I am relatively new to the site, I joined a few months ago after we had been struggling to conceive but I though that I might actually be pregnant, it turned out not but it's been great for support ever since and it turned out to be lucky for me as after about three or four months or so I conceived, I am 6 weeks pregnant now. I have a potentially high risk pregnancy, due to a rare pre existing medical condition there could be a chance that I may miscarry once the baby gets to any size, (but touch wood everything is going to be fine) and on the plus side it will mean I get lots more scans and lots more chances to see baby
I also love food!! I love pretty much all food, in fact I think the hardest thing about being pregnant is giving up sushi, certain cheeses, pate and wine!!! (wine is food, its grapes so technically it should count towards your five a day!!)
Normally I have certain things I really fancy to eat but recently nothing tastes the same, it's like I have anti cravings, I normally love fresh baked bread with butter so I made my self some with the normal anticipation of the pending yumminess but once I took my first eager bite it I was like, meh, it's not really great, Thai green curry, usually moreish but now just bland, chocolate, take it or leave it! I could go on forever I like pretty much every food!
I keep thinking of food how I used to remember it, but when I make it I take two bites and I am not bothered any more and just leave it, nothing tastes good.
I don't really have any morning sickness yet, one little episode but it only lasted an hour or so.
Has anyone else had this?
Will it go away and if so when will it go away?
Please tell me it will go away!!
Please tell me it will go away soon!!
I miss tasting!!!!!!

Thank you and congratulations to you too. Yep this is my first so very excited, nervous and clueless, Is it your first too?
Aww nooo a whole nine months with food being tasteless...although there was one thing that did taste good but its definitely not good for me or belly bean, I had a mcdonalds cheese burger the other day and once I stuffed loads of fries in the bun with the burger it tasted amazing!!
Can't really chow down on too many of those though.

I hate this, when u make something u know u love but it just tastes rubbish when u eat it! I don't get it so often now but did in the early days. I just find I'm really indecisive about what I want and can't ever make up my mind x

im 21 weeks and still very picky.
and yes wine is food lol!!!!
i love food and im not fussy at all. but most things these days im not bothered by or i find something that i love eat it for a few times then i hate it!!!! i must say im better now than i was but from experience of past pregnancies i didnt start eating prperly again until after baby was born also certain foods took me years to like again infact i only stated eating marmite and garlic bread again 3 years later to fall pregnant again and go strait back off them

Aww thanks for your replied ladies but I have to say... bad bad people! You are all scaring me now lol.
Arrgh the problem is I crave food how it used to taste, so I am always hungry I always want something I think is yummy to eat only to get it and find that its not yummy at all and not want to eat it any more, I keep making meals and having just two bites out of them as I eat it and decide I don't like and and move on to make something else.
My kitchen looks like a war zone lol
I really am beginning to think I have been duped.... there has been some serious false advertisement going on in my life, I though when you were pregnant you were suppose to have a food that you loved and ate all the time, demanding that your partner trudges through the pouring rain at 3am to go buy more of the desired food, its not fair I want that I want to eat something and think mmmmm and be satisfied. (and to get to make my husband trudge though the pouring rain at 3am, while I am warm stretching out over the whole of the bed )
Ho hum!! Maybe I will find that food soon, although knowing my luck it will be bark from a tree and my neighbour will constantly have to chase me off from gnawing at there little conifer.

I knew someone who ate coal and bars of soap pmsl x
16/01/2014 at 23:35
Mmmm tasty!!! At least it balanced out, I bet she got in a right mess with the coal but nice and clean again when she felt like a bit of soap, haha. Strangest one I heard was petrol! Honestly drank petrol!! I am amazed it didn't cause major damage!!
Hopefully if I do end up having a craving it will at least be something yummy that I can eat a fair amount of without putting myself at risk of heart disease and is, at the very least, a food product

Well my craving has arrived and I am please to say its bizarrely normal!!
Its wheatabix I can't eat enough of then. For some reason I remembered my auntie complaining that they should build houses with wheatabix when she was trying to get dried wheatabix of a high chair and that was it, I wanted some, i text my husband and asked him to pick me up some on his way home, ten minutes later I text him to say not to worry as I had just been to get some, belly bean wanted wheatabix and belly bean wanted it now!!!
I just ate four and I still want more, trying to stop myself as I need to make some dinner soon, I might just make my hubby something and I'll have wheatabix.
I am so happy its a healthy thing to crave and more importantly that it is an actually food
