So this is already turning out to be a much different pregnancy from my previous 3.
With this pregnancy, it seems that non-food items are what I crave. So far, I have wanted to lick the fresh polish off my step-daughters nails. I have wanted to eat the stack of newspapers I collected for the coupons. I have also wanted to lick the wood from my girls new bunk bed.
I should probably say that I did NOT lick my step-daughters fingers (though I am pretty sure I freaked her out) ....or eat the newspaper. I am ashamed to admit......I gave the wood a little lick.
It's the most bizarre thing, to crave something that your sane self, knows you have no business eating. I just couldn't control it. Especially the wood! Oh my lordy, you should have seen it. I was helping my husband set up the bed and it just smelled SO yummy! The next thing I knew, I had my eyes closed and my tongue had made contact with the bed frame.
I had to get up and leave the room. Otherwise, I just might have started gnawing on the damned thing.
I love being pregnant. It validates crazy!!
