    At the beginning I couldn't stand anything being cooked in the house as the smell made me sick so dh would get us maccys or something else bad.I told mw at 12wk app and she said that early it was fine and to eat whatever I could until ms went away....well that stopped at 14wks and we were just having our weekly Chinese and maybe a burger one day but yesterday I didn't fancy anything so had chip shop for lunch and then a keema Nan and poppadoms with a madras sauce for dinner.today I had a normal dinner which half way through made me wanna b sick so I gave it to the dog and have just eaten the same thing I had last night again....I feel guilty coz poor babys just getting crap but maybe it's baby wanting it as I never ate this badly before xx

    i'm the same, apart from mine stems from sheer laziness at the moment, i usually enjoy cooking a family meal, and get a little buzz when they enjoy there dinner, but i have gotten so lazy in this pregnancy!!

    There was a while where the only thing I would eat was drive through food. Didn't want anything cooked at home. Now I go back and forth from wanting ONE thing at the house (right now it's tortillas and cheese) or drive through. Baby's growing well though, so I guess it's fine for now. I figure if I'm still taking my vitamins baby's getting food and nutrients.

    I'm totally with you- I just keep taking my prenatals and hoping for the best. I have eaten so much Taco Bell, it's disgusting. OH can't cook (he's tried, and the results are horrifying) and I just can't stomach cooking right now.

    I havent done much better myself on the food front, 1st tri it was pappadums and chutneys from local indian , then went on to takeaway chicken sweet and sour. Now in my 2nd tri its natchos with hot salsa, guacamole and sour cream, curry any will do and salt & chilli ribs. i do have my porridge every morning and i eat loads of fruit, mostly oranges and frozen grapes.

    I've been like that from the beginning in fact I think it was one of my first symptoms, all I wanted to eat was take out, mcdonalds, pizza, kfc, chinese.

    I tend to have around 2 take out type meals a week so usually pizza or chinese one night then might have a mc'ds or kfc on a weekend if we are out shopping etc.

    Then I just try to balance it out with chicken, potatoes and veg etc other nights of the week and sandwiches for dinner.

    I don't think it does any harm as long as they are from places that you are used to going to and know that you won't get ill from them etc.
