Creepiest Preggo Craving Ever

Ok, I gotta confess this because *wow* is it ever weird. I'm 11 weeks pregnant, and just so you all know, this isn't something I'm actually thinking of participating in! On and off, over the last couple of weeks I've had vivid thoughts and fantasies of blood drinking. Full on True Blood-style. I'd be disturbed by it, if I didn't already know that I have a very active imagination and I've learned to accept my more eccentric thoughts as another facet of who I am. I'm not low on iron, so this craving is a mystery!

Huh...interesting.

When I was pregnant all I wanted was iced water, and pickles covered in Tapatio sauce.

There is a name for that. It's not uncommon during pregnancy, but it means you ate lacking some nutrient. I would definitely tell your OB.

When I was pregnant with my daughter I craved rare steaks. I'd never eaten them that way before, and now it's the only way I'll eat steak. I just wanted the juicy deliciousness.

Have your iron levels checked.
