Hello again. Now I am pregnant with my second child and I don't feel so well. I get dizzy easily and I had morning sickness all the time. I can't find anything edible. Even though this is my second child but I was strong when I got my first one. I carried heavy loads by myself and don't experience morning sickness. But in this six week I can't seem to do anything. What food should I take to lessen this sickness. I have loads of work and I need to finish them. I don't want to lie around. What are the food that I should eat to gain strengths without harming my baby.

I am with you sister. I am over 29 weeks and still have issues with food. And yes with my first I was better at least I would throw up and then off I went I would be ok for the rest of the day. With this one no way I hardly ever throw up but I feel sick all the time. I have tried everything every food or drink to stop it and I have given up now in fact if I feel ok I think there is something wrong :))) Ginger is suposed to help try that or if you dont like the taste (like me) then there is tablets expecially made with ginger. The reason we feel that way is because our sugar level drops in the morning so maybe i biscuit before you get out of bed would help thats what everyone tells me. (in my case its more the fact that my gall blader was removed and I have all this acids where they dont belong so there is little i could do)

I feel for you. I got hyperemesia pretty bad when I was pregnant too. What worked for me were miso soup and seaweed. It's really different from person to person too. Btw, I know there's a book that guides you on what to eat depending on your blood type. You can try googling that concept and see if you can find a list of recommended food for you.

I am pregnant in my sixth month and I can be lucky I didn't have any morning sickness. I try and eat healthy, my doctor said when you are pregnant you should eat only 15% - 25% more than before. You don't have to eat for two persons doubling your menu. It's important to eat fruits and vegetables daily. Grains and dairy products (not too fat). To avoid your sickness try and eat fresh food, drink fresh juice. Wish you get well soon!

I have some friends who graguated from medical colleges and are now very good doctors. When each of them had a baby, I would go and congratulate her and I would ask about their diet. Surprisingly, I found they all eat their usual food excep for more fruit. So my advice is to keep happy, always enjoy yourself. You can eat what you like as long as you can digest. Never worry about anything. Good luck to you!

I was really sick with both of my kids too. With my second one the thing that worked best for me was Cherrios. I had plenty around since my first son loved them. I also kept hard candy with me because it would help hold off the sickness if I was somewhere I just couldn't get sick at. Good luck!
