I had some smarties on Thursday. Quite a lot of them and they gave me a headache, which I put down to the sheer amount of smarties and all the crunching.

But I had a chocolate minimilk this afternoon and have the same type of headache.

Surely a mini-milk wouldn't be enough to give me a reaction, if that's what is happening? I used to get insomnia if I didn't have chocolate every day. What's become of me??!! shock

The first headache was the righteous wrath of the gods for eating Nestle.
The second one was brain freeze.
Eat Green & Black's.

I'm so sorry pinspotty.

Could you try fudge?

Actually, it could be the sugar which is sending you a bit wild. You must listen to your body.

Spidermama Sun 27-Jul-08 19:10:23

Green and Blacks. Good call Fabio. Lots of iron in that.

If it's the chocolate it could just be pregnancy, I cannot stand the stuff, the smell makes me want to vomit and the thought of it melting in my mouth can make me wretch! I was't a mad chocaholic before but really enjoyed my choccie when I had it. Now it's not allowed in the house! But it may be the sugar - in the first 24 weeks sugar used to give me a cracking head ache - I took it as my bodies way of saying stay away from it.

Hopefully it may wear off only LO arrives.

Well, having been virtually unable to eat chocolate at all since pregnancy I am less sympathetic Hopefully for you it will pass.

green and black with cherries - then you can put it towards your 10/10

pinkspottywellies Sun 27-Jul-08 19:16:21

Listen to my body? But it's talking b*llox!!!

oopsacoconut Sun 27-Jul-08 19:41:28

I know mine is too - it made me eat 125g of cheddar cheese - and i HATE cheese!

pinkspottywellies Sun 27-Jul-08 19:44:20


I think I'm going to have some hot chocolate and a chocolate biscuit and see what my body reckons to that!!

I went off chocolate when I was PG Pink

And coffee

All I wanted was fillet steak most of the time hmm

Normality resumed pretty soon after the birth though

pinkspottywellies Sun 27-Jul-08 19:58:20

I always want filet steak all the time FK except when pg cause you have to have it well done sad

MingMingtheWonderPet Sun 27-Jul-08 19:59:17

I could eat your share for you if you like?
All heart me!

e14mum Sun 27-Jul-08 20:12:39

I totally went off coffee and chocolate whilst pg.

Dark chocolate made me want to retch.

Instant coffee (like other people making it in the office) made me have to breathe through my mouth or leave the room.

It all came back though a few months later!

hang on - there was a woman who was pregnant and a vegtarian and she craved meat so to allow her to have it her partner became a vegetarian for the pregnancy so she could have the meat he would have had - who was it? Was it someoen famous or one of my friends.

Any way - long and short of it pink don't worry I shall consume your chocolate share whilst you are pregnant so markets aren't adversly effected.

I will have a mars delight tonight - okay?

If this baby tries to stop me eating Nigella Quadruple chocolate cake when I'm bf I won't be amused! I'd better be back to normal by then.

star6 Sun 27-Jul-08 20:34:52

BBBee what's 10/10?

BBBee Sun 27-Jul-08 20:40:55

sorry - it is like 5 of your 5 a day but me and pink adn some others pretend try to get to 10 a day.

Guadalupe Sun 27-Jul-08 20:50:16

I couldn't eat chocolate when pregnant, made me feel shit

star6 Sun 27-Jul-08 20:53:06

Thanks BBBee.
I can only eat dark chocolate now... milk chocolate makes me sick. although still tempting for sure!!

EachPeachPearMum Sun 27-Jul-08 21:18:15

I went completely off all sweet stuff with my first pg- couldn't eat chocolate until dd was about 3 months.
This time (15 weeks) I am completely off chocolate again... but not sweeties!

bikerunski Sun 27-Jul-08 22:23:29

I've gone off chocolate too. Ironically, lost so much weight due to sickness in first trimester that consultant told me to eat lots of dark cholcolate. I used to love Green and Black's Maya Gold, but havn;t touched it for months. Theres been a half eaten bar in the kitchen since March!

This is a very savoury baby, it loves crisps, marmite and cheese!

It was Phoebe on Friends who was the vegetarian and Joey who offered to give up meat!! (How very sad that I know that!)

BBBee Mon 28-Jul-08 18:01:03

not as sad as me thinking it was someone famous or one of my frineds!!!!!!!!!!
