For me, if I made sure I had a small amount of protein with whatever I ate (example crackers with peanut butter)...I did better. I also tried to eat a small amount every few hours even though I wasn't hungry to I wouldn't have an empty stomach which made me feel sicker. I hope you feel better soon!

I know that feeling.. My first 3 months were pretty rough. Although I never actually puked, I always felt like I was going to. What really helped me was Lemonheads!! I don't know if it was the tartness or what, but they seemed to do the trick. Hope that can help.

I had the same problem right throughout my pregnancy - although you may get over yours at tround the 3 month mark like others apparently do. Only advice I have is *listen to your body*. You will learn what foods/drinks sit better in your stomach and which ones make you feel worse. Do whatever it takes to keep liquids and calories down and supplement with multivit pills (also experiment with different multivits as some will make you feel worse than others). I hope this is a passing phase for you but if not - at least you wont have to worry about losing the baby weight later :)

I had 5 months of sickness on my 1st one. I used to eat ginger biscuits then snack little and often. Ginger helps relieve sickness. xx

I had 24 hour sickness for 9 months with both of my pregnancies. When I tell you that I tried EVERYTHING, that is an understatement. The only relief I had was after I gave birth. Some women just suffer more than others. Good luck and I will pray for you. I heard that doctors could give you a medication to help...try talking to your doctor.

What I found that really helped me was wearing sea sick arm bands. You can get them at CVS or Walgreens. They are bands that go around your wrist with little plastic balls on them. The balls push your pressure points on your wrist and creates a sense of equilibrium and helps keep you from feeling sick. I had "morning" sickness for 6 months with my daughter and those made the difference! I also snacked often, eating about 5 small meals during the day to help from feeling faint.

Some fresh ginger tea. Get a ginger root, grate a liitle very fine, sqeeze a few drops of the juice into cup poor in hot water. This also very good for your blood circulation and cleansing of toxins. good all round. some say it works (did for me, although my sickness was very mild) others say it doesn't. give it a try, even if it helps only a little thats something and it's good for you and bubs regardless.

I was in the same boat as you, one of the reasons I had a feeling I was pregnant was because I was so sick! I tried everything, the pressure bracelets, regalin, vitamin B12, ginger root you name I probably tried it. My doctor finally put me on Zofran (a nausea med given to chemo patients) when I started losing weight. The zofran worked for awhile, but if I'd miss a dose-I took it every 4 hours-the nausea and vomitting hit. I had to take it for 7 months :( I wouldn't say it worked 100% of the time, but it took the edge off for awhile so I could at least go to work.

Have you tried lightly snacking? With both my kids i felt ill if I was even slightly hungry. So I found it best to have something on hand all the time and to eat 6 meals a day instead of 3 so I wasn't going so long between meals.
