Confessions of a Pregger

I'm almost at 30 weeks pregnant. Besides all the other crazy things that are going on in our lives, this one is probably the biggest. (Duh!)
Sterotypical things that go on during pregnancy have shown up in mine, I'm not any different from any other pregnant lady.
This week my new thing has been waking up at 4 in the morning STARVING. Feeling like I haven't eaten in weeks and that if I don't eat something -right now- I will implode. When in reality we eat dinner late (usually around 8 or so at night by the time I get home from work and have dinner ready).
Two nights ago this happened and I was totally joshin for a turkey and cheese sandwich. I've known all along you aren't supposed to eat deli meat while you are pregnant and I've been pretty fine with that, but man! I wanted a turkey sandwich so badly. I had an apple instead, even though the bread and cheese and turkey were calling to me from the pantry and the fridge.
Talking with Adam about this, he claimed that if I woke up last night he would make me a grilled turkey and cheese sandwich (I'm allowed to have the deli meat if it's been heated to kill bacteria), but only if I woke up at like 4:30 or so because he would need to get up to go to the gym anyway.
This morning- sure enough at 3:58 I awoke with that gnawing feeling in my stomach. I woke Adam up and told him I was hungry and as we were having a (brief) conversation about how hungry I was, I fell back asleep. I must not have been that hungry. But before 6 I was up and was really hungry by then. I laid on the couch until Adam got home from swimming and he made me the turkey and cheese sandwich I had been promised for breakfast.
It was better than I had imagined it would be.
