Definitely not the cutest picture of me, ha ha! 22 weeks 2 days
While I was in my first trimester if you asked me how I was feeling... I was feeling pretty darn good! I knew I had it better than most, I wasn't experiencing any nausea. But looking back? I'm so glad I'm out of that stage when it comes to food! I had major food aversions. I'm pretty sure the only things I craved during those first 3 months was steak (apparently my body needed whatever the red meat had to offer) and Dr. Pepper. I have craved Dr. Pepper since day 1 :) I had to start my day out with a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal. Not because I was craving it, but that would kind of sooth my belly. Which sounds weird because I didn't have nausea, but that's the only way I can describe why I felt the need to eat it. And I ate more peanut butter and honey sandwiches during the 1st trimester than I have my whole life! Other than that, the only things I could make myself eat were fresh fruits and veggies. And that was incredibly difficult because textures really got to me!
Now that I'm well into my second trimester? Everything is pretty much back to normal! I can eat anything and the idea of food doesn't gross me out at all... phew! I have a horrible sweet tooth and it doesn't take much more than a glimpse of a picture to trigger a craving but I never indulge right then. If I'm still thinking about it days later then I'll enjoy the treat. I still crave Dr. Pepper daily (but I rarely drink it). I crave red meat 1-2 times a week. I am still loving honey! I always have oranges in the fridge, which has never happened before! And I crave cupcakes daily. The weird thing for me has been my love for cereal. I usually have 2 bowls a day! My pantry seriously has 20 different boxes of cereal to choose from, it's just ridiculous! But I can't stop eating it, ha ha. Other than that, I haven't experienced any bizarre cravings! I'm just loving having my love for food back... a little too much if you know what I mean ;)
