Are those the only foods offered at the reception, or are there some options like vegetables and well-cooked meats?  

At 10w 5d and still nauseous all the time, I’d carb up in the morning.  For lunch, lunchmeat is ok if heated to steaming– could you microwave a sandwich?  As far as dinner, if there are some other options as I mentioned above, eat lots of those.  I’d stuff my purse with some protein bars, nuts, etc in order to have a backup as well.

Good luck!

@oldmatron:  Just say that you are on a new birth control so the nausea is really bad as you are still trying to adjust. The ask if she would mind you bringing your own food so that you can avoid any chance of heaving during the wedding.

@oldmatron:  I would say that I’m testing for food allergies and have a very small selection of things I can eat without throwing the tests off. lol  or you’re on medication that makes you nauseaus and processed foods seem to make it worse. or bring it in your purse and try to just be very sneaky about it.

@oldmatron:  I would talk to the bride.  I would hope that she would understand.  Especially given the fact that you have tried for a while to concieve.  Myself personally, I would never be offended if a friend was pregnant and needed to snack to keep from getting sick….or be offended that you were not able to eat the foods provided. Perhaps she could keep this quiet that you are expecting?


Congratualtions on the pregnancy!!  Children are the best blessing any of us could ever ask for.

Can you pack some snacks and eat them discreetly? Unless everyone is literally standing around watching each other eat, I don’t think people will notice that you haven’t touched the small plates. In addition, perhaps they’ll serve crackers/crostinis which are typical served with cheese/meat and worse to worse, you can nibble on those.
