I was sick the entire time, I found that salty foods (such a potato chips, etc) really helped sometimes, and I also found that when I drank while or right after eating it made the nausea much worse. Also I found I could keep baby carrots, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and other fresh, uncooked foods down, because even just the smell of food cooking made me sick. I basically lived off of raw veggies, fruit, and microwave dinners, plus red meat..

I threw up the entire pregnancy with my second daughter, and it ended up being gal stones. Let your dr. know.

I am the Mom of 2 and I had morning sickness ALL day LONG till I hit 5 mo.
My doc suggested taking my pernatal vitamin every other day and before I went to bed.
I also had to use suppositories (ick - I know!) for the nausea.

Did you try ginger? Not the ginger chews, or ginger pops. (Ginger-ale contains no ginger at all) Get yourself some powdered ginger and put 1/4 of a teaspoon in with 1 oz of soda (Sprite, 7 up or Ginger-ale.hmmmm) and chug it. It worked miracles for my daughter who suffered terribly for as long as you have. Unfortunately, it only gives temporary relief and you should ask your doctor if s/he would limit the amount of ginger that you could consume in a 24 hour period.

perfectly normal. all of my pregnancies have been different. try to eat small snacks instead of big meals. it may help with the sickness.

Try small but frequent snacks. Pregnant women have lower blood sugar than non-pregnant women. Low blood sugar can cause nausea- and with all the hormone differences it's no wonder the feeling is exaggerated. I used to carry around granola bars in my purse and water to stay hydrated. It really helps! Also, make sure your Prenatal vitamins have a good amount of vitamin B6- that is known to help combat the sickness in many preggie ladies. Hope this helps!
