Anti-Comfort Food

When I was pregnant with the boys I was would have late afternoon bouts of nausea and maybe dinner would look unappetizing.  But, I was working full-time and would pack a huge lunch bag full of breakfast, lunch and snacks and at the end of the day it would be gone.  And I would indulge in my fave comfort foods like cheese, carbs,  sundaes and Doritos

Not with The Bean.  Oh no, the nausea doesn't come and go, it stays all day and night with more fierce waves at different times of the day.  I feel like I am riding on a boat.  I even dream at night that ocean waves and tsunamis are hitting me.

Bean doesn't like my fave comfort foods like Kraft Mac & Cheese, Dunkin  Donuts iced coffee, provolone cheese, pizza, pasta with red sauce or anything with butter.  And forget sweets or Doritos.  Bean reacts with a vengeance to most meals or snacks!

The only foods The Bean seems remotely willing to tolerate are mashed potatoes, saltines and sour green apples.  Yum.


  1. Sour green apples? Wow. Well, at least there are SOME things you can eat! :-) I hope the 'all day sickness' goes away soon!

  2. Aw, so sorry you are having a hard time with the nausea. I've found it to be worse with one than it was with two as well! Strange, eh? I hope it lets up soon for you!
