this baby was built on.... - Page 2

post #21 of 47

My first thought was "my fat stores" because I've had zero appetite for most of my pregnancy and have had to force myself to eat.  The first food that comes to mind, though, is chocolate!  She's been built on chocolate and milk.

This baby was built on:

 

Lots and lots of peanut butter, cantaloupe, cheese, cereal, tons of potatoes, bread, chicken, and there for awhile Arby's loaded potato bites. (not good but I ate them at least once a week IF I could limit myself to that Sheepish.gif)

 

oh and gallons of water!

Ooooh, fun!  Dairy--lots of cheese, milk, and yogurt.  Fruit smoothies with powdered greens added. Meat. Eggs. Chips and salsa/guacamole. Recently spinach salad.  And . . . if this baby had it's way lots of ice cream would have to be added (but I have been resisting this particular craving because of the sugar--I have had several yeast infections that seem to be specifically triggered by sugar)

Water, canteloupe, apples, lots of turkey, muffins, cookies, ice cream, potatoes, grapes, and strawberries eat.gif

aah, this is fun to think about...she was built on yogurt, muesli, strawberries, lots of lettuce, WATERMELON (i ate till i dropped), cheese, eggs, yummy bread ( i m getting hungry as I write this), joe's o-s, milk, ice cream, apples, cham tea, buffalo sauce, bananas, pasta and kosher dill pickles....i did drink lots of water but i can not say i enjoyed that a lot...

 

every time the instructor said "now your uterus is the size of the water melon" ...i kept giggling this weekend since she is pretty much made of it :-)

Ice cream, milk, chocolate, bacon, eggs and ice cold water.

post #36 of 47

For me it's been:

Greek yogurt and lots of it, salad, free range-grass fed beef, grilled cheese, organic whole milk, clementines, frozen yogurt, ice cream, potatoes, chile rellenos,

 

 

I always thought it was weird the ice thing but proved to be true for me when I was severely anemic (pre pg).  It's a pica behavior associated with anemia.....fixed the anemia and the desire went away--so strange.

post #37 of 47

Yikes! I also had some other pica related urges (wanting to eat a brick and dirt), didn't think the ice thing was related. I have been trying to up iron in my diet, I'm not even a vegetarian, I am actually quite the meat eater! I also got some floradix samples from the birth center.

Also, I am shocked at how often nachos have shown up in this thread!

post #38 of 47

baby has been built on...blueberries, eggs (mostly fried or sunny side up in a sandwich....), sandwiches!! yum, with dave's spelt bread....beets, avocado (in any and every form), every kind of smoothie, plums, cherries, blueberries (i know i already liusted this, but seriously i can eat 2 pounds in a day), strawberries, cashews, almonds, dandelion drink (it's my pretend coffe, i can make it taste exactly the way i doctor my coffee........kale. CHOCOLATE. and yogurt/fruit/flax oil parfaits. mmm. baby wants to be made of figs right now, but they are not quite in season and still quite spendy.......

 

 

   i did just eat dinner, yet i am hungry again.

post #39 of 47

I will be surprised if this baby doesn't come out an actual watermelon!  I've eaten a RIDICULOUS amount of watermelon.  I mean a TON.  Prior to it being in season, I have pretty much craved fruits and milk for almost the whole pregnancy.  I've eaten a lot of fruit and I drank way more milk than I usually do.  I had an aversion to eggs in the 1st trimester and that oddly seems to be back a bit.  Other than that, it's been my usual foods.

When morning sickness was at it's worst fries from burger king were the only thing that sounded good to me. It was ridiculous.

When I was pregnant with DD I swore I kept Red Robin in business! I could not get enough.

I can't get enough ice! Although I have had problems with anemia, so it could be partly that, but I fill mason jars (the BIG ones) full of ice and carry it around with me, just crunching away. It's so satisfying.

This little boy: French fries (I know, I know), spinach, boca burgers, anything with black beans, and lots of ice.
