Morning sickness usually ends with first trimester. Though you are not able to eat, baby will take nutrients from your body. You should take folic acid 1 mg daily. You can take any flavor milk or yoghurt drink. You should see your OB/gyn for need of further workup like ultrasound/ HCG level, hemoglobin/ GI issues and medications for control of symptoms. Hope you will feel better soon.
