OMG! I could drink gallons of water! We have a 4L (1 gallon) jug in the fridge that I have to refill at least 1x a day! That's between me AND the kiddos though.

My latest was turkey slices wrapped around cheese strings! -- It fits with Atkins though! lol

Re: cravings while nursing? or am i just crazy?

Yes! I didn't really so much with my first, but with the twins I have almost identical cravings to yours, except with veggies instead of fruit. Fountain soda - oh my. It's wonderful, isn't it? I was almost vegetarian before and while pregnant. Not on purpose, I just didn't like meat all that much and certainly not red meat. Well, I forced it down since I was supposed to eat loads of protein with a twin pregnancy, but...ew. Now I'm like a carnivore practically. I crave steak, hamburgers, anything. I eat almost an entire bag of frozen veggies at dinner. So, yeah, I'm right there with you. I don't know why, but I always tend to think that cravings are your body trying to tell you something.

Nope, you're not crazy. I have major cravings for sweets (cookies, cake, donuts...yumm) since I've been nursing. I never really had any cravings during pregnancy and was a bit surprised by nursing cravings. We're at the 1yr mark for nursing and I'm still enjoying all the sweets

LOL wow it sounds like nursing mama's are worse than preggo mamas!!!! who da thunk it huh???
and i know how you feel...i really have never cared for red meat (thus the knowing i get sick w/o it LOL) only ever like chicken and/or turkey BREAST and fish and during this pg the poultry and fish both really turned me off...and apparently they do while nursing too!!!

crazy huh? i've often wondered if it's your body telling you something as well....
oh along with the pickles thing, i ate pickles and miracle whip sandwhiches during this pg lol.

I crave meat, all the time. I was practically a vegetarian prebaby so this carnivore business is out of nowhere!

I don't know if I've had specific cravings. I'm just hungry all the time. Really hungry!
