Eating badly. ExpectingPeanut (34wks) Due September 7 (boy); TTC since Aug 2012; Arkansas 1482 posts

Okay before I say what is going on, before I got pregnant I lost over 37lbs. I do know how to eat healthy. 
I've been eating so bad, every single day. If I try to eat things that I used to I get very sick and throw up. I've tried eating better.. I usually eat fast food once a day. Anyone else who ate bad the first trimester. Mind you I have not gained any weight, but I know it's still bad to eat like this.. ;(

Eat what you can stomach in the first trimester. Yesterday I had a bagel and jelly beans

I try a salad everyday... or salad wrapped in a tortilla.. I may not eat healthy everyday.. but a salad I always try to eat.. with some type of protein in it..

Eat what you can. I was eating healthy prior to baby but then got BAD morning sickness and puked 3 times a day. My diet went to shit and became the "Whatever stays down" diet. Which consisted of lots of grains

My first trimester i did not eat healthy at all...My body wanted all sorts of stuff...taco bell, mcdonalds chicken nuggets...a salad and veggies did not appeal to me lol. Don't stress yourself. Worry about getting all the good nutrients farther in your pregnancy.

The only thing I could eat from 6-10 ish weeks was fruit. My blood sugar must have been through the roof and protein didn't enter the equation. My midwife said not to worry too much, just eat what I can and it won't last long. She was right, I've been back to normal appetite for a couple of weeks now so I'm making up for it :)

Thanks ladies I've just been super worried about it. I guess I just need to portion it out.. I eat till I'm stuffed.. Only because I'm super hungry and can't keep a lot of anything else down.

I didn't realize u were only 9w my bad..
I had to eat spinach at least twice a day weather I had to throw up or not.. because eating all that bad food made me constipated and 10x worse then throwing up..
That's why I had a salad or wrap everyday...
But yeah im 16w and I still eat. taco bell and kfc and sonic lol...
but im trying to stick with healthier snacks as well.

I ended up losing 3 lbs because of my puking even though I was eating like trash. Your body is burning an amazing amount of calories. Even with DD- With her I ate BAD. Chocolate, junk food everything.. I only gained 30lbs the whole pregnancy

I ate crap early in my first tri with both- I only gained 5 lbs in the first 6 months.  Healthy baby.  This time, still not eating so great- 14+2 and only gained a pound. Sometimes fries are like literally the only thing I can stomach.

The only thing that has been able to settle my stomach is a Mcdonalds frozen coke. I feel guilty having one but it helps. The last week or so I've managed to switch that to Icy Poles, I feel a little better... At the moment Im not really able to eat meat or veggies, But living off fruit. It will pass.
