I have decided I'm a little weird for this but a can of beans is the only thing that I can stomach. Everything I try to eat I turn my nose up at but if I eat beans I seem to be fine. Is this normal? X

It's normal, especially in the first trimester... I remember my mum living on them for most of her pregnancy with my brother. Baked beans are surprisingly high in iron, too, which pregnant women need masses of.

Ah that's ok then I'm on first pregnancy so it's all new to me

I lived on rice and toast for first trimester. My midwife said it doesn't matter what you eat, as long as you eat something you can keep down and keep fluid intake high.

At least beans are fairly nutritious... I spent weeks eating pretty much just dairylea hmm
