I'm 8w4d. I've had pretty bad morning sickness, but not awful. Most days I don't want to eat anything at all, but I'm not puking all that often. I try to choke down something every day. Then every few days or so I get cravings for really unhealthy food. I'll chow down on Big Macs and McDonalds french fries. Or a whole bag of potato chips and sour cream and onion dip. Or half a carton of ice cream. And my husband doesn't approve. He gets upset and lectures me about how the baby is eating what I'm eating.
Now, I want to caveat all of this by saying he's been super fabulous about everything else. I've been dead tired and suffering from insomnia. He's taken to doing everything around the house. The cooking, the laundry, the dishes. He's sympathetic to my feeling like crap. And he's reading books about pregnancy and taken a real interest in this whole thing. And I think maybe that's where part of the problem is. He knows a little too much.
But, *I* know that potato chips are not a good source of nutrition for me or my growing baby. And I know that Big Macs are even worse. But 98% of the time the thought of any kind of food kicks my gag reflex in. And I'm so tired already that not eating just makes me want to sleep all day. So when my stomach says: "that! I want that!" I eat it. And I've tried to explain all this to him. But I still get the lectures and disapproving looks. Anything I can do? I guess I'm mostly just looking to vent to some sympathetic ladies.
