@PatientBee:  I had to quit eating oatmeal in the first tri, and I still can’t eat it (31 week pregnant right now).

I also put off chicken and brocolli for quite a few months. I have started to eat chicken again, but I can only handle it in small doses. Brocolli is still pretty difficult for me (its mostly the smell) but I think I have eaten it one or two times.

I haven’t had meat sinceI found out I was pregnant. I actually can’t even stand the smell. After I make dinner for my DH I have to stay in our room or I gag bc of the smell.

At first fruits and veggies made me sick but luckily I can eat that again. All I eat now is eggs and salads and lots of fruit.

@PatientBee:  It’s kind of funny actually. At home I cannot stand the smell of or eating fried potatoes. But when we go out the first thing I want is french fries. It must be the spices on the potatoes at home.

My first trimester I didn’t want to have anything to do with meat or veggies. I ate eggs, mac n cheese, lot’s of pasta, whatever sounded good.

Second trimester I don’t have any food aversions at all and eat as normal

In the first trimester I had aversions to cilantro, avacados, leafy greens, and sometimes meat. My love for avacados still hasn’t returned but I’m at 20 weeks now and the aversions have pretty much gone away.

Onions is the only thing I can’t stand to eat/smell now.


I didn’t really have specific food aversions at all, just overall general aversion to food in general in the first trimester.  Like, nothing sounded or tasted good. I’d be hungry but completely unable to think of anything I’d actually want to eat.  I ate a lot of french fries in my first trimester haha.

I only ate carbs my first trimester. 

Chicken was the most off putting thing I could have even imagined.

Shrimps make me feel sick. And the mere photo of a runny egg yolk made me throw up the other day.

I couldn’t even look at salads or hummus in the first tri. That lasted for several weeks, but since then I’ve been back to normal. 35w1d today. 

I do still randomly get those times when I’m really hungry and I want to eat SOMETHING, but nothing sounds particularly good. But those instances are nothing like the true aversions I had in the beginning!

@PatientBee:  I have had a food aversion to pretty much everything at this point. Food and I haven’t gotten along these past 14 weeks. While this baby craves nothing but healthy things I got somewhat limited for a while as I never knew what I would or wouldn’t be able to eat.

For a while I wanted apple sauce all the time. One day I brought some to work for an afternoon snack and the moment I took that first bite I felt the need to vomit. I put the lid back on and back into my lunch bag it went, never to be eaten again. I had a serious aversion to cheese a few weeks ago. Any cheese would make me gag and DH had the nerve to bring home a pizza, I had to leave the room.

I am still dealing with aversions to chicken (not going to happen) and yogurt.

I’m not even pregnant but I have serious food aversions. I have a very bad stomache issues which means I can only eat a very limited amount of things.The thought of certain foods make me gag sometimes. I don’t know how I’m ever going to survive being pregnant!!!

Everything. I only eat because my hubby makes me. Everything tastes disgusting. Dr said I’ll get a feeding tube if I don’t gain something by 13 weeks and honestly it doesn’t even scare me that much because then I won’t have to force myself to eat. lol.
