Until tonight I was thinking, 'well, at least I don't have any food aversions'. But at Stitch and Bitch tonight, someone bought in cupcakes with gummy worms on them. I wasn't in the mood for cupcakes (which should have told me something right there), but I grabbed a loose gummy worm. It must have been the concentrated sugar hit. Instant queasy. That's when I realized that for the last little while I haven't really been interested in anything sugary. I mean, I've had a candy or two, but I used to crave chocolate bars all the time. Now, not so much. No dreaming of cake like I usually do when I'm hungry at night (and I'm always hungry at night these days). I still like fruits and juices and the like, but I seem to be off straight up sugar.
It's really interesting how the pregnancy is affecting my eating habits, but I have say, my stomach is starting to piss me off a little. I just wish it would make up its mind. If I'm even a little bit hungry, I get queasy. When I eat, I feel bloated. Why can't I find a happy medium?

I left early last night because everything was just smelling so very wrong. Things didn't get much better when I got home, Chris had made pesto chicken pasta for dinner (which I normally love) and it smelled so nasty to me I had to light some incense to try to cover it up.

I look forward to this stomach stuff settling down.

You will be happy to know that I ate the cupcake you stole the gummy worm off of. FYI I hate gummy worms.

Man, my friend Anna had the worst luck with taste aversions. I think those were the symptoms that she had before she even knew she was pregnant, but the lasted through pretty much the entire pregnancy. The big ones I remember were coffee and ANY KIND OF MEAT. She had never been a vegetarian so that added a whole new learning curve to her pregnancy.
