catherine_as1 Posted December 2, 2013 Share Posted December 2, 2013 Hi everyone. I was paleo for a year before I got pregnant- I'm 10 weeks now. I had never felt or looked better while paleo. Since about week 4 of pregnancy, I have felt just plain terrible (terrible doesn't even actually describe it)- nauseous, tired, blood sugar up and down, gagging, dry heaves, major food aversions and yellow, sallow sunken skin. I am sad that I have fallen off the paleo bandwagon- I loved it and it really worked for me. Now, I am basically eating whatever I think I can choke down which most of the time isn't even close to paleo. I used to love eggs, but even the site of them now makes me gag. I can't even stomach rice or rice crackers. Pizza and macaroni and cheese stay down. So do cheerios and potato chips. I'm pretty sure that part of why I feel so sick is that I have returned to the SAD. I want to get back to paleo but I feel like it is truly impossible right now. I just hope I feel better as I move into the second trimester and I can get back to a better way of nourishing myself. thanks for letting me share!
