Saturday we went to a cook out at my husband's boss' house. It was a lot of fun. It was time to eat and I was dressing my hamburger. A woman brought over a jar of pickles and placed a few on my plate.
"Just because I'm pregnant I have to have pickles?" HA! We both laughed. I went over and sat down to visit and eat.
To be polite I went ahead and ate the pickles even though I really wasn't wanting to.
I took one bite and that pickle hit my taste buds like a cold refreshing glass of water on a hot day!
It satisfied every craving and culinary longing I didn't even know I had. I ate three.
When we got home hubby had to get on his computer to work for a little bit and I headed to bed.
I tossed and turned. I couldn't sleep. All I could think about was the pickles.
My mouth was literally watering. Crazy I know!
Hubby was still up so I sheepishly walked into the living room and asked him if he was going to be up a little while longer.
"Yes, I still have a lot to finish."
I swallowed my pride and asked "I know this sounds really crazy but would you mind running to the store and picking up some of those pickles that were at the cook out?"
He obviously didn't understand how serious the situation was.
"Sweetie, I'm serious"
Still laughing he kissed my forehead. "Sure, I'll go get a jar for you"
He walked out the door at 11:30 pm. The store is right down the road from our house.
When he got home I was so excited! Claussen Sandwich Style Kosher Dill pickles..perfect.
Craziest thing ever! I've never had cravings this intense.
I was able to finally sleep with half a jar of pickles in my belly. :)
What did you crave during pregnancy?
