Hi Everyone! My name is Amber. Im new here. I am 35 yrs old and pregnant with my 3rd baby. I am 14wks and 5 days pregnant. My due date is Nov 6, 2013.Its been a road but, am very greatful to be pregnant and doing well. Here are some of my questions...Might be silly but, need some other pregnant womens advice. Okay , Im craving Doritos, Chinese food, Watermelon, Chocolate milk and pizza - NON STOP...I have NOT yet indulged in the doritos, Chinese food or chocolate milk. I buy the tru moo and I dilute it with milk so not getting all the chocolate..Oh peanut M&Ms are a craving too... I know everything in moderation but, I seem to crave this stuff quite often...I do eat healthy too but, I have a lot of meat adversions...Don't like the look of it or smell.. but a General Tso's chicken sounds yummy right now or pork fried rice....Is this stuff safe to eat.. Oh cant forget poptarts on occasion and nutrigrain bars... Any advice or others that crave the same....I don't smoke or drink!!! I would think these things would be okay,
Welcome to the wonderful world of P.O I love this website. You should definitely join your Birth Board and they will be going through the same types of things. I think that everything on your list is fine... Including the stuff you won't allow yourself to indulge. It's fine to eat unhealthy sometimes It's a matter of eating SAFE.
