Thanks for the query.

During pregnancy, no food is considered absolutely unsafe. There are various articles that report pineapple as unsafe during pregnancy, however there are robust scientific evidence to support these claim.

Hence I would say you can take pineapple in moderation. Over eating is to be avoided.

As far as your other concern, nausea and vomiting can persist throughout pregnancy in some women. Avoid eating to the brim - small and frequent meal will be better than three full meals. Medicines such as doxylamine are safe during pregnancy. You may use it after discussing with your treating doctor.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you need clarifications.
