Pregnancy Cravings

Pregnancy Cravings

Oh the joys of pregnancy. My first pregnancy craving was avocados. I hate avocados by the way. I craved Fournos Bakery chocolate crossaints, mild Nandos chicken, bream fish, watermelons, mangoes, peaches, granadilla, meat, salty staff, fruit smoothie, cow legs, maize, shawarmas, sour sweets, ice lollies, cinnamon rolls from Cinnabon and pineapples.

I hated cheese and burgers. I also hated the smell of burning incense sticks. I couldn’t stomach fish and hated the smell afterwards.

I cried because I got the wrong flavoured icecream.

I know a friend who craved ate boiled cabbage her whole pregnancy. Here is a complied list of pregnancy cravings (some are weird) from real moms in my mom groups.
