I am 10 weeks with DC3. I fancy nothing. I haven't been sick and I am not too bad with MS, but nothing appeals to me. I have gone off most things I loved (e.g. pop chips, meat, pizza, pretty much any main meal). I am doing the Ocado and I need to order something because last week I ordered nothing and now I am feeling very very sick for having an empty stomach (going to the grocery store is out of the question). I am gluten free. Suggestions?

Ice lollies sometimes they are all I can manage? Crackers? Jelly? Gingernuts?

I ate fruit for the first 13 weeks of my pregnancy..

Now all I want is limes.. Cut into slices and eaten..... I'm aware this might not inspire you!

Frozen blueberries? Petit filious? I liked slices of green apple and babybel for a while. Popcorn? Gluten free pasta and cheese? Beans on gluten free toast?

Ooh yes crunchy apple, sliced, with lumps of mature cheddar

I'm all about the juice right now. Im finding fruit and plain yoghurt nice too.

Fruit / juice seems to help me. Some breakfast cereals are going down okay for me. May be worth a try?

Have you tried the small individual bags of melon/soft fruits and grapes etc,you are not throwing too much away if you change your mind and don't eat them what about water biscuits with a few slices of banana/mango ?

MorelloKiss Sat 08-Feb-14 15:11:24

I could only manage cheddar and water biscuits for a few weeks at the beginning.

Crispy seaweed, think the salty sweetness helped to cover up horrible pregnancy nausea/taste. OrHowever about dairy - yoghurts etc.

DownstairsMixUp Sat 08-Feb-14 15:19:47

I'm 10 weeks to. Crisps, cereal and nibbles of chocolate seem to be what I manage best.

allisgood1 Sat 08-Feb-14 15:20:35

Good suggestions, thanks. I probably should be eating a hell of a lot more fruit so will start with that.

allisgood1 Sat 08-Feb-14 15:21:15

Downstairs, I am also living on a diet of crisps.

DownstairsMixUp Sat 08-Feb-14 15:23:51

Wholewheat crackers with some cheese on them have been helping me to all least you get some fat/calories in the cheese, better than nothing! I used to love crumpets/toast with a coffee but now can't face it, or bacon. Cereal and tea all the way!

ScarlettMantleplume Sat 08-Feb-14 15:26:34

Gingernuts, crackers with cheese. Gerkhins.

I loved potato waffles with refried beans when I was feeling pg + yucky.

I started out this pregnancy with an intention to be really healthy. However my current goal is anything that doesn't make me want to throw up, so the goalposts have moved somewhat. blush To be honest though my MS started really early on this pregnancy, and I'm fed up now and nutrition has just gone out the window in favour of anything I actually want to eat / can keep down. Sometimes dry (I.E, slightly overcooked so they are not greasy) ovenchips etc are all that seems to go down okay. That and toast and dry biscuits. But yes I do find fruit and some breakfast cereals are going down okay too. Be wary of anything greasy or rich as these can backfire quite spectacularly. DH very kindly bought me a macaroni cheese meal to take to work the other day knowing it is normally a favour of mine, unfortunately 2 mouthfuls in I had to go throw up in the work staff toilet.

I seem to be obsessed with chicken nuggetsgrin

KatharineClover Sat 08-Feb-14 16:46:07

Toast and butter, bagel and cream cheese, and digestive biscuits have been my friends! Also nice juicy sultanas as I can nibble a couple at a time to keep the nausea at bay. I now fancy fruit again (after a few weeks of not being able to think of it) so I've put pineapple and blueberries on my order as that's my favourite! I'm also finding online shopping hard if I do it at the wrong time I can't look at the photos without feeling ill and we end up with random shopping! X

andadietcoke Sat 08-Feb-14 16:49:45

I lived off breakfast biscuits. They were great to have in my handbag whenever I felt sick as they're individually wrapped. Ooh and balsamic vinegar and sea salt kettle chips.

I went off of chocolate in the last pregnancy.

Just get thru it, you will, somehow... in 6 weeks you'll be whinging about getting fat & snacking constantly on anything (yes Officemate, I mean you)

firstbaby01 Sat 08-Feb-14 21:37:42

coco pops were all that i was able to stomach for about a week! i crave them all the time now smile and Shreddies and those kellogs clustors like the ones in the free sample in the Emma's diary goodie bag.

Legalbaby79 Sat 08-Feb-14 21:39:19

Potatoe waffles, cheese, apples ( made MS bearable) orange juice and fizzy water .... Frozen yoghurt

Chinese noodle or wonton type soups, more broth than anything else. Anything crisp and fresh, nothing greasy or particularly spicy, a pain for me as I love spicy food. Surprisingly enough, and aware of the caveats, peanut butter on toast was all I could stomach for weeks.
