Pregnant after 35

Pineapple and mango are my friends

Seriously. A bowl of pineapple and mango eases not only my nausea, but also my constipation. Like a champ!

Just thought I'd share the natural amazingness of that combination of those 2 fruits. Because they make me too happy not to share the wealth!

  • That is so funny.  As soon as I got pregnant, I developed a massive food aversion to mangos.  Even now, if I look at one I get physically ill.

  • Oh my god, I would cry! Although, I may still cry-- my P?pite apparently has an aversion to chocolate. I'm not sure whose kid this is, then, since Wayne and I both are chocoholics! LOL

    I'm guessing the pineapple would work, too. I've heard about pineapple before as an aid to constipation...

  • I've been hitting dried apricots when I'm really desperate, I actually like the taste and they do help.

    Unfortunately I just don't really like fruit all that much though I did have major green grape cravings in the 1st tri it seems to have gone away :( but i've been hitting the hot chocolate at least once a day this past week, maybe I'm having your kid! lol!

  • Good to know.  I'm eating pineapple this week too :)  I have been eating some prunes lately, not the greatest but I don't hate them.

  • Pineapple juice is also lovely, but I don't know if it would be as effective in battling constipation. Knock on wood, I have been very lucky in that respect thus far.

    This is DH's child without a doubt.  She love cool ranch doritos.  I can't stand them but have cravings.  I have to eat them even though I don't like it.  I pride myself on my cupcakes (made from scratch).  Pre-made baked goods were forbidden in my home.  During the first trimester, little debby snack cakes were one of the only things that I could keep down.

  • Seriously-- what is up with these kids?!?

    I am NOT a huge fruit eater. Or even a huge fish eater-- I like some fish okay, but I have never eaten it every week. And I crave fish at least twice a week now. And I eat fruit all day long. 

    I'm not sure I'll know this child when it arrives! LOL

  • Pineapples are definitey my friend.  We did a late honeymoon/babymoon this summer in Hawaii and I basically ate pineapple for 2 weeks straight.  It was the only thing that didn't make me sick.  I am still eating 3 spears a night.  I will have to get a mango tonight.

     This was me too! During my 1st tri, we went to Hawaii for a family vacation and the pineapple there is so sweet! I'm not usually a big pineapple fan but I could not stop eating them over there. Wish I could get my hands on a sweet maui gold pineapple right now!

  • I really enjoy pineapple too! I think it must be something with the tartness of it.

    Fresh ones can be expensive-- especially since I buy primarily organic produce. But I can get fresh-frozen mango for a couple bucks a bag and a back lasts me 3-4 servings...

  • That's great!  I was thinking it had to be fairly expensive getting tropical fruit up there!  I know when I lived in MA for a semester in college, the produce was way different than CA.
