orange soda (I like the more natural kinds best like Izze and Orangina… I’ll tolerate the other ones, but they’re a bit too syrupy), root beer, apple juice, Cinnabon cinnamon rolls with extra cream cheese frosting, cheddar cheese, french toast, eggs with other stuff (like a bagel egg sandwich or scrambled skillet eggs with potatoes and stuff mixed in or a breakfast burrito with eggs… I can’t stand the taste of just plain eggs though), burrito supremes from Taco Bell (I actually even wanted these when I couldn’t keep ANYTHING down), quesadillas, Chef Boy Ardee beef ravioli, shrimp tempura sushi rolls, that vineagary cucumber salad they serve at sushi restaurants, salt water taffy, Lemon Heads, pasta with meaty marinara sauce, hot ham and cheese sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup, Trader Joe’s frozen mac n’ cheese, cheese pizza…

    As you can see it is a lot of cheese and a lot of carbs… and just a lot of food in general.

  6. Thank you guys for all the help, haha! I’m so glad I’m not alone in wanting fatty, cheesy things!
