The fact is that there are just so many strange food combinations out there that are considered downright weird by many people. Whether you’re pregnant or not, I’m sure a lot of you have heard about these foods and the pregnancy cravings.
Yeah, people have weird food combinations, too – especially those who are pregnant. But even for those who aren’t pregnant, a lot of the strange foods can cause confusion and even disorientation. For example, if you’re pregnant and you eat a sandwich made with a combination of ground chicken, chicken rice noodles, and rice, you run into some weird issues because you have a very different stomach sensation to the typical stomach sensation you get when pregnant. It is difficult to digest all that food.
Some of these foods are not only difficult to digest but can also cause a variety of issues such as nausea, depression, seizures, and other issues. In addition to the obvious foods that are often associated with pregnancy, there are also a lot of other foods that are not considered “normal” for pregnancy.
Some of my favorite foods are the ones that get me hungry but can cause serious problems in pregnancy. For instance, I am able to eat food that is not supposed to be eaten during pregnancy, which usually freaks me out because I’m still eating it.
It’s been said that eating certain foods while pregnant can cause serious health issues. I have a friend named Lizzie who was born in the third trimester and had a normal pregnancy. When Lizzie was two and a half months pregnant her doctor called and said she had an issue with breast milk but she was fine. After she gave birth, her doctor called and said she had a heart issue during her pregnancy and that she had heart problems after she gave birth.
Apparently, if you’re pregnant and eating a specific type of food, it can cause problems during labor and delivery. We know it can cause serious health problems because our own mother was diagnosed with lactose intolerance (the inability to digest milk sugar) at the age of 42.
The thing is, breast milk can also be problematic during pregnancy. In fact, there are several conditions that can result in a woman’s milk being “out of balance.” If you’re one of those, you may want to think twice about what you are eating.
It’s not that milk is bad, it’s just that it can be hard for some women to digest. The National Foundation for Infertility says that 80 percent of women who have been diagnosed are lactose intolerant and that half of these women will not be able to digest milk.
The same is true of people who are trying to conceive. I know a pregnant woman who had to have a Cesarean section because her breasts leaked milk during her pregnancy. She couldn’t digest it and had to have the baby removed.
