    Default 6 weeks & off the veggies! Help!

    Hi girls, I'm 6 weeks today and can't stand the thought of eating any vegetable!!! I usually love veggies and eat tonnes of them so this is a big shock for me, any tips? They smell and taste so disgusting to me right now they make me vomit.... Surely there's a way around this? I feel so guilty if I can't have veggies, I know how important they are for bub.

    Soup???
    I totally went off fruit!! Made me want to be sick!! I'm 26 weeks and still can't stomach it!!
    Do the best you can and supplement maybe with fruit if you like that (since veggies aren't your friend)? If you can't eat it, you can't. Don't beat yourself up!

    Default 6 weeks & off the veggies! Help!

    I'm vegetarian and had a huge veggie garden when I fell pregnant with DS2. Then all of a sudden vegetables nauseated me beyond belief - couldn't even look at the ones growing in the garden or open the fridge in case I smelt one. My single attempt to cook stir fry for DH in that time ended in much vomiting I just ate what healthy foods I could stomach and tried to take my pregnancy vitamin. It passed quickly

    It will probably pass in second trimester. It happened to me this pregnancy and also a friend of mine. Just eat whatever you need to to get through this time, don't stress about nutrition too much, your baby will be fine and you can eat better when you feel better. I hope that's soon!

    I was the same in the first trimester although I found I could handle some vegies if they were mixed in something so I had vege soup, Shepherds Pie and Spaghetti Bolognaise with lots of vegies. Then I found I could handle roast vegies so I have been having them every night.

    I wouldn't panic personally... eat what you can.
    I was the same in early pregnancy... I ate what I could in the way of fruit/wholegrains etc. and steered clear of what made me feel ill.

    Thanks girls, it's reassuring to know I'm not the only one! Soup is a good idea will try that. I thought I was ok with roast veg but tonight made me sick. I was thinking of trying some veg based dips too, are dips safe in pregnancy?

    I ate dips most of the processed ones from the supermarket are fine. I had the same as you, It passed by second trimester! I just kept up the multivitamins.

    Dips are fine but only if open less than 48 hours.

    Could you stomach some juice veges in fruit juice?
