I like a good beer buzz, early in the mornin'

So I was driving to work, listening to "All I wanna do is have some fun" by Sheryl Crow and as usual I smiled when she said "I like a good beer buzz, early in the mornin'". Isn't that a great lyric?

It made me think about the fact that I won't be drinking beer for a long long time. Before pregnancy, I was a beer drinker. You would never find me drinking an alcoholic drink that wasn't beer. In fact, 99% of the time that beer would be Amstel Lite. It was/is my fav. Now I'm looking at a minimum of 6 months without beer and a maximum of 1.5 years (depending on nursing). Well, I guess it will be ok for me to drink a little during those nursing months, but we'll see.

I've done a pretty good job lately of not craving beer. Every once in awhile, like during that song, I remember the crisp taste that I use to love. But then on the other hand, I remember the hung over feeling that I hated so much (which usually followed the next morning). Oddly, being hung over feels almost exactly like morning sickness.

In fact, one day last week, I was definitely either hung over and no one told me they spiked my ice tea, or my morning sickness decided to come back for a short visit.

But oh yes, I do like a good beer buzz early in the mornin' :-)


  1. im not sure you'll have the time to drink while nursing! heh you'll probably just want to sleep :)

  2. Oh God did I miss beer while pregnant. I went with the LLL recommendation regarding liquor while nursing!
