    Default All day sickness and lack of nutrition

    I am 9 weeks and have been feeling nauseated and unable to eat anything except some fruit, sakatas and vegemite sandwiches since the beginning of week 5. I am really worried that I am not getting enough good food to bub. I just cannot stomach anything. I am on folate, vit d and iron as supplements because I cannot take normal pre natals due to iodine (I have hyperthyroidism). I spoke to my doctor and they said I should be fine, but I cannot see my morning/all day sickness improving

    You're best to concentrate on eating what you can stomach. No point forcing yourself to eat a bunch of nutritious stuff, if it's just going to come back up. Once the morning sickness ends, then you can focus on eating healthier

    This.
    Just eat what you can for now. Don't worry too much, babies are pretty good at taking what they need from your body. Hopefully the sickness improves soon.
    I think I had a week of only eating McCain frozen pizza in my first trimester and I tried to eat pesto pasta one night and the smell made me so ill I still can't eat pesto and my DD is 14.5 months old so don't push it too much! Just eat what your body wants for now.
