Pregnancy Cravings: The Good, The Common and The Strange

Pregnant Cravings
What food did you crave during pregnancy?

When you think pregnancy, you might think morning sickness, growing belly bump and food cravings. When you think of pregnancy cravings, you probably think pickles and ice cream — the stereotypical pregnancy combo.

It is estimated that nearly 68% of women will have a pregnancy craving at some point during their 9 months and they can range from very healthy & not worrisome (fruits and veggies) to weird combos.  Ali tries to combat her unhealthy cravings for more healthy options — others (like me) just went for whatever it was I was craving.

My weirdest pregnancy craving came during my pregnancy with Princess R. For whatever reason I needed to have a glazed donut… with chili on it.  A chili cheese donut. It was amazing (at the time) and I wasn’t going to let anyone stop me from having it.
