4 Months In…Give Me All The Burgers

We are four months along is the journey of pregnancy and to say that I have had food aversions is an understatement. Which I am finding annoying. I like to cook, I am not picky about food typically but that has changed. Well for the time being at least, I’ve been told that things will continue to change over this adventure!

What I have learned so far:

  • I don’t want to cook
  • I definitely do not want to cook chicken
  • I do not like the smell of a roasting chicken

Which let’s just discuss that for a moment. One of my favourite meals is a roasted chicken. Roasted Chicken and Roast Beef are pretty much a staple for my family on a Sunday. It was a staple for me growing up and even now, well til about 4 months ago that is. There is nothing like walking into your house and smelling a roasted chicken. Moving on…

  • I have turned more vegetarian …

Which leads me to this soup. So I am having a hard time eating protein. Unless it’s a burger, and there is nothing better then a homemade burger to me right now. I could eat a burger everyday it seems like.

Back to the soup, so I looked through some cookbooks and vegetarian books and decided that I would make a big batch of vegetable soup and throw in some Lentils for extra protein. All is going well, soup smells delicious, taste test went well. I divide up my soup to easy portions for quick lunches and think I am doing great. I get to work heat up my soup and suddenly feel like it is the most disgusting soup I have ever had. So much so that there is no way I can eat it! What the heck! My co-worker Ms. M, thinks I’m crazy especially because I keep looking at her soup (basically the same as mine but with Beef) and I just want her soup…

So when does this phase end?

    Sooooo all I can say I had a pregnancy like that. All food looked great but I could not eat it. I was one of the lucky ones and had it through my whole pregnancy. The smells of food cooking drove me to the couch. I was told not to worry about the baby as its just doing fine living inside you. I learn to make up little packs of dry crackers and cookies. Maybe just try the broth after you cook everything or maybe its the veggies to eat and not the broth. Only eat little amounts. If you do find something you can tolerate keep to it and get venture some in small stages. One of my other daughters had the same thing. She ate frozen fruit. It was cool to eat as she was always warm and lots of nutrition. Good luck
