I'm another one in the same boat, a little on the underweight side and really looking forward to being big & fat & pregnant.  

My problem is my metabolism, I can eat really well but it just burns away.  And if I skip a few meals or get sick my weight can drop fast.

So this nausea is most inconvenient lol

I'm having reverse MS. Feel fine when I wake up and in the morning and then get worse as the day progresses.

Luckily its just constant nausea but haven't ever properly vomited. about 5.30/6pm every afternoon like clockwork I have a bout of dry retching. Will be 10 wks tomorrow so hopefully its not getting any worse.

I've tried ginger tea, ginger and lemon in water, regular snacking, and the acupressure wrist bands. I'm not sure if any in particular are helping.

I went to see a naturopath who said to try and stop my blood sugar from dropping too much. So eat protein with every meal and snack and avoid high GI foods and sugar.

The most annoying thing I'm finding with the nausea is I've lost my appetite. I used to LOVE food and eating and I've totally gone off it. I also use to really enjoy stuffing my face - eating big meals. I've never been into multiple small meals... just three big ones a day.

I'm sure how I'm eating now is healthier but its not as much fun!

Seriously don't think I could go through this again! It's horrible and I so just want to go to sleep and wake up when this part is over!

I've lost 7kg in this pregnancy so far but not sure if I've put any back on since I've been able to keep food down, still getting nausea nearly every day though. I know its strange but I'm just used to it by now.

I haven't had really bad morning sickness with my other pregnancies but I have trouble putting and keeping weight on during pregnancy. I was 7kgs lighter after DS1 and 10kgs lighter after DS2. The doctors were worried and sent me for scans, both my boys were fine - growing etc, they couldn't quite work it out.

Try not to worry ladies, I am in the very, very small minority and you will probably find you will be able to eat and keep food down once the first trimester has past and you will put the weight back on that you lost :)

I'm so with you there PrincessOopsie. And you've already done it twice before! This is my first time. How were your last two pregnancies?

For those suffering MS the OB at the early pregnancy clinic said stop the multivitamins, just take I-folate until week 10. Week 8 she said is the peak.
Hope that helps, sure helped me!

With both my previous pregnancies the ms stopped between 12-14 weeks so hopefully it happens the same with this one fx lol
