Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Feeling nauseous in early pregnancy is a normal finding. Simple remedies will help her -
1. Eat home made, fresh, bland food. Avoid spicy, oily , greasy, fried or stale food. Avoid eating outside.
2. Instead of 2 big meals, have 5 - 6 spaced out meals.
3. Take lots of water, buttermilk, coconut water, nimbu pani etc,
4. She can take Doxylamine - Doxinate OD tablet, this is needed just once a day, early in the morning, it will help her nausea. Domstal is not usually recommended.
5. She can take Antacids- Digene to combat the acidity.
6. Before sleeping, take a glass of chilled milk at night.
7. Sleep with pillows propping up the head at night.
8. After any meal, avoid lying down or sleeping for atleast 2 hours.
9. Avoid stress or worrying, as it compounds the acidity.
10. She can add simple items like lemon,cinnamom, ketchup to the food instead of chillies and spices to alter the taste and improve the nausea.
11. Appetite varies during various pregnancy stages. Substitute fluids like soups and juices if you cannot eat much solid food.

Wishing you good health.
