If you’re experiencing crazy cravings during pregnancy, you’re definitely not alone. From pickle juice to brownies with mustard, moms-to-be have been known to crave some pretty out-of-the-box foods. Just take it from Joanna Gaines, star of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, who shared exactly what she was craving on her recent Instagram post—at 2:30 a.m.

“Woke up this morning at 2:30 a.m. and was craving Fruity Pebbles, a pimento cheese sandwich, chicken spaghetti, deviled eggs, and ranch dressing,” she says.

Gaines is pregnant with her fifth child with husband, Chip Gaines. Their adorable kids, ages 12, 11, 9 and 7, constantly steal the spotlight on Fixer Upper, a widely popular HGTV show currently airing its final season.

Much to Gaines’ dismay, her house wasn’t stocked with any of the (slightly bizarre) items she was craving.

“Didn’t have any of that so I made myself some cookies,” she continues. “I’m definitely growing at a record rate.”

Wondering if your cravings actually mean anything? It turns out your overwhelming urge for dairy or sweets might actually be your body sending you signals of what it needs. So don’t be afraid to succumb to your next craving for sauerkraut. After all, it might be just what baby ordered.
