Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one.

 

I've been ok with sweet potatoes made into custard, for breakfast (with pumpkin pie spice, it's just like pumpkin pie filling).  Rice is ok - rice crackers and cheese goes down pretty well most of the time, and I've got some butternut-squash pasta I'm reeeeally looking forward to for dinner... but yeah, protein needs to be wrapped in some kind of starch for it to work for me now.  As I said to a friend this morning, I kind of hate it, but at the same time, I might as well enjoy it.  That was right after she overheard me sending my DH for a donut, LOL.  The donut sounded better than it tasted, but then I remembered that I have a good donut recipe I could haul out AND I think I even have some pork fat in my freezer - the freezer which really needs to have some space made in it for blueberries - that can be rendered into lard in which to fry said donuts.  Hey, if I'm gonna have a junky first trimester, it might as well be QUALITY junk.

My latest cravings: orange juice, tomatoes, and corn tortillas. Yep, no protein in that list.

I would love the recipe you use for this!

It sort of varies, but the basic method is this: take 2-3 medium sweet potatoes and bake them until they're REALLY soft.  Cool and pull the skin off, then dump the sweet potato insides in the blender with 2-3 eggs and about a cup of milk, sugar or honey to taste, and a good wallop of pumpkin pie spice mix.  Blend until smooth, pour into ramekins and then bake in a water bath at 300F for about an hour or until obviously done.  Yummers.

Spughy that sounds amazing! I bet you could do variants on this as well. I might put a gram cracker crust in the ramekins, or maybe some cream cheese into the sweet potato, it would be like pumpkin cheese cake! Oh, I am so making this!

Thanks for the fabulous idea!

Wow! I am also a mom who had been eating paleo/TF prior to pregnancy. I am like, whaaaaaaat? I have bought things I have to hide from my kids: Justin's peanut butter cups! And once... Dr. Pepper! OMG! I can't even drink water very well right now.

This morning sickness has been my mildest of the four so far. I am hoping to be like a regular pregnant lady who feels good in the second trimester. I am nine weeks now. So, still optimistic.

How are others doing and how far along are you?

I am taking magnesium baths every night, plus keeping up my b6. I will avoid antihistamines (although for me, they have helped in the past) bc I find they dry up my milk, and it is already dwindling. :-(

I'm in the constant queeze club, up right now at 5am, trying to find something to eat that will help.  Protein is my quickest fix, but I'm having good/bad days in terms of responsiveness to what I eat.  Some days it just doesn't matter.

 

I would love to get back into my acupuncturist, and I may try some B6.

 

Velveeta, I'm with you, worried to try Unisom that has been recommended because it's an antihistamine too and I'm still nursing.

just an update, in case it could be helpful for anyone else:

 

I finally got desperate enough, between the no sleeping and worsening nausea, to take a Unisom the night before last.  I slept a full night and had 24 hrs nausea free.  Amazing!
