I'm 7 weeks pregnant and have been pretty naseous lately. I know I'm supposed to be getting certain nutrients but all I can stomach is toast, bagels and fruit, maybe pizza if it's not too greasy. So, carbs and cheese pretty much. I'm trying to get yogurt down for calcium. What can I do to get veggies and protein?

Hi, I am the same way, I am now almost 12 weeks and I am getting better. I couldnt even look at lettuce. Meat made me ill, but I could eat Chicken, so I almost always ate Chicken every night. But carbs are my favorite. I am stuck on bed rest now for a week due to a hematoma and all I am eating is c___p. Take your vitamins and try to eat chicken and things that contain veggies like homemade stuffing or tuna salad with celery.

I had the same problem with my first prenancy. All I could stand to eat was carbs. I had previously lived on protein and steamed veggies, but It would just turn my stomach to even think about it. I made sure I took the vitamins and an extra folic acid everyday and ate what ever agreed with me. Eventually the food aversions weaned. Don't worry too much, happens to a lot a women. Just try to make the best food choices you can with what you can stomach.

Maybe try V8 if you can stomach it. If not, like erinsoul said, just take your vitamins & eat whatever it is that doesn't make you sick and the baby will be fine. Good luck. Hope you start feeling better soon.

Don't worry to much- just eat what you can. I couldn't stomach meat or veggies until recently and I am 22 weeks. I ate cottage cheese, peanut b___ter and regular cheese, yogurt, and eggs for protein. I couldn't do anything about the veggies though- and I used to eat salad everyday. I literally ate mostly carbs for the first 14-15 weeks- Its all I could keep down. Now I can eat healthly again. You can only eat what your body will allow. I tried to drink those healthy protein shakes like Ensure But i threw those up too.
