I am 5 weeks pregnant! I have noticed that when I make dinner for my son and boyfriend, I do not eat the meat. It looks and smells really really good when Im cooking it, but when its time to eat I pass...is this normal?

When I was pregnant with my first I had a severe aversion to meats. I couldn't eat any of my favorite meats, they just looked awful to me when I got done cooking them. I craved fruits and veggies the most until I was about 20 weeks along. At that point I started eating medium cooked red meats, which I had never eaten before. Before it had to be well done or I wouldn't even touch it. Every pregnancy is different and most women go through some sort of aversion during their pregnancy that they normally don't have. Its completely normal and should be expected. If you have cravings you should also expect to eat things you would normally have turned away from...
