  • I went through a phase where salad turned my stomach upside down. Now (38wks) it doesn't bother me anymore. I'm the same on the chef boyardee. When i'm in a hurry i like to eat ravioli and it has a really nasty taste the last few times i've ate it. I know that it's possible to have a change in taste but as far as how much i'm not sure.

  • I've hated Avacado's everyday of my life and 4 weeks into my pregnancy I couldn't stop eating them. I literally ate one every day of my pregnancy. I still love them and so does my daughter, go figure.

  • Before I found out I was pregnant, we ordered Italian food to go. When we got it home I saw that mine had mushrooms in it. I have never liked mushrooms but, normally I would just pick them out and eat the food and be fine. But, this time the mushrooms disgusted me so much. I almost threw up at the smell and I picked them out and tried to eat the food but, I could still taste them and I was so disgusted that I could not eat the meal and threw it out. That night I started thinking and I took a pregnancy test and sure enough it was positive!
