  • Very normal. Just take ur vitamins and u should be okay. It'll stop soon, but may start up again later.

  • The baby will take what it needs from you. Don't worry about it. Eat small meals very frequently, every hour if necessary. Eat what you can tolerate.

    And if it's really terrible, you can ask your doctor for a prescription. I took zofran every single day from about 5 weeks to the day I delivered at 36 weeks, 6 days. Some days I still threw up all day, but it did help most of the time.

  • Every pregnancy is different! You'll be fine. I am now 11 weeks and my non appetite is picking back up so just hang in there a little longer and things will turn around for you. Try very mild foods, lots of crackers and water. Small amounts is a good ideal keep doing this until hunger demands more. With my first I got sick morning noon and night for 6 months and still gained an amazing 70 lbs.

  • well the need to eat is for you, not so much the baby. The baby will take was he/she needs. Keep yourself hydrated and try protiens.

  • I just came through that. The sickness is mostly gone now at 8 weeks. I got through be eating pretzels and Life cereal (without milk). They didn't upset my stomach and the cereal is packed with vitamins. Good Luck! =)
