Weird Pregnancy Craving, How Is It Possible To Crave GRASS!

But why grass?
Along with the terrible symptoms pregnancy brings, like the never ending heartburn and the sleepless nights, you get the joy of having the 'craving' excuse to pretty much eat whatever you want. Well thats all said and good.... but why am i craving grass? It all started one day when we were lying in bed, and some nearby grass was being cut... i turned to nathan and said 'go get me some grass.... i really fancy some' whilst licking my lips, he told me straight up no. I was welling up to the fact i couldn't have what i wanted! Now ever since, we have to be really careful where we go out, because as many pregnant people know, its upsetting when you just cant have what you truly desire! 
So what causes these weird and unusual cravings? 

Pregnancy cravings are basically evolutionary,” suggests Dr. Brian Wansink, author of Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think. In a news article i read online, he had also gone on to say “The reason for a bizarre craving for anchovies or charcoal is because there's something deficient in a woman's system that she needs.” But i'm still in the situation where i NEED some grass! 

I've found it so hard to restrain myself, because i can only imagine what sorts of germs and animals urine are on the grass, so ive chosen to snack on cress a lot, although the texture is completely different and the taste a little more peppery, i've got to logically think about what sorts of things i'm putting into my body. I thought cravings would be an amazing excuse to pig out and eat everything under the sun, but apart from the grass, i've craved pretty normal things such as ice lollies and slush puppies, potato waffles, and black olives.

 It takes a lot of self control not to just bend down to pick some fresh
grass when nathan isn't looking...
