Nutrition insurance in pregnancy

My sister-in-law is in her first trimester of pregnancy. The problem with her right now is that she does not have an appetite and is having some bouts of vomiting. Thus instead of gaining weight, she is actually losing weight. I've experienced the same weight loss problem when I was pregnant with my eldest. I continued to take my prenatal vitamins so that I'm sure that my baby and I are at least ingesting enough nutrients.

With my second baby, I didn't lose weight during my first trimester. That was probably because I drank milk whenever I couldn't eat. Not just any milk but milk designed for pregnant women. (I took Anmum.) I have told my brother that this might work for his wife while she has trouble with her intake and with keeping what she eats down. And while this problem is troublesome, it is only temporary. For me, it's basically a nutritional insurance.
