Hey ya’ll! It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted, but I promise it was for a good reason. We found out in the fall that we are pregnant with our first and I could NOT be more excited. I spent some time to just focus on being healthy which did not make for too many exciting meals out or in so overall my food interest really plummeted. Not to mention the lovely all-day morning sickness I had for a bit where I wasn’t eating anything at all. Anyways, I’m back and eating more than ever! I have about 3-ish more months left in my pregnancy and just trying to keep the balance of pigging out vs staying healthy!
A lot of people keep asking me what my major cravings have been, but honestly there’s not one particular thing. I really miss being able to get sushi and italian subs (OH, and WINE), but I’ll rectify that first thing after our boy joins us. Did I mention we’re having a boy?! 🙂 Thankfully, the myth about no caffeine is just that, a myth. It’s totally cool to have around 250mg a day so while I did cut back I still enjoy a Chai Tea every now and again guilt free.
The only difference I notice is that I crave sweets way more than I used to. I usually am a bag of chips type of gal but recently I’ve been eating candy which is crazy to me because I never really ate that much candy.
Overall the second trimester has been great, but as I approach the third it looks like I’ll need to be saying ‘goodbye’ to spicy food. Let’s just say the acid reflux is very real to me right now.
Anyways, I’ll be posting more frequently now – please reach out on Instagram (@clairecraves) on any pregnancy, food or even LIFE tips!!
