Food Porn for Pregnant Women

By ilanawiles |

My first pregnancy, I was pretty much nauseous the entire time. Absolutely nothing seemed appealing. My biggest challenge was finding nutritious foods I could keep down that wouldn’t give me a case of massive acid reflux.

Taste was not really figured into the equation since nothing tasted good. Even chocolate— can you imagine?

This time around, it’s a different story. The day we found out I was pregnant, my husband brought home a jar of pickles as a joke and I ate the whole thing by the time I went to bed. (I don’t recommend that; fifteen minutes later, I threw them all up.)

My cravings aren’t anything particularly strange. No barbecue sauce — drenched Snickers bars or anything like that — but they are VERY SPECIFIC.

If I want a tuna sandwich, there is nothing you can do to convince me to eat something else. If there is not a bowl of gazpacho on the menu, I may suggest we leave and try a different restaurant.

Below are my top twelve pregnancy cravings.

Pregnancy food cravings

Watermelon

No joke, I can eat an entire watermelon in one sitting. It's like sugar water— but healthy.

    About five months into my first pregnancy, I started craving tinned sardines in beer sauce. And I ate tinned sardines in beer sauce. The apartment stank. And I loved it. Mmmm. Spread onto black bread, with a cold lemonade or horchata. Yeah. It was tasty.

    It is my third pregnancy and after having two easy ones this one comes as a surprise.
    I don’t crave anything in particular or not. I have anti-cravings if that is possible. I’m pretty sure I can name all the types of food I can not stand to eat or smell right now.
    But somehow right now I am craving those pickles. Just the fact that I know the taste of pickles and they can not be different. Well, husband has to go find me some and very fast…
