I had so many food aversions it’s easier for me to list what I could eat. LOL. I hope nobody ever has as bad of a pregnancy as I did.

Barbecued meat. The smell alone had me running to the loo.

For me it was the smell of coffee, red meat and sweets.

Oh geez.. I honestly can’t think of anything… Lol! During my first trimester I lived on carbs…. mashed potatoes and everything bagels were my go to! I also drank hot tea to try and soothe my stomach. I don’t think there were any foods I consciously avoided.

White chicken meat. I can still eat chicken thighs or other dark meat chicken, but the thought of chicken breast makes me want to gag.

This is fascinating! Does anyone know what causes this or is it totally random?

Not a mom yet but I could speak for my Mom herself. When she was pregnant with me, she and my Dad were just starting out and lived in a small apartment right next to a strip mall. This strip mall had a bunch of food places and almost next door was Burger King and you can smell the burgers there and all as soon as you stepped out the door. She basically hated the smell of anything fast food and would throw up pretty quick.

I also hate gum being pregnant! I used to be a big gum addict so much so that my husband said I had a real problem haha I honestly cant even look at a piece of gum or smell it now without gagging!

one leading theory is that women are averse to foods which have the highest probability of parasites or other pathogens. Obviously with modern food health standards the likelihood of food poisoning from lettuce is low, but uncooked vegetables and meat for our ancestors were quite risky, especially for the embryo. Food aversions are strongest during first trimester when the embryo is developing critical organs and at its most vulnerable. Which explains why women are averse to foods most threatening to the baby (including alcohol and coffee), and why carbs (less risk of pathogens) are what most women can stand during that time.
Just one of many theories, but seems to make sense to me 🙂

Things cooking in oil. My husband started making shrimp dumplings one night and I had to run upstairs and hide in the bedroom. And water made me want to barf. I usually only drink water, so that was a bummer. I ended up going through a ton of Emergen-C packets to make it palatable.
I’ve seen a bunch of people mention yogurt, which is funny because my first trimester that was one of the only things I wanted to eat! Pregnancy is a strange thing…

I only threw up once during my pregnancy and it was from eggs. Almost eleven years later and just the thought of eggs makes me feel nauseous.

Prawns! ugh. And, I normally eat salad daily, but it was totally unappealing. Especially any store bought dressing. I craved fruit, granola, yogurt, didn’t want dinner. Good luck! Enjoy what you crave.
