Anyone feel avoidant about certain foods? About 6 weeks or so, no nausea or sickness but certain smells I can’t stand (i.e. eggs, steak). I’ve found myself nervous to cook the salmon we just bought because I don’t want to hate the smell and end up wasting it 😭

I couldn’t eat anything except toast and bagels for the first 12 weeks. Only some meals could I handle any protein and even then it had to be balanced by rice or tortilla or bread. I didn’t cook again until close to 16 weeks. Then it miraculously goes away! Some things (raw chicken) still make me squeamish but yeah food aversions are real. Even now I have no taste for anything really rich, cheesy or buttery. Try nuts if you need protein.

I’m 13 weeks and the majority of my meals consists of bagels and cream cheese because everything else i vomit up…. Soooo yep food aversions are real lol

I’ve also been sleeping in the guest room because for some reason I have sensed a new smell ( ??) on my husband when he sleeps and I can’t stand it. Literally wish I was making this stuff up. Being pregnant is a trip.

Sometimes it’s the cooking & smell. If your partner could cook it, there’s a better chance of you being able to eat it.

That worked a few times for me. But I confess, there was a time in my first trimester that I could only eat Marie Calendars chicken pot pies. Yes, the sodium is terrible but it’s all I could keep down. It’s a staple from my youth so I guess the nostalgia helped.

I had bad food aversion in my first trimester, I would prepare a dish/heat it up in a microwave then my appetite would totally change after I get a good whiff of said food. It sometimes would make me nauseous and I won't feel the need to eat anymore. During that time I would drink coconut water and/or Ensure for nutrients.

I remember leaving the hospital after one routine checkup during the first trimester super nauseous thinking why would anyone want to go through this more than once. Also happy that my baby was growing and I wasn’t going through this for nothing!

Yes this is super normal! Your sense of smell is way heightened during pregnancy. I usually love seafood but cannot deal w/ it during pregnancy bc of the smell.

You guys… I haven’t had a real meal in days. lol today was specifically a vanilla ice cream cone and fries. Yesterday it was hot Cheetos. I don’t even recognize myself anymore 🤣

Oh man I wish I had food aversions. I have no nausea or anything making me feel sick but I am ravenous all the time and basically craving carbs non stop. Carbs and cheese. It’s terrible. The other night I ate ravioli and then an entire loaf of garlic bread to myself! Feel like I’m packing on the pounds and trying to balance it with healthy stuff but it’s hard as hell.

It’s anything with soy sauce for me - no clue why! With each of my pregnancies it has made me very, very ill. 😬🙈

All the time when I’m not pregnant lol

My food and smell aversions started pretty early - maybe before week 6. I'm 11 weeks now and I have to go into a different room and light a candle whenever my husband cooks.

I keep waking up every 2-3 hours at night. I get up to pee rinse my mouth and generally can fall back asleep right away. It’s been happening for weeks now. Say I go to sleep at 11, I’ll wake up at around 1, then around 3:30, then around 5:30. I’ll often just stay up. Or I might try to snooze for another hour or so. I’d like to sleep through from 11-7 as I used to. I guess the good thing is I don’t need an alarm anymore.
