Pregnant Food Cravings - Taco Bell?!

Pregnant Mamas: I'm 8 weeks along, and nothing has really tasted truly delicious the last few weeks. I'm not one for fast food, but I just went and got a "mexican pizza" at Taco Bell. And I am in HEAVEN. I never knew Taco Bell could taste so freaking amazing! It was like angels were singing while I was eating it! (I don't think it would ever taste this good if I wasn't pregnant.) So just wanted to pass on the tip - go there and get a "mexican pizza" and see if it does the trick!
(and yes, I'm well aware that this isn't the most healthy option.)

I'm curious what other pregnant moms are craving?

What can I do next?

When I was pregnant with my first I totally craved Taco Bell taco's.... I only ate them twice but it was like you described. A little bit of heaven.

I have NEVER liked Taco Bell before... and am still not a big fan... but it was something about the crunchy taco that was so yummy.

I had hyper-emesis when finally preg with dd (after 3 losses in the year before). Hyper emesis is basically morning sickness gone totally wacko! At one initial point I lost 11 pounds in 10 days and ended up on IV's until I was about 6 mos along (adding vitamins to the nightly bag of fluids at home and getting the site changed every few days).

Once I could eat real food again ALL I wanted was Tostados at Taco bell. Just the flat shell, refried beans, sause, lettuce and cheese. I ate them all the time. Doc said it was fine..I was actually EATING real food, beans had protein...all was fine for me!

Good luck!

Hormones are funny! I couldn't stand Taco Bell when I was pregnant, but I did crave the tacos and hot sauce from Del Taco when i was expecting my oldest. December found me putting a toddler (whom I was babysitting) in his stroller (the car was being used evenings,) bundling us up from the cold and walking a block and a half to get some tacos with tons of hot sauce and pineapple sundaes, sometimes twice a night, lol!
Enjoy your Mexican pizzas : )

HAHA!! My joke through my pregnancy was that my childs first words would be...."Yo Quiero Taco Bell".....LOL!!

I'm not generally a TB fan, but I constantly craved Bean Burritos there. Even when no other food would sit well with me....I could always eat a bean burrito!!
