@firsttimemom: Aww, I bet you’ll like it again after the baby comes. Just make tea and cocoa in the meantime. πŸ™‚

Aw it’s not your fault, the baby probably doesn’t like coffee. I’m sure you’ll use it later.

Question though, is caffeine not on the list of “banned” foods for pregnancy? I’ve never been pregnant but it seems like something they’d tell you not to ingest anyway?

I had a big aversion to coffee too even though I was tired all the time.  I think it’ll get better after pregnancy and your coffee maker will still be thereWink.  Now I can tolerate the taste (probably started to tolerate it around 22 weeks) but I still don’t want to drink a lot of caffeine so my husband makes delicious coffee in the morning (mixes white chocolate chips into it and tops it with frothy milk) and I’ll have a couple sips of his.  It makes me happy but I’m done after 2 or 3 sips.

Don’t feel bad! I once read a study that women who have an aversion to the smell of coffee during pregnancy have a lower rate of miscarriage. I’m also confident you will love it again after the baby is born.

This happened to FMIL too back when she was having FI. She was a full-blown coffee addict before she was pregnant, but during the pregnancy you couldn’t pay her to get near the stuff.

Oh do I understand!

I love popcorn. I eat it all the time. My husband was so excited about his gift one year and for my birthday he got me an airpopper, a HUGE thing of popcorn kernnels, and a variety of seasoning salts.

1 week before my birthday I had to have a tooth pulled and I couldn’t use the machine for WEEKS!  He felt bad because it was all he had for me and the timing was terrible. He didn’t know I was about to lose a tooth.

I tell you this just to make you giggle. πŸ™‚  You are not alone

BUT remember….when that baby is born…LORD will you need some coffee! πŸ™‚ And it it’s such a good machine, it was LAST. Just remind him that as a new parent, you will take him up on his offer to make you coffee…to the point that he is SICK of making you coffee!  LOL!!! πŸ™‚

Don’t feel bad. If you are honest with him, he will understand. It’s not a time-sensative gift…so it is not going to waste

Just keep reminding him and yourself how nice it will be to make a very quick cup of coffee when the baby is up in the middle of the night for no reason!

I drank coffee while I was pregnant but oh lord did my baby hate it while I was breastfeeding. It was the ONLY thing that made her grumpy and irritable and as soon as I cut it out her mood improved considerably!
