If my husband was drinking a beer around me, I would grab it and smell it ... not necessarily because I craved them, but because I missed drinking them, lol!

the funny thing with Kandice is....I had no cravings...no morning sickeness...nothing...the only thing is...I was unbelievably tired....I would sleep all night...wake up and could go back to sleep an hour later....

With both my pregnancies, I craved Mexican food! I swear we ate at Mexican restaurants twice a week! Both my sons loved Mexican food from a very young age (a lot of young children do not like it) and I always say it is because I ate it so much when I was pregnant!

My babies were born big--

Gabe was 9lb, 8 oz and was 22 inches long and Reece was 9lb, 14oz and 20 inches long. I had to have them both by C section because they had such big heads!

I just opened a Doctor Pepper....and Ih ave to say....I was craving cola and soda pops like crazy....of course I didn´t drink it that often....but from time to time I drank it.....I asked the mid-wife if it would do any harm drinking cola or coffee sometimes...and she said...it wouldn´t harm the baby if I drank a coffee per day....I could even drink two....I never did it to that extend....but I a cola or dr pepper´s from time to time....I also have to admit...that I drank a quarter of a glass of sparkling wine on new year´s eve........not much...just a little

i don't think a couple of alcoholic drinks per week does the baby any harm, i would say that smoking is the one to watch out for.

with my sister she craved tangerines with the peel still on, she used to eats bags full of them.

my cousin is pregnant at the minute and she is craving big macs, which is strange because she absolutley hated them before she got pregnant. she has had one every day for the last week. the baby will come out looking like one!
HAHAHAH, well I love Big Macs at the mo! But I certainly couldnt eat one every day.

You shouldn´t do both.....two alcoholic drinks per week are way too much....as much as I know.......smoking is terrible too....but I heard that doctor´s advised women who are heavy smokers....to not stop immediately....but to slow down very slow on their consuming cigarettes....

I was a smoker too....I found out I´m pregnant.....and stopped it immediately.....didn´t care for it....didn´t need it....didn´t want it....the only thing I did once was drinking this new year´s eve sparkling wine....

I know about one baby....because her mother smoked....the baby was too small and had to be taken out early....I think around 6 weeks....she was very small....and it took her more than a year to catch up....the worse part even.....6weeks before giving birth....I was in the hospital with a terrible stomach flu.....and there i saw the women with the babies that were too small becos of their smoking.....and they went outside at least 8-10 times each day to feed their addiction....made me angry
