There is no doubt that pregnancy is a time filled with miracles, wonder, and excitement. And anyone who has ever been close to a pregnancy knows that it can also be a time of weirdness, worry, and unmentionable things that we'd rather not discuss in polite company (or ever).
But anyone who has experienced pregnancy firsthand (we're looking at you, ladies) knows that it is mostly a time filled with eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch, hot melted cheese on any available vessel, and just about anything pickled and/or spicy.
Pregnancy cravings are all too real and can be overwhelming. Anything can trigger a craving, and nothing can distract from one.
A pregnant woman is basically an avant-garde food artist. What may seem strange is actually just brilliant creativity at work.
Most of us have had #PregnancyCravings… What’s the strangest pregnancy craving you’ve had? https://t.co/RVuVdflQ5k— Indi Mamma (@Indi Mamma)1478371816.0
Some people crave fresh fruits and vegetables. Most don't.So I, uh, have this friend who only wanted to eat Dunkin Donuts toasted sesame bagels and cream cheese while she was pregnant. Embarrassed to go to the same drive through multiple times every day, she strategically triangulated the nearest DDs to her house and hit them in a randomized pattern. Many times. Each day. For months. So many bagels. Mmmmm — I mean, she said it was delicious.
Sometimes an expecting mom needs a little support (or permission to give into that powerful craving).
Some food cravings are simple, easy-to-satisfy, and straightforward. Anyone can crave a hotdog!
I still cant believe i cried so hard for a hotdog at 2am last night. My first actual pregnancy craving 💀— 𝚢𝚎𝚜𝚎𝚗𝚒𝚊. (@𝚢𝚎𝚜𝚎𝚗𝚒𝚊.)1515712694.0
Some "food" cravings are seriously nuts. Let's hope this woman resisted her urges.Or she could hang out in a laundromat and eat some TUMS. Not all cravings are for food. But as much as dryer sheets can make one woman drool, the same smell can just as easily make another woman vomit. Pregnancy is fun!
But what do you do when you crave imaginary things?I've never had a hankering for cartoon dishes, but the Mad Hatter does seem to enjoy his saucer. Maybe he's onto something.
Sometimes pregnancy cravings are color coded and extremely specific.
Craving tropical juice. NOT fruit punch. Something yellow or orange in color. If yellow, an orangey-yellow— Pregnancy Cravings (@Pregnancy Cravings)1494873600.0
This series of messages is basically every pregnant woman.
