No: There's no data to allow one to answer this question. On the other hand, logical thinking would lead one to conclude that there's no way the fetus would "know" what you are eating. The placenta, which is the interface between mother and baby, only transfers fundamental nutrients like Amino Acids and glucose; not "broccoli flavor molecules.".

Control reflux!: A properly performed nissen fundoplication will stop your gastroesophageal reflux, getting rid of your heartburn. Some patients have difficulty belching or vomiting; some also have some difficulty swallowing solid foods such as meat, bread, and rice.

Correct deficiency: Weight loss occurs when your body burns more calories than you consume by eating. Hypothyroidism may slow the body's metabolic rate, thereby decreasing caloric expenditure. Taking thyroid hormone will correct the deficiency and help you lose weight. Hypothyroidism is detected by measuring tsh, thyroid stimulating hormone; not thyroid hormone itself. Vitamin d is a separate unrelated issue.
