I am one month into pregnancy and just the sight of food or drinks like milk leaves me feeling so nauseated and I vomit seriously. This is preventing me from eating food and drinking fluids. How do I go about this?
This is a common discomfort of pregnancy especially during the first trimester caused mainly due to hormonal changes. Here are a few tips to help you through this time.
<li>Eat small meals and snacks frequently; feeling empty or hungry can make the nausea worse.</li>
<li>Drink whatever is palatable in small quantities through the day.</li>
<li>Avoid anything that may trigger your nausea such e.g. spicy food, tea, coffee, milk.</li>
<li>Avoid strong smells.</li>
<li>Sudden movements such as jumping out of bed or running can make you feel sick.</li>
<li>Get plenty of rest as nausea is often worse when you are tired.</li>
<li>Talk to your doctor to prescribe some medication that may help you feel a bit better.</li>
