I need to eat vegetables and I just can't! I try and I try and they won't go down. I feel like I'm 4 years old. What does go down easily? That would be cake and ice cream. My birthday celebration seems to have lasted 2 weeks and I've had enough cake and ice cream for a lifetime. But it never makes me sick. It's my friend. I made the most amazing pasta dish with whole wheat tortellini and tons of fresh spinach and tomatoes with garlic and I loved it at first . Then I brought it eat for lunch and I was literally gagging on it. What is going on with me? I need to eat good food, but when i try it just won't happen. Did i try drinking a V-8? Yes. UGH. Never again. My very favorite salad from Aladdin's? Took two bites and had to give the rest away. Chicken Chalupa from Taco Bell? No problem. Is it psychological? I don't know. I literally gag and can't swallow anything after a bite or two o certain things. It happens with yummy, bad-for-me food too (wings from Hooters), but it didn't happen right away so I at least I ate a bit before I had to stop. I'm not sure what to do. Rice Krispies have become my best friend too. I'm sure this stage will pass, but I just feel so unhealthy. (not literally - I feel great...I just think the little peanut needs more than yogurt, cake, and Rice Krispies)
First appointment with my OB is Thursday and it can't come fast enough. I think I'm going to have to get a fetal heart monitor to ease my mind because I know the days of an ultrasound every 2 weeks is coming to an end.
I can't believe I'm 9 weeks already. Wow. I wonder when it'll sink in...
