@tnbellebee:  Oh dear. I’ve had a craving for citrus-y things lately, and I went through a phase where I ate grapefruits like oranges daily. Now I need to go get me some grapefruits!

There is this Mexican resteraunt back in my home state.  They make the best rice and cheese sauce that I mix together.  I’ve craved that like nothing else D:  And it’s impossible to get it because we live like 10 hours out. :|  Last night I ate jalapeno peppers off pizza.  I can’t get enough of hot and spicy.

I’ve liked citrus ever since the nausea went away about 14 weeks, but I won’t buy grapefruit so that I can’t rub it in for my husband because he takes verapamil and so grapefruit is a big no-no. I’ve been all over oranges, orange juice, and even tart berries lately though!

Citrus is good. I’ve been eating tons of clementines because they’re an easy snack. I also eat a lot more red meat than I did before I was pregnant – must need the iron since I take prenatals that don’t contain iron.

Grapefruit sounds yummy!  I’ve been into yogurt, pears, and peaches.  A few weeks back it was vitamin water and yogurt covered raisins.  I can’t believe you were into Jalepeno chips!  Spicy things are not tasty to me since I’ve been pregnant.

I’ve had waves of cravings, when I had nausea is was pretty much carbs (mostly bagels) because they helped me feel better then, it was anything pickled, extra points if it was spicy and pickled. Then it went to spicy, hot sauce, spicy tomato juice.. anything spicy. Now it’s fruit, mostly strawberries and pineapple- so yummy!! I never know what is coming next haha.

@tnbellebee:  The second we start TTC, I’m stocking up on every form of grapefruit I can find – juice especially! 

I can’t have grapefruit as if effects the proctection I get from my pill so the second I don’t need/want the protection, I’ll smell like a grapefruit too!

Oh and carbs! Biscuits, waffles, pancakes, rice, croissants.., not good since I’m a diabetic but my dietician says I’m good cuz I don’t eat large amounts. But when I’m nauseas that’s all I can eat.

@MrsDTMajor:  Yes!  If it isn’t spicey stuff, it’s sour.  I sat here and ate Sour Patch Kids while drinking lemonade.  and now I want those War Head candies. It’s out of control.

I’ve been all about the citrus fruit for my entire pregnancy so far (28 weeks on Tuesday). I am currently OBSESSED with grapefruit. Cannot get enough!

When I was pregnant I craved watermelon like it was insane, I thought for sure I was going to give birth to a melon.
