H A N G E R 🍔 I’m going to admit it, i didn’t realise how restrictive I was until i fell #pregnant and no longer fancied the foods i’d always eaten.
When i say restrictive, i mean that my meals were always planned around a protein source and a whole lot of veggies. The #firsttrimester was hardest, all my bump craved was marmite sandwiches, chocolate wheetabix minis, salt on EVERYTHING, meat and ZERO veggies.
I’ve been pescatarian for 3 years and im nervous of the online hate im going to get but this #baby wanted meat & the smell of fish was enough to make me vomit. I took the supplements, i went to the drs and over and over i was told to listen to my body, so yes, i had a chicken dish once a week during the first trimester. I hated the taste & would often shut my eyes but i can’t even tell you how much better i felt afterwards.
Im now in my #secondtrimester and the craving has almost gone, im less into veggies and more into salads & fruit at the moment but the salt, meat & marmite has gone.
Luckily for me i have a man who supports my current confusion with #food and we half almost every meal as i never know what i’m going to want. My answer: do what you have to do to provide a safe home, then go back to your restrictions & rules once you feel like yourself again. (If you want to).
