Spicy foods helps with morning sick - safe?
Hi doc
I have morning sickness all day long but luckily no vomiting. It' s just that nausea feeling all day. It makes it very difficult to eat anything. I' ve started a good routine of eating porrige and ever two hours after that I try and snack on fruit and veggies.
This morning I discovered that spicy and hot crisps and foods help to ease the nausea a bit. I' m 7 weeks preg now. Is it safe to snack on one packet of spicy crisps during the day? Will it have an effect on the baby? I don' t get any heartburn so far.
