...or lack-there-of. For the most part the first trimester was without cravings. Between feeling dizzy and not having a taste for much of anything, I actually didn't even realize that I was eating something so out of my normal diet. It was actually DJ who told me how weird it was that I kept using it as a go-to meal.
There it is though, I'm craving corn dogs?!?! I have ingested a total of maybe 5 corn dogs in my entire life. If fact, I kind of thought they were gross. Now, I have found myself buying them at the grocery store and seeking them on every menu of every restaurant we visit. It's strange, but they are so g-o-o-d, GOOD!
On the other end of the spectrum though, I have had many aversions to food. It's starting to calm down recently and thankfully. For example chicken, that I have previously seen uncooked, really grosses me out. It started off mildly enough and I thought maybe it was just the chicken I was eating at that very moment, but now it had progressed to an uncooked poultry revolt. If I've ever seen the meat in a raw state I won't come anywhere near the stuff. Also my usual sweet tooth has all but disappeared. I've actually had chocolate in my house for a measurable length of time. So bizarre.
The start of the second trimester so far seems promising. I have started to be able to pin point what I'm hungry for, the nausea has settled and I have more energy overall. The picture above is not a representation of my new found energy.
Someone please share with me your wild pregnancy cravings!
