    Foods during 1st trimester that will NOT make me barf!

    I am at a loss as to what healthy foods I can eat that will not make me want to throw up! I have tried to be good about eating veggies, but it seems like they are the main culprit. Especially green veggies, most of the time I start gagging before I get it to my mouth. I have also tried to eat a lot of fruits, and although they don't make me feel bad, I can tell they make my stomach very..."acidy" I can't even stand salads, which I usually love. It seems like all I really crave and want to eat is pasta. Steak and chicken can go either way for me depending on the day.
    This is my first pregnancy (sorta), actually I still don't have my first appt for a few more days, but I'm hoping this sickness is a good sign. It seems like I feel the worst a dinner time and the best in the morning. And it seems like I get hungry so fast and I must eat immediately or I feel awful.
    Is this normal?????!!!!!!!!!!

    I was really sick for several months during this pregnancy too. I lived off from Cereal (like granola or other healthy cereals), fruits, and Ramen Noodles. Couldn't do meat at all. I would suggest just eating whatever you can stomach and just know that it will pass
    and here's my story...

    I could only eat chicken tenders for awhiel. I started eating soup a lot so I just started making it. I made vegetable soup in the beginning, tomato puree based. Now I do a combo of chicken and vegetable, almost like a tew because I pile in the veggies and have very little broth. I eat it all day long. My poor husband has been eating soup for 2 months, lol.

    Vegetables made me totally sick during my first trimester too, esp. the green ones. I lived on saltines and dried ginger and ginger ale. The only thing I really enjoyed were chicken fingers. Sometimes soup if it was really salty. I think this is totally normal for your first trimester. Like you, I would feel like I wanted to barf everyday around dinnertime. It was awful. But, good news is it does go away and then you'll want to eat everything! I would say just eat what you can stomach and don't worry about not getting a balanced meal. They'll be plenty of time for that later.

    Xizelle-I was just thinking today that Ramen noodles would be delicious! Haven't thought about those since college!

    ok good, it makes me feel better that no one else can stand veggies either.

    it is normal to not crave veggies...especially in the 1st tri. All I wanted was pizza, burgers and pasta the first trimeister...but it got much better for me in the second tri. it is important to eat frequently...every 3 hours...don't let yourself get hungry or you may get sick. And maybe eat some crackers in bed before you get up and never go to bed on an empty stomach. Eat what you can eat. I have craved brocoli this whole pregnancy....but I had some bad morning sickness for a whie.

    Make sure you have granola bars or fruit and water with you all the time in case you get hungry while out.

    Totally normal. Just eat whatever you can stomach. The baby gets what it needs from you regardless (for the most part). I ate so much pasta that first trimester (with ketchup and parmesan cheese...ew!).

    You're totally normal! I am in my 9th week and the food aversions are awful! I have lived on fruit, yogurt, cheese sticks, mac and cheese, baked potatoes and pickles for the last month! My poor husband has not had an actual dinner in over a month! If something sounds good, i have to eat it right away or else the craving will go away and it will make me sick. Here are the cravings that I have had to go out and immediately get recently:
    -tonight was fried chicken from Church's ( funny thing is chicken is one of my food aversions!)
    -last weekend it was sushi (luckily there are some types that are cooked)
    -a few weeks ago it was Olive Garden (the meal was great but the leftovers the next day turned my stomach!)
    -a few weeks ago for lunch I searched to find a place that had red beans and rice

    I just recently read an article with 10 foods you should eat during pregnancy so I went to the store and got a few. Red bell pepper, which I sliced up and ate raw for a snack-chives, which i snipped and put on my baked potato-pinto beans, which was really good with plain brown rice-spinach, which I ate with sliced strawberries, almonds and blue cheese dressing. I didn't get all 10.

    It's all very weird right now but sooner or later the nausea will stop and food won't make you as sick. Don't worrytoo much about it. :0
