when i got pg with ds my mw suggested i give up nitrate and msg foods, after ds was born i tried to eat food with msg and learned quickly i just can no longer tolerate msg or nitrates...i get migranes from them
i gave up caffiene with my other pregnancies and was going to occassionaly drink soda this pregnancy, but soon realized it gives me heart palps
i can't eat right before bed, and cant have anything sugary 2 hrs before bed, my body doesn't like it. if i could have anything right now i would have some doritos and a coke
but i will never be able to have doritos ever again (msg) and i don't plan to start drinking caffiene again after baby is born, that will be a big lifestyle change for me as i've ALWAYS drank soda. i know i'll be healthier for it though
i do eat the natural hormel/oscar mayer deli turkey, it's the only deli meat i can tolerate.
