Cravings...

I continue to be cautiously optimistic with the morning sickness. I can now go for about 2 days at a stretch without puking. I do seem to be a little odd in the morning sickness world however as, I have either been waking up to puke at 4am or puking after breakfast even when I was assured that if I just ate, I would feel better. As a tip, firmly telling your stomach that you aren't puking results in a guffaw, using the phrase "I refuse to puke anymore" results in hysterical laughter by your entire digestive track. The plus side of all of this being that I can drink a milkshake whenever the opportunity presents itself with a feeling of near-virtuousness as I still haven't actually gained much weight to speak of and may have actually lost a little.

In the midst of all this fun, I have been having some rather odd cravings. Specifically latkes and jello shooters. I have been wanting a grape flavored jello shooter since at least Thursday. No, grape jello isn't adequate, there must be the bite and sting of the everclear or vodka in it. I have found that rinsing with mouthwash with a high alcohol content seems to abate the craving for "the sting" somewhat but really, nothing can replace the jello shooter. Might I also note that I last had a jello shot at least 3 years ago and perhaps even longer ago than that. I'm really not sure where the craving could possibly come from. And, after examining the "plush plagues bag" at judasim.com, I'm totally consumed by a craving for latkes...with sour cream and applesauce. So, to sum up, I apparently only crave items which are completely forbidden to me or which are a massive pain to prepare. I love me.

All those old wives tales about morning sickness are exactly that. I was sick all day no matter what I did and fine at night! The good news is that it will pass and it generally means a good strong pregnancy. Gahd, don' you just want to slap people when they say that stuff?

Actually, the group that is making most violent at the moment are people who never had morning sickness, just heartburn. They can really bring out the rage...
