Cravings and Aversions

An often-asked question these days is “Have you had any strange cravings?”

While I haven’t had any desires for weird combinations like pickles and ice cream, I do feel more in the mood for certain foods and beverages. But, it’s nothing so out of the ordinary that it could be defined as a “pregnancy craving” rather than simply a “Christie craving”. That being said, there have been a few must-haves and a few must-not-haves:

THE must-have Summer Rolls – Vietnamese spring rolls with snow crab, shrimp, mango, vermicelli noodles, bean sprouts, mint, spicy peanut dipping sauce!


  • Could eat for any meal, must have multiple times/week: Blue Fish Summer Rolls!
  • Closely followed by Blue Fish‘s Sundae Roll (tempura shrimp, cream cheese, king crab meat, topped with crab stick, chili, eel and mayo sauce)
  • Thai food (always been a fav but tastes even better these days)
  • Fruit (grapes, all citrus, watermelon, cantaloupe, apples, any really)
  • Belly-Bars (S’More to Love is my fav)
  • Pirates Booty (all natural, puffed puffed rice and corn snack)
  • Coconut Water (delish, chock full of calcium and minerals, more electrolytes than packaged sports drinks, more potassium than a banana)
  • Starbucks Carmel Brûlée Latte (1/2-caff, soy milk, no whip)
  • Fat Straws Soy Chai Bubble Tea
  • Pink Berry frozen yogurt
  • Taco Bell Nacho Supreme (I crave it, baby doesn’t, baby often wins)
  • Sleep (and lots of it)
  • Prenatal massages
  • Sailing (motor off, sails up, cool breeze and warm sunshine)


  • Plain water (tastes like metal, though I chug through as much as possible)
  • Most prenatal vitamins (so far, Nestabs seem to be the only ones staying down)
  • Avocados (bummer since I l-o-v-e-d them before)
  • Meat of any kind (while I didn’t prefer it pre-pregnancy, I loathe the thought of it these day)
  • Taco Bell Nacho Supreme (I crave it, baby doesn’t, baby often wins)
  • The registry (still too overwhelming)
  • Housecleaning (says a lot coming from a supreme neat freak)
