Baby No. 2 Has Peculiar Taste Buds!

Adriana Lima has encountered all kinds of odd cravings while carrying her second child -- one of which is particularly dangerous for any pregnancy.

Adriana Lima is pregnant and craving alcoholSome expectant mothers stay away from sugary sweets, while others lay off the red meat for a while. Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima oddly finds herself overcome with an insatiable craving for alcohol -- eek!

"I've been craving beer," said Lima to People on Wednesday at the IWC Schaffhausen watch boutique opening in New York.

The gorgeous mom explained that it's a request that's out of the ordinary for her not only because she's pregnant, but because she's not a fan of the beverage altogether.

"It's very strange because I normally don't like beer. Now I want some but I cannot drink it. It's been very hard!"

However, she is happily appeasing other requests from her taste buds.

"I've been craving crispy duck," she said. "All of a sudden, I cannot get enough of it. It’s amazing."

How is Lima doing since this is her second time being pregnant? "I'm feeling wonderful. It's definitely easier than the first time, maybe because I know exactly what I'm going to go through. I'm very relaxed and have a lot of energy."

Adriana Lima: My diet isn't crazy! >>

She shared her workout secret -- a regimen she didn't keep up while pregnant with her daughter Valentina, now two years old.

"For the first three months I exercised with light weights and did workouts that were inspired by animal movements, like crab-walking on the floor. It really helped me tone my muscles."

Lima is sticking to her workout schedule this time around with the help of her husband, former basketball player Marko Jaric.

"I've gained a few pounds, but not as much as the first pregnancy -- thanks to my husband," Lima added.

I think it depends with how far along in the pregnancy you are and what is specifically developing at that time. Clearly when the most crucial development is happening a mommy shouldn't risk it. But I have heard that the later in duration the pregnancy is an occasional glass is ok. And with each pregnancy you relax a bit too! I'm sure once I am carrying I'll form my own solid opinions.

How many varying opinions on motherhood, pregnancy, and dietary health are there? It's enough to make us crazy with all the contradictory advice out there. And something I've learned from all my pregnant friends or those deep into motherhood is that mommies love to broadcast their opinion. At a recent shower for a girlfriend there was such a debate going between if the occasional glass of wine or beer is allowed or if it is an unnecessary risk. Just like coffee allowance. While yes there is plenty of scientific medical literature on the fact that high levels of drinking while pregnant can have significant health risks on the baby there doean't seem to be much evidence that an occasional ( a vague term which should definitely be quantified in a case like this) has any effect of the health of the baby. Would I personally take the risk for a glass of champagne at a party? Most likely not. But is this because wide accepted fact or mere over action?
