@MsJ2theZ:  Potatoes, rice, cereal (Special K was my favorite), those dreaded crackers, and ginger chews.  All forms of meat, fruit, and veggies couldn’t be looked at or smelled, much less eaten.

Try to keep the prenatal vitamins down and don’t worry, the baby will take what they need from what you keep down.  You can worry more about making healthy meals when the MS passes.

Luckily I haven’t thrown up but one time (Cajun fries *sad face*)… The only thing that seems appealing to me right now is carbs too!! Ugh! Normally I eat like 30-35% of my calories from carbs but now, ha!

I have been craving Honey Nut Cheerios and Cheese-its… And PB&J’s… And POTATOES – omg baked potatoes!! Or fries!! Not Cajun tho lol!

fruits, veggies, and meat are really really unappealing but I try to force myself to have SOME balance….

I am 7w2d right now

@beachbride1216:  I thought I was the only one!! I usually eat mostly fruits and veggies but seriously cannot do it right now. Salad is my favorite thing ever and I gag just seeing lettuce. I tried to eat steak last week and no joke I spit it on the plate. It tasted just like biting into a cow would…

ETA: my eat list is fries, hummus, Melba toast, oatmeal, Wendy’s jr bacon cheeseburgers, pasta, rolls

@MsJ2theZ:  poor thing! I am with you, have had bad MS and food aversions since week 6 ( I am 11 now). Pretty much everything sounds gross and makes me gag, especially all meat and most veggies. We havent used our oven in like a month because I cant stand the smell of anything cooking. I have been living on apples, juice, greek yogurt (when I can choke it down), low fat string cheese, trail mix, and CARBS (usually with cheese). I pretty much only want to eat grilled cheese, cheese fries, etc. I am trying to get some healthy food in there, but it is hard. Don’t worry too much, just eat what you can and what sounds good and take your vitamin. My doctor assured me that the baby would be just fine.

I was naseaus from weeks 6-17. I basically lives on bagels with cream cheese (that I forced myself to eat) and Mac and cheese. I also ate saltines throughout the night.

burgers, fries, bagels, popsicles or anything cold and creamy on my tummy. Basically anything that isn’t healthy I can eat. Everything else, not so much. Doctor said I was fine as long as taking a prenatal. I was pleasantly suprised I’ve only gained a pound since my last appointment. I’ve been scared to weigh myself lately and figured I gained 10 even with 3 weeks to go of my first trimester. I just want to be reasonable and not gain a crap load more weight than needed just because I’m pregnant. With this nausea though it’s hard to worry about that.

@MsJ2theZ:  Mashed potatoes have been great for me. The nausea is going away a bit for me (I’m 10 weeks today), but there’s still a lot that doesn’t sound good. I’ve been getting better about forcing myself to eat, though. The past few days I’ve been LOVING left over lasagna. 🙂

@PacificMrs:  I wish my MS was going away. I want to cry all day long. It’s absolute misery.

This sounds crazy but chewing gum after I ate a small meal helped me keep things down.  I read that chewing gum helps some people after eating because it aids digestion by stimulating your gastric juices. I don’t know if that’s truly the why but it helped me to be able to eat more healthy food. Hang in there, it seems difficult to believe but you will feel better around week 13. My gastric issues (nausea, heartburn, indigestion) were so bad I was worried that I was going to have an aversion to all food forever. During week 13 it was like a light switch went on and it was so much better.  I’m still wary of food, I only eat small quantities at a time of good quality, healthy food but I guess that would be a good thing if that becomes a habit for life! Hope that helps, best wishes!
