Being pregnant means watching what you eat and MS usually limits what you can have. After bubs are born what would you all eat?

Ham and mashed egg roll! I'm going to make sure I've got one ready to go in my hospital room fridge lol.
What about you araluan?

A stinky mouldy salami, a coppa/olive/Brie roll, oysters natural, an outrageous bottle of champagne, and some gooey taleggio.

Sushi!  I'm going to get hubby to bring me some in to hospital.  

Smoked salmon - I'll put it on pizza (with brie, capers and red onion) or pasta because then its heated, but it loses its texture when it cooks.  I'll do the same with salami or other deli meats too.

And Maccas shakes.  I hadn't had one for years before I got pregnant with DS but I craved vanilla shakes so bad, and I'd have one every other day for months after DS was born.  I'm really craving the honeycomb and toffee ones.

And bubbly/red wine.  We bought a really nice bottle of red before our wedding to drink on our first anniversary but were pregnant with DS by then.  So we opened it the night we came home and had a glass each.  Think we'll do the same this time, it was such a nice relaxing thing to do.

Wildence - why can't you have cooked seafood and mornay oysters?

You reminded me of one more - cold prawns.  I could really go some cold cooked prawns and thousand island dressing to dip.

I'm looking forward to not taking vitamins anymore, I don't do well with swallowing tablets at the best of times but throw in the nausea and its just blurgh...

Oh, and when I can I will take a tall glass, fill with ice, splash in some Bombay Saphire, a squeeze of lime and a dash of tonic...

Sushi. Our first meal once we leave hospital will be the local sushi train.

Zanbam - I'm taking far less tablets now then when TTC!  We were trying to sway for a girl so I was taking large cranberry tablets, 3 x large calcium and magnesium tablets, one little folic acid tablet and up to 30 equal sweetner tablets a day.   blink.gif

Also, you have good taste in gin.  We have a bottle of Bombay Sapphire East that I suspect hubby will finish off before I am able to have more than the odd sip of his

#17 Zanbam

Wow Chaton[b] that is a lot of pills! 30 equals a day, I had no idea they could help gender sway (I admit though I haven't looked into swaying). Did you also eat certain foods? And I have heard different positions for conception and different times for trying to catch the egg can play a part.

I have never heard of Bombay Sapphire east! I'll have to look into it...  biggrin.gif

Sushi.

Oh so much sushi.

It's ALL I want to eat at the moment, and I'm going to Japan in a few weeks and can't have any yet!

There is so much stuff that I can't or don't eat that there isn't really much I'm missing out on.
