  • Omg almost every pregnant person I have met said that they craved honeycrisp apples!!! Lol in my opinion honeycrisp is the best because it’s so juicy and flavorful.

  • Any pregnant ladies watching after the fact “gin gins” make amazing ginger chews. Tons of flavors, not expensive, life saving. In Canada they have them at Marshall’s and health food stores, also on amazon.

  • I now know my pregnancy diet was super bad. My 1st trimester was pretty much just saltine crackers. No morning sickness but pretty bad evening sickness. The rest of my pregnancy was beef jerky and V8 juice for breakfast every day. (Oh, the sodium). Then I would kill for Mexican food and steak hoagies. I dare anyone to find good Mexican food in Georgia especially when you’ve grown up in Arizona with tons of Mexican “Aunties” who taught me all there is to know about Mexican cooking. I live in New Zealand now and have goats. I made my first batch of cajeta last week……epic. (Cajeta=amazing caramel made w/goats milk.)

  • 1st trimester, just getting over morning sickness at 9w5d, still there but better than last week. I can only picture baby girl names and definitely craving sweet, fruity things (mostly smoothies). its the complete opposite of my last pregnancy, a boy:)

  • Its my second pregnancy now.. i am very much more in salty foods and when i go to sleep i am much more comfortable in my leftside.. i dont know if these is a boy? Or girl? I dont experience also morning sickness or anything..

    Coleen: oh it’s fine we grew up with this

    Me:I don’t care there was a freaking earthquake

  • I have been craving sugary things (pastries, donuts, cakes) like craazy these past weeks, but I stopped eating refined sugar to focus on calcium/iron/folate rich foods.
    I also recently developed the desire to have a daughter even though I always wanted to have a boy before getting pregnant.
    I’m willing to bet good money I’m carrying a baby girl at the moment!

  • I crave salty/spicy but then i crave fruits as “snacks” after every meal. It’s weird but I don’t have morning sickness, i feel sick at night though. Weird

  • My mom hated unions before she had me but when she became pregnant with me, all she wanted was unions. And I hate unions while my mom still loves them

  • I, too…
    Am obsessed with pepper

    Scrambled eggs are incomplete without salt and pepper, and I literally make a PILE of salt and pepper to dip chicken tenders into ��

    Picky eater hereeee ��

  • Hi, I think I’m having a boy. I’m two months pregnant. If I eat sweets it doesn’t make me feel good at all and I use to love sweets, if I eat sour it satisfies me more. I haven’t had morning sickness, it’s just been headaches.

  • 3 months on the way with my first, my cravings go as, hated tomatoes since first try as a toddler, now I cant get enough of them in my salads, same with cucumbers. Craving citrus yoghurt, chocolate milk or frappes, fresh fruit and veges, despise meat, heavy sauces, fermented kimchi and even my brekkie go to, eggs! I have a hunch from the world wide web of predictions I am having a girl, and from what I gathered on the first ultrasound. I would be blessed for a girl, as I am the eldest of 5 with 4 brothers. Always wanted another girly in the house ♡ But would not be unappreciative of a little man either.

  • Truthfully i don’t know its too early just found out yesterday..so maybe 4 weeks in..but today i was craving eggs, Broccoli and chicken breast with tumeric and cumin spice. Same as when i was pregnant with my daughter..actually it was at the time what made me take a test..cause every day i was craving same thing and nothing else

  • To all pregnant women watching this please dont be self conscious about on what you are eating, cuz you all deserve it, dont feel guilty or anything. ���� cuz at the end it will be worth it.
