drink water with ginger pieces inside all day long. ask pharmacist for tablets used for insomnia, something inside them stops the puking, but not the nausea too much. also take homeopathic tablets, helped me...
good luck

Don't take any medicines without your OB Dr. permission but try a clear liquid diet of clear chicken broth, 7-up and plain saltine crackers for the first 24 hr. then if you can hold that down then gradually increase your food intake to to a full liquid diet of 7-up and cream soups, clear jello and crackers thenif you can handle that then move on to solid soft foods no spicy foods for awhile. the cause of morning sickness is your baby is growing a head full of hair and that is usually it. I didn't have morning sickness but I had it at night but not as bad as you have. Everybody is different so there are no 2 pregnancies alike. Let me know if this helps you. My son is now 16 years old. and my only one. Ellen C. Archie, Mo.

I had Zofran when I was pregnant, and I was put in the hospital because I could not stop throwing up, Zofran helped so much, it was the only medicine that stopped it..hope you are feeling better soon!

Marmalade is a natural anti nausea substance or pepermint tea settles the stomach. The old adage is crackers of course. If these don't work ask your doctor or pharmasist.

I was so sick that I lost 15 lbs in the first trimester. Anti-nausial (sp??) meds just gave me other side effects that I didn't like. The nausea was especially bad right at the end of the first trimester. I read somewhere that a lot of us make too much of the pregnancy hormone especially right around the end of that first trimester as the baby's umbilical cord is "hooking up." Make black beans from the dry lentils. You can get bags for around $2 in the bean section at your local supermarket. I tried all of the other dry lentils and the only one that worked was black beans.... and no the canned ones didn't work. Follow the directions on the dry lentil bag for soaking them overnight and boiling them for almost 2 hours. Eat a couple tablespoons whenever you're not feeling so great. The black beans soak up that extra hormone. It helped me immensely in my next two pregnancies. I still got sick, but not nearly as bad. Use your favorite spice to liven them up a bit. I still eat them regularly now because I love them so much!

Hi Keshia,
Have you tried eating soda crackers at bedtime and before you get out of bed in the morning?
As far as flu season goes, orange and deep leafy green veggies are filled with antioxidants. So water, fruits and veggies, and chicken soup are natural sources safe to take when you are pregnant.
Hope this helps.
Terri, RN

Emex Syrup works instantly and does not make you drowsy. I lived on it during my pregnancy.

Chamomile teas, burnt toast ( needs to be black reaaly, the charcoal helps) and ginger. I used to make a ginger tea with sugar and drank it hot or cold.

ginger ale works wonders. Sip it slowly. Peppermints also work. Be very careful you don't get yourself dehydrated through all this.

Ginger tablets help with both problems as well as Ginger tea which you can get both at your local Albertsons and tablets at same place in vitamin section. The tea taste NASTY!!! but it really helps and I have also found that sipping coke a cola works wonders too...Hope you are feeling better soon

i lived on pickled ginger and white rice in the early days of my pregnancy. You can also get ginger capsules at the market. If it's morning sickness, try putting a bite of cheese and a couple of crackers in your mouth before you even move your head in the morning. put it next to you before you go to bed. Good luck!

it sounds like you have the flu. stay hydrated and follow a brat diet for theother end. but yes you can take reglan or zophran for morning sickness if its really bad. your doctor has to prescribe it for you. i have to take reglan or i dehydrate quickly. but if its the flu then it will pass. either way feel better.

There are two things on the market. Peggy Pops and B-natal. Both are all natural and work.

Ginger ale is suppose to help. I hate the stuff; but ginger will settle your stomach, if you can stand the taste of the stuff.

I took two tablespoons of peanut butter before bed & that helped. But if you're throwing up & can't stop then don't take anything for an hour, then take a sip of water, wait 5 minutes, and if it stays down take another sip of water. Do that for the next hour and then SLOWLY try other fluids and gradually crackers. Treat your stomach like it's made of glass and too much of anything will break it.

sounds to me like you have a stomach bug, think you will need to see a doctor. there are lots of bugs going around at the minute, our school has loads of children off with the same symptoms, hope you feel better soon xxx

My doctor told me to try unisom, it works for a lot of people, especially when sick at night. She also told me to try chewing a minty gum, which really helps me, even when I am not pregnant. I know it sounds strange, but it is nice to such an easy relief.

Root beer for nausea.... our whole house has strep throats right now... it's going around... you might want to get a culture and see what you are dealing with.

I am a mom of 5 who suffered morning sickness from beginning until delivery with all 5. The best thing to do even though it sounds wrong is eat. Keeping food in your stomach does help. Eating toast or crackers at night helps too. I took Diclectin for my last 3 pregnancies which helped. I kept a ziploc baggie with cut up lemons in it for road trips. I would open it and smell it. Somehow it made me feel better. And I ate a lot of ginger. Gingersnaps, gingerale and ginger tea. Being sick with this is actually a good sign of a healthy pregnancy. Good luck, hang in there. And don't be a superhero. When someone offers to help take them up on it. Also cold food like cereal doesn't smell and seems to go down better.

I had hyperemesis with my last two babies and Zofran every 6 hours is the ONLY thing the seemed to work for me. After your flu resolves if you still have horrible morning sickness I would ask for some more. Insurance companies never want to pay for a high quantity but your doctor can write a letter to the insurance company or pharmacy benefit manager stating that you have to take it every 8 hours and they will cover it. Otherwise most insurance companies will only cover like 6 to 9 per fill! Good luck!

I know you will think I'm crazy but try it...drink a Coke, not generic but the real thing coca~cola. Just sip on it after a while it will calm down you stomach.

If you can't keep anything down, GO TO THE DOCTOR OR THE HOSPITAL. Since you are pregnant, you cannot afford to be dehydrated.
For bad nausea (so bad that you can't keep anything down), ask your OB for Zofran or something like that.
DRINK DRINK DRINK. even if it means sucking on ice chips or even pedialyte pops, do it.

ONLY PROBLEM WITH COKE IS THAT I DEVELOPED A VERY SEVERE KIDNEY/URINARY TRACT INFECTION DRINKING THAT TRYING TO KEEP THE NAUSEA DOWN WHILE PREGNANT, SO U MAY WANT TO BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THAT.

Whenever I am sick to my stomach, which was recent as I just got over that flu, I drink or take sips of coke. I know everyone says 7-up and ginger ale is better, but I will puke if I drink those. ( if I am not sick I actually like both) Take something for the aches, such as tylenol. There are drugs to stop the diaherra and vomiting, but you need to check with your doctor first. Crackers are great, especially plain salttines. And as others have said, rest.

PUT A PEPPERMINT IN YOUR MOUTH FOR MORNING SICKNESS NAUSEA, HOLD IT TO THE SIDE IN YOUR MOUTH AS LONG AS YOU CAN. THIS REALLY DOES HELP. SORRY ITS PAST SUNDAY BUT IT STILL CAN HELP AS LONG AS THE MORNING SICKNESS LAST, THE DOCTOR CAN ALSO GIVE YOU SUPPOSITORIES LIKE I HAD TO TAKE IF IT IS VERY SEVERE

O- my, I would suggest crackers and small sips of ginger ale sweetie. Lay down as much as possible. Walking around and doing things only makes things worse. Get someone to help if possible so you dont have to move. Tea and dry toast works also~ My gramma use to tell me that!

Pickle juice works great foe nausea. I know it sounds horrible but, the vinegar in it will settle an upset stomach. I had one of my pregnat employees try it and it helped her immensely.

I use B-Natal suckers that have B-6 in them and they help a LOT. My doctor recommended them to me for my morning sickness. You can get them at Baby's R Us. They are not cheap but worth it. I also used the preggie pops from there which are a little cheaper.

If it continues, you will need to either go to the Emergency Room or call your doctor. That happened to me with my first child also and I had to be hospitalized due to dehydration. Not even water would stay down. I don't mean to frighten you but I went through the same thing and it was not fun but you may need medical care.

I had really bad morning sickness with most of my pregnancies. My Dr. gave me a prescrition for zofran. It help quite a bit. The only thing is that not all insurance will cover it. So if you can get a prescrption for it I would check with your insurance.

I had a flu with my last one at seven months. My doctor sent me to the hospital for IV fluids when I was having too many braxton hicks contractions because I was dehydrated. But after that I was much better.
