crazy crave

As if the ever-growing expanse of my belly, actual ultrasound pictures, listening to the baby's heartbeat, surviving morning sickness, and experiencing here-to-fore unknown levels of exhaustion in the past 2 and a half months weren't enough... I have more proof that I am, in fact, pregnant.
In the past 3 days, I believe I have consumed over a gallon of skim milk. On my own. In cereal (Cinnamon Toast Crunch, thanks very much) or in a tall glass - always very cold (because even minorly lukewarm milk makes my stomach turn).
I know - most women crave normal things like pickles or Chinese food, or delicious things like chocolate malts and peanut butter cookies. And while I enjoy eating all of those items- it is the bountiful wonder of skim milk that I cannot stay away from.
(On an aside - I'm a little perturbed that the picture of skim milk is from Kroger - because our milk either comes from Meijer or Quality Dairy. Always. But the only other milk pictures I could find weren't clearly labeled "skim." And heaven forbid anyone click on that picture and think I've been enjoying Vitamin D Milk all weekend long. Ick. Welcome to my world of Things I Care Too Much About That NO ONE Else Would Ever Notice.)

Honestly, the thought of you drinking that much milk is making me sick. Blah...

I know, it's almost creepy.
But I'll only drink skim, and only if it's really cold.
If that helps.

I think it still makes me crazy. :)

I've really enjoyed large glasses of ice cold milk myself throughout my pregnancy. --- skim milk of course!

But slushies are still my favorite pregnancy "craving".

Should I gross you out with the information that Mark and I are now drinking raw milk? Whole, unpasteurized, and unhomogenized from a local dairy farmer. :)
