The Ramblings of a Crazy Pregnant Person

I thought that maybe I wasn't having ridiculous cravings. Sure, I've been eating a TON of Taco Bueno and fruit (not together usually), but it's never urgent. And mainly it's been the food aversions controlling things. I still can't get near meat or the smell of meat without wanting to heave. But today, something changed.

I needed pizza rolls. No, I didn't mean to say I wanted pizza rolls. Needed is the only word that fits here. It felt like I would cease to exist if I didn't get some delicious, lard-filled, golden squares that ooze with deliciousness and "mystery" meat.

So, we headed to Wal-Mart. First, I reload on fresh fruit and Plum-Smart juice (the bowels have been on strike). Then, we head to the freezer section where I will find my pizza rolls. Except, the shelf is EMPTY!!!

What? Where are the pizza rolls??? Now, I found cheese and supreme types, but I didn't come here for cheese or supreme. I wanted pepperoni. But there were NOOOOOO pepperoni on the shelf. And to make it worse, the little price tag was there saying where they should be so I just continued to stand there and stare at the very empty space expecting a bag to miraculously appear and save the day. I was contemplating tearing the whole store apart to find that one precious little bag of pepperoni pizza rolls that I knew was hiding out somewhere.

I'm pregnant for goodness sake. Isn't there something to protect things like this from happening? Doesn't anybody in this store understand how much I need these rolls? CAN ANYBODY HELP ME???

And just as the breakdown is nearing the point of me being escorted out of the store, I pace to the end of the aisle and see a section of pizza rolls at the endcap. And guess what? They had PEPPERONI!!!

Crisis diverted.


  1. LOL! Love it!!! So glad you found them!

  2. Hahaha...that is so funny. Glad you found your pizza rolls! I bet those helped with the on strike bowels!!!!

  3. I know a good way to avoid this in the future!!! DON'T GO TO WALMART.

  4. Plum-smart rocks!!! (I just discoved it recently.)

    YAY for pizza rolls!!! LOL

  5. HAHA, oh how I remember the must have cravings. Like you said in the beginning. I didn't have specific cravings often but when I did it was that and only that.
    So funny. Get used to it. And get used to eating more.
    I love hearing all your pregnancy stories. I'm itching to have another baby so bad. But we can't afford another IVF right now. I want to try SOOOOO BAD though! I'll live my memories of those great prego days through you for now =)

  6. What a suspenseful story - glad it had a happy ending!

  7. I haven't had a real craving like that yet in my pregnancy! Even though it sucks I'm sure running around trying to locate the thing you're craving, once you get it it must feel SO good to eat it. I am a little jealous hehe.

    Glad you got those pizza rolls! =)

  8. hey there! i just found your blog. i love it! dh and i are almost 12 wks pregnant after ttc for 3.5 years. it's great to connect with people who can understand what we've been through to get to this point!
