Another realization I've stumbled upon during this second pregnancy: cravings are REAL.
With Austin, I didn't crave very many foods but I did have a tendency to want comfort foods from my childhood. We ate a lot of fast food so I was all over McDonalds. lol This time, I'm actually having those intense cravings that I've always heard about. It's like I'll be sitting there and something comes over me. And it doesn't matter who has to go get it, what time it is, or how much it'll cost...I. HAVE. TO. HAVE IT.
But unlike "typical" cravings, mine have changed each week. Weird, right? For example:
Week 6: I wanted mushrooms. I ate a raw mushroom straight from the fridge. This is only significant because I usually don't like raw mushrooms. I like them sauteed with onions and garlic. And I inHALED the mushroom trio pizza from Kashi. Seriously. I practically salivated whenever I saw it in my freezer.
Week 7: KFC got a TON of business from me. I even called them when they were closing and begged them to stay open if I promised to come in right away. Yea...me likey the 3 piece wing combo with potato wedges and a few cobbettes. NOOOOM!
Week 8: I really want a sandwich and popcorn. Oh, and chocolate with whipped cream. I didn't get my sandwich, but I did nom on an entire bag of popcorn. And the hubs made brownies and I had *cough* two with whipped cream. OMDrool.
I wonder if they'll keep changing or if I'll find a nice medium somewhere in there.
