I am so frustrated. I feel like I am suddenly back in first trimester land. Nothing sounds good. I am eating like crap. I was such a whole foods nut and now I eat Instant Breakfast (hello, Nestle... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">, Eggos, Pringles, microwave popcorn, blah, blah, blah. Nothing healthy sounds good and it is so hard to get the energy to make something healthy to eat. Sometimes I make some of our local chicken and veggies for dinner but mostly it's just junk. I am having serious guilt issues about how I am nourising this baby. But I can't even think of beans & rice or spaghetti with whole wheat pasta or anything healthy without feeling nauseous. I feel so terrible. Guilty and worried and yucky and unhealthy. Does anyone have any advice or sympathy?

Food is frustrating me too. In fact, I almost broke down in tears about it today with dh. But it's not because nothing healthy sounds good, but because we just don't have enough in the house! When I got pg, I always heard that all you'd need is 300 extra calories, but I've been eating a LOT more than that! I think it's because I was only eating one or two meals a day before I got pg (and losing weight nicely, I might add). I wasn't hungry or deprived feeling. But I've had to start eating a lot more since becoming pg, and it's been a huge adjustment to our grocery system. Dh worries about the size of our grocery bill which makes me feel guilty, and then the midwife tells me to eat more, and I feel guilty, and then I come home and try to eat more, and I can't find anything to eat so we go to the store, and I feel guilty! I just don't know what to do about it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> No advice, but plenty of sympathy here.

Allow me to answer this as I sit here eating my chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I can totally sympathize. I used to be Miss Health Nut extraordinaire, and now I'm a total junk food addict. I've been trying to at least get organic junk food, but I know it's still not good for me or baby <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I feel like you, though. If I wasn't eating this stuff I wouldn't be able to eat anything. Most healthy food just sounds revolting at this point!

I'm there too. Nothing is appetizing anymore. And all the protein I'm supposed to be eating I am so completely sick of!!! No more eggs, cheese, peanut butter, etc. I signed up for an organic produce delivery every week and it's great because it forces me to eat all these fruits and veggies so that they don't go bad. But I really need to make sure I'm getting protein with those fruits and veggies. 2nd trimester, all I could think about was food and what I wanted to eat. Now nothing is appealing. Hot chocolate is good... protein from the milk and a little sugar kick for the baby (and wasn't there a study that said that chocolate makes for happier babies?).
