So about two weeks ago I could not stand the sight or smell of food, let alone try to eat it. Now I feel like I am always starving and I cannot get enough food. Anyone else feel like this? Here is an example...for breakfast at 7:00 I had a beagel and cream cheese, it is only 9:15 and I am having cheese its. Oh well

That's funny, it's almost been the opposite for me! Two weeks ago I was eating a lot, VERY hungry. Now, the past couple days I've felt yucky and not wanted to eat much. Last night I had a stomach ache all night and now I don't feel very good this morning either. BUT, last night I did eat chinese food, which tasted great at the time...

Who knows??

Right now it's the best (or worse) of both worlds. I feel so, so, so hungry. But I can barely eat because everything looks/smells/tastes horrible. Grumbling tummy and no way to stop it.

Even the taste of my own saliva makes me nauseated.

Yep! Watching "Food Network" has been especially challenging lately...one second, they show black beans w/some Mexican queso crumbled on it & I'm thinking "YUMMY!!! I want that NOW!"...10 seconds later they show a taco w/scrambled eggs, cheese, peppers, & veggies, and I have to avert my eyes or I get queasy.

*I* complain that I have to eat every 1/2 hr or so. I want to do more than eat all dang day!!
I have to eat a BIG breakfast, when I'm the least likely inclined to eat. I find that if I eat protein, I can go a little longer before the "eat NOW!!" urge hits. Problem is, I can't stand the thought of most forms of protein. Thank goodness I'm not allergic to peanuts...

Me too, gotta force down food ever 1 1/2 hrs to keep from getting super sick. I DREAD eating. Most of the time I can't tell if I'm hungry or sick


I pretty much have to eat whatever my current craving is, then if I even THINK about it the next day I gag like crazy.

I am so there with you! It's funny how the cravings are so short and intense, like sprinters, but the aversions are long lasting! I can't think about milk still, blech. A lot of dairy makes me woozy, in fact (except for ice cream!)

Actually, my pickle craving has been pretty sustained. I'm loving a lot of things that are sour-ish. Tabbouli last night was soooo good! My DH is the best for running out and getting it while I vegged out on the couch (doing homework, but still). And he brought baklava, too! yum....

This is me right now. I MUST eat or I feel terrible. But the thought of food is gross. It's been a long few weeks!

I am with you here, so sick all the time but starving as well. Today's craving is potato and grapes (not together
) DH is making a run later because I have no desire to be seen out in public today LOL

I am counting down this first trimester!!

Warmly,
Erin
