Take "no9 to morning sickness tea". I was coping with severe sickness up to 11th week then this tea soothed me from hell-like nausea and morning sickness.

Real ginger works for some people, but also try peppermint and spearmint flavored things [like ice cream & lifesavers hard candy].

Ginger beer (it's not alcolholic, think rootbeer & has way more ginger than most otter products. Sea bands. Acupuncture (look for community acupuncture if price is an issue). Good luck

I tried all the usual remedies for the nausea but ginger/crackers/whatever didnt work for me.I dont recommend what I ended up eating for the majority of my pregnancy (burgers chips and coke as they were the only things that seemed to stay down more often than not) What I can recommend is staying away from acidic foods as they did make the nausea worse (and hurt to throw up). I found soft drinks were good because they didnt feel heavy in my stomach. I personally recommend experimenting with foods and drinks and find out what works for you. Hope your feeling better soon though x x x

I sucked on mints and took ginger capsules, which you can find at health food stores. I would try that before any medication, unless you cant keep anything down and it sounds like you are. Crackers and small meals never did much for me.

Aw bless your heart, i know how it goes. Was sick from the day the test read positive until the morning my son was born (everyday, ALLLLL day). Honestly, there really is nothing that I found to help, and I tried it all. I eventually accepted it as my routine; wake up, go to bathroom, throw up, attempt to fix a piece of toast, throw up before it even pops back up, etc.

Eventually I was given Phenergan (Sp?). Helped a little, made me very sleepy to the point of not being able to function. Talk to your OBGYN about that maybe he could prescribe you that.

Crackers in your night table, that's just a lie women who never had morning sickness tell you. UGH

Diclectin is one of the most recomended perscriptions for morning sickness. I would far recomend this to anyone over Reglan, there are just way to many permanent side effects to this drug.

My doctor told me to take a half of a unisom tablet with my prenatal vitamin. It worked for me and some other friends. It only works with unisom tablets. Something in the unisom and B vitamin help the nausea subside. good luck!!

protein is better than carbs. i lived off of smoothies for a while with added soy protein (but couldn't handle anything with citrus). staying active and getting some exercise will make things better too. seems like it would do the opposite but it does work.

I was sick all day long too when I was pregnant with my son, so I feel you. Hot tea, decaf of course, helped me a lot. Not the fruity kind. My favorite is green tea, that helped a lot. Good luck with yours :)

If you are truly unable to keep anything down there are meds that your doc can prescribe...phenergan, reglan or zofran. As for dietary fixes...you need to experiment and see what works for you...and know that it can change form day to day. For me, slurpees were a god-send...LIVED on them and italian ice up until 24 weeks. (Crackers and gingerale just made me hurl). Regular Coke, over a lot of ice was also my friend the entire pregnancy. It really varies from person to person.

I found B12 vitamins helped me with my nausea - it didn't get rid of it, I still felt off, but I was able to eat. This doesn't work for everyone, I guess only works if you have a deficeny.

I always had some hard candy to suck on. It helped. Minty always helped me but my friend had the sugar free kind and it helps her.

I agree with the ginger but I also suggest chewable vitamin C. Just like people suggest fruit but I could get it down and then the nausea would lessen.

Ginger root. As well, there's a prescription you can get for morning sickness. Ask your doctor about it.

I agree with ginger. I ate ginger snaps or ginger biscuits that we have over here in the UK and they worked a treat. Once out of pure desperation I even pinched some of my mums crystallized stem ginger...urgh!!! It's a required taste in crystallized form, but definitely works. If you go to a health food shop they may have it in other forms that is suitable for you.

Agreed, I would not have made it if not for Zofran. The pills weren't helping since I threw them up so they put a pump in my leg. Not the most fun thing, but I got to enjoy food and even water again! If it's that extreme talk to your doctor and ask for Zofran.

When I had nausea my doctor suggested ginger. It has natural anti nausea agents and was the only thing that could keep me for getting sick all day long. I suggest getting a ginger tea.

My doctor put me on meds to help with my "all day sickness". I was actually loosing almost everything I ate though, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I can't remember the name of the medication, but it was perscription.

Good luck:0)
