Default Nullable Type Question

I have a variable defined as Nullable (Of Int32). But I can't seem to assign it a value of DBNull. Seems it can only take VBNull. How the heck am I supposed to use it with a database then? The following code breaks every time a null value comes out of the database:

dim myNullableInt as Nullable (of Int32)
myNullableInt = myDataReader("myPossiblyNullField")
