I don't want anything greasy. I've had a taste for milk and poached eggs.
Everything tastes really sweet to me right now! Especially carby things like potatoes and milk and (sprouted grain) bread! Much sweeter than usual. But even meat tastes sweet, like we had chicken for dinner and, you guessed it, it tasted sweet!
I was really craving pizza so I made some little mini-pizzas on sprouted grain toast. They were yummy (and sweet).
Also, made up a nice chart and list of food groups I need to eat each day to keep myself on track. I usually eat healthy anyway but seems I need to get more protein in. I don't eat meat very often so I guess I'll hits the nuts and beans even harder now!
Me: Sarah, married to: J, mommy to: C (8/10) and E (11/12)
Yesterday 12/28/2009 I had the following:
Breakfast: 1 scrambled egg with cheese, whole grain sprouted bread with butter, 1/2 a grapefruit, and herbal tea.
Snack: Corn chips with eggplant hummus and olives and 3 squares of chocolate (Which is a significant drop in sweets for me ).
Lunch: Mixed brown and wild rice with butter, swiss chard, kale, lemon, and salmon.
Dinner: Pasta with chicken, tomatoes, and asparagus in a butter/wine sauce. (Which now that I think of the wine in the sauce I probably should have avoided it.)
I keep a bottle of water with at all times and that's what I drink besides my morning cup of tea. I also take cod liver oil and a multi that has 800mcg of folic acid.
My stomach has been upset, not m/s but Im going to the bathroom a lot(not #1). So Im trying to drink gatorade and apple juice. Uggghhh anyone else going thru this? I was up all night... I was kinda crampy too. Af would have been due yesterday. So maybe my body hasnt adjusted.
Breakfast I'll have a fruit and milk smoothie with high vitamin butter oil and cod liver oil (for vit A & D) and a couple of scrambled eggs with grassfed butter and raw cheddar. I usually add coconut oil to the smoothie but am out atm...I'm also adding in a caffeinated tea with cream this morning to see if I can get something going in the lower digestive tract iykwim?...
Snack will be smoked salmon and cream cheese on sprouted grain toast
Lunch will be left over stew
Snack will be fruit, cashews (folic acid!) and cheese
Dinner will be a roasted pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes and garlicky green beans
The second trimester will find me focusing on protein and calcium to build the baby's bones and muscles and the third trimester I will be focusing on fish, fish, fish and more fish to build a nice intelligent brain

I have given up coffee cold turkey (I never drank a lot, but usually about 4-6 oz./day at least) just because it hasn't sounded good to me. Yesterday was my first day of really feeling kind of sick all day, so DH was so sweet and brought me toast and grilled cheese all day while I couchsurfed. I've also been having a BIG smoothie every morning the last four or five days.
This morning, I wanted chick-fil-a SO BAD and nothing else would do and I was in a GREAT mood after! Ha. About two hours of errands later, I told DH I wanted more, but i settled for a big salad at home.
Who unleashed this hunger monster?! Also, the thirst monster. So thirsty for water only, all the time!
My condolences Cinderella on the m/s. I have just had a very little bit, but feeling nauseous is way up there on my list of worst feelings in the world. I hope I won't have too much.
I haven't had the m/s hit me full on yet, but I'm expecting it to anytime. So far I've been able to stomach coffee (decaf, go me!) but I'm sure the baby will let me know when that is out if this pregnancy is like my last one. Mostly, nothing really sounds good. I'm trying to up my water and cut down on Diet Pepsi and have been doing well so far.
I got a new Kitchen Aid blender for my wedding so I think I will need to break that out and do the smoothie thing some of you have mentioned. That sounds yummy! No cravings yet. But I made some chocolate brownies last night because I wanted something sweet. Last pregnancy, sweets were not on the to eat list. At all. Wondering if this will go away eventually. We will see...
Our dream come true, Chloe Aleksandra arrived on 9-10-10.
I just finished reading the pregnancy section of Nina Planck's book Real Food for Mother and Baby.
As with the other two I have no taste for anything with a smoke flavor. Not too many other aversions yet.
I'm actually craving alot of meat and fatty things, and dark leafy greens... but that could change because m/s hasn't hit me in the past until 6 weeks or so. With my last pregnancy I had no resolve (also had a 8 m/o babe at the time), and really just ate junk to get through feeling crummy, which was really a vicious cycle. I'm bound and determined to eat well this time.

I just tried to eat some oatmeal and couldn't have more than a few bites. I am not nauseous, but I am feeling food aversions. This is how I was with DD.... I didn't eat much the first few weeks. This time I am nursing too though, so I need to eat more than usual.... We will see how it goes.
You ladies are inspiring me!!!

I'm sure we'll all be happy to find out that studies have shown that mother's who eat some dark chocolate everyday during pregnancy have babies who smile more
I just want to say I can eat everything, which is a HUGE change from DD and I feel great about that right now. I've been on cleanse/supplement regiment since the summer to try to avoid HG this time that it continues.
In addition to my raspberry and nettle teas, I've added lots of dried fruits (figs, dates and prunes) and a smoothie of oat milk, carob (calcium), and nettle. Also bran to my morning musli to keep things moving .

I have been craving fast food chicken, which is QUITE unusual for me. Chick-fil-a was closed today, so we went to this place called Cane's and I am honestly thinking of going again. My husband is worried I am growing a trans fats baby, but I swear I never eat fast food! I don't know what this is about. My most favorite is Mexican food, and I have had no interest in that at all. Sweets either and I am usually made of candy!
I am trying to think what I am going to go scavenge now.
Are prenatal vitamins making anyone else sick? They make me feel so rotten and my mom, who has worked in labor & delivery and maternity care for 30 years (and mother to 5!) said not to take them just now and to just try to eat a lot of dairy, leafy greens, and nuts. Not taking them almost totally keeps the nausea at bay, unless of course, I am hungry.
OMG, I am a hungry, hungry hippo! Off to get a snack...
