Pregnant Ladies Eating Habits Do The Survey

Student_of_Doom - March 11

Due to some weird curiosity, I chose to do an assignment in biology on the eating habits of pregnant ladies, and why in some cases the food they eat are far from normal (my mum has told me some horror stories). Because I am not allowed to interview pregnant ladies in hospitals about what they ate during pregnancy (a lot of red tap involved, patient confidentiality I think) I decided to go to a forum for pregnant ladies and ask for your help and information about what you have been eating whilst pregnant. If you know someone who is pregnant, but is not a member of this forum, please ask them to do the survey possibly through your account (only if your comfortable with that). Just for everyone’s information, I have never been pregnant (I’m 16) and therefore know nothing about this first hand, so if there is any additional information you would like to post with your survey, feel free to add it:) also I am sorry if I posted this topic in the wrong area (I’ve been in trouble for this many times in past forums) but I couldn’t figure out the best place to post this, so I settled for this:S Questions 1: (a)do you snack more (b)do you eat bigger meals 2: do you get food “urges” 3: do you crave the same things often; If so, what are they 4: has your intake of foods like bread, cereal, rice and pasta gone up? 5: has your intake of vegetables and fruit gone up? 6: has your intake of dairy products gone up? 7: has your intake of foods like meat, poultry, nuts, eggs, fish and beans gone up? 8: has your intake of foods with high levels of oils, fats and sugar (sugar has to have been added to the food) 9: are there any particular foods you have not liked whilst pregnant? 10: are there any particular smells you don’t like whilst pregnant?

Hi Student. If you dropped the doom, you might get a few more answers.... I was pg so long ago I don't remember. My last pg ended in mc, so probably will throw your survey off. I'm ttc and will happily answer if I get pg again. I thought I'd add that I b___st fed both of mine, and on the 2nd I craved peanut b___ter cookies so much I made a batch every other day for a few weeks... OK, ok, I'll see what I can remember: 1 Y 2 Y 3 ? 4 ? 5,6, 7,8,9 I ate more of everything, tried to eat healthy, wanted more greasy fatty junk food 10 nearly any smells made me throw up, sometimes even food I wanted and liked
