Eating

NVP Counselor
Date: 2003-04-23

Question:
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.

Answer:
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.
