Cravings happen to the best of us, whether we've got a baby on board or not. (We can recall many a college night of needing a soft taco or a Dairy Queen Blizzard like NOW, for example.) But for some reason, pregnant women are thought to crave certain foods more strongly than most.
Doctors still don't know exactly why women have these cravings. The root of that strong urge for yogurt parfait could be anything from hormones to a desire to cancel out certain aversions to a decreased salt sensitivity.
But, the inclinations at least make for entertaining while-I-was-pregnant stories. And those tales are especially juicy — or salty, sweet, or cheesy — when they're coming from our favorite celebs.

That’s like my thing."
