Craving food thatís not allowed!


Is anyone else craving foods from the list of things meant to be avoided?!!

I want to eat tuna (tinned) all the time at the moment! Itís driving me crazy!! Iíve allowed myself one tin but now Iím not allowed anymore for another month! Hopefully it will pass by then.

Iím trying to figure out whatís in it that I could be craving, I had some salmon the other night and it helped a bit with the craving but it soon came back.

Luckily my other cravings are fairly healthy, apples, cereal, peanut butter.

Ladies tell me all your cravings and how youíre coping!!

Haha I love tuna! Midwife has said I can have a tin or two a week (itís fresh tuna thatís not allowed in pregnancy)...my genius husband opened a tin, crumbled cooked potato into it, cucumber, spring onion and sweet corn, mixed with some mayonnaise and it lasted a few days (in the fridge in an airtight container). Was yummy 😍😍

No Iím in the US (although Iím British) I think the guideline is one to two tins a month if you weigh between 120-140lbs!! My nurse the other day when I wasnít feeling well told me to up my protein, but all I really want is the tuna!!! Ha ha!

Oh that sounds so tasty! I think you have to just follow your gut (pun intended!) sometimes. I found this online...
ĎThe FDA had released prior guidelines about safe fish intake, but the latest recommendations finally address tuna. Women of childbearing age, pregnant and nursing women, and children may:

* Eat up to 12 ounces a week of canned light tuna and other low-mercury fish, such as salmon, shrimp, catfish, pollock, and fish sticks.í

Make sure itís the LIGHT tuna, not the WHITE though I donít know how much 12oz is, but sounds quite a bit lol

I’ve been craving pure junk. Haribo Tangfastics and Super Noodles both of which I wouldn’t even touch before pregnancy! Wish I was craving fruit and veg. In fact the thought of carrots and broccoli literally make me gag!

Um YES big time, I love avocado rolls from this specific sushi place. Like I live off of these things, and I've asked my midwife twice about it I was so desperate, but basically because of the possibility of cross contamination from the sushi rice I'm not allowed to have any

The first thing I'm asking for after this kid comes out is a huge tray of avocado rolls.
