I'm worried that I'm not getting enought veggies because they turn me off so much lately.

I do eat alot of fruit.. And my vitamin must have lots of good stuff.

Hi..popping in from the October DDC. I have not been able to eat veggies regularly since being pregnant. It took me until I was way into my second trimester to even try to eat a salad. I still can't eat them like I should be. I just can't help it. And when I force myself it just makes me sick. I am not worried. My doctor suggested dried apricots offer a lot of the same nutritional benefits as broccoli and some other veggies. I also drink shakes with a lot of added stuff to them which I know helps. I am doing the best I can with it Good luck and hope you are able to stomach veggies soon!

YES!!!! I normally eat salad with lunch and dinner and I can't even look at it. I'll make it and then not be able to eat it. About the only thing Im eating is fruit.

I have cut way back on vegetables too. I tried to really load up on them while ttc and the early days of pregnancy. Luckily I am still eating a lot of fruit, so hopefully that helps!

With my daughter, I couldn't eat green veggies for some reason, especially green beans and broccoli. I threw them up every time I ate them, for the first trimester anyway. It was frustrating, but I loaded up on fruit, and she was just fine. As long as you're trying to get produce in other ways, don't worry about it.

I am not a big veggie fan on a normal basis, particularly cooked veggies. Blech!! This time around, I feel more interested in veggies, but only raw ones. Again, no thanks on the cooked -- I don't like the texture/consistency. Anyhow, I have never eaten tons of veggies with any of my other pregnancies, and my daughters all seem normal, relatively. Okay, maybe I should have said healthy!!

There's ways to get veggies if you cut them up really small and put them in with other things (like in with tomato sauce, or chopped up in beef patties)....I don't have any specific recipes, but hear about mothers doing that to make sure their children get veggies in their diet without them knowing. I wonder if that would help?

There isn't much that I am able to eat right now and that includes most veggies. Those I was able to eat and keep down some steamed zuccinni and squash last night and I don't seem to have to much trouble with boiled broccoli. Hope it gets better for you soon.
