I am 28 weeks pregnant with my second and have been hospitalized 3 times for extremely bad morning sickness and was proscribed phenergan. The meds help me keep some food and liquid down but at night I tend to get worse and worse... I have tried mint, ginger, teas, crackers, hard candy not eating for 4- 5 hours before going to bed but it seems like no matter what I do as soon as I lay down I feel like I will be ill. I havent been getting much sleep and my doctor doesnt have any more suggestions. Does anyone have any good ways to fix nausea? PLEASE

I took a tums before each meal. I also ate smaller meals through out the day instead of three big ones. What helped my night time nausea was animal crackers and coke. It also helped to sleep more propped up.

The story of both of my pregnancies!!!! Lemon helped me a lot! Lemonade, lemon heads, lemon starbursts, lemon water.....it all helped. Also, I found that not eating was what caused my vomiting and made it worse. Have you tried nibbling some saltined right before laying down? Also, the phenergan knocked me out! Have you tried taking it right before bedtime? Finally, with my first the sickness was so severe that the phenergan didn't work and they had to give me Compazine. It's a little stronger than the phenergan and it worked! I was discharged within 4 hours of my first dose!!!

I was also having it bad at night with my son. I was given Zofran, it helped greatly. I took phenergan, but it wasnt enough for me. Zofran is a bit stronger and you can get the one that disssolves under your tongue. Ask your doctor for that prescription. Good luck

Diet Ginger Ale is a pregnant woman's best friend, I've found! eating carbs in the morning (bread, bagels, pasta) mixed with proteins (egg beaters, etc.) and drinking No to morning sickness tea!

If I'm feeling unwell I try some mint chewing gum. It generally works but be careful you don't want to end up with diarrhea.

Sleep in a recliner and see a chiropractor... It might not completely eliminate the nausea but it helped me a lot with acid reflux during pregnancy! Good luck
