What food will you miss the most?

I've only known for about a week I'm PG so I've been doing a LOT of reading on what I can and can't eat since this is our first. 

It bums me out because my love affair with queso dip is temporarily ending. It was mocking me yesterday when I went to lunch at Moe's Southwest.

  • Medium rare steaks, cheese, beer and coffee!

  • I still eat and drink just about everything that I want to (in moderation), but I'll miss wine. :P

  • I'm eating everything, so nothing? I will miss beer, but will probably have a few sips here and there. And after a couple of months, I don't really miss it anymore.

    I was freaking myself out this pregnancy for some reason. Now that I have calmed down, I won't be giving up anything that isn't a problem for my diabetes. I haven't in other pregnancies either.

    I don't miss too many foods. Real sushi I suppose. I'll miss wine and beer most of all.
  • I'll miss beer, wine and hot dogs this summer. But why can't you eat queso? Even if it happens to be made with unpasteurized cheese, it's served hot, so it shouldn't be a problem.

  • @inomniaparatus - Why aren't you going to eat hot dogs?

    Cheese is rarely unpasturized in the US. Even soft cheese. Eat the queso.

    As for sushi - luckily I live in an area where there is an abundance of fresh seafood, so I'm not worried (even about the raw stuff) as long as the place I'm going to is reputable. 

    I do limit caffeine in first tri, just because at high levels, it has been linked to miscarriages in first tri.

    That's what I was thinking but figured I'd err on the safe side. Everything I'd read online said to avoid it.

    This is PRECISELY why I'm on here now because i'm such a newb to all things baby. You'll all have to be my Yodas

    and yes, sushi! I just started eating and liking it too.

    Nothing. I don't eat bait when I get sushi. I only do tempura shrimp or veggie rolls. Everything else is fine. Medium rare steak is fine, and I just won't get undercook burgers and my beer and wine drinking is pretty rare not pregnant. I have spent more of my adult life pregnant than not pregnant, so this is no biggie.

  • Alcohol. All I want during summer is a cold beer. Or wine. I'm going to really miss wine. Everything else doesn't bother me.

  • Alcohol and my usual 3rd cup of coffee. I'll still have a small drink here and there but it's just not the same.

    I'll eat them if they're nitrate free. But nitrates...

    Someone will have to pry the Diet Coke (or Diet Pepsi, as I oddly prefer it when pregnant) out of my cold, dead fingers. 

    I do limit it when pregnant (due to the caffeine), though.

    I am a full out addict but have been able to give it up. It was important to my husband too.

  • You're probably thinking "queso fresco" which is a Mexican soft cheese. Queso that you eat with chips is not the same thing. Eat it.

    And if it's served in a restaurant, even queso fresco is going to be pasteurized. Restaurants aren't going to risk getting people sick.

    WINE. There's an unopened bottle of my favorite resiling on my kitchen counter looking at me with big sad puppy dog eyes. When it comes to food, though, mostly I'll just miss digesting it without intestinal discomfort  :)) (sorry if that's TMI)

    kayjay44je5sc0ecmb
  • Not TMI @Liz726. Things are generally not TMI here (even if they would be elsewhere) as most pregnancy-related things would be considered TMI. I'm sure we'll have a weekly poop thread soon enough :)

  • I miss my hard cider ..... and I'm still not sure I can really give up lunch meat - that was my staple snack food!  I'm trying, but I don't know if 9 months without it is really possible.

    No reason to give up lunch meat as long as you do it at home (since you're likely to keep it in the fridge) and if you eat out, you do so at a reputable place. The most recent listeria outbreaks have been other foods (like ice cream, most recently) and I'm sure you're not going to give that up :)

  • Wine. And beer.
    I used to eat sushi (the raw stuff) at least twice a week and will definitely be cutting back a lot. Maybe once a month.
    I'm switching to half-caff coffee next week and I just know it's not going to be the same. :(

    I don't drink alcohol, caffeine (since pregnant with my twins and bf) and don't like sushi so I guess I won't really miss anything! I try not to eat too much deli meat while pregnant. So that's really the only thing I'll miss just a little :)
    Edit for spelling.
  • The only thing I will really miss is my fall beers (I love pumpkin beer!!!). Non food related I will miss the good over the counter drugs! Zyrtec D for allergies. The good cold medicine with pseudoephedrine. I sound like a crack head but I will legit miss those if I get a cold!

    Wine and sushi.

    And, on the related tangent of vices, pot. To be honest.

  • I'll miss never having to run through a small checklist when eating/drinking.

    I've only known for about a week I'm PG so I've been doing a LOT of reading on what I can and can't eat since this is our first. 


    It bums me out because my love affair with queso dip is temporarily ending. It was mocking me yesterday when I went to lunch at Moe's Southwest. 
    Oh my god thank you for mentioning queso. I am super hungry but so nauseous that NOTHING is appealing. Until I saw the word queso - like a beacon on my screen lighting my way to deliciousness. That's it. That's what I'm getting on my way home. Fuck yeah, queso.

  • Hotdogs and beer this summer! And wine for sure. I'm also a (hangs head in shame) coffee addict. Fortunately the food aversion has made the coffee withdrawal easier. I can trick myself with decaf!
  • Wine. I won't stop eating any food lol
