Pregnancy cravings are one of those things that seem 100% delicious and satisfying in the moment, but once baby arrives, we start to question why on earth we wanted to eat pear slices dipped in horseradish.

We asked our Facebook community to share some of their pregnancy cravings and here’s what they had to say!

13 Cravings That Make Perfect Sense When You're Pregnant

“Mint ice cream with cinnamon toast crunch on it. So weird… So good.”

“The sour stuff off of sweet and sour kids but not the actual sour patch kid.”

“I dipped Oreos in salsa. If I didn’t have Oreos I would dip saltines in salsa and put chocolate chips on top.”

“Paper. The regular, lined, 3ring binder stuff was best… but in a pinch a post it note would do.”

“Fruit and ice water in my metal canteen with a rock in it.”

“Birthday cake and river sand. I have killed several birthday cakes. I haven’t given into the sand.”

“Watermelon and olives… together… in a bowl.”

“I craved the smell of eucalyptus and menthol or glass cleaner. I bought mentholated bath salts just to open the lid and smell them. I would cry if anyone actually used them.”

“Mott’s fruit gummy snacks. 4-6 pouches in a sitting, several sittings a day. And it better not be any other brand.”

“Wendy’s spicy chicken sandwiches. Every meal. Even Thanksgiving dinner.”

“I craved vinegar so bad with my son. I swear I could have drank it right out of the bottle.”

“Gingerbread cookies with french onion dip.”

“Hot wings and a bowl of Froot Loops in milk… eaten together.”

Is it weird that I’m hungry now? 😉 If you shared any of these pregnancy cravings, comment below!

  • We're all doing the best we can with what we have. Pass it on when you see another mom struggling. We could also use an ounce of encouragement.
  • We tried #BuildABear Pay Your Age  Day this morning and that wound up being a big NOPE (more in my stories!). That’s ok. We’ll settle for naps and another visit to the pool this evening.
  • Come 👏🏻 On👏🏻 Dads, do you feel the same? Makes us both so mad.
  • This one turns FIVE this month! Lately he’s gotten into Minecraft, which I kinda love because he’s bonding with his big sibs over it, but for a while it looked like it was taking over his passion for Mighty Machines (and all things construction and digging in the dirt) and that broke my heart because I’m not ready for this little boy to not be in love with those things anymore. The kids took a 2 week screen break (much needed and not nearly as awful as I thought it would be) and Lowell found his diggers and his dump truck again. All is right in the world now. I just want him to play with them forever, is that too much to hope for? 😌💙🚜 (Also, how cool is his Roadschool shirt from @hmschld ?! 💖) #loloyolo
  • Represent.
  • Happy 4th to you! May your neighbors abide by all city ordinances or at the very least only wake your baby once with their illegal fireworks. 🇺🇸
  • Let's hear it! 😭😭😭
  • He’s very good at taking off his socks and shoes and making them disappear. I think he likes it when people look at us like negligent parents. 🙄😆
