I am about 6 or 7 weeks pregnant. i do not have any appetite and always feel like throwing up. my doc gave me iron supplements but they do not make me feel any stronger. I sleep whenever i can because i am constantly tired any sleepy. i also have severe gas\heartburn. Is there anything that can make this pregnancy a little bit more comfortable.

Please check by reply to "nausea and no appetite" on 11/3 regarding the nausea. The sleepiness and tiredness is often part of the hormone changes of pregnancy. Try taking a multivitamin tablet. This may help a bit. Gelusil or Rennies should help for the heartburn.
