  • yes, I don't find anything that I can to eat really. However I do make myself eat something. I'm 28 weeks not 6. See if you can eat jello or popsicles just to get the fluid.

  • Believe it or not this happens all the time. In fact some women lose wieght in the first three months. Is your first child a boy? Myths say that women tend to have worse morning sickness if they are having a girl and according to my friends it seems pretty true. Are you able to get your vitamins down? that is really important. There are some ways to help u. Dont eat anything greesy and some medicines are approved in the begining u should speak with your doctor about these. Hope you feel better

  • With my first I didn't have morning sickness either, but I did get a bad stomach flue at about 6 weeks along. I didn't eat anything for several days, and then I found one thing I could keep down 99¢ Tostido brand pizzas from Save-A-Lot, I lived on those for the next few days until I felt I could stomach other things.

    What i would do is try the same bland diets they doctors recommend when we are sick. Chicken Broth, Jello, plain tea, unsweetened applesauce....
