Me too! CRAZY! I am not much of a meat-eater, but I can not shake the thought of cheeseburgers 24 hours a day.

I'm the opposite. I'm usually a meat lover and so far I have been practically vegetarian! At least I'm still eating a bunch of cheese I guess.

. . . .you really REALLY need to poop, it hasn't happened in 4 days. . . .and when you get all excited to go, it's rabbit turds and a total let down. . . .

and, yes, I've been eating my veggies and fiber.

Here here! And I just called Dh and told him to stop and get me McNuggetts on the way home. You have no idea how much I normally DESPISE McD's. This is so sad. And I had a pizza for lunch.

Yep. We have been watching A LOT of PBS in the morning. To the makers of Sesame Street - enough with the blue screen and computer effects. I grew up watching the wires on all the muppets hands and it didn't make me stupid or any less entertained. Jim Henson is rolling in his grave.

Ok...you know you're pregnant when...

You're husband is the most angelic creature in the world for doing the dishes before he left for work that morning. But, you call him a few hours later and rip him a new one for daring to eat one of your granola bars when he knows you are trying to grow and extra human being and he shouldn't be eating your food and then you break into sobs because you can't find anything good to eat and you think he needs to come home and cook for you.

You cry because you just wrote a horribly long run-on sentence.

No, no - THIS video makes you cry for a few hours.

You yell at 3yo Ds for having trouble riding his bike. I am so scarred from that moment this morning.

You are at the point of starving to death and almost passing out from plunging blood sugar, yet you cannot lift your body off the couch. So, you send your 3yo to get you an ice pop, even though you normally yell at him for dragging the chair to the freezer to get said ice pops.

You know you're pregnant when half a jar of pickles and 2 bags of popcorn sounds like a perfectly fine dinner.
post #46 of 60
mmm... pickles. and french fries. can i have relish on my fries?
post #47 of 60
Uggh! I had burger king for lunch and pizza for dinner! I was planning on lamb shanks and goat cheese polenta for dinner, but I was way too exhausted once it was time to cook. I feel icky! Thankfully my nausea is easing up and the fatigue is some, so hopefully I'll be back to my normal eating habits soon. My stomach is not very happy.

Little Debbie Swiss Rolls and oranges. Two of each!

Ykypw......

you FREAK out that DH ate half the chocolates you bought specially at Trader Joes (which is an hour and a half away) that don't have any "crap" in them...and stomp out of the room in a rage and thought very very mean thoughts while you were fuming in the other room.

Hmph.

I also just hid the chocolates so he can't find them ever again.

i haven't ever considered the fast food thing (never been a ff eater) but last night while i writhed in agonizing hunger induced nausea w/o any clue what sounded good, a mcd's cheeseburger w/ ketchup and pickle suddenly entered my mind, out of nowhere. it sounded so good! wth?! i don't even think i know what they taste like!

i'm typically a salad whore, and while i haven't been able to stomache even the thought of them, i finally forced myself to attempt one yesterday at lunch--and it so grossed me out. (and for the whole rest of the day!) who have i become?

Me, too! Normally I can't get enough salad and eat at least one a day (more like 2 or 3 when I'm pregnant) but I can't stomach it right now

I did manage to make a real meal the other night (meatloaf, fried potatoes and onions, and green beans )

You know you're pregnant when you think you might explode at work from gas, and when you finally get some relief, hubby looks at you as though he's wondering where his wife went and who this super gas monster is.

well, i've been extremely suggestable latey and saw a commercial for Red Robin's grilled mexican salad (or whatever it's called)--the luscious-looking avacado is what finally persuaded me and, it was so. gross. definitely a traumatizing experience, lol. i had to leave the table early and go and nurse the babe in the car instead!

OMG this sounds amazing. Too bad all the oranges I've eaten recently have been less-than-yummy.

I'm off to eat some more chocolate fudge (flavored...) icing...

You are experiencing a major case of felifinity.

This is my favourite pregnancy symptom so far.

Felifinity is a pregnancy-related medical condition. The condition is only found among humans owned by cats. The key symptom is the cat's complete attachment to their human, often manifesting in extremely close physical contact such as cleaning behind the human's ears, grooming the human's head, or the desire for such contact, which may manifest in a cat crying pitifully in the bathroom because the pregnant human has isolated hirself behind the shower curtain where the cat is afraid to go, because of the potential for water-induce trauma. There is no cure.

You know you are pregnant when:

-Your mind goes blank all the time when trying to think about anything serious.
-You find yourself thinking about meat even though you are a vegetarian

+1! My little black kitty is suddenly a luvamuffin, instead of the demon he used to be. Such a nice change! Except when I'm trying to do laundry, fix food, feed the dog, and kitty is trying to wend between my ankles.

YKYPW the only thing you want for dinner is potato skins and potstickers
post #59 of 60
YKYPW the smell of your husband returning from cooking maple sap after work makes you want to get out of your sick bed and go make pancakes and bacon to put that syrup on.

And you want to cry that he didn't just offer to make you some pancakes and bacon.. at 10:30 p.m. As he was going to bed to get up for his factory job that starts at 6a.m.
Yeah, I'm unreasonable. But at least I was silent.

And I just made bacon and pancakes for the family, the next morning. Seriously good - that boiled from your own trees maple syrup. Makes bisquick and store bought bacon taste phenomenal.

Wow! Maple syrup from your own trees! Impressive. I hope DH will come through with some waffles for me this weekend! I haven't been able to stop thinking about them all week.
