What I would really love is chocolate, but even the smell makes me want to puke at moment, in fact most meal times are a bit of a trial. the baby certainly loves food and just the mention of 'dinner' 'eat' makes my bump look like a boxing match - especially 'cake'. Now before was pregnant was one of those really lucky people could eat anything and not gain a pound (not as glamorous as sounds - high metabolism, don't eat pass out. Makes stomach bugs hell) and had a sweet tooth. Most of those foods have been a no go, but discovered our local bakers does a lovely soft cream cake that I not only can eat with only slight nausea but the baby likes too. I know, giving an unborn child what amounts to pure sugar when you're unable to be very mobile is madness. I ate the first one expecting within the next half hour to regret it having my insides kicked to shreds as baby went 'weeeee' even more than our usual bedtime acrobatics. Instead baby seemed to go 'nom nom' and slept for about 45 mins before getting back to our usual wriggles. Well I just had to test that this wasn't a one off right??? Now had four (over a week, not that greedy lol). I can eat cake, have a settled baby and now responds if daddy says 'would you like a cake?' Have to say is win win Mind does respond to my oh more than me. He says bed time to the bump and settles down I say it just get a harder kick in the ribs... wondering if he's taken secret baby whispering classes... x
