I want it and I want it NOW

by statia on September 13, 2006

One of ther perks of being pregnant is that if there’s something you want right this very second and you must have it, the chances of you getting it are almost 100%. You definitely need to milk this perk for all it’s worth. Especially if this is your first because after the first, people start getting tired of your demands and you’re old hat at this now woman, go and get your own damn blueberry pancakes. Although, if a husband knows what’s good for him, he’ll do this even if it’s your fifth kid. Afterall, you can’t drag him into the “Big Baby Superstore.”

The worst possible thing that could happen is that you see your next craving on TV and you can’t find it anywhere.

Say that hypothetically you were watching Scrubs and someone on Scrubs bought a Yoohoo and all of a sudden Fetus was like, “BITCH, GET ME A YOOHOO NOW!!” And you think to yourself, “self, you know, come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen Yoohoo anywhere in the entire time I’ve lived here. This is bad self, this is really really bad.”

What’s a girl gotta do to get a hoo all up in here?

When I was pregnant with my first I got a craving for a Payday candy bar. My husband drove me around to 6 different stores.We lived in Hawaii and he went from one side of the island to the other only for it to dawn on me hours into the search that all I was really craving were peanuts.

I’m new to your blog, but I had to say your “bitch get me a hoo” post made me laugh outloud. Your hubby needs to put an APB out there for the hoo.

And there is no reasoning with a fetus. Nope. Can’t explain to it that a Quik is close to a Yoohoo. I hope you don’t have to drive to another state for your ‘hoo. Or should I say that the Meester doesn’t have to drive to another state for the ‘hoo.

G’day you two – greetings (again) from Downunder…

I’m just back from a (longer than intended) visit to Europe – and I’m late in catching up with who’s blogging what…

And who’s in the CLUB!

Congratulations you two – we’re all (yes all!) delighted for you.

I managed (while away) to put a little more history on my site… If you are interested in a little IVF history go here – and start reading at 1975…


And then get back to makin your own history…

Great news and hang on in there! And keep off that chocolate stuff – it’ll only make you fat…

Best wishes

Their website says that it’s bottled and distributed by 7-Up in the San Fran area, so maybe they’d have it in a convenience store where 7-Up is sold. That would be my best guess. In the meantime, drink a chocolate milk and tell the fetus to put a freakin’ lid on it! ;-)

Oh this is the *BEST* perk of pregnancy, I am finding as well. After all, you spend lotsa time feeling crappy … so you should get to make unreasonable, weird, calorically irresponsible demands of your spouse. It’s marvelous.

Try having a craving for a Starbucks pumpkin muffin with cream cheese frosting in Feb. You just can’t get one and the pumpkin loaf just isn’t the same. Everyone was sooo tired of me whining about wanting a pumpkin muffin.

Urban legend time! A friend of a friend used to work at the Yoohoo factory, he said if you leave it out for too long, unrefrigerated, maggots’ll grow in it.

Betcha don’t want one now. I can’t drink them anymore because of that.

SarahD September 14, 2006 at 11:11 am

Kate, I’m pretty sure if you leave any food out too long unrefrigerated, maggots will grow in it. It’s their job, and they’re really good at it ;)

Statia, I so loved the “BITCH, GET ME A YOOHOO NOW!!” lol!

Kathy September 14, 2006 at 11:35 am

Now everyone you know is going to send you Yoohoo and when you get it, you’ll have changed your mind and Yoohoo will make you want to hurl.

linda September 14, 2006 at 1:52 pm

Yoohoo this week and don’t you just know that next week it’ll be some Little Debbie dessert in a box that you can only get in Arizona.

Thank god for the internet.

Yahoo for Yoohoo. Here’s to hoping the fetus starts demanding chocolate, because the more chocolate you eat the happier the fetus will be. Studies show that, y’know?

Keep on milking it.

Your fetus and mine are twins without a doubt.
