I’m about 19 weeks and I’ve been experiencing mild nausea and low appetite the past couple days. Unless it’s sugar. If it’s sugar, then I will eat it. If not, I don’t want it.
I’m pretty sure that this is normal pregnancy crap and I’m not concerned per se–I think that when you feel funky, you want others to tell you that the funkiness is okay.
So anyone else get nausea in the second trimester? Any idea of what causes it or how to help it?

My doctor mentioned to me that if you crave sugar it might be because you are low on protein. Maybe can you try some protein shakes? Those might go down a bit easier. And they are sweet! I hope you feel better!

Yeah, I’m probably low on protein. It’s just that when you’ve got nausea, the idea of eating like, a steak is yuk! But such is the story of pregnancy.

@BothCoasts: How about cheese? Does that appeal to you? I’m almost 17 weeks and still have trouble eating meat (chicken and beef) most of the time, but I LOVE cheese. Sorry you are feeling crummy. I still am having morning dry heaves and occasional vomiting every day and had hoped it would be gone by now! If you don’t want cheese, you could try nuts. I snack on nuts and have peanut butter now and then. Hang in there. 🙂

I had morning sickness in my second trimester and it cleared up for about a month. Now it’s back and I am just beginning my third trimester.

I’m 28 weeks and still struggle with nausea some mornings and the general feeling of yuck often if I don’t really pay attention to eating small quality meals often. What a pain!
What about hot chocolate or chocolate milk? That’ll sometimes balanace me out. A lot of times hot tea or just hot water with lemon will settle my stomach enough I feel like eating. Cottage cheese or cheese sticks are my go to snack as well.
Often times I have a hard time distiguishing between heart burn, general yuck, and nausea – they are take turns during a normal day.
Good luck! Hopefully it goes away soon!
