To eat or not to eat...

Is there anything better than a piece of toast with butter and Apple Butter smeared all over? Yes! Two pieces of toast with butter and Apple Butter smeared all over... oh yeah...

I have really started to appreciate what my stomach will accept and what it won't. I can't stomach a whole lot of sweets (good thing) or a whole lot of milk (sad thing). I am constantly bemused by what I think I want and the moment I take a bite: Whoa! This is disgusting!

I have been confused by my stomach several times, thinking it is telling me "you're hungry" when really it's telling me "Stop! I can't take anymore.. where are the Tums!?!" Boy, does it make me pay when I do that. I wish I could just NOT eat and feel fine. No hope for that, unfortunately.

I am amazed at how just a passing thought can make me feel sick... (Fish oil pills) I am also amazed at how much tripe (sometimes literally) I can watch on TV and NOT feel sick... (I recently found out what tripe is...I can't believe people eat it.. sick!)

I am looking forward to the day that I wake up and don't feel like worshiping the porcelain deity. If this pregnancy is anything like the first.. it might be another month.. here's hoping for an early reprieve.

It wasn't so much my eating habits while I was pregnant that caused me problems, it was all the crazy smells that made me want to lose my lunch. . . I had to breathe through my mouth my entire pregnancy. . .RAW MEAT!!! Bluurrpp!

Ah yes...the porcelain deity...I too have worshiped that mighty god. Another reason NEVER to get pregnant EVER AGAIN! Bananas were my problem being pregnant. It took a good year for me to eat them after I had Joshua. They were THAT disturbing. That and kiwi, but I got over that one sooner.
I wish I had some apple butter...

Hopefully you get that reprieve!

I may need to make an emergency trip to the store to buy some apple butter!! I already have the peanut butter . . .

Every pregnancy is a bit different, so be optimistic!!

word verification (I kid you not!): mater (latin for mother)

Mom is right. Each pregancy is different. I could all the carbs I wanted with the first and couldn't eat anything with my second.

Aislyn was my fruit baby and Allisa was my meat baby.

Go figure! Pizza was a killer. I still can't eat pizza.
