Re: Someone please take these away from me!
When I was pregnant I pretty much lived on Mexican food. The smell of almost anything else (except for fresh fruits and veggies) made me so nauseated that I would literally cry. I -could not- be anywhere near pizza or most fried foods. I only had about a month of feeling okay throughout my entire pregnancy. I also craved chocolate. I had always liked chocolate but had never eaten all that much of it until I was pregnant. My OB said that the chocolate cravings were probably because my body wanted more calories and she made me start drinking Ensure Plus because she thought I wasn't gaining enough weight. (I'm not a very big person and I measured extremely small with DS even though he weighed just a bit over seven pounds when he was born. I maintain that it was because he was living where my stomach was supposed to be. )
