In early pregnancy, strange things happen, and if hula hoops is all you can manage, then don't worry smile However, if you can manage to other food, try and ensure it is fresh fruit and veg, to make up for the hula hoops consumption smile

Hope not, I had a major salt and vinegar hula hoop obsession until about 15 weeks. Not touched them since (28+0)!
Seriously though, they're just crisps. So long as you're not piling the weight on don't worry. I
They were all I could eat for several weeks.

I mean today I've manged to have veg and cereal and that and 3 small packs of hula hoops :p there just so yummy

Me too! Hula hoops are great. I think it's because they are salty and starchy so you can keep them down.

I still love hula hoops!

I lived on salt and vinegar walkers and cereal for the first 18 weeks. I couldn't manage hardly anything else. After that I ate a very healthy diet. Just make sure you're taking your vitamins too smile

I'm on pregnacare also I don't have hula hoops everyday but today I
Seem to be craving them I drink alot of milk also would you
Say that's very good during pregnancy?

Moominsarehippos Fri 18-Jan-13 14:29:03

I was taking pregnacare and fish oils too. As well as 'vitamin Hula Hoop'.

lilangel101 Fri 18-Jan-13 14:37:51

I've just bought one that's pregnacare plus omega 3 do I
Take them both at the same ?

I lived on salt and vinegar crisps for about a month. Think I needed the salt. I used to keep a bag by the bed and have 3-4 whenever I would wake up. I'd just say don't finish the bag each time out of habit. Eat to your hunger, not to the manufacturer's dimensions!

Thanks freebuttonbee I've just gone 3 small packs today but
I normally don't eat them everyday smile

Does anyone know if lemonade is ok during pregnancy ?

Moominsarehippos Fri 18-Jan-13 14:58:15

Whatever supplements or 'health' foods you take, check with the doctor first!

FoofFighter Fri 18-Jan-13 18:25:02

why would lemonade not be ok lol?

don't take two lots of Pregnacare, unless I am reading your post wrong?

Sounds like a normal early pregnancy diet to me (rather too familiar iykwim) I was drinking loads of milk, and the salty crisps were so yummy. Your body will let you know what it needs.

Gosh just read this thread and really want hula hoops now!!

Might have to send DH through the snow to the shop now...

Haha! Oh wow I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a salty crisp obsession! I was never a huge crisp eater before but when I got pregnant I became a packet-a-day crisp monster from about 12 weeks (am 38 now!). S&V hula hoops def top of my list too followed by McCoys ridged S&V/king prawn/BBQ rib...yum.

I think it's going to be a hard habit to break after baby's born!!

I was loving crisps until my hypermesis took hold, now I can't even look at them!!
Regarding your vitamin question, is it a pack that has 2 types of tablet? A 'normal' vitamin containing folic acid etc, then a fish oil capsule? If so then yes you take 1 of each, each day. Just make sure the fish oil one is suitable for pregnancy.
