Expecting and only want to eat high-fat food! Help!
I'm a frequent poster at the Home Decorating, Kitchens, and Cooking forums. I've never posted here. But now I have a problem and I could use some advice, please! :)
I'm pregnant, and I'm due in early November. This will be our first baby. I couldn't be happier! But, like many other woman, I am sick to my stomach almost constantly. It seems to be worse in the evenings that in the mornings.
What I've found is that I'm craving very high-fat food. That's all that seems to settle my stomach. Crackers work, for a few minutes, but a Big Mac is what really makes me feel better! And that's not good. And to make matters worse, even though I'm sick, I still get hungry about every 3 hours.
So, does anyone have a tip for me? Have you found any meals or recipes that are filling and not so high in fat and calories? I'm a bit overweight to begin with, and I just know that my doctor is going to tell me to try to stop gaining any unneccesary weight.
