Kate's Pregnancy Craving Is...What Kind Of Biscuit?
Her father-in-law Charles, Prince of Wales, and his wife Camilla have been sending her boxes of the delicate shortbread made by the Prince's Duchy Originals line. Lavender is a traditional anti-nausea cure, so who knows maybe it works? (An aside: the picture in the Sun article is by far my favourite of Kate, she looks so natural there.)
Kate isn't the first mother-to-be to crave a sweet snack. Many pregnant women find cookies and crackers to be one of the few things they can get down in the harrowing first few months of pregnancy.
I was so thirsty all the time in my first pregnancy that I remember eating entire flats of peaches in a couple days. And then going out and buying more. I don't think a peach has ever tasted as delicious as that summer.
In my second pregnancy, I loved a Malaysian curry with mustard greens. The sweet, spicy, bitter combination just hit the spot. I have no memory of indulging in anything in particular in my third. Too busy I guess.
But I never had any really strong cravings that compelled me (or my husband) to rush out in the middle of the night to go find something. I think that pickles and ice cream is a cliche that movies use to make fun of pregnant women and re-enforce the idea of the hen-pecked husband.
But tell me, did you have any intense cravings?
Want more chaos? Last year, I gave my advice on how to get your babies to sleep, or at least how to survive when they don't. I didn't mean to, but I started some controversy. And I stand by my half-baked theories 100%.
