What are you craving/what can you stomach? - Page 3

post #41 of 53

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.

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.

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.

I'm starving right now.  My husband is bringing home chinese take out tonight and I imagine I'm going to be paying for that later on.

I've been craving chinese too! Spaghetti is out, D3 woke up in an awful mood and my desire to cook left with her good attitude. I'm gonna let DH bring home whatever he wants to cause he doesn't cook... really wish he did sometimes.

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.

Cheese and CARBS. I am waiting for DD to wake up so we can go get me some Mac and Cheese from Panera lol. But nothing else looks appealing. With DD I just wanted food and didn't give a damn what I ate. This one's a picky baby lol.

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.

I've been craving eggs with mustard! I mostly eat them microwave poached but sometimes I fry them medium and make an egg mustard sandwich on a whole grain flat out.
