In brief: Mash is ok

Mash (mashed potatoes) is high in starch and a good source of energy.
Several pregnant women have nausea, especially during the first trimester. Mash is easy on the stomach and can be a good thing to eat when nothing else is tolerated.

In brief: Mashed potatoes?

Yes.
Be careful about butter and fats. Try sweet potatoes - would be better.
