I usually give up cakes, biscuits and chocolate. I definitely could do with losing a bit (I’m only a size ten but I have gone up from an eight and there is a definite tummy there). I’m 11 weeks pregnant. Would I be setting myself up for misery if I gave up my usual three?
It entirely depends on your cravings/if you are willing to break lent for a craving/if you are willing to drive yourself mad in a self imposed ban on a craving?
I'm forgoing lent this year as I'm 6 weeks pregnant and know that last time I developed a lot of cravings/only foods I could eat without being sick and I don't want to limit myself when I have no need to.
Thanks all. Problem is i ‘crave’ chocolate all the time - pregnancy or no pregnancy!
I think I will start out with all 3 and see how I go. Biscuits are the killer because there is an infinite supply at work. Thankfully my morning sickness seems to be getting better so I might not need my serruptitious Rich Tea stash...
Ok so I am scrapping pancakes tonight and plan to eat all the chocolate I can get my hands on. I’m going to start with a Double Decker then move on to Aero. Then maybe a peanut butter Kitkat Chunky. Maybe I can make baby hate it?!
I'm 23 weeks and am giving up chocolate, sweets and crisps. The only year I haven't managed is when Ds was born on Shrove Tuesday in rather dodgy circumstances and I wouldn't have survived his NICU stay without Fry's Turkish Delight.
