That is a very strange that only those two things do that. Pregnancy can mess you girls up, though, so it doesn't surprise me.
Ever since having my daughter 8 months ago, I can't eat eggs or tilapia without a ridiculous amount of stomach pain. The pain is right in the area where my ribs meet my sternum and the pain is a deep, constant pain, which results in tons of bloating (almost making me look pregnant). On average, the pain lasts 5-7 HOURS straight, despite taking Tums or Zantac, drinking milk, drinking water, eating carbs (before or after), etc. The pain doesn't really feel like heart burn, because it's not really burning and it's so low.
I've tried eating just egg whites, just 1 egg, scrambled eggs/over easy, etc - all resulting in the same thing. I've only ever tried baking the tilapia.
I can eat tuna just fine, as well as other seafood. I drink coffee without issues. I can have tomatoes and other acidic fruits (pineapple) and not have any issues.
Anyway, I need to see a doctor after we move (military move yay), but I'm just wondering if anyone has ever heard of such a thing and whether it sounds like an allergy or some other GI issue? I'm sort of baffled that pregnancy could create a food allergy.
Obviously, the answer right now is to just avoid those foods (which I've been doing), but I'd love to "fix" this issue eventually since I miss eggs...a lot.
Problem is, I think I would need to have that procedure done where they go down your throat with a camera and look at your stomach or whatever...I really don't see myself being able to do that anytime soon.
I'm going to try a hard boiled egg and see if that makes any difference at all. I doubt it will.
Yeah, I have no problem giving up Tilapia. I bought a salmon filet from Costco yesterday. We'll see if that gives me any problems.
And I can get my hands on free range eggs, although I haven't tried them yet. You thinking that might make a difference I think I can get them at Publix or Whole Foods. I'll try to test them out this week!
I had a similar issue last year. Turns out, I developed an egg allergy after eating them on the regular my entire life. After eating, I would get intense pain in my stomach and nausea which would go away after 6 hours or so unless I vomited to get it out. Definitely check with a doctor to make sure.
Update: We bought some expensive cage free, grain free chicken eggs... I had 2 scrambled yolks (since I know the whites affect me pretty bad) this morning and 1.5 hrs later, I feel bad. I give up. Not worth the pain.
I could probably tolerate this feeling occasionally if I REALLY wanted to have something with eggs, but definitely not on the regular. It's hard to take care of an infant when you feel like crap
I'm moving in less than a month, so after I get settled into my new place, I'll find a new doctor and see if they can test for allergies.
