The McRib and My McPregnancy Craving...

I think we all need to take a step back sometimes in our pregnancy and realize when we made a critical food craving mistake, and last night was that time for me.  Knowing my husband would be at his company Christmas party until around 9, I knew I was on my own for dinner and took it as an opportunity to be the cool mom and treat the kids to some crap fast food.

Who doesn’t like a happy meal when Daddy isn’t going to be around to bring the 5 o’clock smiles? 

So McDonald’s it was. I was going to get my typical chicken nuggets, with sweet and sour sauce, but when I pulled into the parking lot and saw the advertisement exclaiming “The McRib is back!!” I couldn’t McResist it.

Boy did I make a McMistake!

I dove into it like a teenage boy who had not eaten all day long, and within two bites, I was done. Finished. Grossed out. The barbecue sauce had fooled me, and the mystery meat sent me straight for the bathroom praying I didn’t throw the small bit I had indulged in right back up. Thankfully I kept it down like a champ. I am still trying to decide if that is a good or bad thing though.

This was the first craving I have had this pregnancy that turned out to be truly horrible, but I guess I can’t really blame anyone but myself. Seriously, what about a McRib actually sounds appealing?

So ladies, spill!  What was your worst pregnancy craving… you know the one you regret till this day!
