I wasn’t able to write my ten weeks update on time, with all the holidays and all the tiredness I am facing. Even if I’m almost eleven weeks now, I thought I don’t have to skip anything.
The nausea from cooking and from an empty stomach is gone. The bad news is I have a meat aversion that I don’t understand. I am a little scared because I can’t take the required proteins in my body, so I will have to ask my doctor what should I do. I keep trying meat, tasting little bits and hopping that I will get an appetite eventually, but can’t take more than a couple of bites till it gets harder to swallow.
I can only think of eating vegetables, fruits, cheese and eggs, this are the only things I can imagine myself eating, and that gets my mouth watering. I heard vegetarians have a harder time in pregnancy, they get weaker and with no strength.
I never was like this before. I often couldn’t understand a meal without meat in it. When I first met my husband and he wanted to eat boiled potatoes with cream and cheese on top I kept asking “with what?” and he kept saying “cream and cheese”. Now potatoes with cream and cheese sound so delicious. But also, my husband, can eat two small steaks with no garnish, which again I can’t understand. I had to have my rice or my potatoes with my meat, but now I can only think of the garnish with bread for a meal.
My husband was so waiting for the cravings that everybody has so that we can both eat anything we want without thinking of getting fat, for him anyway. But now he is the only one who eats sweets and larger portions, not because he wants to, but because he has to eat my portion too (I hate giving expensive meat to the cats).
So I’m not eating for two yet, I’m not gaining weight and that is worrying, but I suppose is still early to get upset, there is plenty of time for the cravings to kick in, and if the meat will not be one of the cravings I can get my fats from somewhere else.
