My first moment of crazy

Up until this point I have avoided most stereotypical pregnancy behavior. Well, I hate to be cliche, but I finally had my T.V. Pregnancy moment this weekend (you know...the way they represent pregnant women on television shows).


On Monday, I was taking a break from painting when all of a sudden I was starving...not just, "gosh I'm hungry. I really should eat something." Oh no! It was a "If I DO NOT EAT something in the next 25 seconds I think I might die" kind of hunger. So, there I was, standing in front of the refrigerator stuffing pepperoni into my face, while simultaneously looking for ice cream in the freezer. If I had had pickles, I swear to you I would have devoured the pickle jar and then moved straight on to the pint of Cake Batter ice cream I had bought earlier at the store. Never before have I had such a moment. I didn't even really associate it with pregnancy, until I was relaying the message to my friend Diana and she pointed out that I sound like all the other crazy pregnant women wanting pickles and ice cream!

Now the pregnancy book explanation for this kind of behavior is that my body was clearly lacking sodium (hence the pickle craving) and sugar (hence the ice cream craving), but any pregnant woman's husband will tell you that it has nothing to do with that. It's simply that we've lost our minds.
