Drinking coffee definitely make me alert and fast heartbeat but I will have stomach upset, diarrhoea or even keep on farting. ?

Meds effect appetite by the time i take them I am not hungry hrs later i'm so hungry feel like i'm going to vomit. Protein shake ok or cause wgt gain?

Protein Shakes : It's not the protein as much as the calories in the shake. Not sure which meds you are on and why? If you have no choice but to take them, you might want to discuss your appetite problems with your doctor. A long term "liquid" diet is problematic in terms of maintaining adequate nutrition, unless you consult with a nutritionist first. I would get to the root of the problem and correct the meds. ...Read more

Yes: First trimester nausea is very common, and most pregnant Moms do NOT gain weight during that time if the nausea is extensive. The developing fetus can live "off the fat of the land" (your fat and glucose stores) until you are able to eat more extensively in the 2nd trimester when the nausea should be gone. ...Read more
