The weird pregnancy craving thing has never affected me. You know, the whole “pickles and ice cream” thing?

But I do get on certain kicks.

Sometimes they are healthy and good. One pregnancy had me eating pounds and pounds of blueberries. One pregnancy found me constantly peeling and eating oranges.

Sometimes they are bad. Bad, bad, bad. One pregnancy was long enough to consume far too many boxes of Cocoa Puffs than is good for anyone.

And this pregnancy? This one finds me here:

And while I justify it by pointing out that I am drinking milk (gallons and gallons of milk)… which is good, I am no dummy. There is a lot of chocolate in that milk. Sometimes, I even dump in the leftover coffee from breakfast.

I like to think that I need it, and that is why I crave it.

I still can’t figure out the Cocoa Puffs thing, though…

  1. One of my pregnancies was all about fresh pineapple.

    Maybe you could substitute Ovaltine for the Hershey’s syrup. Isn’t that supposed to be all about vitamins? But what a great craving to get–malted milkshakes!

  2. So did your cravings have any affect on the child you were carrying at the time? I craved tomatoes and green olives with my daughter. And she loved eating those as a child as well as an adult. With my son I craved apples with peanut butter. For many years the only way he’d eat an apple was with peanut butter slathered on it.

  3. One was Special K cereal with strawberries and bananas in it. Another was Frankenberry Cereal!! I ate boxes and boxes of it.

    The worst was with Lovey. I ate cake. Tons Ans tons of Dunken Hines Vanilla Cake with Vanilla frosting. I would make a 9×13 almost everyday and eat at least 1/2 to 2/3 myself. I would get mad if anyone else ate it. πŸ˜›
