I'd tell you my list but I'm nauseous right now I was SO hungry all day yesterday but last night the m/s seems to have set in. I'm glad to have symptoms but feel rather yucky. Actually even while nauseated I'm still hungry : :LOL

Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I have been eating peaches - yum! And cheese. Not together. :LOL

I've mainly been thirsty though - I am just chugging the H2O!

Thankfully, the thought of anything overly fried or overly sweet just isn't agreeing with me. Guess this is going to be my health-nut baby!

(I'm posting here and in March bec. Im right at the end of March.. you never know..)
Im at 5 weeks and hungry and thirsty all the time. I bring snacks like grapes, granola, trail mix and baby carrots with me to work... which I forgot today and am hungry already, even though I had pancakes for breakfast.:P

Well yesterday I ate an entire box of Reduced Fat Cheeze-its without meaning to...

Today I made peanut butter and banana sandwiches and they were way better than the turkey sandwiches I brought with me yesterday!

Other than that I'm still struggling to find something to fill the never ending hunger.. mozzarella cheese was good today too.

Ok, I tried cottage cheese.. yuck! lol

And even though I crave chocolate it's just too sweet right now and I can only eat a bit at a time, not too much or I feel sick! One peice of peanut butter and honey toast was great.. 2 is not so great!

I had to post on this thread because I had three full lunches today! My friends tell me that I've lost a lot of weight lately, and I was only 110 to begin with. Probably due to stress from the divorce. But my appetite is roaring back. I gained 45 pounds for my first pg. I hope to top that in this one!
