My appetite is a lot better, but it still seems like I'm confined to just a few foods. Right now I only seem to be able to eat ravioli(without sauce), cheese sandwiches, and pringles. I can drink orange juice and coke floats. That's it. I feel like my only nutrition is wheat bread and orange juice. The main thing I worry about with all the carbs is gestational diabetes.

This acid reflux is really doing me in. Meat is too fatty to eat, most of my salad toppings hurt, I've thrown up fruit too many times, and all dairy besides the unhealthy ice cream is just a bad idea. It's almost like if it's anything tasty, I can't eat it!

I don't eat much simply cuz nothing tastes good so I've lost my appetite. I've had to force myself to eat. So I kinda feel ur pain.

Ditto I eat because I know I need to, not because I want to...

My acid reflux has really been getting me down the past few weeks. I was super sick this morning after waking up with horrible chest pains from it. Everything I eat gives me heartburn so I feel you there for sure. If only there was something to completely take it away instantly!

One of the reasons my menu is so limited is because of the heartburn! Ugh. I heard sipping cold water helps with the reflux, but it also seems to give me heartburn. I just can't win for losing! The pressure in my chest is what kills me. It's from the very bottom of my neck in the little dent and down my entire sternum. I feel like someone rears back and punches me half an hour after I eat anything! And it lasts till everything is digested, and then I have to repeat the process all over again. =P

I wish there was a medicine that gets rid of it in 30 minutes or less. They all take weeks to kick in, and then you have to worry about side effects. I had prescription Prilosec, and it got rid of the reflux, but it also made me vomit 8 times a day.

Summer, I'm lucky that my HG is really focused on the first trimester. I think I had only 6 ER visits for fluids this time. If I wait too long to eat even once during the rest, it reemerges. I'm just happy that I can usually stop it.
