What I am Eating…and what I wish I could survive on…

This wine I wished I had drunk, but the spaghetti carbonara I did eat last week. I really hope I can eat it this week…(it was that good…)

Today has been the queasiest of all days so far. I even came close to vomiting twice. Usually some sort of protein helps me overcome my nausea, but today that has not been the case. Even my normally favorite foods have the wrong texture in my mouth, but in case you were really wondering, what is Susanna eating at 10 weeks pregnant without discomfort, let me tell you:

1. Ice cream: A guaranteed stomach settler

2. Take Out Chinese Egg Rolls: We got some of these after the 10 AM Mozart Requiem Mass yesterday. They were amazing.

3. Snickers Bars: I am so glad I snagged a bag of these when I bought Halloween candy.

4. Potato Chips: Those seem to be going down fine.

5. Pizza: Duh…

6. Flavored Sparkling Water

So, while I do not feel that great, and I am eating a lot of junk, I am forcing down things like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, eggs, meats…

But I am also thankful, because I am pretty sure the fact that my pants are tight does not have to do with the food I am eating but the fact that the baby is growing and so is my uterus. The baby websites are telling me this. The more pregnant I feel, the more I am thankful for a baby growing and that will hopefully be joining our family.

  1. So exciting. I'm about the same stage as you. I'm grateful my throwing up episodes have been pretty few this time. Don't know if this helps you, but taking HCI and ox bile with meals has been helping with the after-meal nausea, even if it isn't broadening my diet all that much. Can't wait till I'm holding baby in my arms!

  2. Oh, hooray! I can't remember if I knew that or not. I think I did? So many newly pregnant friends these days. 🙂 I have been taking TUMS about 5 times a day. I have not thrown up yet, so I know that I am no where as bad as some people have it.

    I am thinking waiting for this baby will help me get through the next six months of winter. 🙂

  3. Ice cream and potato chips were two things I could always eat while pregnant with Johnny. mmmm….ice cream I pretty much eat all the time anyway. Hope the nausea lets up soon!
