Maybe ask grandma to share her recipes? And if she isn’t willing to do that, she could send the dry/nonperishable components (like the spices) pre-mixed in the mail with instructions on finishing the job?

Sorry I can’t be of more help! Have you tried eating ginger root? It’s supposed to help with nausea.

I was sick the whole time with my daughter.  I was told to drink ginger ale & snack on ginger snaps.  The ginger ale helped a bit, but could never bring myself to have the stomach for the snaps.

eocenia:  It varied daily whn I was pregnant so I would eat whatever I felt like I could keep down.  It was usually plain saltines, plain pasta, brown rice, and handfuls of Special K Strawberry cereal.  I still lost 10 pounds in two weeks due to the nausea.  Try not to mix fluids with solids, only eat one or the other at a sitting.

P.S. Now would be a great time for your husband to learn how to make easy stuff like casseroles and pasta dishes.  A lot of times the problem is that guys lack confidence in the kitchen.  Give him a few super easy recipes (with only a few ingredients and that won’t create too many dishes) and tell him how great they are and how much you appreciate him cooking for you.  Or if he’s a griller have him grill up a bunch of chicken breasts at he beginning of the week then all he has to do is add different sauces and veggies or slice it up and serve it over rice or salad.

I ate alot of carbs my first trimester, like crackers, bread and maybe plain noodles if I had the energy to make them.  I basically didn’t wany any meat or any sort of savory food because I’d get acid reflux.  Carbs, sprite, ginger chew candies, fruit, and lifesavers.  That was my diet!

eocenia:  About you wanting to try some ginger ale- Get Vernors (should be available in Canada), it’s much less sweet than Canada Dry, etc. I won’t drink anything but Vernors!

eocenia:  So sorry you’re sick! I know exactly what you’re going through! I’m in the middle of it now! I usually can keep down plain rice. That seems to be my go-to right now. Also, peanut butter sandwiches have been ok. I usually take a couple to work with me. If I keep eating a little here and a little there it seems to help a little.

eocenia:  Haha that’s exactly what I’ve bene thinking! If I didn’t know it was because I’m pregnant I would go crazy! Fruits have been pretty good for me too! Actually pears have been better than any other fruit. I think the flavor is subtle enough to be ok:)

eocenia:  I feel your pain… I had MS from week 6-14 and it was not fun. DH also isn’t really a big cook and I had ZERO energy. I ate a lot of cereal, toast with peanut butter, or PB&J sandwiches, grilled cheese, ritz crackers (wow I ate a lot of carbs! haha), apples cut up into small bites, bananas. Even though I love meat and raw veggies, even the thought of either of those things made me feel sick.

Peanut Butter and Jelly for breakfast, lunch, dinner and during the night. I also ate a lot of grapes and carrots. It helped because I could graze on them while sitting at my desk over a few hours. I also ate a lot of cereal, almond trail mix, granola bars, and bagels with cream cheese.

Mostly, I just listened to my cravings. One day I was dying for pizza, so I had pizza. The next day the thought of pizza made me ill. But honestly, I just ate anything that popped into my mind that sounded relatively appealing.
