Post subject: Arrrrrrghh help!........
Hi ladies I am 16 weeks pregnant but for the last few weeks ive not been able to eat properly, I can have soup, beans on toast and a jacket potato and cereal. If I eat a 'proper' meal eg roast, cottage pie, spag bol just anything normal the second I finsh it I have the runs (sorry tmi) sometimes its half hour after eating but sometimes its soon as ive finished. It makes me feel horrible all the time has anyone else had this? I dont know how much I can take I feel weak, dizzy and shaky all the time cos im not able to eat how I normally do
Any advice would be gratefully received!

Just eat what you can when you can. If something gives you the runs then try to avoid it - the body is clever at sorting out what it wants. Are you drinking enough? The runs is usually from not enough water. And try to get some sugars in there too to try to eliviate the dizziness (biscuits are good at this).
Some people have no symptoms, some stop at 12ish weeks and others are blighted the whole way through - I think I had 3 weeks without sickness the last time until it started again. If you adjust your diet and you are still feeling ill then go to the MW to check if there isn't another cause. Oddly, my bowels were the healthiest that they had ever been during that time! Haha!
