Funny story…I thought I had food poisoning before I even considered the possibility of being pregnancy. NOTHING would stay down for a whole month, and I had to do our weekly shopping with a scarf around my nose and running through the grocery store in a mad dash before I ended up in the public toilets from the smells.
When I eventually had my appetite back I would make several runs to the local shops to get what I craved that day..or sent out my husband.
Here is a list of my top pregnancy cravings I’ve had constantly throughout my pregnancy, and when consumed I felt a great deal of satisfaction and almost relief…
-WATER WITH ICE…and lots of ice so I could chew/eat the ice when it semi melts
-Mac&Cheese ( unlucky for me it had to be Tescos finest with croutons)
– Steak with peppercorn sauce. But I would settle for a big juicy beef burger (only if it had cheese on it)
-Sweet corn on the Cob with lots of butter and salt…eating almost four of the half pieces each sitting.
-Fresh Veggies with Chive Dip
-Spicy Cheese with salty crackers.
– Sour Candies/ Gummies
Now for the things I REALLY wanted…but couldn’t find in the U.K
- HOSTESS POWDERED DOUGHNUTS
- TACO BELL SOFT SHELL TACOS
- KRAFT/VELVETA MAC AND CHEESE SHELLS
- SOFT BAKED PRETZELS- you can buy these in the grocery store in the USA
- CORN DOGS…ANY COUNTY FAIR FOOD
Are you an American pregnant lady living in the UK and have a list of food you wish you had available here in the UK?
Do you know where I can find these things in the United Kingdom?
…pretty healthy stuff overall, huh? It’s like a teenage boy took over my body. I always find it funny to see what hormones do to your taste buds. What have you guys craved if/when you’ve been pregnant? Have you ever sent your partner out to get you something really crazy?
All I have to say is…the baby made me do it.
