Oh.. I feel so strange. It must be the pregnancy, I feel like I want to eat everything, and I eat a lot more than I ever used to.

And I also go from fries to burgers to salads and especially almonds. Bring them on! It's mostly salty foods that I am after, but I could eat 5 meals a day.

I'm afraid this will affect my baby in the next few months, did anyone have these experiences? When do they stop, how can I control my desires better?

My husband keeps telling me that it's something normal, but I don't know, I don't want to put too much weight either.

Pregnancy's not a time to watch ur weight. It's cravings time! :-D. Anyway, u can eat moderately, anything u want. The 5 meals a day is not a bad thing either. Just make sure they're small meals and drink lots of water. Eat plenty fruits too. That'll ensure u don't eat too much food. Adding some weight as ur belly grows and ur pregnancy advances is healthy for u and ur baby. Cheers.

My baby boy's here! :-D

I agree - Holding out on your cravings will get you nowhere. In fact, I find that I end up eating more in the end when I try to hold back because I'll try to eat everything BUT what ever I'm craving only to then end with whatever I wanted in the first place. Make sense?

Drinking plenty of water is important - but I wouldn't worry that you're harming your baby. Although that being said, I wouldn't be eating McDonalds 3 times a day either. You want to keep yourself healthy throughout your pregnancy as well!

For the past few days, my little girl has been definitely craving fruit and icecream. It's good that the warmer weather is coming!

Thanks for all the support.
