I don’t have any personal experience in this area, but I wanted to send you hugs and lots of encouragement!  My mom had 6 kids, and she said that the only times she knew the pregnancy was going to be a good one was when she felt nauseous.  All.  The.  Time.  Thusly she had to eat constantly — it was the only thing that made her feel better!

I also had a friend last year who had to eat almost every thirty minutes at the beginning of her pregnancy.  My friend just made sure to keep several healthier options around so she didn’t feel so guilty about munching constantly….fruits and veggies, nuts, yogurt, whatever she could handle really. 

I know it must be very frustrating and everything, but just remember that your body is going through some major changes (with an exciting outcome at the end of it!), so try to feel encouraged by what is to come.   🙂

it’ll be ok!!!! i promise. don’t worry about it. you’ll see that sweet baby and you won’t care about how quickly you gained weight in the beginning. i gained a LOT in the beginning and then stopped for a while and then started again in the last few weeks. it’ll all come off! i lost all my baby weight a month after i had him and i gained 20lbs in the first trimester. don’t worry about it, seriously. you’re only pregnant for 9 months!

I hope this will give you som encouragement. During  my first trimester I ate constantly to combat the nasuea but only puked twice. I was positive I was gaining unhealthy amounts of weight. Come to my surprise I actually lost weight!!! Your body does crazy things while pregnant..just listen to it and youll be fine!!

I don’t have any advice, but this happened to me too! Don’t be too hard on yourself, the nausea really makes it very hard to control your eating very much. Just do your best and accept that you can’t eat perfectly.
