Orange You Glad

photo by Ove Topfer
I definitely have a pregnancy food craving this time: oranges and orange juice! I eat 2-4 oranges and drink 2-5 glasses of pulpy orange juice a day! Normally I only drink 1 glass a week and only buy oranges in the summer. Now oranges always taste good, don't leave a nasty aftertaste in my mouth, and stay down. And oj comes back up sweet, not acidic, so if I eat something that I think will come back up and come back up extra gross, I will drink some oj to cancel out the taste.

This baby has me eating healthy all around too: fruit, raw veggies, sweet potatoes, squash, cashews, oatmeal. Sometimes I will eat meals, but usually I just snack. Occasionally I will want to eat something rich, but once it's in front of me, I change my mind. My normal self misses eating dessert, but my pregnant self has no desire to!

Do/did you have pregnancy cravings?

oh my goodness, you lucky woman! I wish healthy things appealed. It's so weird, fruit doesn't even taste good anymore. Well, maybe frozen grapes are the exception. :)

Ok, I shouldn't say you lucky woman, but I am a bit jealous you are craving healthy things.

If it makes you feel any better, we had DiGiorno pizzas the last two days at my request!

Oh most definitely! I craved fruit more than anything, especially "exotic" fruits like papaya, mango, passion fruit, etc. I craved pickles in the beginning and I also craved Chinese food once or twice.
