    Love the pregnancy story. I, like you, had some pretty strong aversions. I couldn’t stand the smell of a grocery store and also my husband (maybe partly explains why we’re no longer married…!) To this day, many years later, I can’t pass a jar of anipasto without having flashbacks to nausia.

    I love Thai soups… can’t wait to “thai” this one!

    I also loved your pregnancy story and the one from Carolyn! Both gave me a good laugh. I couldn’t eat meat either and to this day don’t like chicken soup anymore.

    When I was pregnant with my one surviving child (a boy) I couldn’t bear the smell of coffee. It nauseated me completely. Then I went toxic, and the doctor put me on a salt free diet. to this day I don’t eat salt, and can taste it when people put it in things. Salty tastes ruin food for me. (He’s now pushing 45 and has two grown girls)
    I loved the recipe for pad Thai. I’ll have to try it
    Thanks, Julie

    When preggers with E we went out for Chinese one night. I swore someone peed in the noodles, but the rest of my party disagreed. I couldn’t eat anything that contained or resembled noodles or Chinese food until at least 6 months after I gave birth. Yeesh!

    This, looks so yummy!

    You just described my second pregnancy! Except I never threw up. Which almost made it worse as there was no relief from the nausea. After about week 12 I literally did not gain an ounce–but since I had gained too much with baby #1 that worked out ok lol. Too bad I gained it back while breastfeeding!

    I love tom ka gai! :)

    Tom Ka Gai and Tom Yum soups are probably among my most favourite soups, ever, and spicy soups (like tom yum and Chinese hot & sour)were big cravings for me! I had no aversions, but I also had the Slurpee craving. Coke Slurpees, in particular.
