I have just hit 7 weeks today, & so far so good. The only problem is that I am struggling to find foods that I 'fancy'. So far my faves are toast, cheese sarnies & Quavers, which are far from healthy, but I'm struggling to find other foods that don't make me feel queasy. Has any one/is any one else suffering from this & how did you go about it? Thanks for reading, Supa x x

Thanks all. I've bought some bananas & blue berries today & I'm guna try chicken with mash & a tray of roasted veg for tea - wish me luck. I have also got some grapes so could do mature cheese and biscuits with them for a snack. Keep the lovely ideas coming x x

Sarah, I've found cheese to be some sort of wonder food. Even when I feel the worst a rew chunks of cheese help me loads. I found it strange when pregnant with my little girl wanting so much dairy x x

Typed a long message before and my stupid tablet deleted it - aaargh!
When I was around 6 weeks I really fancied cheese and salad so I kept eating chunks of cheddar with mixed leaf salad and celery - yum. I then went off healthy food completely and was surviving on toast with butter for a couple of weeks. I could not drink anything but water - sipping one glass of water all day, which was not great! I then started making some salads with grilled halloumi or smoked ham. I also used to make coconut and lemongrass Tilda rice with some roasted leeks, mushrooms and peppers and grated a little bit of cheese on top - it is very nice I am also trying to ensure that I eat some home made vegetable soups.
About 3/4 weeks I started craving slat and vinegar crisps so been eating them a lot.
I am trying to be healthy now so every morning I have a big home made smoothie for breakfast (mainly cos I am not allowed to eat at work and I always used to have fruit for breakfast so I tricked them and started blending my fruit into a smoothie ha ha), I also try to have either a vegetable soup, salad or chicken wrap or rice with something for lunch and also something healthy for dinner. DH makes me big dinners so I try not to eat much at work, he's made me cheesy chips twice and a pizza and I munched the entire thing ha ha.
I don't think I've gone off anything this time, just didn't fancy healthy stuff for a few weeks. I would not worry about not being able to eat much, think it is normal and the baby will still carry on growing.
Oh and I also really like mushed potatoes with butter and salt - yum

Thanks Judy for your fab suggestions. I'm so happy to know its not just be living off toast & butter - ahh feel a bit more sane now. Managed a yogurt this afternoon & the chicken, mash & veggies went down a storm this evening x x

Bless you Lottie, I'm feeling the same. Never really fancy anything, but atm I am finding it best to eat snacks little and often. Did you eat much mango before, or is it more a pregnancy craving? x x
