I'm very early in my pregnancy and cannot stop eating, is this normal? I am literally hungry day and night! I get up many time during sleep to eat!!

It is normal.: Congrats! It is normal to want to eat everything when your pregnant. Usually this comes in waves as there will be periods during your pregnancy when your appetite will be low. Be careful. Depending on your weight now, you don't want to gain more than about 30 pounds. It is okay to eat...just eat healthy foods. Fruits and veggies, not ice-cream and cake. LOL. Enjoy!! ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. Don't know how long you have been vomiting for. If you feel lightheaded or dizzy with going from a lying to stitting position or from sitting to standing that could be a sign of hypotension. If your fasting pulse rate is rapid (ie 120), especially if you pulse rate increases by 20 or more when getting up, those are signs that you are likely significantly dehydrated. If this is the case, recommend that you do go to the er or an urgent care clinic (that can give IV fluids) for intravenous hydration. They will also be likely to give you medication to help with your vomiting. You sound like you feel miserable. I hope you are feeling better soon. Take care. ...Read more
