I had trouble with meat until over 20 weeks.  I couldn't eat any meat other than tuna fish for the entire first trimester.  Many women report the same kind of aversion. 


One theory is that meat is more easily contaminated with parasites, bacteria, and other things that can harm the growing baby, so our bodies just avoid it during the most vulnerable phase of pregnancy.  There isn't a lot of solid scientific evidence for aversions during pregnancy, however, so  most explanations are just hypothetical.

I've been pretty turned off by meat as well...I was last time as well. Now my hemoglobin is low, but I still can't bring myself to eat much meat, especially chicken, which is normally a staple in our house. I can't stand the texture. 


I have no idea what the reason might be...I just try and eat a healthy as i can, but some days it's a struggle!
