No worries hun. I no expert. In fact this is my first pregnacy too and I'm about as far along as you are. But I can tell you this with confidence: I'm a nurse. Not an ob-gyn nurse but I have plenty of nurse friends who are. They told me, that it is perfectly normal to be sick all the time in early pregnacy. In fact, it is only called morning sickness because that is the most common time it happens. Many women, myself included, can feel queasy at any time of day. For me I felt sick from the time I woke up til the time I went to bed. As for the health of your little one, again put those fears to rest. Rite now your baby does not need that much from you. It is very common for a woman to lose a few pounds during her first trimester. Once you hit the fourth month, than you can start worrying about packing on the lbs. As for your prenatal, I found the horse pill my dr prescribed to be way to harsh on my tummy. I went to the vitamin store and invested in a yummy chewable gummy vitamin. Just make sure it has the same nutritional values as the one your doctor prescribed. If you are still having doubts, by all means contact your ob-gyn. Have a happy healthy pregnacy
