I don’t know what it is but since two weeks ago all I can stomach is red sauce foods. Pizza, spaghetti, ravioli, tomato bisque. I don’t really crave the food but when it’s time to eat its the only food that doesn’t make me run for the bathroom.
Is anyone else having this issue, only able to eat a certain type of food? If so what’s your food?

During my first trimester, I was all about the carbs. Domino’s pan pizza and soft pretzels were all I wanted to eat. Now, I’m really wanting peanut butter, red meat, and snow cones (I’m 26 weeks today). I’m curious to see how food cravings will change!

I’m severely sick, but spicy food doesn’t bother me. Pancakes are another thing I love.
I’m 11w 3d, I can’t wait for it to go away!

@Mrslovebug: All I want are carby things. Nothing with a lot of meat. Nothing fried. For godsake not a salad (tried, blech). Which means I’ve been eating a lot of pizza and pasta and toast and crackers and chips. I try to sneak fruit in between meals so I’m getting this little one some actual nutrients… but I’ve been told to basically eat what I’m able to and that’s what I’m going to do (and not feel too badly about it!). I’ve also lost 5 lbs in the 6 or so weeks since I got my BFP so I definitely am just eating what I can so I eat!

I see to be alright in the mornings with my oatmeal and fruit…but the rest of the day I have a food aversion to EVERYTHING!!! We just went grocery shopping and I thought I was going to be sick right there in the store just thinking about food. And my smeller is picking up every foul smell anywhere which isn’t helping 🙁

My mom ate nothing but fish during her pregnancies. It’s a wonder that she didn’t get mercury poisoning!

First trimester all I wanted to eat was watermelon and occasionally cheese and crackers. Then I went through a period of loving spaghetti, which eventually grew into a general craving for carbs. Now I’m 34 weeks and I don’t have a particular appetite for anything. If you put something in front of me, I’ll eat it because I’m hungry but if you ask me to choose something to eat, I’d probably starve to death before I could think of anything that “sounds good”.

I usually eat a very balanced diet, but in my first trimester, that definitely did not happen. I didn’t have any cravings, but tons of aversions. I couldn’t eat meat or vegetables. I also had a really hard time with water and any carbonated drinks. I survived on toast, soup, fruit and cheese sandwiches! That’s all I could stomach until all the aversions miraculously went away when I was about 14 weeks.

Only bland nonsmelly food here. Was all I could eat until a few days ago. Bagels were my savior. If I could get one down in the am I would be able to stay less queasy. If I got to the point where I vomited it would be a miserable day because I wouldn’t want to eat anymore but that would make me sicker.
It’s interesting to hear others stories. Pasta and any tomato based sauce have been an absolute no for me.

@Mrslovebug: During my first tri all I could keep down was french fries. Wedge fries, curly fries, fries with ketchup, poutine, etc. I felt bad that it wasn’t more healthy, but I figured being able to keep something down was better for the baby than not being able to keep anything down at all. I couldn’t even keep that down all the time either, so I was glad that it was high cal food that I could stomach since that was also better for the baby than if I was only absorbing half of a 100 cal dish before throwing up.

@Mrslovebug: I’ve been big on the carbs most of my pregnancy (I’ll be 17w tomorrow). I used to eat eggs for breakfast, now I have oatmeal, cereal, waffles, etc. I’m lovin’ pasta for lunch & dinner. I can go days without eating meat & not think twice about it. I used to have to eat meat in order to feel full. Not anymore. There were a couple of weeks during my pregnancy where pizza gave me wicked bad heartburn & would send me to the bathroom puking. It was a sad time for me but luckily that’s passed!

In the beginning I was only able to eat mashed potatoes and only nibbles, everything else was instant vomiting. I tried adding some peas one day and baby was not happy!
