I am supposed to be eating for three. (Well not really... I really do not condone over-eating for pregnancy... in which I mean just having a free for all with what you put in your mouth). I can barely eat for one.
I wake up feeling like food is the last thing I want to see. I choke back some juice and wait.... and wait... and wait until finally my body says fine you can eat something already. After which I eat something... which is usually something out of the realm of what I would normally consider normal for breakfast eating.
A couple of hours pass and I know I should eat something else but the water in my mouth tells me to reconsider. I mentally take go down the list of the foods available to me and see what, if anything, seems remotely appetizing....
I imagine you are getting the picture by now... I have a major issue with food aversions... add in a major case of ever present nausea and it makes for one big dilemma.
Here is the bizzare combination of what I ate today... brace yourself....
orange juice, two brown unsalted rice cakes.... three pm... boiled eggs on an everything bagel (I know the thought of this makes me gag just thinking about it now), part of a fruit salad, a fortune cookie.... six pm.... two spring roles, a protein smoothie and a small bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream....
Disgusting! Oh and to top it off it is my Husband's birthday today and the food aversion monster has rendered it impossible to frequent a nice restaurant... so he is suffering along with me.
I am really hoping this stage only lasts for a few more weeks.
Please tell me that you have some advice for overcoming food aversions or for triumphing over nausea (which does not include a drug)!!!
