Since becoming pregnant, I don't like sweets. Oh, sure, I enjoy fruit, smoothies, yogurt, pudding (tapioca or rice only), but I just can't stand the thought of candy. Or cake. Or cookies. And this is terrifying.
Do you have any comfort foods, internet? Because chocolate was one of mine until recently. It's amazing how, when I was having a bad day, a small piece of chocolate, just one Dove's square, would relax me... make me feel as if things were gonna get better somehow. But no more. My comfort is gone.
I had to give away my entire Easter basket. Both of them, actually.
There is a drawer full of candy in my kitchen, untouched for months.
The ice cream in my freezer? Probably gonna start growing hair any day now.
The other day I had some small pieces of licorice... I thought that was a step in the right direction. I also had some hot fudge sauce from my friend's birthday sundae on Monday (a sundae on Monday, ha!), and I thought I was making progress. But no. I love the smell, I just don't want to put it in my mouth. So sad.
In fact, my other comfort food was cheese (cheddar, smoked gouda, pepper jack, colby... all are glorious in my mind and abundant in my fridge), and I can't stand the thought of eating a chunk anymore, either. This could partly be due to the fact that my stomach gets full pretty quickly, thus inhibiting my desire to push one more thing down my throat. Damned slowed digestive system! You make me feel as though I am on the edge of puking all the time! Or maybe this baby just doesn't have his/her mother's sweet/cheese tooth. (I have a cheese tooth.)
Oh, internet, what's a girl to do when she can't enjoy food anymore?
