I wish DH could cook.

I'm tired of throwing up while I cook meals, I haven't eaten in days because I can't stop throwing up and he can't cook.

Food of any kind is an issue. He is perfectly capable of cooking with guidance, he just won't touch the raw meat. Which is what is triggering my morning sickness.

All I'm asking is a little help for the next few weeks until I get the morning sickness under control.

Am I asking too much. I can handle everything but the cooking itself.

He really should be able to handle cooking for a few weeks- how did he survive before you got married? It's really not too much to ask. Tell him to put on rubber gloves and suck it up. If raw meat is the worst thing he has to deal with, he's gotten off lucky. Parenthood is much messier and grosser.

You can also be eating things that don't require cooking- especially not raw meat. Even a bowl of cold cereal or something similar is better than nothing.

I'm like that from beginning to end when I am pregnant, and nothing would have to trigger it. By the time I delivered I was down 20 pounds, but I hear you. I just did what had to be done and kept a puking vessel nearby.

He should step up and help out. I don't understand leaving the wife with all the cooking. My DH and I trade off or do it together.

Order from Schwan's if he's going to be a jerk about it.  I mean, even the stupidest person can make grilled cheese and tomato soup (the easy options are endless.)
