What "Off Limits" thing do you miss most right now?

I realize that some women feel comfortable with one or more of these things during pregnancy, (black tea drinker right here!) but for those who are abstaining for all or part of your pregnancy . . . what are you missing most? :)

  • Never was a heavy drinker just the ocassional glass of wine typically over the weekend. I knew we weren't trying weren't protecting when we conceived this little bean so I haven't had any alcohol since Christmas time! :((

    Actually in my experience my dr's have said ibuprofen is ok until the 3rd tri. I was just in 2 weeks ago with strep throat and the dr mentioned it to me again.

  • Alcohol, deli meat, and caffeine!
  • I'm not a smoker. The only thing that I truly stay away from are alcoholic beverages. The hardest part is that summer is coming up and I will miss our happy hour beach time at our family lake home. I will occasionally do a few sips here and there from others but not my own drink.

    Other than that I really don't avoid other foods.

  • I'm guilty of having deli meat. I'm not so concerned. I just love having turkey and cheese sandwiches lmao :P

  • I'm missing food in general due to food aversions. I'll second the ibuprofen, too!

  • I miss holding my daughter. She's 9 and a little chunky and I'm afraid to hold her.

    Yep, my OB told me to take Advil at 5w when I had a fever that was hard to control. Alternating it with tylenol, of course. It helped a lot, but I wouldn't take it all the time.

  • @bgriest i'm right there with you on missing shots of fireball & sushi! You can have deep fried sushi though! And if you go to a well known sushi restaurant they normally have *'s next to rolls that are fully cooked! :-)

    I will have to look into that! There's a sushi place right up the street from us that's popular and been around a long time! Maybe their website menu will say...

    I have a brand new bottle of fireball in my freezer just taunting me! My fiancé won't let me so much as have a sip of any alcoholic drinks. Not even a tiny sip!

    I swear as soon as this little boy comes out I want a drink of some sort! Lol

    YAAASSS! I have bad knees and there are sooo many days that I think about how they wouldn't hurt if I could just take some ibuprofen.

    Sushi and deli meats, definately! Before getting pregnant I pretty much drank every night....but strangely, I'm not even missing the alcohol☺

  • Ugh I miss a cold, crisp IPA! I've had a sip of my husband's here or there and it's delightful. I also just want a good cold cut Italian sub! The two together would probably make me pass out from joy!

  • Ugh ibuprofen for my awful headaches that Tylenol do nothing for. And alcohol, all of the alcohol. I enjoy the taste of it a lot and I miss my bartender :(

  • I miss not having food aversions! I used to love sushi and now I can't even fathom the thought of eating it. :( I feel like I won't ever eat it again! I hope my love for it comes back after the baby cause I loved doing happy hour sushi :)
