I get asked all the time – “Have you had any cravings?” I generally reply, “no” but thinking back there are a few:
- 7 Weeks: I was talking to Mariam the day after Christmas. I had told her a few days before that I was pregnant. She was being a great bestie and was asking me how I was feeling and of course asked the big question – “do you have any cravings.” I said, “no, not really.” She then asked, “Well, are you eating more? What did you eat for breakfast?” I replied, “mashed potatoes and pecan pie.” I’d like to take this moment to thank Linda for the mashed potatoes and Maggie for the pecan pie.
- 3 Months: I went through a sour cream phase. Nothing crazy. I wasn’t eating it by the spoonful or putting it on anything strange. But, anything that would normally come with sour cream sounded um-may-zing! Baked potatoes with sour cream, tacos with sour cream, etc.
- 6 Months: This is when my sweet tooth kicked in. Overtime. On my way to work I thought – a muffin sounds great! I haven’t gone out for a muffin in a while, so I spent the whole drive to work trying to think of where I could get one. Then, I remembered that the place across the street from the office used to make a mocha muffin. It’s been about 3 years since I had one but thought it was worth a shot. I got to work and immediately walked across the street. I asked, “do you still make mocha muffins.” They said “yes” and I almost jumped. Then they followed it with, “…but we’re out” and it took all my energy to not cry. I’ve gone back just about every other day for a damn mocha muffin and they’re out each time.
- 7 Months: This is where I am now and i’m in a ranch phase. If I could start every meal with a dinner salad and ranch I would be happy. Simple right? No! I never really ate ranch before (was more of a vinaigarette girl, but the smell is making me sick) and it’s not as commonplace as one might think. I’ve been to 2 restaurants this week and BOTH didn’t have ranch. BOTH.
