  • Yes, there were certain foods I couldn't stand so my husband always had to pitch in. With my last pregnancy I couldnt stand the smell of turkey and kind of ruined Thanksgivings but hubby was nice about it even though it is his favorite Holiday

  • Oh boy yes! I made my dh go outside and cook on the grill - never any type of food cooked inside and that includes the microwave. And if we eat inside the house then I have to run fans to blow the smell outside, lol. Sucks when it is cold outside! Grocery stores are horrible - all those different smells! I hadn't shopped for 5 months since I couldn't handle it.

  • Thankfully I don't have to cook... My fiance does. But there are still certain things that make me sick to my stomach just SMELLING them. Ground turkey and anything with marinara sauce, ugh! I didn't have any of these things during my first pregnancy, so this is all new to me. I'm not liking it much :|

  • Yes, its awful, I cant cook anything. I feel terrible about it. Im normally the mom that cooks everything from scratch, but for the past few weeks I have given up and am just making convenient foods. Cant wait to get out of this first trimester so I can start feeling normal again.
