    since friday i've had some foods i usually like and think 'yuck'.

    i made a sausage casserole on fri which tasted 'cheesy' (and there was no cheese in the whole meal)
    on the same day for lunch i put mayo in my sandwich and didnt like it (as it tasted strange) so gave it to the dog (although i know if preg your not meant to have mayo so some of you may not know)
    nothing untowards yesterday
    and today i've had leek and potato heinz soup which i usually love but it tastes so salty! and took me ages to eat.

    which is another thing i am hardly eating all my meals which is sooooo unlike me lol

    yep from the beginnig all the stuff i liked i hate now! its not fair. I have noting really I like now at all from this and i have no idea if the taste for them foods returns after pregnancy. I have a thread in the pregancy forum here on foods everyone hates now so you aint alone. I am hoping i wont go on to choc again my hips are shrinking lol

    are you pregnant? just looked at the ticker there. you could be lol

    thanks

    well i am cd42 today and 20dpo and all bfn's so far. my longest cycle is 45 days which takes me to wed but unfortunately i would be too far gone for a 'typical' LP phase so if i am due for a 45day cycle i missed ovulation by a week eventho an ov stick and ff chart confirmed ovulation on the 6th oct

    all very odd lol

    if i was pg i would be 6 weeks tomo and recently been getting backache, and funny tastes since fri

    prob all in my head though like usual! lol

    I find all my food tastes like dough nuts.....Oh wait thats cause all I am craving is dough nuts. =D
    sometimes I find that things taste a little different (maybe my senses are a bit heightened)
    I was eating chicken and could taste the onions in it....but my hubby swore he didn't put any in
    I think its silly.

    I have gone off all my usual foods and when I do try some they taste strange.
    They taste offputting a bit too.

    All I want is milk,orange juice and fruit.

    You may well be PG,it alters our food taste/senses.

    LouisaL I am really keeping my fingers crossed for you this month. When will you test again? PS I am starting to notice weird tastes too - it's like my taste buds are hypersensitive!

    Oh looking good.:happydance:

    I went off certain foods as they just didnt taste nice at all....but I found myself wanting milk(which I dont really drink on its own as I dont like the taste) fruit and cheese.

    Oh you can eat mayo when preg so long as it pasturised. So shop bought jarred/tube stuff is ok.

    I didnt fancy it but today have a craving for oven chips and mayo.

    All food tastes to me salty / savoury.

    I have gone off stuff I would normally have eaten by the bucketfull.

    Also... after I eat I feel a bit sick and then have this weird hollow feeling in my stomach like I am starving, so weird.

    Anything savoury tastes weird to me, but anything sweet, bring it on!!

    I'm normally the other way around, I don't normally have a sweet tooth, but I loved anything savoury.....weird!!

    Chocolate tastes totally bland now (I used to be a huge chocolate fan) which is know bad thing for me.

    My sense off smell is off the scale - odours are so strong smelling, and lots of smells turn my stomache.

    :dust: My food senses changed very quickly I think around the 6 week mark. Loads of things that I loved I couldn't eat or drink and wanted dairy loads. Cheese milk etc. *Fingers crossed* hun
     
  19. I have definitely had food aversions! A symptom in my book!

    I haven't ben able to eat curry for my whole pregnancy. I usually love it, but just can't face it now!
    And I love the smell of coffee, but if I make one, I can't drink it. Gross!!!
