I must say, I had no idea how challenging pregnancy. Before I was pregnant, I used to think "oh it'll be a breeze." What was I thinking? I'm tired all the time. I'm nauseated almost all the time and when I'm not nauseated, I'm eating. I never thought I'd ever say it but I'm tired of eating. How is that possible? This doesn't mean I'm cooking though. Oh no, being in the kitchen for about 15-20 minutes is about all I can stand. It's the running joke now when my husband asks what's for dinner that I'm going to say frozen pizza. The silver-lining...at the end of this we'll have a baby. I'm told it's worth it LOL
So let's talk cravings. Any mommies out there with any craving stories? My cravings come on super strong but usually only lasts a few minutes and then I'm over it. I was at Trader Joes and desperately wanted a cupcake. No way I was making them from scratch so I picked up a box of mix but by the time I got home I was too tired to bake. The next day the cupcake craving was back and I found enough energy to make a batch. The mix is actually really good. Not as good as homemade but close. I proceeded to eat 2 and then just looking at them made me nauseated. What is up with that? How can I want something so badly and then it turns my stomach? Just posting the photos for this blog makes me a little queasy.
The one constant craving- pizza. I could eat pizza all day. In fact, I think it's time to order delivery.
I heard an old wives tale the other day that if the mother denies herself something she's craving the baby will have a birthmark that looks like that food. Hilarious!
