Cupcakes and Cravings

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 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!


  1. Thank you, my wonderful pregnant sister, for dropping off some of your cupcakes. They were yummy. Your yucky feeling should start to fade away anyday now. In the the pizza. -Barbra
