Healthy eating was extremely easy for the fist 6-8 weeks of my pregnancy. The only foods my body wanted were fruits, veggies, and meat. The last thing I wanted was sugar!
One day I woke up and that all changed! Pregnancy hormones are a strange thing. There really is no reasoning behind cravings or food aversions. Just the thought of veggies now made me nauseas. Cooked broccoli and carrots were the worst! Seafood also found itself on the “can’t eat” list. Strangely enough, so did blueberries. Just the sweet smell of blueberries made me cringe.
I never really experienced morning sickness. There were a few weeks where I didn’t feel great from about lunchtime until after dinner. No matter how hungry I was, I didn’t want to eat. Knowing how much growing our tiny baby was doing, I forced myself to eat as much as I could.
The queasiness towards food finally started to taper off around 10-11 weeks. There still isn’t any food I really just have to have. But I can manage to eat a meal without having to sip gingerale.
