Food, not so glorious food...

I am totally off my food.

The thought of red meat makes me feel revolting, and hot meals in this hot climate make me feel like i'm burning up and sick. The smallest amount of food seems to make me feel full and eating a whole meal most days is well and truely beyond my capabilities.

Clean and fresh flavours seem to work best on my menu. Soup has been pretty popular this week. And salad... Lots of salad.

I don't feel like I have morning sickness, but food is just not interesting me at the moment.

Last night I ate the largest meal I have eaten in weeks. Vietnamese Mien Soup...
The night before I ate a chocolate covered marshmallow Santa and a bowl of frozen raspberries covered with custard...
I may have a ways to go trying to strike balance in my diet!

Is anyone else feeling this way? I thought you were supposed to feel better in the second trimester!

  1. I'm with you on the food apathy! I'm not feeling nauseous anymore but trying to contemplate what to cook (or have DH cook) totally turns me off eating. I think I was hoping for a second trimester 'click of the fingers and you'll feel better' moment but that was probably a bit optimistic really. Hoping it's just going to take a couple of weeks instead! Mind you, having read this, I could totally go some frozen raspberries and custard!


Tell me what you really think!
