  • yea i ant either. and the depressing thing is, since i cant taste i want spicy food cuz you can taste the flavor better but i get heartburn like nobodys business so i cant have the spicy foods. try curry!! i thought curry would be a bad idea since it was a weird flavor and i thought being preg would make me hate it but it was amazing and not spicy so i didnt get heart burn

    i try also not to put too much salt on my foods even tho i cant taste it but if your worried about weight and stuff try and manage without extra salt. do pepper? i hate pepper with a passion so i cant do that.

  • pregnant or not i could never really taste food. so i always get mine spicy. i wouldn't worry i'm sure it's related to pregnancy. my sight is all whacked from pregnancy even though i had lasik done. expect really weird things to happen even if they never happened before in your other pregnancies.

  • I'm not tasting as much, either. For me, that's a good thing because I'm overweight and don't really need to gain any more. Yup. Heartburn's a bitch. I get it after I eat dairy.
