  • when I was pregnant for the first time I got extremely sick. I could only sip certain drinks like apple juice and water and they had to be at room temp or hot....nothing cold. all I could eat practically was buttered popcorn, canned chicken noodle soup and vanilla ice cream.
    I had to be prescribed some hard core nausea meds that helped A LOT. best thing to do is to talk to your doctor now and get seen....because you don't want to be dehydrated on top of not being able to eat as well...xoxoxo

  • Now. If you can't hold any food down, you need to call. If it is only related to the pregnancy, s/he can give you something for it. I was prescribed zofran. I actually lost 10 pounds early on because I couldn't keep food down. You don't want to run the risk of getting dehydrated and landing in the hospital or loosing too much weight.

  • Maybe ask your doctor for a prescription for Zofran or something to help knock the nausea out. The most important thing is eat very small meals thoughout the day.. Like 5-6 meal. Eat crackers and try tea.
