I've heard so many moms say "I was the healthiest when I was pregnant". I'm just NOT that mom. As hard as I try I just cannot acquire a taste for the "good stuff", especially during the first trimester.
This pregnancy has been, by far, the worst EVER! I had a few cravings with the other pregnancies and food that definitely sounded good, but this pregnancy I seem to move from craving to craving with no relief! The list just keeps going and going: steak, cheeseburger, snickers, subway, french fries, snickers, milkshakes, popsicles, french fries, snickers, frozen pizzas, slushies, extra crunchy salty chips, etc. Did I mention french fries and snickers?!
When I finally went to the store this week I tried so hard not to give into my cravings and only buy snacks that I thought I could handle while being somewhat nutritious, like dried fruit trail mixes and frozen real-fruit popsicles. Okay, so I gave in and bought a frozen pizza too=)
I think the main thing for me are the smells! I've always gotten the sensitive smell issue before but this time I tend to gag over just about everything. The smell of cooked chicken just about did me in last night...
So, I have let it go and just had realize that this is a season and it will not last forever while I just pray that I don't gain 100 pounds during this "season".=)
