you can take a hankercheif with you everywhere you go, put a lemon scent, or a real lemon juice in it and let it dry, when things start to get outta hand, pull it out and stick your nose in it. totally works, calms and relaxes those gagging muscles. lol

also, take water/gatorade EVERYWHERE you go, it has helped me A LOT!

i used the motion sickness bracelets...i looked like a total dork for 7 months but it was wayyy better than puking my guts out 24/7. they dont have any chemicals or scents and are used by pushing on an accupunture pressure point in your wrist. worked great for me. after my dr gave every prescription possible and none of them worked that was a last resort and i wish it had been first.

I was like that too in the first 4-5 months of my pregnancy and I was prescribed Diclectin and it helped me out a lot. I think that is what got me through the nights and days of my first 4-5 months of my pregnancy.

If you can handle the smell/taste of mints, I suggest trying those. I was the same way, even my bfs deodorant would send me running for the bathroom. My birth mom who used to be a nurse suggested I try mints, and they worked! Otherwise, crackers to soothe your stomach. Sea bands are said to help too. Make sure to never let your stomach stay empty. And talk to your doctor. There is medication out there to help.

keep your belly full all of the time. eat eat eat. and any type of tart hard candy you can suck on helps, sour apple, lemon, lime. Preggie Pops or Preggie Drops help a lot. Also, Ginger Beer, not ginger ale, or Ginger candies. morning sickness happens when you don't have enough protein in your body so keep eating!!!

HI Eileen,
Woolworths select brand ginger stem biscuits were the only thing that helped in my 3 pregnancies... DO NOT LET YOUR TUMMY GET EMPTY, so have a biscuit every hour...and keep them on your bedside so you can have one when you first wake before you even get out of bed... Good luck :)

I dont think there is a way to train yourself not to vomit at different smells.
The only thing I could do was learn what my body did and didn't like and i tried to avoid as much as I could.
Lying down and eating crackers or plain bread helped and so did cranberry juice! I have heard that cranberry juice is good for morning sickness.
I had constant vomiting for 2 1/2 weeks straight, its horrible :(

I'm 18.5 weeks pregnant with baby #2 for us. With my first daughter and again this time around I have been diagnosed with Hyperesmia, which is a fancy name for atrocious "morning sickness". My doctor prescribed me phernergan as I have lost 30lbs since becoming pregnant. It's not that I don't want to eat or aren't hungry, I'm very hungry but nothing stays where I put it, not even water. I also use the acupressure motion sickness bands & make sure to keep ginger ale (the kind made with real ginger, the organic store or whole foods market is the best place to find it) & hard candies with citric acid in them on hand at all times. I have been feeling better, but still not gaining any weight. There is one thing I have been unable to get away from & that is an awful coworker that burns popcorn in the office microwave religously every day at 3pm. As soon as I find out who it is, I swear I'm gonna punch her in the nose!!

ooh the mind is a powerful thing girl! We can make ourselves sick just by believing we are going to be sick. my doctor said try ginger, or they have this wrist bands that are supposed to help

I've heard some say that peppermint oil is bad during pregnancy, but I use Young Living Essential Oils Peppermint and it was FABULOUS! Either just smelling it, or putting a drop on my tongue (or back of the hand and licking it off, though you'll want to keep lotion handy as this dries out your skin) and I also would put 2 drops in my 16 oz. hot chocolate in the morning and mmmm it was yummy. And it's so good for you! This kept my nausea very mild.

ask your doctor about diclectin... i was very sick for the first 5 months and it helped alot. it is pretty expensive thou and you have to get it in your system. basically its a b vitamin complex. so if you can keep vitamin b down that might help. i used to take a children's gravel on the really rough days and take diclectin 3 times a day. if i were you i would look into it for sure, the same company also makes pregvit, which is a wonderful prenatal vitamin. best of wishes to you. hopefully it will pass soon :)

I get SO aggitated with people who seem to bathe in cologne ! Even lemon has been sending me to the trash can or toilet . So far nothing I have tried has helped . Dr gave me RX meds , which so far has been the only thing to help , and only once has it been totally disregarded by my morning sickness and that time I think it was a bug any way .
This is baby #6 , my advice is try anything and everything , also try to avoid smells if at all poss . I do not think there is any way to train yourself , even mind over matter does not seem to work for much of any one .
You are not alone !!!!
They do have new candies out for morning sickness , but I have heard many women having no luck with them and I myself have found .... if it is starting to happen , candies just make it more intense and quicker .

Ask your OBGYN what they would suggest !

The only thing that I found to work was stopping and breathing slow and deep breaths until the feeling passed. But sometimes even that didn't work!
