It might sound better to be healthy, but I’ve found myself and with many other ladies, you eat what you can stomach so you can maintain yourself during the day. Snacking helps A LOT. Literally don’t go anywhere without a snack in your purse and graze, all day long. If you haven’t seen your doctor yet, ask if there’s anything they can give you to help with the nausea. I’ve been in your shoes, and not too long ago, it’s rough but you’ll get through the days with ease as they pass.

Preach! I feel like I am hungover most days.

I’m  8w4d today, and my MS has been off and on for the last 3 weeks. Some days are worse than others, and usually comes more later in the day than in the morning. Today… so far so good. *knock on wood*

But, I literally have been eating something once an hour it seems. I am sure people at work think I am constantly eating because, well… I am. And nothing seems to satisfy what I need. But, sometimes stuff tastes OK and sometimes not. Or, I’ll think something sounds like a great idea and then when I get to eating it – nope. Gross. Luckily, some fresh veggies and a dip have been great. But fruit (which I love) has been OK to eat.

I haven’t gained much weight from this eating, but I have also been able to workout (more low impact than what I was doing), so maybe that has helped. Regardless, I am HUGELY bloated and feel like eating just makes it worse – even with the consumption of water. So weird.

Mac and Cheese has been my go-to lunch for the last week, and will continue. It hits the spot. Easy Mac… bring it on! I also stocked up some ginger ale, and have that most nights before bed, like a can, or half a can. Dry cereal has helped too. Today is Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and as soon as I started feeling weird, I’ll eat some.

Exactly what you’ve described is what I went through! I was never physically ill, but I felt nausious constantly, and the only thing that made me feel better was to eat, and the only thing that sounded good was carbs.  At least for me, once the “morning” sickness passed (for me it lasted 3-4 weeks) what sounded good to me changed, and I’ve been able to go back to somewhat normal eating habits.  Try not to get too caught up in it, and hopefully things will slowly go back to normal once the feeling of being ill passes… Good luck!

lucygirl1:  16 prunes is a ton! I just buy the juice – all you need to drink is 4-6 ounces, that’s not even a glass. 

Yesterday I had a Chick Fil A sandwich for lunch. Skipped the fries, at least! I haven’t been inside a fast food restaurant for at least 5 years.

I’m 11 weeks and have lost 6lbs so far, and I only think it’s because I am not drinking anymore because I have never been much of a sweets or junk food eater. Morning sickness hasn’t been that bad until this last week, but my food aversions have been rediculous since week 6. I can’t stand meat, so most of my meals are some sort of fruit/carbs/cheese/veggies. I got the same advice from my doctors that I saw other women get, eat what you can and as much as you feel comfortable eating. The most important part is just getting food in your body this first trimester.

I was the same… Basically had several week hangover. I packed healthy snacks and ate all day, rarely having an actual meal.  I’d have a batch of carrots, clementines, crackers and similar things with me wherever I went.  It went from 6-11 weeks. Hope you feel better soon!

lucygirl1:  don’t stress! These few weeks are tough!  I was in the same boat (6w on the dot, eating all day, strayed from my normally healthy diet). My doctor told me that this will end and to do what feels right for my body.  You’ll feel better soon enough and can get back to your routine. I also found that staying super hydrated and sucking on hard candies or chewing gum  helped a lot between meals.  If too much water is grossing you out, try some gator are or juice – I watered mine down to cut the sugar. Also, while it felt I possible in the first few weeks of fealing sick, once I just made myself exercise, I felt better. Walks on lunch break, stretching or yoga before bed,  anything really helped once I got past the psychological feeling that I couldn’t do it.  Also.. sleep!! Even if its a ton right now.  Your body needs it- creating a human is hard work! 🙂 Don’t stress about the scale either.  Like I said, once you feel better and get back to your routine, you’ll have time to get the numbers back in order.
