  • I had it only in the first trimester but my aversion was also to meat. I couldn't go near it. It was so strange. I would try and try and I just physically could NOT do it. I didn't get sick or anything. It was about as appealing as a bucket of nails.

  • It was salad for me. Not the lettuce, but the smell of salad dressing made me SOOO sick.

  • yes, With my fist daughter I stopped eating meat since I was 5 months pregnant with her and couldnt eat meat again until a year after she was born it was so gross just the thought made me wanna throw up. With my second I ate everything and now with these twins its happening again. I cannot stand meat. I will not eat it. I an't go near it. I absolutly hate chicken I have to work around it. So instead of eating spagetti and meatballs I'll eat it with out the meat. I especially hate fround beef but cannot wat porkchops or anything. My doctor said it was ok and there was a study that showed that pregnant women whow don't eat meat when there pregnant those fetus actaully live longer. It was a European study.
