I am 9 weeks 4 days and I have been going through this my self I actually had to spend 2 days in the hospital because I got so dehydrated. I'm talking sick all day all night and I couldn't even hold down water I am now on medication to keep me from getting sick and it's the only reason I'm not still in the hospital. If you feel your that sick you should call your Dr right away I don't want to see or hear of anyone going through what I have went through.

remember that alot of morning sickness means you have alot of pregnancy hormone, and less chance for a miscarriage. After my doctor told me that, it at least made the vomiting a little better.
Drink tons of water- room temp. if you think you are getting dehydrated.
Gatorade is also good, but once you throw it up, its something you can't go back to.
I ate alot of toast. and bananas. for some reason the bananas were the only thing i never threw up. and since its fruit, my body needed the vitamins.

I was the Exorcist for the first 4 months and I'm talking allllll day, everyyyyyy day. The only thing that worked for me was time. I waited it out cause my body rejected everything. The pregnancy pops helped a little but it was def a rough time.

What helped me was anything minty, a piece of double-mint gum, or peppermint candy. I found this worked the best and quickest for me. My mom also swears crackers help, didn't do much for me but may work for you. Good luck hope you find something.

For the last week I would have it really bad first thing in the morning, I could hold food down but that gaging reflex we have made it hard for me to swollow some foods. I had bought a big bag of dum dum suckers for my daughter val cards for school, I started sucking on the strawberry and sour apple (the only flavors I can handle out of the bag really) and it eased my stomach. I have not started taking prenatal vit yet, but don't think I am going to cause last time they made me sick to my stomach and never took them. The nurse I saw for my clinic test told me that I can take the flinstone vit 2 times a day in place of the prenatal vit.

My doctor suggested a b vitamin supplement in addition to my prenatal. She also mentioned a motion sickness wrist band which uses pressure points rather than drugs. But the only thing I found that worked was sucking on mints. Good luck, I hope it gets better soon.

my doctor tried to have me take a pill but it made it worse. so with me the more anxious and nervous i got the worse my morning sickness was. so i just tried to relax and then id be good for the most part. i was still sick untillike 6 months. and then i had a bit of a relapse at about 8 months because i got way anxious

PS- my doc even prescribed me the pill to make you stop throwing up, can't remember the name.. & that didn't work because I kept throwing that up too. Then tried suppository form-- didn't help either. BUT it def. does not hurt to try!

This is a sucky answer- but nothing really helped me completely. I just took warm baths-- as a matter of a fact, that's the only time I didn't throw up. I lost 25 lbs in the first 5 months of my pregnancy, it was horrible. Also, I just sucked on ice & drank ginger ale- even though I threw that up too!! But trust me, bath tub! It sucks being wet and cold when you get out of the tub, but cha gotta do what cha gotta do. Good luck, I truly feel for you!!!

i had a really bad problem keeping anything down in the beginning of my pregnancy. a friend of mine had had the same problem. she said she had talked to her doctor about it and he prescribed a safe pill for both you and your baby. it coats your stomach so you don't react as much or as bad to anything. just take 2 twis a day. i had talked to my doctor about it and it's also what he prescribed. it worked. it's become my bestfriend through my pregnancy so far. the only things i now have to watch out for is eating too much heavey food like meats. i can eat a little bit of meat at a time just as much as i used to.

the things that helped me is taking my prenatal vitamins at night right before I went to bed, i kept saltines or club crackers next to my bed and I ate a few before I even let my feet hit the floor(in the mornings), also if I would start to feel sick I would drink a coke or sprite and those would always seem to help. Also if nothing seems to help your doctor will probably give you something for the nausia, finigran is really good for that.
hope it helps good luck

ALright my method is a lot easier, I went to CVS or Walgreens and there are this wristbands there are 2 in a box one for each wrist they are called Seaband (sickness bands) they treat motion sickness and morning sickness. They cut my morning sickness (which went ALL DAY LONG) in half or more.

I found that having hard candies around to suck on made me feel better when morning sickness started kicking in...also have crackers and such by your bed to help keep your stomach from getting too empty and help when you wake up...i also drank a ton of powerade and stuff like that to stay hydrated when food didnt seem like a good idea...i've also heard that unisom (1/2 a tablet) can help as well to get rid of some of the morning sickness and help you keep things down. hope that helps!

B6 in small doses (25 mg) also try eating protien, LOTS of protien! my doc told me to eat protien every time I ate anything and it really helped, plus you can find it in all kinds of different stuff. if you need something sweet have a yogurt (lots of protien!) want a small snack have some jerky (TONS of protien there!) also cheese and nuts Peanut butter on some toast was great! it gave me the protien to help fight the morning sickness longer but the toast helped me hold it down right then!

I've heard some moms complain that certain foods made them sick - like anything spicy, etc. One friend of mine discovered that she'd vomit anytime she ate anything with gluten, and she'd never had a problem with it before. If you're just getting sick in the morning without having eaten anything, then keep trying other methods to prevent getting sick.
Good luck, and hope you feel better!
