      I have not been able to save on my grocery budget since i have become
      pregnant. I use to spend anywhere form $30-$60 a week and now oh i bet
      i spend way, way much more than that. I never feel like cooking, i’m
      nauseas alot.

      I’m hoping some of this will be going away soon. I’m 13
      weeks pregnant now. It’s just hard to buy ahead when you don’t know
      what you will like or feel like.

      My family is getting tired of Pizza
      and Spaghetti, those are the 2 main things that i can tolerate. When
      you are pregnant do you cook? Or do you just order out?

      I’m looking
      for ways to cut the bill and to also find recipes that would be ok
      while pregnant.

      anymore, but when she was, it wasnt that she couldn’t
      eat what was made, is that she craved something else.

      If this sounds overprotective… think about how my
      wife feels. HAHA, I wouldn’t let her play soft ball a
      couple weeks ago. (Is that over protective, or just
      being safe?) Oh well, she didn’t play either way.

      No, I wasn’t thinking “Overly Protective”- I was thinking Dangerously CONTROLLING. Being “Picky” while pregnant isn’t about, “She’d rather eat something else”. Your body literally develops aversions to certain foods that you previously loved. If she “craves” something else, it’s because her body needs the nutrients that are available In that food item.

      As for not being “allowed” to play softball, ridiculous. I’d be damned if my husband controlled what I did or when, whether pregnant or not. deadhorse  smilie
