I’m a girl who loves pizza! Forget fried food, I can live without it. But when it comes to pizza and pasta, I just can’t survive without! That’s why I bought the shirt I’m wearing in these pictures. Because in reality, PIZZA itself has a pizza my heart. Ha! So needless to say, our early dinner pizza party yesterday was just perfect!
It’s funny because we leave for Hawaii in a couple days, and normally when I’m a few days out from a trip where I’ll be wearing a bathing suit all the time, I tend to watch how many calories I’m putting into my body. But not when I’m pregnant! Honestly, that’s probably one of the best things about being pregnant. Obviously besides getting to have a precious baby at the end of it. But really, getting to eat a ton of food and then put on a swimsuit and not think twice about it is one of my absolute favorite things about being pregnant. That might not be super profound to say, and some people might give me a hard time for saying it, but it’s just the truth for me! Pregnancy is hard on me. It’s hard on a lot of women. Some women love so many things about being pregnant. Me, not so much. I loved my body a lot more when I was pregnant with Molly. I was mostly belly back then. But pregnancy is definitely affecting my body differently this time around and maybe all the pizza I’m eating has something to do with that. Ha! But at the end of the day, being able to eat a bunch of pizza and then put on a swimsuit and still feel relatively comfortable is something I just can’t do when I’m not pregnant. So I’m going to take advantage of these moments while I still can. So I’m proudly going to wear my pizza my heart T-shirt (btw, it’s on sale for under $25 right now and comes in sizes XS up to 4XL), and snuggle up with my little girl and poochie while we watch cartoons in bed and stuff our faces. Btw, how cute is Owen’s face in the picture below?! He wont take he eyes off my slice! Poor guy wanted some pizza SOOOO bad. He got a few doggy treats instead 😉
Molly doesn’t normally eat pizza. As you can see from some of these photos she was unsure about it at first, but she quickly realized how amazing it is!
Anyway, I wanted to talk about pregnancy cravings on my blog today! Man have I had a lot of them this pregnancy! And even though I’m eating pizza in these photos, I’ve actually been craving sweets a lot more than salty foods. A bunch of people told me early on in my pregnancy that I must be having a girl because I was craving so many sweets. But as you guys know I’m having a boy and that’s just an old wives tale.
My main pregnancy cravings right now are sour gummy candies and ice cream. I legit have to have both of those things every single day. So while I was thinking about my cravings, I started wondering what other people crave during pregnancy. Did the old wives tale hold true for you and did you crave sweets when you were having a girl? Or are you like me and crave sweets while having a boy? Any weird pregnancy cravings out there? I don’t really crave pickles anymore, but for the first few weeks of my pregnancy I just craved pickles and ate them straight out of the jar. I was a walking stereotype for pregnancy. Pickles and then ice cream! But not together!
Anyway, I just thought it’d be fun to share stories about our cravings on the blog today. I’m interested to see what you guys say. I’m gonna do my best to respond to every single comment today since I have the day off work. Although my most demanding and full-time job, a.k.a. being a mother, never ends so if I don’t respond to some comments for a while it’s because I’m tending to Molly.
Oh but before I go, I HAVE to mentioned these lounge maternity pants I’m wearing. They are THE BEST!!!!!! Can you tell I’m obsessed by how many exclamation points I just used? No really, they are the most comfy pants in the whole world. I mean it! They only have 2 reviews on Nordstrom’s website, but both are raving reviews because they’re just the best. They are a little long though, so you might to get them hemmed if you are on the shorter side. If you are tall, then you will be so happy with the length. I’m 5’7″ and they are a little long on me but I like that! Makes them extra comfy and I only wear them at home.
OK! Time to talk cravings in the comments below! Oh but first, check out the progression of Molly eating a bite of pizza below. Too funny and cute! She’s in HEAVEN by the 3rd photo!
