Help please! what eating disorders can a pregnant women get and why?

All kinds: There is so much going on during pregnancy both physically and emotionally. Food becomes different; women are now feeding someone else while they are feeding themselves.

During pregnancy, what causes a female to get nauseated after eating if she dost ingest some type of green veggie my pregnant fiance get's sick after eating if she dose not eat a green vegetable with every meal. Can you tell me why?

During pregnancy, what causes a female to get nauseated after eating if she dost ingest some type of green veggie my pregnant fiance get's sick after eating if she dose not eat a green vegetable with every meal. Can you tell me why?

That : That is a very good question that I have often thought about. No one knows what evolutionary purpose morning sickness caused, to be sure. It was probably to avoid certain poisonous types of food that were bad for pregnancy. Some women get no morning sickness at all, and some women get such severe morning sickness they can only have tube-feedings. Women crave and are repulsed by completely diffferent types of foods. Some women can't eat vegetables, some crave them; some women can't eat meat, some crave it. It is very variable but may have to do with nutritional issues and evolution; no one knows for sure. I hope your fiancee is feeling better soon; morning sickness usually improves by 12-14 weeks. ...Read more

Yes: I have checked out the ingredients and it looks like a very good quality multivitamin, better than most! however, I am concerned that your eating habits are not good.
