ugh, thats hard. I barely cooked at all when I was pregnant because I was nausous all. the. time...

Lemon-drink water with lemon, lemonade, anything lemon helped me. Even ricola lemon and mint cough drops. I still keep these cough drops around for that reason. I chew a couple tums smoothies when it comes out of no where, sometimes it helps.

I hope youre feeling alright and something helps!

DH cooked last night but he can't do it every night. That's not fair.

I have no clue what I want tonight but Sweet Potato Fries sound great again. Poor DH is going to get sick of them.

yeah, it's really hard. we ate a LOT of frozen food when I was pregnant. I had huge issues with raw meat, especially chicken, so it was really hard for me to cook just about anything.

do not throw up on the food. that's my advice Im in the same boat.

A few nights ago I prepped some chicken bundles and a meatloaf when I was feeling well. then it was already done for two days when I didnt feel up to it.

I popped the meatloaf in the oven last night, and the boys said it was the best meatloaf ever.... the smell of it made me nauseous I didnt even get to taste it lol

I have no advice because I do not do well cooking when nauseous. I've never had to do it for an extended amount of time, though. Maybe get real friendly with your crock pot?

I ditto this!

I ate a lot of vegetarian when I was pregnant because I can't stand the smell of meat (especially beef) when I'm preggo. (salads and sandwiches, with pre-cooked meat not lunch meat because of listeria)

Casseroles and such were also better for me because I didn't have to handle the cooking meat.

You could also ask DH to cook some chicken and ground beef on the weekend and use it through out the week to put into things.

First -

Second - Eat raw if you can't cook. Cereals, fruits, maybe try toast, not raw, but not a heavy cooking smell either. Yogurt, bagel and cream cheese, maybe a waffle in the toaster? That's all breakfasty... as for other meals, try blander foods, and simple cooking methods. Try boiling before frying. Put away your slow cooker that makes the house smell so lovely most other times. Keep trying raw foods, there are many raw food recipes out there, and the diet is trending right now, so much more will be out there than years past.

Thanks. It's not too big of a problem yet, but I'm sure it's coming.

I second the do not use the crock pot thing.

Cook it once a month works great one nasty day with DH doing the lion share of the work food for when you don't feel like cooking. The last time I did this was right before Beau was born but I documented everything.

I felt so miserable during my pregnancy that I just didnt cook. I think I ate nothing but cereal and milk (one of my cravings) the entire 41 weeks. We ate more pizza in the beginning till we found out I had a gall stone.

the rare occasions we cooked, bf would cook the meat and add the seasoning in. Once we go to that stage I could generally take the smell.
