    I’m 22 weeks now.  From about 6 weeks on I had horrible morning sickness, and food aversions to EVERYTHING.  At 16 weeks I got put on prescription medicine for the naseau, and that helped some.  At this point the food aversions aren’t completely gone, but they are more random I guess.  One day I can’t stand the thought of a tomato sauce, the next its all I want to eat.  It can still be tricky cooking, as I’ll defrost meat in the morning to cook and by dinner time I have no interest in eating it, but its a big improvement over the first trimester.

    OMG.  I want the food aversions to go away, too.  MOST of all, I want the odor aversions to go away.  I don’t really care at this point that all I can eat are frozen waffles, crackers, peanut butter, and the occasional bit of fruit on my better day.  What I DO care about is how every.little.smell makes me start retching.  

    I spend almost all my at-home hours locked away in my bedroom, because the neighbors’ cooking is constantly seeping in to our living room/kitchen area.  I’m in my bedroom now.  I bought vick’s vabor rub to put under my nose to combat the odors–no dice.

    And worst of all…..my sweet, sweet husband’s regular natural odor makes me gag.  Never had a problem before my horrible morning sickness started, but OMG now….  =(  It makes me feel so bad, but I can’t even be near him some days.

    I’m only 9 weeks, so I still have a while to go I think.

     

    @RahlyRah:    tell me when yours goes away and hopefully, I will be there two weeks after.

    I have had the hardest time eating and still do!  (16 weeks tomorrow!)  I basically eat whatever I can stand.  I have to say, it has gotten slightly better.  But I know what you mean- everyday I have my husband bring whatever random thing I can handle. 

    I absolutely hate meat unless it is breaded (like chicken strips) and for the entire first trimester I could not stand fruits and veggies (luckily now I am eating tons every day.)  Hang in there, I think things improve in the second trimester, although I am not going to lie- I still deal with it- it just seems like every day is a little easier. 

    Really though, I have a few things I can stand and that is pretty much what I live on.

    For the most part, the bad ones ended at the end of week 9… but a few lingered into the beginning of the second trimester.

    @BookGirrl:  OMG that happened to me!  My husband smelled repulsive to me for the longest time!  I had to ban all super spiced/ strong smelling foods or he had to sleep on the couch 🙁 because his breathe was SO terrible!

    @cbee:  yeah, I’ve tried explaining to Darling Husband that all spiced foods make him smell disgusting to me but he won’t give them up.  I mean, he’s “cut down”, but he’s Sri Lankan, so he doesn’t understand the concept of eating food that doesn’t have chili powder in it.  And then I’M the mean one when I can’t take his smell.  But I really.can’t.take.it.  I’m not just being a drama queen.  It physically makes me ill.

    To be fair, he’s a very hygenic guy…the two showers a day type of person.  But those spices are like, secreted through the pores, no matter how many times you shower.  =(  Actually, even thinking about it to type this post has made me more nauseous so I’m going to stop typing.

    @BookGirrl:  Oh my gosh, this is terrifying to me.  I just hit 6 weeks today, and have been nervously awaiting nausea/aversions, but yours seems totally out of control!

    @RahlyRah:  Hopefully, but for me it’s totally like ripping off a bandaid.  The more you think about the impending doom, the worse it seems like it’s going to be.  So far, nothing, though!

    The worst of it has ended for me. I’m 14 weeks now and I’ve been much better aversion-wise the past two weeks, and have finally gotten to eating much healthier now instead of whatever I can stomach. Now my only aversion are things very specific that made me throw up or very nauseated before like taco chicken *shudder*

    I’m in my 16th week and most of my food aversions are gone now, but a few of my aversions (to my erstwhile favorite veggies) are lingering still.

    @BookGirrl:  I am in exactly the same boat!  OMG!  Darling Husband works at an organic coop deli and they make all sorts of things from different cultures… not so good for the way he smells!  Get this though- one night it was so bad I could not let him sit next to me on the couch 🙁 He was really upset and we kind of had a fight about it, but the smell of whatever he ate was making me super ill.  Sure enough… two hours later he threw up!  I literally smelled the food poisoning!!!!!!!!!  Now he respects me much more about it.  The next time I smelled him smelling awful he had eaten some sausage and he smelled like a sausage factory if they turned off climate control.  He didn’t get mad after that poisoning episode, so this time he just slept on the couch.

    I am 16 weeks today (yea!!!) and I am doing a lot better.  The worst was 6-10 weeks for me and I really noticed a turn around at 15 weeks, but it got better (a little better) everyday since 10 weeks.  I am finally starting to feel normal, but still- no strong foods for DH!!!  I told him he better not eat anything that will upset me around when baby comes- would that not be the worst??!!!  I NEED him in the delivery room!  Plus, even if I have him brush and listerine, nasty food – like you said- just oozes out the body!  (I hope I didn’t make you feel sick :/)
