Food, unglorious food

Okay, so pregnant women have the reputation of being big eaters, right? Then why is it that all food – even water – is SO unappealing to me right now? I’m trying to eat as healthily as I can, but it’s been very hard, especially during the last week. I had a great conversation with my mom yesterday, and she assures me that right around the beginning of the fourth month (we just started the third) my appetite will come back with a vengeance. I’m taking my vitamins, so I know I’ve got all the nutrients I need, but I do worry about calories, and I know Lex is worried about my eating, too. We want to make sure you’re healthy, baby.

Oh, and it’s really bizarre to feel hungry and nauseous at the same time.

    You may need more solid food and less liquid in order to reduce the queasiness. Cheese and crackers can be eaten in smallish portions every thirty minutes.
