Steak-based revelation

Just wanted to share in case this helps anyone else. I'm around 8 and a half weeks pregnant and have been feeling really rough for the last couple of weeks with round-the-clock nausea and an aversion to most foods. Yesterday I got it into my head that I wanted a steak so DP duly accompanied me to a restaurant where I could order one. Even on the way there, I thought we would have to turn back as I felt so sickly but managed to stagger through the doors, sit down and order. Anyway, I went for a fillet steak with a side order of spinach, (had to eat little bits with the steak to disguise the taste) and within a few minutes of eating, I felt like a new woman! It lasted all evening and even this morning, I feel more like my old self and have been able to stomach fruit, muesli and toast for breakfast. I don't want to get too addicted to red meat, (I barely eat it usually), but I am now a definite convert to steak. Really hope it works for others x

Mmm you've got me wanting a big, bloody steak with loads of green veggies now! envy

Glad you feel better though, your body has obviously got exactly what it was needing.

hmm I'm 14 weeks and I've been off meat unless it's fake/junk food since about 5 weeks. Will have to see if I could get a steak down me!

Glad it worked for you, but just reading your post made me want to puke. Meat is the last thing that would help my nausea! <and before pregnancy I ate far too much meat!>

I think it's more that it's what you needed and therefore it made you feel better. Sounds delicious though!

hah...wait until it's a jar of beetroot a day, and drinking the vinegar out of the jar, grin

hope that's the last of the queasiness for you! it really is rotten.

Thanks for the kind wishes, folks. Sadly nausea has returned and I'm assuming it probably wouldn't be a good idea to have a steak EVERY day! However I'm keen as mustard on the processed cheese suggestion and have sent DP out with instructions to secure Dairylea slices at any cost. Feel like such a cliche of a pregnant woman all of a sudden smile

Feeling your pain OP. I'm 8w5d and nauseous as hell. DP cooked me steak last night too but I could barely touch it. I can only eat small mouthfulls of food, anything big makes me gag <insert your own joke here> Let's see what I manage for tea tonight!
