I can only eat certain things...

When I was pregnant with my son, I was never sick and was able to eat whatever I wanted. I am almost 8 weeks pregnant and just about everything turns my stomach. I can not even stand the smell of coffee anymore and I used to love my coffee in the morning. Is it bad that eat things that catch my eye and don't make me sick even if it's "not good" for me? There are very few things I can eat right now...

  • At one point all I could eat were candy canes. They kept my upset tummy calm.

  • If you get too sick eating things you're not dying for I say eat whatever you want/can until your stomach adjust better. Just keep trying to get those healthy things in even if it sounds like it's going to make you puke ... i know that's hard but it's important to at least try your best. I hope you feel better soon. With my middle pregnancy I threw up throughout the whole thing and my baby was and is tiiiinnnyyy

  • I had the same issues. With my son i never got sick and never had problem with food. This time around with my daughter i was sick for the entire first trimester. I am also a coffee drinker (3 cups a day), and could not drinyk it..i had to supplement for cold caffeine until i stopped getting sick! Most likely it will get better..and because i understand i truly hope it does!!! For now just eat and drink what u can keep down!

  • Thank you for all the advice! We are getting married in 7 weeks and I am so sick of people telling me to "watch what I eat" so I fit my dress. Ugh..,at this point, I dont care if I wear sweats to the wedding lol. I can not stress enough that I don't feel well, so whatever I can eat I will eat. My nana has arleady mentioned that I am going to need to diet...things are being said that a pregnant women does not take very well. I already feel crappy, I don't need to be told that I am going to get "fat"...DUH people...I am PREGNANT...LOL.
