I used to think of this as over reacting on the part of the pregnant woman, or probably just “paglalambing” (getting attention) to their husbands. Why will they suddenly want to eat a red grapes, or dip mango in catsup, or whatever freaky thing else. BUT then again, I have head of the hormonal imbalance happening during pregnancy resulting to these confusion of what they want, of the oversensitivity giving in to tears all the time or those conflicting emotions they show.
I have then proven that IT REALLY IS NATURAL though unexplainable. During my pregnancy, I have this every moment urge of drinking “orange juice with crashed ice”. Not any ice, not tube, not cracked…but crashed. Then there were times that I had to go look for a restaurant to serve me dried fish, crispy fried chicken, red egg, or rice toppings.
I cannot explain, but I just have to have that craving or I will feel really down. Have you have similar experience too?
