Just for fun, I am interested in knowing what other newly-pregnant women's food aversions are. So what can you absolutely not stand now that you are pregnant? I'll go first: Most types of meat make me ill, but chicken is the enemy! It makes me sick just thinking about it!

My favorite food is chocolate and now I can't stand to taste it or even think about it.

I used to love omelets, but the other day I took maybe five bites and thought I was going to lose everything!!! I normally hate milk, just can't stand it and here lately I've been drinking chocolate milk for breakfast and with supper.

I can't drink cold water????

Fried chicken. It's the only thing that bothers me. For Jo, ice water is all I want, through a straw though.

Im with you L, I used to love chocolate, i cant even look at it now, and for some reason I LOVE EGGS, never did before, i can eat them all day long

I am not sure about foods per se, but I can no longer stand the smell of BBQ's- it makes me absolutely sick- sigh- so much for the summer season. On another note, the hotter the weather, the sicker I feel. I am so looking forward to fall!!

I cannot stand sweet stuff! I want everything super salty. And I am normally a sucker for sweets!

I used to love spicy buffalo salads, sandwhiches, anything that would burn my mouth, but now all I want is bland things like mashed potatoes, oatmeal, ect. Anything with tons of flavor makes me sick.

Hot milk!!! Just the thought of the smell of hot milks makes me gag. Also, it´s funny that someone else here can´t drink cold water! Me, too! I discovered it sort of "shocks" my stomach when I drink cold water.

I have no appet_te, can't drink water, just thinking about food makes me sick.

OK - for those who can't drink water like me...I make a mix of 1/3 fruit juice and 2/3 lemonade (pref flat...)..it sits sooo much better. I tried ginger ale, but it was too strong??

I can't stand the taste of water.

I also can't stand cold water it has to be room temp. I also usually love I MEAN LOVE french fries. The thought of them makes my tummy turn.

I couldn't drink cold water with my first pregnancy. I live in the south where ice water is the norm, started drinking from the tap (filtered of course). The ice water did seem to shock my stomach, but I was also extrememly thirsty. I think it was my first sign that I was pregnant. This time i didn't have the extreme thirst, but I don't believe my water intake was any different from the last time I became pregnant.

Lately, I can't even go into the kitchen! It always seems to me that something stinks in there - but I think it might be my imagination, so I don't know.

Anything green. I haven't been able to eat veggies at all. I can stomach a salad every now and again... but starches are helping me survive!!! I'm going to be a BLIMP before my 1st trimester ends!!!
