You know you're pregnant when

* all you can stomach is chicken broth with rice noodles and brownies.
* dinner prep is filled with gaging and your child asking "OK Mommy?"
*while holding your breath looking in the fridge you remember that the baby probably needs that oxygen.
* even the thought of ANY kind of meat cooked or raw (even just reading it in the recipe title) is just about enough to make you start gagging.
* your family has gratefully eaten pasta for three days in a row.

If y'all have some yummy vegetarian type dishes that you'd like to share with me I'd greatly appreciate them!!

Not that I'm complaining, just grateful to be feeling this way at all!

I was the same way with meat. And so many other foods.. I worried about getting enough protien even.
After a while I could stomach grocery store chicken nuggets, because they just barely resemble meat!

Oh I hear you! Vegetarian Times magazine has some awesome recipes. I have an extra one from Dec/Jan I think if you'd like me to send it to you... you can email me your address at jsprecourt@yahoo.com . I'll also look up some more recipes for you- we just switched to eating vegetarian and I have some great new recipes!

Hope you are feeling better soon. But what a great reason to be sick :)

I'm not having any problems with meat, but I did the same thing going into the frigde. Held my breath and then wondered if it was bad for the baby! LOL. I've heard that the more morning sickness, the healthier the baby...but then I also read that 1/2 of women don't get morning sickness. Hope these next few weeks pass quickly!

Oh my. I never had much sickness, (sorry)chewing mint or cinammon gum always helped settle my stomach.

Bean soup is a great thing though!

What is it with the meat? I was the same way. I would leave the house so my hubby could cook himself something. I just couldn't, and after a week the man needed some meat!

Chicken broth and brownies -- HA!

I was like this with Mark. My tolerance of foods changed daily.

Heaven Sent said...

The thought of chicken at all made me want to gag with Emma -- but that was it. The good news is that brownies makes everything better. Enjoy! :o)

Yes
Yes
and Yes
I have totally been there.

All I could eat with my last one was tomato sandwiches. And my sense of smell could detect anything else at 2 miles. But it was worth it all! This too will pass...

Can I add one to this list?

You know you're pregnant when...you read a post about food aversions and you feel like puking yourself! Hey, that's me! This post almost did me in. LOL

Sorry you're feeling sick. It's the pits, isn't it!!
