The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I am pregnant on my 10th week. And I have been getting morning sickness since the second month of pregnancy! The problem is that I dont eat any proteins (no chicken, meat or fish) I just cant eat it! I only eat one egg on the morning. Could this affect the health of my baby? I am very concerned about this. I am also taking prenatal vitamins daily.
Most women experiencing NVP in their first trimester are unable to maintain a good, well-balanced diet. Try eating small, frequent and varied snacks and continue taking your vitamins. If you continue to be concerned, call our NVP counselors to learn more about available treatment.
