I am so excited. I've had my very first pregnancy craving! Here's what happened. At night sometimes I wake up and my stomach is irritated and I have to eat a few saltines and then I can go back to bed. Two nights ago I was thinking how delicious cut up strawberries would taste instead of the nasty dry saltines that turn into a paste in my mouth. I seriously spent the rest of the night dreaming about how amazing strawberries are and how badly I wanted some. I had the exact same feeling last night too and this morning I woke up and said, "I'm getting myself some strawberries!" So I drove to the Whole Foods and got some divine strawberries and promptly gobbled them up. They tasted sooo good. It was like water to my parched soul. It felt so good to eat something that did not involve bread. I am just so pleased that I didn't crave french fries or something. Strawberries are a delightful thing to crave. They also don't load on the pounds. My doctor was very emphatic that I do not gain more than 20-25 pounds. I was A-OK with that! Less to gain, less to lose.
Thanks for listening to the ramblings of a very excited first-time pregnant siesta!
