    My wife also had morning sickness in her first trimester. She is especially vulnerable when she was hungry. So she try to reduce the symptoms by eating more small meals. She was basically on a 6 meals a day diet, but all small meals lah.

    She was also very sensitive in smell, and all of a sudden, some things that she used to eat, she start to turn against them, and feel nauseatic when see them. I had a lot of difficulties in buying dinner for her then... Very hard to find and guess what she wants...

    there is no foolproof way to curb MS...
    conventional ways will be taking sour foods, taking smaller meals, eating crackers 10-15 min before stepping out of bed

    for myself, when i carried my 1st ger. i was vomitting thruout my pregnancy.. even to the day i gave birth...

    n now my 2nd pregnancy, 15wks now, i haven't gotten MS.

    my gynae says the more MS, the healthier the bb.. which i think is quite true.. coz i used to smoke n my hb smoke.. but my ger turned out fine..

    Hi Gilbert, would you like to try GNC Pre-natal pack thats what my wife takes throughout her pregnancy. :p

    Hi gilbert, your wife can either take b-complex vitamins or simply take it from food. Al nuts contain vitamin B. However, stay away from Peanuts because it is known to give allergy problem.

    If you want, I have an extra bottle of vitamin B. Let me if you want it.

    Lastly, vitamin B is a water-soluble vitamin and thus, our body tends to lose it regularly. Especially Singapore weather. Got to take it regularly.

    Just take note of that.

    1st trimester, 1st time pregnant,
    her body is adjusting to hormone changes,
    best to overcome the change for this moment is to rest.
    If girl, not as bad,
    if boy, be ready for a BIG BANG from your wife.

    (Have she seen her doctor for Folic Acid, supplements & multi-vits yet?)

    From looks to temper to food intake, likes & dislikes...

    From a wife point of view, I'll say... GIVE IN... hehehe...

    Nothing is more difficult than being pregnant & giving birth,
    since hubby can't help with it,
    then please make her feel good & important about it... hehehe...

    CONGRATS!!! [​IMG]

    都不懂是生男,还是女。What do you meant by "big-bang"? 你的意思是,性格转型,还是,忧郁症?

    So far, only seen doctor once.Prescribed something like iron pills only leh.

    Early morning, want to eat this, eat that, I got to buy her and sent to her work place. It's killing me siar.
