You're not crazy. You're hormonal. Or at least it's a possibility. Doctors believe that food cravings may be the result of hormonal changes that can heighten your pregnancy smell sensitivity and alter your perception of taste, for better or worse.
Q: Does every woman have weird food cravings during pregnancy including enchiladas and gooseberries?
A: Not exactly. But most pregnant women report craving unusual combinations. Generally things like sweets, fruits, fruit juices, sour fruits, salty or spicy foods, bland foods, and crunchy or chewy foods.
Q: Why do my food preferences completely change during pregnancy?
A: Your hormonal changes during pregnancy can also change your perception of smell and taste, which can bring on food aversions. If you have an aversion to a healthy food, try substituting another one that has the same nutrients.
Q: Why do I suddenly have a bionic sense of smell during pregnancy?
A: Hormones can do that during pregnancy. Strong smells, like brewing coffee or perfumes, can bother you more now, or even make you feel queasy.
