I haven't had any cravings at this stage, but my goodness, my body knows exactly what it DOESN'T want original.gif I used to love Asian food, whether Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Chinese, you name it, I loved it, and the spicier the better... Now even reading the words lemongrass or curry turn my stomach! I find it incredible that my tastes could have changed so distinctly this early on! Would love to hear what others have experienced in this area!

All my favourite junk just tastes like vomit now..  



As for cravings so far its been asian greens and anything crunchy.



I am amazed at how much my diet has changed.  This is new for me as my past pregnancies i have had hyperemesis and eating anything was a challenge.


I am also trying very hard to eat very healthy as if i gain a few more kilo's before my 25th week i get labeled high risk and sent aware from home for the birth.  So trying to ignore the more unhealthy cravings..

Many foods I can't even type or say without gagging so I can't go into the major ones but I'm off coffee,tea, pasta, lamb, peanut butter, Vegemite, most mains I would eat and apples.  Can't stand the site of alcohol which makes not drinking it easy!

Loving non- dairy icy smoothies for breaky, sweets and chocolate, noodles, baked potatoes, Mexican, green curry only, cordial.

And I can't stop thinking about macoroni cheese packet pasta, but I'm off gluten and it's potentially a contributing factor to my previous miscarriages it's an absolute no go!

I can't stand eggs at the moment.  They smell rotten.   sick.gif

I had to do some baking the other day, and I had to get DH to smell the eggs for me before I added them to the mix.  I needed his assurance they weren't rotten, because they smelled it to me.  (I didn't tell him, but I actually threw out three eggs because I thought they were rotten, before I thought of asking him).  blush.gif

As I am not too far at the moment the smell of foods is not too bad.

I am craving savory things (like I have with most my pregnancies)  Cheezels seems to be on my list every pregnancy but this time around I am really loving eggs.  

As I said this will probley change very soon as I am only around 5 weeks.  I can all ready feel the nausia come and go so fingers crossed I don't end up with HG sick.gif
(I had HG with my first two pregnancies)

I've been craving healthy food, mostly fruits. I've been having at least one apple and banana daily, it's one of the few things that doesn't make me feel sick. And salada's. I use to eat so much junk, especially chocolate and now I eat very little.

I wish what I wanted was healthy! I am trying to be good by eating well and going to the gym, but then I discover something like the new Cornetto Enigma and eat two of them in a row (quite possibly the most delicious thing to ever enter my mouth though so worth every calorie!!!) Ah well, will just keep coming back to the good stuff and hope it all balances out!

Hehe, I found the only things I could eat at uni, that weren't listeria foods (salad bar etc) were meat pies! They were so heavy they made me sick after a while, and I used to scoff one with no problems.

Last night I gave the boys nachos, and I had a ham cheese and tomato sandwich, which I ate roughly 2/3 of. When I left it on the coffee table to get a drink, I came back and it was gone, and so was the dog. Sigh... I wasn't going to finish it anyway.

I hope I'm getting enough nutrients, because I can't eat big meals, even when I'm insanely hungry.

With DS I had no food cravings just aversions.... I wasn't even interested in chocolate!! This time around I love my sweets and am craving meat and junk food. I'm likely gonna put on so much weight in the 1st trimester, they are gonna put me on some healthy diet mad.gif
You know people have told me that when you are carrying a boy you prefer savoury and with girls you prefer sweet. Definitely proved true with my son. Hopefully it is a girl this time.

Last week salt and vinegar chips were my friend. This week kiwi fruit and peanut butter toast are my faves. Juice is a winner too. DH bought me some salt and vinegar chips yesterday but I didn't have the heart to tell him they are no longer on my craving list!

As a sweet tooth, I crave . . . salt and vinegar chips and Vegemite on toast (which I normally loath).  Even a whiff of jelly snakes makes me feel ill.  Attracting a bit of attention turning down Easter eggs and other sweet treats.  On the other hand, I am enjoying fruit more.  This is all so weird!

I'm not craving anything yet, but ALL the foods I used to eat, i feel sick just thinking of.  
Breakfast used to be oats, banana and a coffee, now its buttered toast and hot chocolate
Lunch used to be chicken roll, now its spaghetti in a can
Dinner used to be pasta, stir-fries, now its soups and toast.
i never thought I could live without my morning coffee....now I can't think of anything worse.

I have to eat something every hour...usually plain sweet biscuits.

Oh, Zelle and Little Lion your mention of Salt and Vinegar chips....I now have a sudden carving for!!!  LOL

I feel sick just reading some of the names of those foods. I have so many foods I can't go near. I feel like I am starving all the time and if I don't eat straight away I feel like I am going to vomit and pass out.
A couple of weeks ago I just craved flavours. At dinner time I would put all the sauces we have on the table (that was an initial sign!) I would rather not eat now at all but feeling sick I have to eat often. I am having vegemite on toast and have been craving hot custard for about a week now but haven't had it yet.
And I am so disappointed that I have gone off tea and coffee because these are my favourite time-outs.

I had a mini-meltdown yesterday. We were at a shopping centre and I was hungry (which actually means nauseous) but I couldn't think of what I could eat. Everything seemed unappealing or a pregnancy no-no. DH couldn't understand it and I came up with the following explanation... Morning sickness is similar to what I imagine anorexia is like. You know you should eat but it is so hard to make yourself eat.


I made up for it by having a huge dinner last night, Chinese hot pot. It was the first large meal I have eaten in over a week.

I feel the same way.  During my work lunchtime I walk around the mall, going from one food court to another, I feel hungry and have no idea what I feel like eating.  Nothing appeals to me and the things I do want to eat I cant, no sandwhiches with antipasto, salads that have been sitting there, cant eat pasta with tomatoe sauce as it give me indigestion, cant have fried oily foods, nothing spicy so goodbye to thai and indian miss having curries.  I ate a yummy roast lamp with herbs the other night for dinner but brought it up.  Cant eat BBQ.  Im so sick of vegemite and toast for breakfast, tuna sandwhich for lunch, chicken and veg for dinner or soup.  So sick okf nibbling on salada or crackers during the day.  My diet feels boring.  I dont have any cravings and cant eat many fruits as they give me indigestion.  Never know what to eat, I cant cook as looking at food makes me wanna throw up, DP has been doing all the cooking and he has no idea what to make me.  I use to eat choc every day and now I dont want it.  When baby is here I will need to exercise to lose the weight but all I can think of is how much I want to eat all the things that I cant now like chocolate, curries, pasta etc

Its so funny and sad what us ladies have to go through.  And I thought that I would be having cravings for sticky date pudding, apple pie etc!
