Caffeine, mostly. I was totally caffeine free for the first trimester and maybe half of the second with my first... this time the exhaustion is harder to manage since I have a toddler to take care of, so I'm allowing myself one cup of 1/4 caf coffee every day (it's funny though because I haven't even been finishing it, somehow it's like the act of making and then the first few sips are enough to reenergize me a bit)

I know caffeine is fine, it's just a personal decision.

I cut out caffeine, though I decided to have one cup of decaf last yet and ohhhh boy did it make me feel horrible. I thought my guts were going to rot out.

I gave up drinking and smoking almost three years ago to begin with so that hasn't been an issue.

I also gave up deli meat

I have cut out caffeine and my daily allergy medicine.

Food wise, just the normal stuff, like deli meat, and stuff that makes me nauseus! LOl

Alcohol and smoking are really the only things I'm cutting out completely everything else in moderation.

I am trying to cut out dr pepper. I haven't had any in a few days then had a drink yesterday and it was so gross! I think my taste buds are changing.
I'm also having to come off my pain meds for my back. I have major issues with my back and have been on meds for about a year, so I'm weaning down now and hopefully off very soon. That's the scariest thing because I know I am going to be in so much pain.

I cut out caffeine. I don't drink at all, so that isn't an issue. I can't imagine I'd want to taste alcohol right now, as queasy as I am. I have been hooked on grilled turkey and cheddar sandwiches lately. DH makes them for me, and I can't get enough. He cooks the turkey in the skillet for for a minute or so before he adds it to the sandwich tho.

Kind of coffee? I used to drink a cup or two everyday and since finding out I was preggo I've had 2 cups total. My doctor ok'ed the 800mg a day so...I dunno. I'm just a weirdo I guess.

I don't like deli meat so that was easy. I do miss my soft cheeses. Going to talk to my doctor about that and dying my hair at my appt. on Wednesday.

Also, I didn't really drink that much previously but it was quite amusing at Easter. People were treating me like I was an alcoholic. Waving their beers (I don't even like beer!) and wine glasses in my face and being like, "Too bad you can't have some!!!" I'm just like, "um, yeah...that's fine. O.o"

ETA: actually, after reading that last paragraph, hopefully that's the exact opposite of how you'd treat someone with an alcohol addiction problem... @_@

Caffeine was my biggest one. Everytime I see someone drinking a red bull I want to taste it so bad! But I resist, only 7 more months until I can indulge again
Of course alcohol, deli meat, soft cheese and my favorite excedrine migrane medicine.

I really want to cut out sugar but sometimes a bowl of cereal is all I can stomach.

I stopped smoking two months prior to this cycle, cut out caffeine a month prior...

I don't do any medications, cut out as much processed foods and sugars as possible... If I have a sweet tooth I do honey or fruits... Also cut out as many chemical personal products as possible, I use homemade deodorant, toothpaste, and shampoo...

I watch what kind of food additives or dyes I consume as well.... My husband thinks I'm a nut lol...

Just alcohol. I haven't drank caffeine in years or smoked (although I've been dreaming about smoking).

I've actually had to cut out quite a bit. Basically, my doctor feels I need to follow the GD(gestational diabetes diet) immediately following a positive pregnancy test due to insulin resistance from PCOS. The problem is that I completely forget everything. I am so hungry!
