Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Nausea and vomiting as we know is quite common in pregnancy especially in 1st trimester.but some women can get in 2nd trimester and some continue till delivery.the pregnancy hormones to be blamed.but also depends on each body.many donot even get any nausea the entire pregnancy.how lucky!.no need to worry much about your own weight,your baby will be safe and can get nutrients from your saved storage. You can help yourself during nausea by following the tips:
1- eat smaller meals.but eat frequently.as the digestion process slows down due to the growth of baby,eating smaller meals puts less stress to stomach
2- eat non spicy food and eating nuts can releave nausea
3- stay away from caffeine.it triggers nausea
4- eat less salt in food to avoid bloating
5- sniff lemon it refreshes the air around you
