Hi Girls,
I was just wondering if anyone had changed food habits during pregnancy? I really really hate salt and vinegar crisps, but for afew days now I'v been eating loads of packets lol.
I heard its normal to eat weird stuff, well crisps aint exactly weird, but to me they are cos i can't stand them lol.
What food changes do anyone of you have?

Hi girls - At the beginning of pregnancy I went totally off anything with pasta - hated spaghetti Bolognese even though it is my favourite!

I've gone back onto pasta now but for a while there I was worried I'd never eat the stuff again!

As for eating stuff that I don't normally - spicy stuff! Nothing is spicy anymore. I was a whimp when it came to spicy food, but now everything just tastes bland. I'm heating hot curries without batting an eyelid!

im finding it hard too, to know what i fancy to eat really. Toast is the favoured lunch for me but it feels so boring having toast all the time. i think iv also gone off chocolate a bit, i can only stomach a small bit if i fancy it. Im trying to eat lots of fruit as i seem to want to eat it, but im definately getting the "bland" thing too. Twice this week ive made a really nice dinner and then didnt "taste" much of it.

the joys of body changes eh!

Hi Girls

I've found that I just don't fancy anything... I haven't got morning sickness either so it's not because things make me feel sick - it's just i don't fancy anything in particular.  Also, I don't feel like I get hungry - is that normal?

Hi All,

I'm having a nightmare with food just lately. I don't fancy anything, keep feeling sick all the time. God knows what I'll have for my tea tonight. I've just read eating ginger biscuits can help with the morning sickness. Anything sweet is fine. Anything stodgy or saucy I just can't stomach. I hope this doesn't last too much longer, I can't stand feeling this sick
