FOOD first tri

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I pretty much am craving french fries and ranch and coke.  And that's it.  My inner child is roaringly hungry.  But I can't eat much at a time (which is good, since " not much" is, as stated below, plenty of calories!).

 

 ALSO, am I the only one nursing (or not) and feeling like I could eat everything in sight?  I am eating everything I can fit in my mouth lately.  But I don't feel like I'm gaining wieght. DD2 had 7 feedings today, long ones, I wonder if she is helping me not balloon up (I literaly at e amedium pizza for dinner, with soda pop.,  I know the healthy things to eat, so thanks in advance for any advice but I am long past caring what I eat the first tri.  They (anything green, fresh, meaty) make my stomach turn.  I will live on green smoothies and steak in the third trimester I promise :) ).

I don't want to eat anything. Anything at all. If it has a smell at all it makes me want to hurl and if it doesn't then I'll force myself to eat some to keep from losing too much weight. 

 

I've been eating tons of ice cream.

That was my first baby! She wanted wendy's chocolate shake things and that was it. This baby is definately different.

One day I like some things and the next I don't. Its weird and hard to eat a lot of things.

Up until I discovered the wonders of B-6 I was eating constantly (and gaining weight) because if I got the slightest bit hungry, the nausea was horrible. Now I'm not nauseous, but I'm not feeling like eating a whole lot, either. I mainly make myself because I know I need to. But at least I'm able to manage a bit more of a diverse diet than before.

My first baby, not the greatest diet. Second pregnancy, much better when I started reading WAPF literature about how superior prenatal nutrition (raw milk, lots of pastured eggs, etc) makes more beautiful babies with wide palates, less health issues and less morning sickness. So, I tried it and I'm a believer! I know it doesn't work for everyone, but when I'm craving Coke (and I crave it), I up my chlorophyll and it helps! I barely had any nausea when I started the day off with raw milk and eggs smile.gif

Oh, I'm nursing two, so I understand hunger! smile.gif

It took forever for pregnancy weight to come off with #1. With #2 I was eating more and more good fats and weighed less after 6 wks than before I was pregnant.

I am drinking grass fed cow's milk and eating pastured eggs and bone broths, etc and still having morning sickness. Where do you get chlorophyll? Do you take it in capsule? I am starting to drink protein milkshakes- a tiny bit of mint ice cream, milk, and grass fed cow's whey protein.  They are delicious and give me tons of protein to help me feel full and grow my baby.  Especially since eating is very hard sometimes

I get my chlorophyll from Natures Sunshine and drink 1t in water 2x/day. It sounds like you're already doing a great job. I'll look back in some of my sources and see if I can throw any ideas at you!

Sorry to re-post this, but I was looking at this thread, and ended up posting in the other one. Preggo brain, I guess. :P

The first five weeks, I was eating very healthily, but the past two weeks I've changed to eating whatever I can manage to get down, which is mostly junk, breads, ice cream, and cereals (Or the complete opposite of what I was eating before.).   I started losing weight again too, so I've been trying to add liquid calories that I normally wouldn't drink, like juice and Ensure.  I can't even manage to get my normal health food store drink mix down.  GAG  If I eat a piece of toast or an English muffin, I slather on thick butter and honey for the extra calories.



 



I've been having intense cravings as well.  Once I get something in my mind, I HAVE to have it, no matter what.  Like I was craving a big juicy burger one day.  So I grilled these lovely sirloin burgers, and made up this giant burger.  I swear I stopped to say that it was the best thing I had ever eaten with every bite.  And it sat on my stomach just fine.  Then I thought I'd try the same thing the next day.  Nope.  It just didn't taste good at all, and sat on my stomach like a bloated rock, making me burp nasty grill taste for half the day after eating only half.  



 



I was craving yellow cake with chocolate frosting for three days.  I kept denying it because there was no nutritional value, but finally had to cave because it was literally driving me crazy!  Every time I closed my eyes, all I would see is this giant slice of cake.   I made a special trip into town to buy a cake mix and frosting, then realized I had forgotten to buy eggs when I got home.  I almost cried and my family thought I had totally lost it.  lol



I'm so thoroughly frustrated right now with the bad diet and weirdo cravings. Nothing is consistent. I can eat it one day, but not the next. Today it was mashed potatoes and Crispix. Yuck....

granolamommie - I just poted this link in another thread, but you might be interested:

Magnesium, B6 and B12 supplementation might be worth looking into.  Sometimes even on an amazing real, traditional diet we're still deficient in things, particularly magnesium, which is hard to come by.

post #11 of 12

see I was wondering that. I actually have some magnesium that I was thinking of supplementing with.

post #12 of 12
Do a cal/mag supplement together. Calcium helps the magnesium absorb. Calm something is the name of the cal/mag supplement my friend took.
