Mrs Dee's Corner -Pregnancy Cravings.

No Pregnancy is ever the same,even with the same person... 






Some Ladies while pregnant experience stronger taste and smell and food that once appealed to them becomes repulsive and unbearable....


I had no aversion to eating moimoi when I wasn't pregnant, but immediately I took in, I couldn't stand the smell at all....


I hated it so much and to make matters worse, each day while coming home from work, I had to pass the roadside where they displayed and sold it. That route was clearly one I couldn't avoid.


Minutes after I pass the spot, the aroma trails me and makes me spit non-stop.
 I never got tired of eating in pregnancy was fruits especially Udara.


Fruits were my 'saving grace' during that energy sapping and uncomfortable period. My hubby would pack them in their numbers and before you say 'Jack', I would have consumed everything.

There was even a time I had to be admitted because the excess eating of fruits caused diarrhea.
 

Some people cannot stand the smell of Amala and goat meat whilst pregnant,whilst some begin to crave some food that is incredible to the ears when one hears....

  1. Hey God, when it's time, let me have cravings for chicken, beans, goat meat, fruits and veggies.

    Let this my present long throat for shawarma, Ice cream, chocolate and their likes die in Jesus name.

    1. My best was spaghetti with ugu in palm oil with no meat, no fish.

      I set it with relish to the disgust of every other person around. I loved bitter leave soup and white rice and hot tea.

  2. But women will be renewed through child bearing if they continue in love, holiness with propriety..1 Tim. 2:15

    Yes, pregnancy and childbirth is a time of renewal of women.
    But you have to meet the conditions the Lord spelt out:
    *Love for Christ/your neighbor
    *Holiness -no defiling your body
    *Propriety -discipline in manners, speech, dressing as characteristics of godly women. See all those experiences as process of renewal, refinement, detoxification etc.
    My best times in life is when I am pregnant. After each episode, God adds to my beauty. Thank you Jesus.

      As if Jezebels, Karishikas, she-devils don't go through pregnancy and have successful deliveries. Sinners, women neck-deep in evil doing still concieve, go through pregnancy and have successful deliveries. So...shift jor. Mtcheeewwwwwwwwww...

    7. Its is well. Simple craving matter, has been twisted. You make christianity look hard.

      Delete
    8. @Saphire
      NO one is talking about "successful deliveries" or not here.
      Renewal goes beyond successful deliveries. Kardashians aren't the
      standard of God for life, the Word of God is. Tell us the meaning of
      God's Word in 1 Tim. 2:15 which you are scoffing at.

      For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,
      but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Cor. 1:18

      Romans 1:16
      I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation
      to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, then to the Greek.

      1 Corinthians 2:14
      The natural man does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God.
      For they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.

      Delete
    10. Did you just call @Foodie "perishing"?!

      You are really pathetic and schizophrenic. Meanwhile, I did not mention the Kardashians in my comment. Your dusty rusty sight is deceiving you. Go back and read.

      Delete
    11. @Saphire
      So are Jezebels and Karishikas your standard for living a godly life?
      Are they your ideology and spiritual identity? I quoted the Word of God in
      1 Cor. 1:18 and you said "I called ...?" But you just called my sight dusty and rusty...at
      least yours wasn't a quote, was it? If the Word of God says that all sinners are going to the Lake
      of fire, why should that worry me if I am a repented soul? Tell me please.

      Delete
    12. My prayer for you is that, you find God's Grace and unconditionally love.
      He said I will have mercy on whom I would have mercy on.
      Please who in the whole Bible was qualified for anything they ever recieved.
      Was it Rahab the prostitute who later was in the line of Jesus.
      Or Solomon the son of the adulteress, whom God chose over the other sons to be king.
      He told the Children of Israel to never marry from the gentiles yet He included them in the genealogy of Jesus.
      He is God all merciful.

      Delete
    13. @Foodie
      Yes, he is a merciful God but also a consuming fire Heb. 12:29
      The Rich man went to hell and in spite of his pleas, he never received a "drop of water"
      You don't continue in sin and spite his mercy.
      Solomon you mentioned above went into idolatry and abandoned him,
      He worshiped Molech and that meant sacrificing his children in the
      fire, for that is how Molech is worshiped.

  4. I binged on udara (agbalumo) as well when I was pregnant. It was in season then and I made it my staple meal.

    I didn't add weight at all when I was pregnant because whenever I had cravings, udara to the rescue.

    I never vomited as well. That was my first "missionary" journey πŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ

    Trusting God for the 2nd one soon πŸ™‚

  5. But is the symptom different when carrying a different gender? Myth has it that carrying a baby girl, gives you a hard time especially in the first trimester, but baby boy gives no stress.

    1. Thats not true,i almost gave up due to morning sickness,and its a boy.

    2. Maybe for some people, I've got 3 children and all different sexes but I had same symptoms and sickness for the 3. I vomited and was sick throughout all pregnancies until the day I gave birth, couldn't eat or drink anything, looked like a skeleton or malnutritioned person, couldn't even walk. Very horrible experience but I thank God. Last child is 15 now

      Delete
    3. Well for Me, the boys stressed my life, i was miserable through out, it was as if something possessed me and dictating what to eat and what not,

      Delete
    4. I had severe sickness (Hyperemesis Gravidium) in both pregnancies. First was a boy, I lost weight, vommitted thruout the pregnancy till the day of delivery. My craving was ice in this 1st pregnancy. My second pregnancy, a girl, also had Hyperemesis, so vomitting wqs throughout the pregnnacy till the delivery day. I had no cravings in this pregnnacy.

  6. When o was pregnant, I hated any food that contains ogiri. Oha soup and butter leaf, all of a sudden the ogiri smells like adult poop. Even after childbirth, I can't cook with ogiri again. Ogiri that I loved so much before.

    2. Don't be scared, pray that nature out of your life.

      My first pregnancy was hellish, what did I not face, I was also scared but 2nd pregnancy was Soo smooth from beginning to delivery even up to taking care of my baby.I prayed it out and I got my answers.the difference between the first and 2nd time was too clear.

  8. Lol, I remember my first pregnancy I was craving kenke(ghanian food) it was so bad,I could not eat any other thing o, my husband combed the length and breath of Gbagada looking for this food πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    This is a meal I never liked while growing up, even me ma sef couldn't understand it.
    My mum is a ghanian, so I grew up living with this food but never eating, I didn't just like it, but my first baby wanted it so bad. This craving lasted only for the first trimester, to my husband's relief.

    The guy had to buy it somewhere around obalende on his way back from work, the day he doesn't come back with it ehhhhh, I don't know, because I wait till he comes back in the evening before I eat.

    Also cooked veggies with uziza leaf, I can't remember exactly what happened but I just started hating the smell of the leaf, I must not perceive it anywhere or else I start feeling sick and nauseous.
    This feeling stayed for a long time, way after I had given birth

    Another one na garri, i love soaking garri normally but during my first pregnancy soaking garri with block was like heaven on Earth😁.
    could also not drink water, unless very very cold, messed up my beautiful voice in the process. It is well.

    Let me stop here.

    1. Me too, my voice can now be used to voice a serious agbero role! I drank crates of frozen soda and 5 alive berry blast during the 9 months and lots of junk snacks, especially chocolate. Even water had to be iced. My body sef was craving nudity and AC. My daughter has gone to the hospital twice and was diagnosed with needing more AC (no heat-rash o, just nonstop crying and fussing till we enter the AC halls of the hospital, she will be calm. We will still insist on seeing Dr and after thorough examination, they will tell us her body needs coolness, na wa).
      I miss my soft voice... now when I answer my phonecalls, people tell me to please pass the phone to the owner and some need convincing to be sure its me.

      When I was pregnant with my first, I enjoyed eating salmon fish the first few weeks but woke up one morning, opened the refrigerator, saw the salmon I was gonna eat later in the day and suddenly detested it soooo much. I hated it so much for the rest of that pregnancy but started eating it again after I gave birth 🀷‍♀️🀷‍♀️🀷‍♀️. Also craved french fries and ate a lot of ice when I was pregnant with my first. I like my food spicy when pregnant.

  9. Yeah so many women tend to crave for someone else food while pregnant! My friend can take her plate to 3rd or 4th house to beg for food they are cooking πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  10. I crave for nothing while pregnant .
    Eating is almost impossible .
    I throw up from the day of conception till delivery day.
    Immediately after delivery I try to make up for everything I missed while pregnant😁

  11. I'm pregnant presently I basically eat everything, before I got pregnant you can never see me eat beans ,but now eat beans at least 4 times a week . My husband had to complain that beans is much oo.

    1. I hardly ate beans growing up but became obsessed with beans when I took in for my daughter, still obsessed, had it for breakfast this morning with rice and stew

  12. I hated fish and meat so much in my first trimester. In fact I hated anything cooked with cow head or leg till today. I ate plain white rice without stew for the first 3months of my pregnancy. As time goes on I started tolerating indomie and fried egg with plenty pepper. I'm in my last trimester now 8months and some weeks and now I can eat a whole human being. I can't count how many times I eat in a day. I can't control my hunger pangs and if I fail to eat when hungry before you know it I will start having peptic ulcer pains that will take only the help of drugs and injections to relief me of the pains. Most night I wake up to take tea and break or corn flakes if I don't I must wake up as early as 6 or 7 am to eat breakfast. Even my husband is surprised with the way I'm consuming food now because I was the type that doesn't eat before. In fact I can take one meal in 24hrs😁😁😁😁 and I'm good like that. I went for my ANC on Monday and I realized I've added almost 20kg😭😭😭😭 like how did it happened? Me that was lepa shandy am now chubby by fire by force no thanks to pregnancy hunger pangs. Anyway, I'm grateful for the privilege of being used by God to bring another life to earth. Its such a wonderful experience of a life time. All women that desire to be called mom God will bless you all with the fruits of they womb.

  13. I ate Γ€gbalumo to the extent that my husband had to google the effect of it in pregnancy before he allowed me continue eating it..i eat more than 15 Daily
    Then I also prefer eating soup not prepared by me.. I ate Afang soup wella from restaurants
    Then I had a customer that supplies me banga Stew and Rice Every morning
    In the afternoon, I must eat Mango before anything
    Lastly if I go To Market, I must eat Rice and Stew from those Market buka before I leave oooo
    No wonder my baby came out weighing 3.9kg

  14. I singlehandedly ate 2 bags of ofada rice during my pregnancy. EVERYDAY ofada rice and sauce, to the point that they would prepare and package my food without asking me.
    The only other thing I ate was amala, 2 balls a day with ewedu soup. I would put my antenatal drugs in it (and occasionally, malaria drugs) to swallow as tablets makes me squeamish.
    I forgot to add, the food had to be so pepperish and hot, that the person heating it up would be weeping and sweating at the same time!
    Ah NG, you really saw something with that pregnancy.

  15. Does this cravings last the whole of the pregnancy journey or just for a period of time?
    Dear Lord, when it’s my time, please let me have cravings for Eba and Beans..

  19. I never had craving while pregnant. I am not a food person and that stayed even in pregnancy. Presently on my third journey, I just had pancake with tea at 12:50pm,first meal of the day. One thing that as been constant in all pregnancy is for the first 5 months I can't stand any type of stew, fish o, beef o, chicken o, none at all. I tried using palm oil to cook mine separately, got tired after some weeks. I derive no joy in any type of food. I just eat for the sake of eating. No joy whatever. This is been the most difficult pregnancy, others were a breeze. First one, I was a reservoir,could drink water as food and I would be ok. Second one, the water has to be warm or hot, any other temperature was a no go area. And this present one, if it's not tea, then it has to be cold water, chilled water. Note, I never liked cold water, I prefer room temperature water.
    Alhamdulilah for this gift. I do not take it for granted

  21. Fried rice (which I couldn’t care less about on a regular day); caprisonne and tea (has to be PG tips or nothing else)....can’t even explain this pregnancy, but it has been very draining on me, perhaps the advanced age has a lot to do with it :)
    Alhamdulilah, as always, for the blessings that flow from aboveπŸ™πŸ½

  22. Kai my craving is crazy and out of this world...when I was pregnant with my 1st baby I so hated d smell of lucozade and hubby bought the cartoon so I can be taking but I ended up dashing it out.
    I hated Amala as in it irritates me but during my preggy na Amala everyday..no wonder my baby came out ebony blackπŸ˜‚.
    The irritating one is I crave the smell of pit toilet and clay that rain beats..that smell after rainfall.ill going about looking for pit toilet to inheal the smell😫

  24. I had hyper emesis gravidarum in my two pregnancies. I was admitted and was on drips so I cldnt eat. I craved for Star lagger beer, just d thought of d chilled drink in a cup made me happy but my hubby didn't allow me drink it. I ate a lot of irish potatoe in peppered water stew. The fear of pregnancy is the beginning of wisdom for me now.
