Healthy eating helps you feel better? Or is morning sickness just good days and bad?

So last week I was 8 weeks, and thurs/fri I started to feel a lot better. Still tired, but not that constant yucky/need to lay down feeling. Over the weekend, I tried to just relax and sleep a lot, but made some bad eating choices since we had leftover pizza and I didnt feel like running out or cooking. I mainly ate toast, pizza and a corn dog and some cereal since it was all that sounded good, but now today I feel like I am paying for it. I feel sick, and constantly nauseous and I am wondering if the morning sickness just comes and goes in waves? Or if by trying to eat healthier and have healthy snacks if that really does make you feel better. I thought that maybe I was getting over the morning sickness and was going to feel great this week, but its quite the opposite.

Anyone else have this issue?

  • I'd say it's a bit of both. All that junk probably makes you feel bloated and sluggish, but the nausea is probably ms. Hope you get better and just eat as best you can.

  • Agree with PP. That first trimester can be just about surviving. 
    The only way I could keep ms from getting bad was to eat constantly, whatever I could stomach, which changed daily. Most of the time it was bland food, like toast or cereal, but I would try to snack on things like fruit and raw almonds as much as possible.

  • I do. Whenever I eat badly I feel sick for the rest of the day. It's hard with me for breakfast, but I have to eat relatively clean or I'll pay.
