I thought I was suppose to have cravings! The thought of most foods makes me sick......

I am 9 weeks and I can never figure out what i want to eat because the thoughts of most things make me sick. Is this normal?

  • lol yes dont stress it. with my first i was sick all the time and by the time i was a little less queasy, she was too big so i couldnt eat much even if i really wanted to. i felt like i got deprived of the fat preggo eat like a horse thing that women supposedly go through. with my second i ate like a piglet (totally regret it now lol)

  • You're not "supposed" to do anything when you're pregnant. It's completely different for everyone! Aaand you're only 9 weeks've got a LOT of time left to experience a lot of different things. I was totally sick from the time I found out I was pregnant at 12 weeks (late, I know) to about the six month mark. I had a few odd cravings in that time, but mostly the thought of food just turned my stomach.

  • Yes. Different pregnancies are different experiences. With my first, I didn't really have cravings as much as I wanted to eat everything in sight (especially if it was sweet). With my second, I had no appetite during the entire pregnancy; I wanted nothing to do with food (especially if it was sweet). Both pregnancies were full-term and uncomplicated, and both babies were healthy. :)
