Adapted from the popular thread on Chat. Hoping particularly that we can support one another through pregnancy sickness, hyperemesis, varying apetites and food cravings or aversions. Let's try not to be judgy

Breakfast: brown toast and peanut butter, banana
Lunch: jacket potato with cheese and a bit of salad
Snack: several plums
Dinner: lots more salad, few bites of pizza

My appetite is finally coming back so making the most of itgrin

However the last few weeks I survived purely on toast, apples, oranges and ready salted crisps!

BBQ flavour pop chips
A few carrot sticks
A smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel
A sausage roll (not a very nice one, regretted it)
A chocolate brownie
Toast and marmite
The rest of DS's discarded pear

What can I say, the nausea isn't so bad if I keep eating blush

B- cup of tea and some chocolate 🤫 at about 10Am
L- cheese and tomato on toast and some sugar snap peas.
Afternoon snack- bowl of cereal, some sweets and giant choc buttons at the cinema!
T- chicken, avocado and bacon salad. Nachos

So not an amazingly healthy day, but have been busy decorating and have been to the gym and cinema. I am more consistently healthy in the week !

Can I admit something here which I wouldn’t admit in real life

Wednesday I bought a pack of 9 hot cross buns from M&S , I saw them when getting fuel. I had eaten them all by Friday night 😳😳

Cheese omelette, very cheesy pizza, biscuits, milky bar yoghurt, chocolate, Doritos. It's Saturday, 1st day of six nations and I've been in the pub watching OH drink 10 pints. I'm going to eat what I want today!!!

LapsedVeganAcademic Sun 02-Feb-20 03:05:24

Well, 3am and I've just had one of the little choccie muffins that DD1 and DS baked yesterday. Sorry not sorry. It helps the nausea.

flissity Sun 02-Feb-20 10:24:50

@lettersbyowl your day sounds amazing ❤️❤️❤️

@itsemily I think I get the craving or just really really fancy something then eat loads of it for a few days then move onto something else!! It was smokey bacon crisps the other week, so I’ll join you in over doing it with the salt!!!

flissity Sun 02-Feb-20 10:25:56

@LapsedVeganAcademic what a great thread though, makes me feel normal! When I look back, some of my days have been weird, food wise

ProbablyPertunia Sun 02-Feb-20 10:39:58

Ooh I love this! My diet has been horrendous since being pregnant!
Yesterday I had:
- bowl of curiously cinnamon
- super noodles
- some mini cheddars dipped in Philadelphia
- 3 mini chupa chup lollies
- Indian takeaway

I'm 15 weeks pregnant. I've had really strong food aversions since week 6 which has resulted in me eating in weird patterns. For example I'll eat the same thing every day for 5 days and then I'll be totally off that and hàve to find a new meal.

This week it is white rice, chopped cucumber and salmon. All smothered with salad cream. I have this for breakfast and dinner and that's it, maybe some grapes if I'm lucky.

I know I'm eating too much salmon but in a few days I'll be completely off it so I'm just riding it out.

Week 9 I couldn't eat anything but veggie fry ups. Pregnancy is so weird!!

LapsedVeganAcademic Sun 02-Feb-20 13:49:08

Yes I've always found food aversions to be stronger than the cravings. I currently can't face the thought of anything that isn't cards, cheese, fruit or salad

LapsedVeganAcademic Sun 02-Feb-20 13:49:50

*Carbs not card, obviously.

LittleBoyJuly2020 Sun 02-Feb-20 14:08:53

@LapsedVeganAcademic Yeah my food aversions trump any kind of craving. On fact, I don't really get cravings at all, it just seems to be that I need to find foods that are not repulsive to me that day.
It's actually pretty stressful sometimes because I literally have to spend hours thinking about what I can eat, it makes shopping a nightmare!
