Wow, I am back. It’s been a long hiatus. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I had a bout of not being able to eat that I had no energy for anything else, including writing in this blog. But now as I am already in my second trimester and feeling much, much better, I am back. I feel like I am 80% of my old self again.
So, pregnancy and food. It hasn’t been a walk in the park for me when it comes to food and eating ever since I learned I am pregnant. Since my 6th week, I started to have food aversions, and what’s worse it i can’t stand the food that I used to love. I even stayed in Singapore thinking this pregnancy would make me eat like a pig and what happened? I wasn’t able to stand any food, and I starved to the point that I was crying everyday because of hunger. And now that I feel much better, I can eat better but I still don’t like rice. I used to love rice all my life, until pregnancy happens. Now I just eat it because I have to.
Another thing is about the food that I was able to eat. I was only able to eat the stuff that I stayed away from before. Like pork and beef, and lots of sweet stuff. It’s just the opposite of myself. Also, now I’m craving for the things I wasn’t particularly fond of, like coffee. Now I want it, so much that I’m thinking of having my own. I can’t stop looking at starbucks coffee makers. But I can ony have decaf.
A big surprise to me is that I eat less now. I’m contented with just enough food and I even have to force myself to eat more whereas before I constantly have to stop myself from eating waayyy too much. I guess it’s a good thing as I don’t want to be as big as Jessica Simpson. We are about the same height so I can’t imagine if I get as big as her. Plus I don’t have all her money to help me get back to my pre-pregnancy shape, so better be careful Niceyfemme.
