I've never had a bun in the oven, so I have no idea if the pickles and ice cream cravings are real or not. My mom says no. She carried three and a half children in her belly for nine months (I count as more than one), and only gained 37 pounds. Her doctor was really strict, so she followed his orders exactly--with the occasional pint of Ben & Jerry's, of course.
So you know that my BFF Bethenny Frankel is preggers, right? Well, I've been stalking her on Twitter recently, and she's tweeted a lot about what she's been eating. Surprisingly, her menu has consisted of: cheeseburgers, fries, potato skins, big bowls of pasta and buckets of movie theater popcorn. Whoa, even the almighty,"I eat vegetables for dinner and I love it" Bethenny Frankel is normal. Now, knowing Bethenny, she's eating two potato skins, not 20, but I guess it's cool that she's enjoying her pregnancy and indulging a bit more than usual.
So yeah, I can't really relate to this topic yet, but I do tend to eat for two pretty frequently. Remember this post when someone actually asked me if I was preggo because I was stuffing my face with chicken fingers and curly fries at the movies? Yeah, that wasn't too fun.
So whether you can fully relate or not, what are your opinions on eating while you're pregnant? Is it a free pass to eat whatever the hell you want? I'd like to think I'll go the healthy route like my mom, but that might be a challenge. We'll see!
