Severe m/s doesn't usually set in for me until around 7 or 8 weeks so I am making a contentious effort to enjoy whatever appeals to me while I can! This morning I made strawberry shortcake : and this afternoon I gobbled up some flax seed chips and green chili dip. Last night for dinner all I wanted was roasted veggies so I went to the farmers market and got potatoes, onions, carrots, brussel sprouts, garlic, mushrooms and we tossed them in EVOO and red wine vinegar and lightly salted them. It was delicious!

What is everyone eating???

Bleh. As little as possible. With DD I was like you Leogirl, no m/s and ate whatever I wanted. But with this one I've been sick as a dog. Praying it ends with the first trimester!

Ohhh, you misread lol. I've suffered Hypermesis with 2 out of 4 and the only reason I didn't last time was thanks to Zofran. I get incredibly sick, but not usually until 7 or 8 weeks in. I'm 5w and about 4 days now...so it will hit soon enough.

Hang in there!!!

M/S kicked in today... begining of my 7th week. So mints sound great today. lol

Still craving a baked potato actually... since last night... it'd probably be more of a pain to go to the store and get everything I want on it than to go to a restruant and get one though. lol

I've eaten so much meat these last couple days, its crazy!!

I had ribs for lunch yesterday and pork and lamb for dinner. Soooo good.

And mashed potatoes. But I could eat mashed potatoes for every meal too.

Spicy Spicy Spicy for me made some homemade nachos for lunch and had to have them covered in jalapeno peppers.

Also made some very tart lemonade it is all I can stand. I usually carry a sig bottle around with water and I cant stand water need lemonade

DH baked some banana Bread this morning. It is pretty much all I have had today. I bet it's all gone before he gets home.

A baked potato does sound good.:
I just had some green olives too. yum-yum

I feel siiiick unless I'm eating potatoes with yogurt and salt, drinking lemonade, or (today) eating something that approximates my mother's fried chicken. (It was Bell&Evans chicken nuggets. I ate a whole box.)

Also muskmelon.

Anything green sounds terribly unappealing.

I crave chocolate milkshakes ALL the time! With whipped cream please!

Mornings i always want plain yogurt and a bowl of cheerios,
but I have wild cravings later in the day ... I had to leave work early on Friday because i NEEDED a bacon bbq cheeseburger. Beef stew last night. Pepperoni pizza last week. Normally I'm a brown rice and steamed greens kind of girl, but right now all I want is fat, protein, and dairy!

I never felt sick with DD, so this is new to me. All I want is queso and tortilla chips! But I am sure in a couple hours that wont sound good anymore.

Potatoes... Oh my, you are bringing back memories. When I was pregnant with dd, I moved cross-country at about seven weeks. All I could eat were creamy white things: Kentucky Fried Chicken mashed potatoes and McD's vanilla ice cream. I swear I made my dad stop at every KFC we passed... ... until I discovered I could eat steak! (That made both of us a lot happier!)

My poor partner is trying so hard to make sure I'm eating healthy things, but all I want is salt and fat--so far the same thing I wanted last time--a chicken sandwich from wendy's.

I'm still craving guacamole, chips & salsa, but DH is getting REALLY sick of going to Mexican places - I would go for lunch and dinner every day if I could get away with it! :

Lemonade too... mmmm. Must be very lemony and real, though. At brunch on Sunday the waitress brought me Snapple lemonade in a glass, which is just awful sugar water. I threw a little fit, like "this isn't lemonade" "yes it is" "no, it's sugar water - there's no lemon in there" "well it's what we have, it's snapple" "well, i wanted real lemonade." "sorry we don't have that" "fine, but i don't want THAT."

Anyone else having a short temper too?

What I'm eating is NOT what I want. I desperately want a Papa John's pizza, dripping with cheese. What I'm craving seems to be cheese. And Doritos. I'm trying to get ahold of my best friend to get me some, but I haven't had any luck so far (I can't drive, so I have to wait until DH gets home at 11:30 for anything). I also want my spaghetti, but again, not an option (not only do we not have a stove we can use, but it's such a pain cooking on a hot plate and we don't have all the ingredients). *sigh* I'm hungry, but everything that's available looks gross.

I'm avoiding Mexican food for a few more weeks still because that's what got me into labor with Lilly.

how freakin' cliche is this? .... I've eaten almost two jars of pickles over the last three days.

otherwise, i am craving things that i can't eat due to DS's food allergies. plain yogurt and pad thai, specifically.

I have a weird spicy craving, too. I'm only 5 weeks and 3 days. Dh and I just made some jalapeño poppers. Definitely, not on the "light" side.

fresh jalapeños
cream cheese, softened
bacon

slice off the top and cut the peppers in half and scrape out the seeds and vein
fill each pepper half with cream cheese and wrap with a 1/4 to 1/2 piece of bacon. Lay halves on a rack on a cookie sheet at 350 for about 45ish minutes.

Man, they are so good. I think I could eat them for every meal.

Stir fried peppers, squash, carrots and onions in Trader Joe's soyaki sauce with big chunks of marinated tofu. Served over pasta 'cause my kids ate all the rice. I have had a fried egg and cheese sandwhich before bed every day this week so far. What I am NOT eating is anything green and leafy or yogurt. I am supposed to avoid wheat due to the twins' food sensitivity, so almost everything else in the house is too much work when I am really hungry. I really want gobs and heaps of potatoes, but they are the main trigger food for my GD, so I am actively avoiding all things potato.

my cravings have started....same as with my other pgs, I crave eggs, tuna fish sandwiches, and subway. Too bad those last two are either limited or off limits . I just ate a peanut butter sandwich, and it just wasn't what I wanted.

It's gonna be a long 9 months .
