@elle-0409, I'm a little worried about over-doing it in the first trimester too, but eating helps keep the nausea away! I'm pretty much constantly snacking. And since I'm snacking on salty stuff, I'm already bloating up like a Macy's parade balloon.
I am going to have to make buffalo chicken with ranch become a reality at some point today.
@ceclarlinetlo YAY for the buffalo chicken sandwich with ranch!! I'm also cracking up that you appear to be eating your lunch in the car, which I've been known to do myself a time or two!
All I've wanted for the past week or so is an Italian sub, but alas, lunch meat is off limits. That and french fries from Five Guys.
@cuduebor I loooovvvveee the Cajun fries from Five Guys. I wish it wasn’t a salt bomb though.
I would say it is still pretty early for me to have many
cravings or aversions. Last time they were pretty mild though so it took me a
little while to realize that’s what they were. I craved French fries and
watermelon (it should probably be noted here that I put salt on my watermelon),
which does sound pretty darn good at the moment. I had an aversion to beef
which I don’t go out of my way to eat anyway, so that worked out.
I have a bit of a decreased appetite. But, I’m trying to
get some more eggs, spinach, nuts, and carrots in. That is my current goal for
treating myself better this pregnancy. @rachelgreene-2 I really like your idea of
the “protein boxes.”
@nachellebeck13 I have decreased appetite this go round too and not from the nausea. So weird cuz with my least pregnancy, if anything got near my face I ate it. I also had an aversion to salad stuffs, it was rough. Needless to say I gained way too much and am hoping the lighter, healthier-eating pregnant me is going to stick around. That being said, I might have spent half hour of my ride home from the doctor today trying to decide between Taco Bell or Wendy's. Wendy's won with spicy chicken and those darn baconator fries. I think this little nugget is all about the spicy.
@cooaladolly Do tell about these baconator fries. Is it just fries with bacon on it?
