i had a miscarriage a week ago.<br><br>
i was doing really well with my eating up to that point.<br><br>
now it's just terrible... i'm not hungry in the AM, i'm waiting to long to eat and then i just grab the first thing i can find. yesterday i ate the rest of ds' apple and i felt positive about that. i think it's the only fruit i've had in a week.<br><br>
there is no one here to cook for me.... my dh is totally lame when it comes to cooking and our housemate is away housesitting.<br><br>
help me get back on track again, this kind of eating isn't helping me feel any better....

Can you or do you cook? Are you not able to do the shopping on your own. I guess I'm confused, but I'd love to help. Take it easy on yourself for the time being. Remember the easy, healthy stuff in the house. Baked potatoes with whatever toppings you have. If you have any rice and a bag of neglected frozen veggies in the freezer (most people do) you can make a stir fry. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches aren't half bad, really most sandwiches are pretty good. Even fruit smoothies or homemade milk shakes are good stuff when you use frozen or regular fruit in them. Or even just snacking on healthy things all day long wont hurt for a while. A handful of nuts, a piece of cheese, yogurt, any fruit (even some canned fruit is ok if it's all you have), I like to cook up some frozen veggies and eat it with butter, ect. Good luck and feel better.

First, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> This is an extremely hard time and it may take a little while to get back into your daily routine.<br><br>
I agree with Melaya, just keep healthy stuff around. Throw the junk away, you don't have to cook a bunch in order to eat healthy. If you keep lots of colorful fruit & veggies around, lots of whole grain stuff, even cereal, toast, pancakes, and make them convenient it shouldn't be a huge battle.<br><br>
Take care of yourself.

When I'm really spent, but I want to try to be healthy, try canned Wolfgang Puck chicken and rice soup. I find it is super easy but suprisingly healthy! A compromise from the the local grocery. Try turkey lunch meat sandwiches and fresh fruit and salads - they also work.<br><br>
Take care of yourself. Don't worry about what anyone else thinks right now.<br><br>
PM me if you need support. I've am willing to help.

just wanted to offer a hug...I've been where you are. A week is so soon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Give yourself time. Right now, you just have to grieve. Its a lot taking care of yourself and your other child while dealing with this. I agree with pp. try to keep healthy easy stuff around. Even if you have to spend a little more...after one of my m/c I told dh I needed a premade salad for dinenr every night for about a week. I'm sorry your dh isn't helping much. he is probably grieving as well. hang in there.

miscarriages are so draining and hard, give yourself lots of time to regenerate. my food suggestion would be to tell dh to buy you a roasting chicken and lots of veg. throw the chicken in a huge soup pot of water with some onion, carrot and celery and make chicken stock. take the meat off the bones after 3-4 hours, strain the broth, and cook in lots of veggies and then put the chicken meat back into your huge pot of chicken veggie soup and eat that for the next week. It's so nourishing and very easy, anything else you eat is extra

thank you for all the support... i am doing better, not great, but better.<br><br>
last night we went out to a resturant and i ordered a stuffed portabella mushroom instead of a big plate of gooey pasta.<br><br>
i'm still not feeling much motivated to cook... but i am finally excited about ordering the seeds for my garden this year and so i think that is a good sign.<br><br>
i am kind of on a hormone rollercoaster this weekend and hope my acupuncture appt. tuesday night will help me with how i am feeling, adn even out all these cravings for bad food alternating with not being interested in eating.
