Hi ya'll vegan future mom to be (second child). First pregnancy on vegan diet went well but in my second one in the first trimester i've been craving meat. Like rare steak and tartar. I have managed to keep it just that-cravings but I feel like I should maybe listen to my body and indulge ?? Have any of you experienced this?? Should I cave in?

Vegetarian here. No I never had cravings for meat. You are probably lacking B-12 or other B vitamins that are mainly derived from meat. You might need to listen to your body. Lacking essential vitamins and nutrients can be very problematic if you are not getting them from other sources. I would speak to your OBGYN and a nutritionist to make sure you are having an adequate and balanced diet for your babies health if you are going to continue to be a vegan. It can be extremely difficult to receive proper nutrition on a vegan diet especially if not executed properly.
