People ask me all the time – What have you craved this pregnancy? And I can’t answer them, except with what food do I have aversions to….
….Roast chicken, BBQ pizza, lettuce leaves (especially Arugula/Rocket), herby tomato sauces.
In the past few weeks I have slowly been able to add these foods back into my diet. Except for lettuce leaves. I am hoping that after Rocky arrives that I get my appetite back for salad!
But interestingly what has also happened in the past few weeks I have woken up with a craving! Yes I have finally experienced a craving! This craving appears with no warning, it is sudden, there is nothing around me that makes me think oooooh I fancy some of that, it just appears in my head. I can smell it, I can taste it, I can imagine it in my hand, I can imagine it slipping down my throat and satisfying my big brain itch I have for…..CHAMPAGNE! FOR BREAKFAST!!!!
I promise you drinking champagne for breakfast is not something I would ordinarily do…ever really…except for in a bucks fizz or a mimosa.
The cool, crisp bubbles slipping down my throat, making me feel a little giddy from the alcohol has been my one and only craving so far. And as this is a craving I really shouldn’t be satisfying at this later stage of my pregnancy, I have not given into it. Not that I have champagne lying around my house or that I could go out at at the crack of dawn to buy some – which is just as well really because if Chris woke up to find me drinking champagne (on my own) with my cereal and toast for breakfast, I think he would send me to the mad house!
Rocky….your eviction notice has been handed to you – mummy needs some champagne! Stat!
