I'm 5 months pregnant and can not eat meat for some odd reason it makes me sick i always want it but after the first bite i get nauseated ready to throw up the greatest thing for me that i never have a problem with is rice and vegetables.

  • try soups. Although I don't eat meat, I could barely stomach anything through the middle of this pregnancy (only 9 days to go!!!). Soups were the only thing I could bear to eat for at least 2 months.

    Also, maybe try chicken? you can make this meat pretty plain..

  • It is just the pregnancy. With my son., who is 3, I coldnt eat meat either. It made me so sick and I had such a hard time having to cook it for the others. It will pass and you will, it may be after baby though. Good luck!!

  • I was like that too when I was pregnant with my son. I even went to a nice restaraunt and ordered a filet mignon ..after first bite, I puked in my napkin right at the table! I was so embarressed. lol. I guess baby just doesnt like meat yet,lol. Hang in there!
