Nothing sounds good now. :( boo! I am dying to find some food that I can stomach. The only thing I can think of that I might be able to eat is spaghettios, which is horrible. It is the only thing I could stomach when I had HG and I'm afraid it is going to be my go-to food this time too.
What are you craving/what can you stomach? - Page 3
I cannot stop eating carbs. I forced myself to eat a salad for lunch today with some quorn and all I can think about is making a box of pasta with just butter and salt and pepper. I made some angel hair this weekend with olive oil and parm and broccoli and eat the entire thing in 2 sittings. Yum yum yum.
me too! I made Pizza the other day, because it is something I always love to eat. hmm, homemade pizza. but: nothing! I had some, but it by far didn't taste as delicious to me as it usually does!
Mine was takeout cause it had been a beyond rough day yesterday! Once we got it home, I took one look and couldn't even pick it up.
I'm craving potatoes and beef..... think I'm going to make spaghetti w/ meatballs and curly fries for dinner. I know it's wierd but it's a meal combination I grew up with as a kid. Hope I can stomach it. The pizza sounded good yesterday, then I saw it. Hope it's not the same thing again tonight.
nothing seems tasty :(
i was craving chicken yest and DH decided to cook some just the way i like it...
by the time the meal was ready, i lost all appetite for chicken!
i feel nauseous even looking at food ads on TV. I hate even looking at food...the only thing i "like" and can eat is fruits....lots of strawberries, oranges anything sour-sweet.
All I crave are sweet, cold, wet things, like ice cream and cold juicy fruits. I eat cereal, chocolate milk, yogurt, fruits, things like that. Anything salty or dry grosses me out - though sometimes I do scarf down a bag of potato chips for some reason. Before I was pregnant I rarely drank soda, but these days I find myself craving orange soda and have to be careful not to drink too much (the heartburn and gas afterwards is just not worth it, and the sugar - god, the sugar!)
Things I could handle eating at the beginning of pregnancy, I can no longer stomach. I'm vegetarian but most protein-filled foods now gross me right out. Things like eggs, tofu, beans, etc., which I normally love and eat regularly, are disgusting to me and make me retch. In order to get enough protein I have taken to eating protein bars and peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. Sometimes I can get a few almonds down. Most vegetables turn me off now, unless they are uncooked.
I'm worried that my diet is high in calories and low in nutrients. I do eat a lot of fat and carbs throughout the day as cravings for sweet things strike. My baby book says I should have only gained about 2 lbs. by now, but I'm sure I must have gained closer to 5-7 lbs. or more (I'm at about 9 weeks). I take prenatal vitamins but I'm just worried that my diet is unhealthy. Unfortunately I can't stomach any of the "healthy" foods I'm supposed to be eating.
Right now all I can really eat is sugar and carbs (like white processed carbs NOT the good kind!!!) muffins, orange sherbet, ice cream sandwiches etc. I have been wanting lots of watermelon which excites me because at least its real food! I've eaten spaghetti with very little sauce a couple of times but then it started bothering me so now it's out. I was eating very very healthy before I got pregnant and it's almost like anything I was eating before makes me super grossed out/nauseous so I'm having trouble wanting anything remotely good for me. I still can't drink water either :( It's really frustrating because I know that I am not doing anything good for myself nutritionally - I can't even take my prenatals without getting sick! I'm really hoping that I will be able to eat normally once I'm squarely in the second trimester. I've told myself that right now it's all about survival but the moment I can eat more normally, it's all about health! I plan to completely forego any sugars/processed carbs and do a LOT of walking to help my poor little pancreas.
