Here's the thing...I'm actually smaller now than I was beginning this pregnancy (G confirmed this looking at me on Skype this afternoon....my ribs are getting thin, which explains how a belt managed to bruise them yesterday...ouch!). I haven't had too much morning sickness (just a tetch and then it settled down), but I also haven't had too much of an appetite. My doctor says this is perfectly fine and it will return by the 2nd trimester. I hope so. I've never felt so ambivalent about food. I think, "I should eat something." But the idea simply sounds wholly unappealing. I wish I was like this normally!
So, I've been eating a ton of fruits. And I made pancakes, but they're rich and can make me feel queasy on the wrong night. However, I have been loving salmon, and I finally have managed to eat normal meats (beef, chicken, ham). My milk bill at the grocery store is quite the little expense. That and apple juice seem to be all I want. Even when coffee sounds like a good idea, I have a cup and then I don't really want anymore.
However my greatest success was the other night when I was able to take myself out to Indian and devour it without feeling ill at all. Early on the snail and I had a little talk about mama liking spicy food. I'm glad to say that the snail has finally conceded. I love a child who listens well!
So I'm not really eating this trimester as much as munching. My friends are taking me out for Chinese for my birthday tomorrow night, and I'm hoping that stays down (the last time I had it was before I discovered I was pregnant and I thought that I had an upset tummy). But munching works for me, fruit and veggies are your friend!
Do you have any tips for healthy snacks to keep on hand? I've banned cheez-its from the house because they taste so good, but they are one of the few things I can eat a lot of!
