Can’t Eat Because of Nausea, Nauseous Because I Can’t Eat

Between pregnancy nausea and cravings, us mamas are either unable to keep things down or we’re starving and inhaling the most bizarre foods we’re craving, or what we like to say “baby is craving”. Our co-founder, Valerie, is experiencing some pretty hilarious cravings so let’s chat, shall we?

What are some of your pregnancy cravings that were less than normal? Truthfully, we go through so much as mamas though when carrying our little ones to after delivery and living on edge making sure they’re safe, nurtured and cared for. Taking care of yourself is such a huge priority when pregnant so if you’re experiencing some serious morning sickness, check out this post we shared about ways to stay hydrated!

If you develop any advanced symptoms of dehydration, such as dizziness or fatigue, you should call your obstetrician’s office to schedule a visit or talk to a nurse. Thankfully, the vast majority of women experience typical morning sickness symptoms that suddenly end about halfway through the pregnancy. You’ll get a break and hopefully, feel back to normal in no time!
