Mega sugar cravings!!

I gave up refined sugar and artificial sweeteners in February, and really wasn't missing it at all. Now I'm 10 weeks pregnant I would bite your arm off for a Fanta orange and a chocolate flapjack - or an ice cream with a flake in it - or a kitkat... I think I might have actually groaned out loud going past the soft drinks aisle in tesco!

Please tell me this will pass! Did anyone else have mega cravings they managed to resist? I can't give in, I'm way less moody now I'm off sugar, plus if I give in I'll put on about 6 stone in my pregnancy - all my weight with DD was strawberry milkshakes I'm sure.

Can you eat some natural sugars? I don't believe in ignoring cravings - you must have them for a reason. That is what I tell myself every time I'm reminded of the peanut butter and salt and vinegar crisp sandwiches that I ate with dd!

Oranges and strawberries take the edge off temporarily but aren't really cutting it. A peanut butter and salt and vinegar crisp sandwich sounds pretty good!

I was craving sugar (and still am!) I read somewhere that it's an old wives tale you are having a girl, and with me they were right! I have had to curb the sugar intake but I am scared I'll get GD

With DD I craved chicken, oranges, and cheese and onion crisps grin

I've craved savoury foods with dd and my current pregnancy (also a girl!). Chocolate suddenly becomes the food of the devil.
