DESPERATE: Morning (all day) Sickness relief!!!!

I found what helped is not to get hungry. Even if I ate something small like a piece of toast or some almonds it helped fill my stomach enough that I didn't feel sick. Drinking lots of water helped too.
Although I didn't feel bad enough to try it, I've heard ginger is really good for morning sickness. Like ginger ale or candied ginger pieces. I hope you feel better soon.

cut back in dairy ,try reduce fat intake mainly saturated fats and eat smaller portions . calcium is important so if u can try replace it with flavoured soy products and alway try keep water and fresh fruit intake up. i was plagued with cronic ilness up till 4 months then again at 28 weeks till 33 weeks i was lucky i was studying nutrition and my tutors gave me this advise seriously it works and reduces the seedyness alot im now 35 weeks and slowly increasing my dairy again and so far so good its just taking it slowly and re introducing it into ur daily intake. hope this helps (CHOC SOY MIK IS YUMMY)
This is our first and i was nausuated my first trimester. I ate pretzels all day long, now i cant stand to look at one..lol..and drank ginger ale..seem to help a little. I had never heard about the Preggy Pops but when we plan our next child i am going to look into those. Thanks and good luck

i had morning sickness every single day for the first 3 months of this pregnancy and the preggie pops worked like a charm for me along with peppermint candies and chewing some kind of wintergreen or peppermint gum... hope it works for you!

I'm sure you've heard all of this before. Grazing helps. Keeping your blood sugar up makes a difference. Most people are sick in the morning as their blood sugar is lowest, then don't improve much because they are too ill to eat. Have a snack before bed. Once your up start eating & sit for 5 mins after eating to let it settle. I find rushing around getting ready makes me feel worse, so I get up a little earlier so I am not rushed. In my 1st pregnancy when I was working in an office I found it easy to have snacks on my desk & graze constantly between meals. When I was really bad I took Travel "Ginger" tablets. They are natural & I found they helped. Good luck, it's no fun at all.

I wound up having my OB prescribe both Zofran and Promethazine. The Zofran's an every 8 hour, $10/pill med, and the Promethazine's an every 12 hours MUCH cheaper pill. I found the Promethazine to work wonderfully for me after I got over the slight "loopy" feeling, and it gave me the all day relief I needed, whereas I'd have to much on crackers or candies or something similar ALL DAY LONG otherwise.

I had all day sickness with my first for the first 2 months, and with pregnancy #2 I am still having issues with at 3 1/2 months. I've found that peppermint hard candies work in a pinch. Plus they help with the bad breath from being sick at your stomach. Cheap and easy way to relieve it. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Ugh! I so know where you are at because I had the same thing and it lasted for 18 weeks. After week 7 I finally went to my doctor for an anti-motion sickness medicine called Antivert it comes in a generic form as well so the prescription is cheap. It is along the same line as Bonine. Check with your doctor to see if this would work for you as well. My doctor's prescription was 1 pill 3 times a day though I only needed to take one a day because it lasted all day for me.

A nice healthy way I found was to have washed grapes in a little container on my desk, which I nibbled on continuously... I had the same problem, I was constantly sick (bowing to the porcelain queen quite regularly)! I found keeping fresh fruit with me at all times and nibbling on this during the day was my saving grace! I couldn't stomach crackers or anything sweeter than fruit (so the ginger nuts were out!). Good luck. I hope my 2p helps!

eventhough my mother in law says its in my head (laugh!) i had morning, noon, and night sickness with my first for 5 months straight and now again with #2, no matter what i did! a friend turned me onto Preggie Pops. They're all natural lollipops and i'm not sure how they work, but they are a life savior for me this time! i pull one out when i first feel nauscious and it takes it away by the time i'm done with it. i get them at babies r us, but i'm sure other places sell them too.
