NEVER, EVER finish your wife's pregnancy craving! You'll be in a world of hurt! 😤😠😡🤬⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Jane has been craving lemonade soooo bad, when she got home from work, the first thing she did was go to the fridge to grab an ice-cold cup. But it was all gone! Now Joe has booked himself a trip to the grocery store, ASAP!😝⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ What causes these intense pregnancy cravings? Scientists are not exactly sure, but they think that your brain and taste buds are sending you signals of what your body needs to stay healthy and give your baby the best possible nutrients. Maybe Jane's need for lemonade was her body needing some vitamin C? Who knows!🍋🍋🍋⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Usually, these cravings are completely harmless. Yes, even your weekly craving for a Big Mac is fine! 🍔🍟, your body is probably lacking in salt. ⁣ ⁣ Sometimes though, women have bizarre cravings for non-food items like dirt or laundry detergent and that is a disorder called "pica". ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ That can be a dangerous thing because you might eat something that is harmful to you or your baby. Please talk to your health care provider if you are craving non-food items. If this happens to you it can be a sign of a nutritional deficiency, particularly iron, although this disorder is not clearly understood.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ If you are craving junk food I think it's totally OK to give in to that craving every now and again. As long as your overall nutritional intake is good, I believe that pregnancy is a time to let go a little bit and indulge! I know not everyone will agree with me, but I'm in the "everything in moderation" camp.🍩🍔🥗🍕🥑🥯🍒⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ What were your pregnancy cravings?
