When I was pregnant with MH, I had two pregnancy cravings: booze and cigarettes. I think it's knowing that you can't have something that makes you want it even more. But I'll tell ya, I had crazy dreams where I'd smoke and then realize I was pregnant and feel super guilty about it. So the mother guilt was already going strong.
This time around, I haven't craved anything nearly as destructive. Actually, this whole pregnancy has been a bit better. I think I've only lost my shit once or twice, but mostly I've been pretty resigned. I think it's because the last time I was pregnant, I wasn't used to having to think about somebody else before I thought about myself so it was a real shock. But that's just a way of life for me now.
Okay, pregnancy cravings. This time around, it's all about cereal.
No, this isn't a badly lit picture from the grocery store. This is my cereal stash. I expect this to last for ONE WEEK. Last time Jonathan went grocery shopping, I told him to get a ridiculous amount of cereal. I said, "If you think you are getting too much, get one more box." So he came home with like four boxes. FOOL. I went through that shit in a few days.
MH is also doing a fair bit of cereal these days, but really she's just the Kramer to my Seinfeld. I'm eating this stuff like 2-3 bowls at a time.
Could be worse. I could be dream smoking and feeling super bad about it.
