Breastfeeding cravings were SOOO much worse than pregnancy ones.



I assume they would be the same for nonBFing moms after birth. Its all hormonal changes.

I would actually kill for a snack burger ultimate burger meal. I don't know why I'm craving a chicken and chocolate combo, but it's driving me nuts! I couldn't have worked in fast food while pregnant, I would have wound up the size of a house lol you must have some superhuman self restraint :P

I hadn't heard of BF cravings before. I was looking forward to not having the irrational craving for certain foods at inconvenient times lol. Hopefully once I'm a bit more settled they'll go away :P

BFing cravings were so much worse for me than pregnancy cravings, they should settle down after a while though. Mine were worse in the beginning when I was spewing copious amounts of milk, once everything regulated they pretty much went away.

Dude, SO promised me an icecream cake after I had DD and it took him 2 weeks before he got it for me. I was sooooo mad at him. When I finally got it I had the whole thing done in 2 days. One of the full size DQ ones, I think a 12 inch cake.

I haven't had one since before I got pregnant, the KFC near our place is pretty questionable and didn't wanna risk it lol. I used to eat them almost every day :P I'm not sure why I'm not the size of a house tbh hehe

Ohh those bread rolls.. YUM! They're so freaking addictive lol.



Oh wow, congrats! How'd you manage that? I can't lose weight to save myself, I'm just lucky I'm naturally pretty small. Still jiggly, absolutely no muscle tone, but small lol. I put on about the same with DS and I'm DYING to weigh myself but have no scales :( I'm hoping it was all baby and blood and guts :P

Sometimes you crave certain foods as it will satisfy what your body needs at the time

haha right after I had my second daughter I literally sat and ate chocolate all night one night. That's probably why I gained 30 lbs AFTER she was born
