Health specialists aren’t exactly sure why pregnant women experience cravings in early pregnancy, but I’ve always imagined that whatever I wanted, the baby needs. That being said, if you are consuming an entire chocolate cake, this may not be the case! For each pregnancy, I’ve experienced different cravings.
THIS is why I decided to start a recipe series dedicated to the weird and strange things that Preggers choose to, or rather their bodies choose for them, to eat.
