Hey, mommas!

So I'm 16+ weeks with baby #3, and food is such an issue with me still.  I don't have the nausea anymore, but every time I eat no matter what i eat, i feel icky.  kind of like the food just isn't settling or digesting.  i'd almost rather not eat at all at this point.

have any of you had success with digestive enzymes?  i picked some up, but i feel no difference at all except more belching.

Another topic -- have any of you done any research or actually participated in any form of placentophagy (consuming your placenta either in raw form, cooked form, or powdered and encapsulated form)?  I haven't even considered it with prior two births, but have been researching it some and it's a thought in the back of my mind.

I am rather squeamish, and the thought of cooking it is OUT for me.  I also would have to have someone else do any chopping of it, etc.   The least icky option I've found is encapsulation, and this is a company (two sisters) who do it locally to me.  Actually, the link is to their blog, not their business site, but there's more info here.


I have to wonder if the steaming and drying of the organ would destroy a lot of its health benefits, or if there is enough left over after the preparation to still be worthwhile.  Of course the *best* way to reap the benefits is raw and soon after birth, but as crunchy as I want to be, I'm just not sure that I could do it.  I am toying with the idea of a strawberries sized piece in a smoothie with tons of other berries and other strong flavors, but I'm not sold and I still have that HUGE ick factor. 

So... is it worth it?  Thoughts?  Experience?  :)
