My potatoes have failed me

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
The potatoes that had been so calming to my stomach made me sick tonight.

Oh, woo is me! What can I eat? Those that are really nauseated what is settling well with you?

Pasta, rice, and garbonzo beans all settle my stomach!

Hmm..I haven't tried the pasta but brown rice seems to work pretty good for me. Have you tried hummus (chickpeas) or even black beans? Great sources of protein.

The title of this thread is funny to me - I guess I needed a laugh.

Whole wheat toast, apples, pretzels and cheese are about all I can do right now.

Apples, string cheese, almonds, and honey nut cheerios are all I'm living on right now.

nothing works for me

i am hungry but the throught of food makes me sick and if i dont eat i get sick and their is nothing that sounds good man i really hope this ends soon

but i have been eating nuts any type of nut starting at 2am when i wake starving and then i eat them again as soon as i wake in the morning and that seems to help a little bit once i force myself to acually eat them

Well cheddar cheese and pickles did okay last night. I had heard that sour foods were good for pregnancy nausea.

I had some of that really rich, moist lemon loaf cake with the super-sweet glaze on it this morning and BOY did that hit the spot. The perfect combination of sweet and sour.

Yesterday I drank a whole pitcher of lemonade.

Something about sweet/sour is really good right now. I think that's why I'm loving the veggie grinders (subs, heroes) right now, too. The pickles and the salt and pepper and the tomatoes and cheese... :

Rice pudding can be good, too -- very sweet and heavy with a little cinnamon.

Some things vary day-to-day -- two days ago, pizza was a non-starter but then yesterday when I was really hungry and about to lose it I forced myself to eat some and it helped. Last pg I couldn't do red sauce at all, though.

For me grilled cheese or scrambled eggs work.

Glad I'm not the only one with changing cravings.

First I wanted fish then I baked the fish, DH ate it like nothing else and I barely stomached it.

Now I can't think of one thing to eat. Tried cottage cheese and peaches, the peaches were good, cottage cheese was not so great.

Hope everyone can find something to eat, are you eating protein. This is the hardest for me.

Rice Krispies have helped for me when I can't even think of eating the dinner I cooked for myself and DH. Last night, I cooked pork chops, wild rice and corn, but ate none of it. A bowl of Rice Krispies was all I could handle...then a late night run to McDonalds for a chicken nugget happy meal.:

Me, too.
Meyer lemons are in the stores right now and I've been really craving them. So far I've made lemon chicken, lemon pudding, lemonade...

I am also loving homemade oven fries with lots and lots of ketchup - something we don't even normally have in the house. There's something about the sweet and sour that keeps the nausea at bay.
Finally, I was feeling so, so sick on the weekend and a big bowl of Vietnamese pho really did the trick.

rice, beans and nuts. I've been eating rice cakes with peanut butter every morning as it is the only thing I can keep down for some reason. For lunch and dinner I've had beans and rice mixed with some dark lettuce with a tortilla on the side a lot of the time. Nuts and dried fruit are good snack foods so far.

Popcorn with salt, guiltless gourmet chips (salty), peppermint ice cream (bad, I know) pretzels, black and refried beans with salsa....hang in there!

Try really weak ginger tea.... make sure its weak and not more than 1 cup a day ....

I LOVE CHERRIOS!

For me though, eating anything just about will settle my tummy. Problem is, just thinking about food makes me wanna hurl.

When does m/s end again? Cuz I didn't expirience this w/ the other three.

For me it has to be super processed. Apple Jacks, Coca-Cola, frosted pop tarts, weak lemonade from powder are my best bet. : Sometimes triscuits with cream cheese. Almost anything else makes me puke, and trying something when it's not Exactly What I Want makes me puke, so then I'm two steps behind where I was when I started.

Generally, 95% of my diet is whole, raw foods, but early pregnancy is just opposite-ville. I keep thinking maybe I like this super processed stuff because there are absolutely no nutrients my system has to work on getting out? Whatever it is it's so weird.

Not really helpful suggestions, I know. Good luck!

Thanks for the admission. Coca-cola is a big part of my diet right now and I've been scared to admit it!

coke zero has found its way to our house this pregnancy, and i cannot STAND coke! i have not ever liked plain coke, it was always sickening to me, but i cannot stand diet coke now and want the zero!

megan, something a nurse told me about fighting nausea was to drink the syrup from a can of fruit.. sounded gross, but by accident last week i found myself drinking the juice from the bottom of a container of pineapple and it really hit the spot in the AM and helped fight off a good puke.

i apparently crave a lot of the same things when struck with m/s.. mostly citrus, pineapple, fresh fruit..

OK, while we're being bad! I'm craving all the wrong stuff! I want chocolate more now than ever! I've had ice cream and chocolate chip cookies and I would kill for a chocolate doughnut or bovarian cream filled chocolate eclair! OMG! Oh, and I had some candybars too ...

Toast, rice crispies, ice cream , scrambled eggs, kix cereal when I feel sick. When I feel better, I can eat most foods but some just don't appeal to me right now.
