Re: Pregnant wife needs watermelon now

I wonder what the new craving will be tomorrow?

[hope it won't be brown sugar sprinkled on Graham crackers]

Re: Pregnant wife needs watermelon now

Now I remember an old story that went something like...

a woman had a craving for rapunzel plant, the husband got it for her.. but she ended up having to give her beautiful daughter to a wicked witch, who locked her in a tower and made her hair grow very long..

So be careful where you get that watermellon...

Re: Pregnant wife needs watermelon now

I just saw them at an ethnic grocery store here (sorry I'm in Zurich, so not much help!), but I would hope you could also find them. I am feeling for her (31 weeks along myself), and have been feeling the same way about strawberries and was SO thankful when they showed up, as strawberry jam and sorbet just wasn't cutting it...I needed the real thing. Good luck to you (and your wife)!

My hubby is lucky.... I am not having much craving. At least nothing we can't have trouble to find...

No cravings so far but I am being a real Biartch thought....

Re: Pregnant wife needs watermelon now

Oh how I feel for her.. nothing, absolutely nothing can change that specific craving. If it's a watermelon, then it's got to be a watermelon.
There's something in the watermelon her body needs, I kid you not, the body knows instinctively.

My craving was Jello, orange and lime. Now try finding Jello in Zurich in the nineties.... I cried in the supermarket it was so overwhelming. Finally my husband made Jello out of gelatine and orange Gatorade. I lasted with that mix until my Grandma sent me boxes of the stuff. I ate that and oranges by the kilo.

Good Luck
I'll keep my eyes open for any more watermelons as I'm also in Romandie

Pocketreef, I have Graham Crackers! Glad to donate if that should become her next desire. Given to me by a Canadian friend and I am really not sure what to do with them (she mentioned me being good at making puddings when she handed them over ...??)

I hope she enjoys her watermelon. In my experience, off-season fruit were always slightly disappointing.

But at least she's not craving dirt, or worms or something equally inappropriate.

Good luck with future requests!

Re: Pregnant wife needs watermelon now

She spoke about watermelon for 3 days, It was driving me crazy. Now there are 4/5 and yes she says it is perfectly sweet, best thing she has ever eaten.

It was just an hour away, I'd drive much much more but I won't tell her

Oh what a wonderful husband you are! I tried three of them ..... none measured up to your standards! I hope she treasures you as much as you treasure her .... and live a long and happy life ... together.

Now go pour yourself a nice whisky and relax .. you truly are a Good Man!

Re: Pregnant wife needs watermelon now

oh that is the sweetest! watermelon was my craving food too, but we were in costa rica so it was much easier to get! but i now have a ten year old who still lists his favorite food as watermelon- amazing but it makes sense!

i am heading to the market here in lausanne tomorrow if you need any other strange and hard to find foods, just let me know!

I for one would like to find out what the next craving is Pocketreef, and how far up the mountain you have to climb to get it, so please don`t let this thread end just yet

Re: Pregnant wife needs watermelon now

Yes indeed - and what you are going to do with the extra 4 when she's craving for marmite or pineapple and tuna sandwiches. LOL. Hope you really enjoy this pregnancy together. Sad I think that being pregnant is so often seen as a 'pain and nuisance' nowadays - I (we) just loved being pregnant.

Re: Pregnant wife needs watermelon now

My ex wouldn't even get me a glass of water when I was pregnant.

*sigh*

I hope your lucky lady realises how lucky she is and good on you for being such a decent hubby
