I made the boys cheese & chix quesadillas this morning, & 10 minutes later was able to choke a slice down myself. I ended up making myself one -- and no morning sickness today! Just some UNREAL fatigue. That may be more to do with Aiden waking up at 4:23 this morning & staying up until 1/4 to 7...then we got to take an hour nap. DH had the audacity to be grouchy this morning -- he *gasp* had to wake up at 4, then at 7 for a couple minutes to help. God forbid we interrupt his highnesses sleep. : Grrrr

That actually sounds good to me -- now... I think I was seriously lacking in veggies yesterday, because I went salad crazy...I tend to eat a lot of dairy & forget veggies, so I'm going to try to be more balanced. Although I had that quesadilla for breakfast, and am having a bagel w/ cc & jam for lunch... Maybe I'll munch on some fresh green beans after -- or another cucumber...mmmmmm

I feel a veggie aversion coming on. I was walking through the salad section at the grocery store and was so grossed out by it. Then I had a glass of OJ and was totally unimpressed - I usually LOVE it.

I think I have a problem with carmelized onions. Do they have a 12 step program for that?

I have seriously gone through two boxes of butter and a bag of onions this week alone. :

Mavournin, reading your post is hard for me--ooh, no, onion.

Funny thing is that not 45 mins ago, I was devouring a pizza with roasted garlic, sundried tomatos, and...carmelized onions. I was dreaming about this pizza for lunch. I was so happy to get it. I ate 3 pieces!

And now...I would like to curl up on the floor. I hate to puke, and I am wondering if it would be better to throw up. And all I can taste in my mouth is onion.

D**n me and my goofy cravings.
Wonder if some olives would help?
-Elizabeth

Elizabeth - the curse of m/s is that you feel no better after puking. When you have a stomach virus, I can stand to puke b/c you know you'll feel better at least for a while. But with m/s, puke and you'll still feel like puking. There's no payoff.

Try the olives

I just had a yummy pork stirfry (I'm learning to cook! gasp) with onions. YUM! I had to pick through it to get more mushrooms & onions after I was full... I think I might make up more mushrooms with the same spices in a few hours (once I have more space! )

I'll have to try that carmalized onion thing... sounds yummy. dh almost never eats onions.



I think the olives might help, too. Just think of that nice sharp & salty bite. Dang, now I have to go fit a few olives in!

Didn't have any weird food cravings with DD...
But did get an aversion to milk around my 11th week.

Even though I just got my BFP today I've been eating TONS all week...which isn't normal. Last night around 10pm I HAD to have a plate of sketti.
And I just now woke up to pee and could not stop thinking about eating mashed potatoes! YUM!
I've never woke up in the middle of the night to eat! LOL!
So since I don't want to wake up DH with the smell of cooking potatoes on the stove ( ) I settled for a tall cold glass of water and a ham and cheese sandwich with mustard!

But I still want those potatoes!!

See, I'm still mostly lovin' veg. Which is a very good thing, 'cause our fridge is completely full... (I love organics delivery, I really do!)

Although I wasn't down with the slightly undercooked chard the other night. The brocolli and zucchini were fine, though.

Oh, and ice cream - yes! I'm usually rather better about this, we'll go through maybe two pints a month. I think it'll be slightly more this month... (I'm all about the Julia's Organic, btw. Almost all Ben'n'Jerry's have chocolate - which is nummy! But also migraine inducing, and I just don't need that on top of everything else, y'know?)

Ooh, can I jump in here?

Let's see. No food adversions with ds, and none so far with this pg although I am only 4 weeks. I have noticed my appetite has picked up and everything you guys are mentioning sounds great!

Spinach. It's spinach I can never do while preganant. :Puke

Actually, any mooshy green blob on plate will turn me off. I'm a little worried about the 9, count 'em 9, collards out there in the garden. I have a feeling Dh will be eating those all alone this year.

The title of this thread makes me laugh when I see it--I had to spit a green olive out in someone's garden the other day--yuck! (Granted, I don't normally like them anyway, but this one had a garlic clove in it, so I thought it might taste more garlicky than olive-y but no luck...).

And the thought of anything sugary--ugh. I don't have real morning sickness (yet... I'll be 5 weeks tomorrow, but I didn't get it with dd, so here's hoping...), but ice cream, cookies, cake--I can't bear the thought. Fruit I can do, and blueberries are just dreamy to me right now. Tamari almonds are another of my favorites--I joke with my partner that I like the "gatherer diet" in the first trimester--fruit and nuts all the way!

it's funny how different everyone is -- although for the record, I wasn't diggin the garlic clove stuffed olives the 1 time I tried them, either. I like the "gatherer diet" idea... we're just gathering different things, lol.
