I'm 11 weeks pregnant and I lost appetite, all I eat is yogurt and milk, everything else makes me nautious. Is it normal? What should I do?

Normal: Food aversions and lack of appetite are completely normal during the first trimester. Hopefully this phase will pass in a few weeks, and you'll be back to normal. Some people can hide nutritious food in a smoothie or a soup. But not everyone. Generally foods that are ground up or pureed are better tolerated. Think hummus or nut butter. ...Read more

In the past 4 wee when I eat my stomach swells & looks like I'm pregnant. Along with pressure and short of breath & back pain. Will yogurt cause this?

In the past 4 wee when I eat my stomach swells & looks like I'm pregnant. Along with pressure and short of breath & back pain. Will yogurt cause this?

Not specifically: A high fiber diet is healthy but if you're not used to it, bloating can initially result. Most likely, you're swallowing air. This is unconscious and you'd not be aware of it. Do you find yourself belching often? (a typical symptom of aerophagia). Try carefully eating slowly and "overchewing" your food. Drink carbonated soda to force belching and decompression of your tummy. Avoid high fiber. ...Read more
