Food Cravings and Food Aversions

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
So, where are you at?

I am having serious food aversions right now. Almost everything is BLECH. If something is actually OK, by the time I'm done eating it it has moved to the NEVER TOUCH AGAIN list. It was the same way with DS; I never had real cravings, just aversions, not even after the morning sickness was gone. So many things are on the Do Not Get In My Belly list and so precious few are on the Tolerate list. Probably top aversion is chicken right now. I'm sure vomiting will commence in the near future. I only hope it ends around 13 weeks like last time.

If you have cravings, what are they? If you have aversions, let's hear em!

No aversions yet, but I am craving anything and everything SALTY!!!

I feel like I am in a weird middle stage. I do not have total aversions, but nothing sounds good. I do not have cravings, but some things sound tolerable. I did not have strong aversions with DS until 6-7 weeks, and I assume it will be similar this time.

Cravings: chocolate doughnuts, "football game nachos," cheese enchiladas - I long for spice and sugar.

Aversions: salty soupy stuff, meat, all salad dressings, mushrooms

Same here. I make something, take a bite and think "That's not it. Let's try this..." over and over.

I don't have any aversions yet, though the french fries I had tonight did not taste as good as they do normally (I had a strong aversion to potatoes in the first tri with my son).

Couple things I LOVE though, as of this week...

Cream of Wheat with a big pat of butter added, along with a couple teaspoons of brown sugar. I could eat this all day.

Plain bagels, toasted, with butter and strawberry jelly and (sounds gross, but I NEEDED IT and it is sooo good) a quick shake of salt.

No cravings or aversions yet. I'm a pretty picky eater generally. Our joke was that the way we'd find out I was pregnant by me suddenly going "y'know, I'd love a banana."

right now everything is an aversion. I am choking food down and breathing through it so I don't throw it back up. blech.

I'm having both aversions and hardly anything sounds good. Something will sound appealling till I actually have it in my hands then yuck!

ME too!! Right now nothing is good. My major aversion is animal products, especially if I can see the carcus. EWWWWW. It happened last preg also, I went total veggie for months, could not eat anything that came from an animal, milk, cheese, eggs, meat, nothing. Then it just went away overnight. That is totally strange for me since I LOVE animal. : But just the thought of the animal being dead on my table is too much. Even the smell makes me want to hurl! Kind of puts a damper on evening meals and shopping for the family since my family loves animal. :

I don't have any real aversions or cravings that I've noticed. I haven't really had too much nausea though either. I guess we'll see though.

I'm nauseous off and on but when I'm hungry (which is fairly often), I want protein-rich foods like steak, beans, nuts, peanut butter, etc. I had Indian the other day and it was amazing. Veggies are quickly losing their appeal but some fruits still sound good.

If Peacelovingmama and BakerALM lived near each other, you two should cook dinner together. BakerALM'll make the veggie dishes, and Peacelovingmama'll cook the animal stuff

I can't decide much what I really want- just depends, but I knew I was really preggo when coffee made me ill. Normally I am a 2 cup or so a day person of good dark brew, but it makes me want to gak!

Yesterday I had a difficult day of eating. I was hungry, but I did not want anything. At 9 at night all of the sudden I told DH I really, really would like ham. I nice spiral ham. I usually hate pork. We might have to buy a spiral ham today, but by the time I have it in front of me I will probably detest it.

I cant find anything I want to eat. And if i think I have found something I want, it goes away.
I was just grabbing all this food that looked SO GOOD at the market the other day, by the time I made it to the front and they were ringing it up, the thought of eating any of it was making me gag.
Ugh.

For some reason I have an aversion to meat when I am pregnant. I remember when I was pregnant with my son, my mom was at my house cooking ground beef. I had to go in the bedroom, shut the door and then stuff a towel under it so that I wouldn't have to smell it cooking. Even thinking of that is making me even more nauseated as I type.

For a while I craved raw vegetables and anything bitter or sour. That has passed. Now I'm just icky constantly.
