I have had exactly the same both pregnancies. The first time I could cope with mints but this time I've lived on baked potatoes with a tiny bit of cheese and beans for protein that I could just about bear.
AT 16 weeks I've got a rotton appetite but can stomach most things again.
First couple of months, I lived on bread, boiled rice, jacket potatoes and rice krispies....boring, but all I could stomach. At 12 weeks, I'm just starting to be interested in fruit, veg and things with a vague amount of taste. Gone right off pasta though, urgghh the slimeyness of it.
I couldn't either this time. This baby is going to come out looking like a baked potato!!
Baby will get the calories whatever only you will suffer . I took pregnacare while it lasted so at least I felt a bit better about my vitamin stores but most mornings it made me gag so I took it at dinner (with the potato .
It probably doesn't help you much just now but THIS WILL PASS. Honest! Keep to the bland stuff for now - you'll find though that your tastes and appetite WILL change though and your body will be able to cope with different flavours etc, eventually. I found watery fruit like berries, melon and strawberries a total life-saver (but that was at a later stage)
I do remember the bland-food-only phase though.
*shudders at the memory of permanent nausea*
Oh - and I heartily recommend rice cakes with a wee bit of butter and salt. Sesame ricecakes.
Sympathies - I was very similar when pg with dd. It lasted from about 6 to 13 weeks. All I could stomach were bagels, toast, rice, cereal - stuff that had little flavour. One particularly bad week (week 10 I think) all I ate more or less was Mullerice! I also had lots of milkshakes - made with nesquick but REALLY weak!
Baby came out a massive 10lb 1oz so I beleive what they say about the Mum suffering not the baby!
I too took pronatal tabs right through just to make sure I was getting my vitamins
I sympathise - had exactly the same problem, couldn't stomach any food with flavour. I was working at a Michelin starred Chinese restaurant when I was first pregnant and we could have anything we wanted off the menu. I'll never forget the evil look coming from the head chef everytime I asked for 'just plain boiled rice please'
To make things worse, dp is also a chef and I kept requesting dinner with 'absolutely no flavour'!! Thankfully those days have passed - week 15 was when my appetite came back and the sickness disappeared. It will get better I promise
