We treat the nausea of early pregnancy with frequent small meals. Nausea happens if your stomach gets completely empty or over full. It sounds like you are having completely normal symptoms of early pregnancy. Best wishes. Hope this helps.

Maybe Gastroparesis: Gastroparesis means a slow-emptying stomach. Causes may be mechanical (obstruction, or the stomach outlet narrowed from healing of past inflammation, treated by endoscopic dilation), post-inflammatory (due to swelling of the stomach lining from ulcers, treated with acid blockers), or neurologic (as with diabetes, treated with rx that stimulates motility--domperidone, erythromycin, Reglan, (metoclopramide) etc.)

Boost immunity: Frequent UTIs might cause decreased appetite, inflammation resulting in weight loss in some individuals. Lowered immunity can cause frequent UTIs. Taking a zinc supplement 25-50 mg/day, Vitamin D3 10, 000 IU/day, and a good probiotic daily might help solve the problem since all of them boost immunity and reduce inflammation.
