  • You're in the first trimester I take it. I know it feels like your about to throw up but you can force yourself. I had to, I lost 20lbs from being so sick :) Start with water, crackers, bread - plain. the naseating feeling will go away with a little food, I started with about 3 crackers an hour, and it helped.

  • I'm not sure if it will help but have you tried eating very small amounts frequently? I felt terrible whenever I ate 'normally' when pregnant.

  • Stay away from anything with strong taste or smell.........think bland. I lived off bananas and peanutbutter for a couple of months. LOL

  • Yes- whole foods will offer you the most nutrition, even if you just wind up throwing it up anyway.

    Sour things seemed to help me. I was soooo violently ill with all 3- the entire way through my pregnancies, not just the first trimester.

    Word from the wise... Swish your mouth with cold water after you puke, to get the acid off of your tooth enamel, but wait at least 30 minutes before brushing. Brushing immediately after vomiting actually causes enamel damage.

  • if it is bad enough and you are losing a lot of weight talk to you doc about anti-nausea pills. those are the last resort though! and Like ObbyDobbie said wait to brush you don't want to mess up your pearly whites! GL!
