Bless you! 1st trimester absolutely sucks! I went off most food too, but I also went the opposite direction where I was sick a lot that I actually lost my appetite. The only things I could really tolerate eating were satsumas, cheese strings, ice lollies and oddly bbq crisps. During this time keeping to cold foods is probably best (ones that don’t smell and make your stomach turn).

Don’t feel guilty about not being able to do anything and needing more sleep, your body is working hard. I was exactly the same. I used the spatone liquid iron supplements during 1st trimester and although not a miracle cure, I did find they help take the edge off the never ending exhaustion.

Hopefully in a few weeks you will start to feel better!

Don’t feel worthless, first trimester can be terrible. If you can’t get anything down please talk to your GP or midwife about it and arrange some anti nausea medication. It doesn’t really matter what you eat as long as you manage some calories and hydration - I found crackers or chips (salty was better), as well as quite dilute juice seemed to work. If you can manage to just constantly snack on small things that sometimes helps keep things more settled (eg keep snacks by your bed!). Sleep lots - tiredness makes it so much worse. Don’t worry about not doing anything else - your partner can help with cooking for your daughter etc. it will get better!
