Leaking nipples in pregnancy - how to prevent nausea and vomiting during pregnancy

Leaking nipples in pregnancy: Leaking nipples are normal and usually nothing to worry about.
The leaking milk is colostrum, which is the first milk your breasts make to feed your baby.

See your midwife or doctor if the milk becomes bloodstained.
Nausea and morning sickness during pregnancy   
Nausea is very common in the early weeks of pregnancy. Some women feel sick, and some are sick. It can happen at any time of day – or even all day long.
Hormonal changes in the first three months are probably one cause. Nausea usually disappears around the 12th to 14th weeks.
It can be one of the most trying problems in early pregnancy. It comes at a time when you may be feeling tired and emotional, and when many people around you may not realize that you are pregnant.
How to avoid nausea and vomiting in pregnancy      
If you feel sick first thing in the morning, give yourself time to get up slowly. If possible, eat something like dry toast or a plain biscuit before you get up.
Get plenty of rest and sleep whenever you can. Feeling tired can make the sickness worse.
Eat small amounts of food often rather than several large meals, but don’t stop eating.
Drink plenty of fluids.
Ask those close to you for extra help and support.
Distract yourself as much as you can. Often the nausea gets worse the more you think about it.
Avoid foods and smells that make you feel worse. It helps if someone else can cook. If not, go for bland, non-greasy foods, such as baked potatoes, pasta and milk puddings, which are simple to prepare.
Wear comfortable clothes. Tight waistbands can make you feel worse.
Severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy
If you are being sick all the time and cannot keep anything down, tell your midwife or doctor. Some pregnant women experience severe nausea and vomiting. This condition is known as hyperemesis gravidarum and needs specialist treatment.
