  • i was the same way with my first i was sick the whole time, even when he was born i got sick and the pressure from throwing up made him crown!! but i can say just tell your dr, they should give you some medicine to calm it down... maybe sounds crazy but i am 38 wks i only eat what i crave which is green beans and ketchup!!! as long as you are eating its ok because the baby is still getting the nutrients it needs from you

  • I never ate the first 12 or so weeks of my pregnancy and what I did eat I threw back up. I lost a good 15 lbs in the first 3 months and only gained that back the rest of my pregnancy. I did get over morning sickness but never got a big appetite which was weird because I love to eat! Anyway, technically I didn't gain any weight during my pregnancy and had a perfectly healthy 7lb 8oz baby. As long as the doctor wasn't concerned about my weight, neither was I!

  • How far along are you? Instead of aiming for 3 big meals, try 5-6 small snacks.
    During my 1st trimester, I didn't want anything to do with food.
    If you're taking a prenatal, you should be fine.
    If you're in your 1st trimester, when you get to your 2nd, all you'll be doing is eating. Don't stress.
