This is my very first pregnancy and ever since the first trimester, I have not been craving meat. It actually made me really nauseous thinking about eating meat so I stayed away from it as much as possible. The things I do crave are cereal with milk, ice cream, cheese, salads and fruits. Occasionally I'll crave some ramen noodles with a crack of an egg. It's kind of an easy egg drop soup for me. I feel like I'm becoming more of a vegetarian since I've gotten pregnant. I guess my body doesn't crave protein as much.
Before I've found out the sex of my baby, everyone thought I was going to have a girl because I was not craving meat. Well, it's a boy so what you crave does not indicate what gender your baby is.
I'm so glad I'm on my second semester now. Not only the most risky stage for a miscarriage has passed but I'm also not as nauseous and tired. Today, I actually had the energy to walk 26 minutes on the treadmill. When I went to the doctor's office last week, I was 117.5 lbs. I still have not gained weight since I've gotten pregnant but my baby is now 5 ounces in my tummy. The hospital is not concerned. I have been eating a lot in the last week and I have my doctor's appointment in about 45 minutes. Maybe I've gained 2 or 3 pounds. My starting weight when I found out I was pregnant was 120 lbs. We'll find out soon.
