I am in my first trimester. Picked up some frozen goosberries from the Indian grocery store. Had at least two of them, the big ones. All the nausea is gone so also the metallic taste that I have been having. Love this fruit. I use to eat them after meals growing up in NE India :) I love this berries with salt and a little cayenne pepper.

I take about 3-4 pieces (around 5g) of raw, dried Indian Gooseberry whenever I have heartburn. It seems to be fast acting and I usually get relief within 15-20 minutes.
