It's been 10 Days...

...since I had a drop of caffeine! This means that I have even cut out chocolate!!

OMG, I am craving some so bad right now - I went down to Starbucks with a coworker just now (we have one on the first floor of my office building) and I got some oatmeal and passion fruit tea, but I was DYING to get a caramel macchiato!! I had greatly reduced my caffeine intake to 1 serving a day at the beginning of the pregnancy, but then I started to get a bit lazy about it and was drinking more than I should have, so I decided that the only way to control it was to cut it out. It's been 10 days - you'd think the major craving for it would have stopped... so why am I just dying for it right now???

Is there anything that you have cut out during pregnancy that you are craving??

Not really craving, but I do miss wine...a LOT! I have a case of my favorite wine sitting in the wine rack taunting me. I really miss having a glass or two in the evenings!

I haven't really cut anything out! I've just been eating certain things in moderation. Props to you for cutting out caffeine... I still need my fix every morning (I drink tea, though)!

You're a stronger woman than I am! I still can't fully give up my coffee. I was the person who would drink a pot a day by herself though. I drink about 1 cup every other day, and tea on the off days. Without it I'm so tired I'm falling asleep standing up!

I'm very proud of you. I have tried to give up caffeine but I can't do it. I have cut down alot and changed from drinking soda to tea.. one small step.

I miss wine, too, but it's always been kind of a special occasion or night in with the girls kind of thing for me, so I rarely just had a glass of wine at home...
