Well, my first [of many] cravings didn't really happen for me until toward the end of the first trimester. Suddenly, I had a very intense need to eat tomatoes. Freshly sliced tomatoes; nothing of the canned variety. I guess there was nothing out of the ordinary about it. Tomatoes are delicious. Healthy, too. But what was weird was I wanted to have it with everything else I ate, regardless if it complemented the food or not. I had a side of my sliced tomatoes with local dishes like Tinola, fried or steamed fish, grilled meats...the list is endless. I've also used it a few times to cook my own flavorful creations, like this really yummy Mediterranean Chicken recipe. Try it out some time. You don't have to be pregnant to enjoy it.
My next craving attack came around late June. I remember getting dressed at like midnight and asking my husband to take a drive with me in the search for some refreshing Dalandan Juice (a Filipino orange - which really isn't orange but green - that looks like a big calamansi). After searching on Munchpunch, we ended up at a Chili's Bar & Grill. We ordered a couple of their super delish salads and I had me a tall glass of fresh Dalandan shake. Sure, I had a really bad case of sore throat in the days that followed, but, man, was it worth it.
After that, I pretty much ate everything and anything. LOL
Now, they say that husbands feel pregnancy symptoms sometimes. This was very much true for mine. He'd be tired, cranky, sleepy, and, yes, he had his own bout with cravings, too. His, I have to say, were even worse than mine! Worse in a sense that they were harder to find and usually came at the oddest hours. Imagine me, his pregnant wife, scouring the streets for Cebu Lechon and waking up at 5AM to satisfy his Kimchi munchies. LOL I couldn't complain though. I mean, I got to eat, too, so it was all good. Now, that's a story to tell our baby, huh.
