Yup. This. I never avoided some of the things that they say to. Subway was my BFF.

I've waited four days hoping the craving would pass... unfortunately, it's not. So I am just going to fulfill the craving... lol.

Re: Foods on the no-no list during pregnancy.

If you're not eating fast food daily and/or are not unhealthy then I see nothing wrong with a little Taco Bell here and there.

I am normally a home made pizza from scratch kind of gal, but I totally devoured a Party Pizza the other day, the whole thing... by myself.

I definitely don't eat fast food daily (who has money for that with a baby on the way anyway? lol). I am not unhealthy, either. Just having issues keeping food down, ugh. Taco Bell was mentioned the other day, and since then I can't get it out of my head, lol.

That's correct.

That said, I didn't follow the guidelines. I ate rare steak, over easy eggs, and sushi all the time.

I don't remember where it was, but some country recently advised pregnant women to avoid all raw veggies as well (in response to the spinach/ecoli thing). I think the guidelines have gone WAY TO FAR. They assume pregnant women aren't capable of any kind of risk assessment... so they make black and white rules that cater to the lowest common denominator/worst case scenario. Drives me bonkers. But, I guess the guidelines can't exactly say that fresh fish you caught this morning is okay raw, but sushi from the Quik-E Mart isn't... apparently that's too confusing.

Sorry for the rant. This is one of my pet peeves. All this was just to say, eat what you like how you like. Stick to whole foods as often as possible. Don't get drunk/do drugs/play with mercury thermometers and you'll probably be just fine.

You know what, when you have a hard time either keeping food down or getting hungry enough to eat much, I say go for what strikes you.
