Just discovered that I am experiencing a rather bothersome side effect that I thought I had avoided: loss of taste sensation. I didn’t realize it at first because I was eating hospital food and I felt so sick. I thought the food was just bland. I started to notice it yesterday when I made a pizza that tasted a little bland and then when I ate a whoppers robins egg candy and it tasted bland. It still didn’t click though until just a few minutes ago. I was making a grilled ham and cheese and tasted the ham, something I know what it is supposed to taste like. It had almost no flavor. Then I tried the grilled cheese and some tortilla chips. All bland… Josh read that it could last as long as 4 weeks. Praying it doesn’t. I guess I won’t have to worry about eating because I like the taste. I ate about 3/4 of the sandwich and threw the rest away. Food takes on a whole new meaning when you can’t taste it. It’s a lot easier to just eat until you are full. Could be good for losing the rest of the baby weight too.
