I had morning sickness for about the first four months and it sucked ass!
I lost about 20 pounds because food was disgusting to me. all i could eat was oranges, apple sauce, granola bars, milk, juice, and chicken breast. I craved sugar all the time and hated anything fried. So this all makes since.
Eat the way your baby eats. The child growing inside you nourishes itself by raiding your bloodstream for glucose 24 hours a day. If you don't take care how you replenish the supply, your blood sugar levels can drop sharply. "switch the way you eat to the way the baby eats, a little bit at a time. Put glucose into your system quickly and easily by eating simple sugars, like fruit sugars. You want sugars already half broken down." Grapes and orange juice are excellent.
Avoid fried, fatty foods. That grilled cheeseburger with onion rings may have looked great to you last week, but you might not want to chance it now.
"Anything fried often seems to make pregnant women more nauseated," says King. The body takes longer to digest such foods, she says, which means that they sit in the stomach longer.
Trust your body's wisdom. "Eat whatever appeals to you, as long as you're not eating junk," says Gowen. "Avoid caffeine, artificial sweeteners, all drugs. But if all you crave is pasta, then eat it. It really does work when women listen to their bodies."
Carry raw almonds with you. Gowen is a big fan of raw almonds for pregnant women. Snacking on them "fulfills the requirement of small, frequent meals. They contain some fat, some protein, and are high in B vitamins. They're portable, too, and tastier than crackers."
Keep a night table nibble supply. If almonds don't appeal to you, keep soda crackers by your bed. Moving around on an empty stomach can make you feel worse, says King. So eat something to bring your blood sugar up before you get out of bed in the morning, or in the middle of the night.
If you're taking prenatal vitamins, check with your doctor. In some instances, they can make you sick to your stomach.
