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....Edited by heldt123 - 9/22/13 at 5:36pm
