orange juice helped me a lot too! also, peanut butter on whole wheat bread. by the second trimester i could’ve eaten pho (vietnamese beef noodle soup) every day. i wasn’t even a huge meat eater before becoming pregnant but craved beef and meat in general so much! (later found out that i had a slight iron deficiency, i think my body was trying to tell me something. our bodies are amazing!)

I lived on turkey sandwiches for a few weeks; it was all I could eat without immediately puking.   Later on, I could usually keep down liquids, so stuff like milkshakes, smoothies, etc… were nice.

Honey Nut Cheerios. They are my constant companion because I can eat a few when my tummy says “eat now, or I’ll make you throw up” but it doesn’t require the commitment of a meal.

And I second peanut butter on wheat bread. I’ve brought a 1/2 sandwich of that to work the last 2 days.

The other day Cheddar and Sour Cream potato chips were calling my name. I’m just glad I got a 2 serving bag, instead of the family size bag, because I ate the whole thing and it was SOOOOOOOO good.

Frosted Mini Wheats! Baked potatoes and oatmeal are my staples, as well. Also, I love Pirate’s Booty.

Fruit juices, fruits, bagels and cream cheese and mac n’ cheese was all I could tolerate when I was in my first trimester.

Strangely enough it was McDonalds single cheeseburgers.  I couldn’t think of anything I wanted to eat except for that cheeseburger.  Darling Husband made burgers at home one night and I couldn’t eat it because it wasn’t thin like McDonalds!

Orange juice and plain toast (not even butter or margarine) were my livelihood during my 1st trmester.

Apples.  Apple juice, apple sauce and plain apples.  Later on I was able to graduate to plain baked potatoes, but for weeks and weeks I ate apples like they were going out of style.

I can’t believe some of you ladies could do OJ–that made me throw up immediately. I had a really rough first tri and lived on very plain, bland things like corn chex cereal, bagels and cream cheese, chicken noodle soup, apple sauce, mashed potatoes and turkey and sparkling water. I couldn’t (still can’t really) drink still water, so I’d mix a little cranberry juice into it. I couldn’t do anything too sweet or salty. Although, I found really cold things like popsicles were tolerable and would settle my stomach for a while, so I’d eat one of those right before or after a meal to help it settle.

I’m only 8 weeks, and have been fortunate enough to not have been getting sick.  I will feel nauseaous or just a little uneasy if I don’t keep snacking.  I find that oranges (and other fruits), string cheese, pasta/noodles, soup, and any kind of starchy foods make me feel better.  I always regret it if I eat too big of meals because I get extremely bloated and uncomfortable, so I try to snack constantly.

Popsicles – but only the all natural ones fruit ones because I could taste the fake sugar in the other kind (yes, I’m a weirdo).  And of course gingerale and crackers.  I swear those frozen fruit bars were the only things I would want/could keep down some days.

Luna Bars and peach frozen yogurt.  Sierra Mist and lemon lime Gatoraide were life savers too.

Bagels with peanut butter is the only way I can start my day now. Oddly enough, my MS liked cream based soups best, so that is usually my lunch, and for dinner I am all over potatoes (mashed or baked), sometimes I can stomach meat, sometimes not so much. The only meat that semi-consistantly stays down~ish is chicken (usually baked chicken breasts with no sauce or seasoning).

Snack wise, soda crackers and arrowroot cookies are my go-to’s
