Shopping

Cave in to cravings

A common symptom widely associated with pregnancy is cravings. With some women succumbing to rather specific cravings such as honey and mustard dressing, toothpaste and even coal! Whatever you are craving, give in every so often and spoil yourself. As long as your craving doesn’t harm you or your baby, then enjoying what you desire will give you a little boost. How about chocolate and strawberries? As both these foods can help your brain to release endorphins which make you happy!
