Food adversions / food cravings

Just wondering if anyone is having adversions to anything yet?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE chicken (it's like all i eat) and during my 1st pregnancy, i couldn't stand it, just thinking about it made me want to hurl..... i have been able to eat it again, but nothing like before.... and i craved raspberries during the 1st trimester with my DD and bagel thins...

SO far nothing yet with this pregnancy......

Hmm.. before I knew I was pregnant, all i wanted was CHOCOLATE. That's partly how I knew something was up. I'm not a big candy-eater and I wanted chocolate and sweets.

Other than that... nothing really. I am craving sushi (which I can't have dangit) But that's a pretty normal thing. But I think last pregnancy I craved it too.. probably because I know I can't have it for 9-10 months. Sad snap!

Mostly I just have aversions.. Nothing really sounds good.

Not really any cravings or aversions as such. Just find that I can't think what I want to eat. Like yesterday I went and got some soup for lunch which at the time smelled good and tasty but when I got back to my desk I just didn't want it any more. Same with supper, had 2 slices of the frozen pizza I got from TJ's and then didn't want it any more. I ended up wolfing down a bowl of veggies tho (the frozen "Harvest Trio" ones from TJ's)

I am able to eat bananas lately which usually I can't stand the smell of, let alone the taste. And I'm drinking a LOT of orange juice.

I eat salads every single day when I am not pregnant, and right now, salad and vegetables in general sound repulsive. It was the same with my first daughter, and it is really weird, because normally, I chow down on veggies. I have been craving Mexican food in a big way, so it is lucky that I am currently visiting family in Los Angeles, and not at home in Denmark, where decent Mexican is nonexistent. Smile

I sort of just feel mildly nauseous all the time right now, with bouts where it is worse.

I am having a lot of aversions. I'm a HUGE coke drinker but haven't had one in over a week I think. I don't know how, but it just doesn't sound good. We even have caffeine free soda so it's not a guilt thing. I can't handle chicken! Ha! I normally have a huge sweet tooth but nothing sweet sounds good either. I wouldn't say I have cravings, but I'll have things that sound tolerable. For example, a local pizza place makes this sub sandwich that is awesome. It's hot and is similar to a pizza but on a sub. I can't get that out of my head so we are going to have that for dinner tonight. I'm so sick that anytime I think of anything that doesn't repulse me I jump on it so I can eat something other than crackers and cereal. Although its not all that budget friendly Sad

Budgets are hard when pregnancy (especially 1st tri) is around. It's hard to eat on planned meals and such. I hate that part. most the time I don't know what sounds good until VERY last minute.
