My OB says that having symptoms like that means that the hormones are doing their job and that you are having a very strong, healthy baby. And sure enough, when my son was born, he is the strongest baby I ever saw. At 5 months, he is still strong and kinda ahead of the curve. I know that doesn't help with your symptoms, but it may make you feel better about how you are feeling. It means everything is good!!!

ok i had this problem with my daughter. i can only suggest a few things being that everyone is different. keep some crackers with you believe it or not having an empty stomach can make u even more sick. try to avoid really heavy greasy foods. also try to avoid smells that make you naustious. dont over eat... there is a moment where you feel so sick all the time and then suddenly you get that moment where omg ur just starving. then you benge cuz its been so long since youve eaten with an actual appetite and trust me youll regret that too. try to avoid moving to quickly such as if your laying down dont just jump up! drink lots and lots of water. ( This does help) it keeps you from getting dehydrated and it does so many things for you. i know everyone hates hearing that water does the trick trust me i hated hearing it but it really does help. remember to take ur prenatal vitamins you dont necessarliy have to take them in the morning you can try to find a certain time of the day that you know you can keep them down. and try not to get in cars right after you have eaten. if i think of anything else that might help ill let you know. hope this helps

i had really bad morning sickness all day everyday too. i talked to my doctor, and it turns out that i actually had a hyperactive thyroid. other than taking meds for nausea, i would always eat saltine crackers, bread or popcorn before bed. it helped calm the sickness down in the morning and push back the time that i actually started to feel sick. ginger ale is always a great thing too!

OMG...... I TOTALLY had that with BOTH pregnancies.... I used to laugh at the whole "morning" sickness.... and call it the "all day long" sickness!! I totally hear ya... i'd be interested to hear what some other replies are and see how many other people had the "all day" sickness!! I know it doesn't feel like it right now, but it WILL end and then you'll have the most beautiful gift this world has to offer!!! Hang in there!

Have you tried the "Sea-band"? It's made for nausea. You can wear them anytime and it doesn't have any type of drug in it. It uses the pressure points in your wrists, to subdue the sickness. I haven't tried it, but a friend did, and it worked. Another friend used them for sea-sickness, and he said it was a life-saver! Give it a whirl! They sell them at drug stores. I'm not sure if Wal-Mart has them. I know our local one didn't. Good luck!

I have to put my two cents in! Like everyone said, each woman (and each pregnancy is different). I'm on my third pregnancy, which gave me the most trouble with morning sickness - up until 15-16 weeks and it's cropped up now and again during my third trimester though not as bad. At the worst peak, all I could stomach, even though it sounds unappetizing, was lemonade and plain chips. Before it reached that point, water made me sick so to keep hydrated I made cold herbal teas (mint's supposed to help if you can stomach it). I made it very light so that the flavor was just enough to cover the water flavor but not so much it gave me trouble. As a side note, for my first pregnancy I had to eat small, frequent meals with no junk at all and for my second, the only thing that kept bad morning sickness at bay was a certain fast food burger, fries and lemonade (although other meat/potatoes seemed ok too). If you're that far along and losing weight, I'm sure your doctor will be discussing it with you if she/he hasn't already. My sister-in-law had to start taking medication for hers, it was so bad throughout. Keep looking forward to after the sickness and your baby!

I got alot of the same remedies from people that I talked to when I was pregnant - I was sick from about 6weeks right though into labor. Alot of what was recommended to me actually made me more nauseated. I found that the only things that I could tolerate WAS greasy foods and coke (i never drank the stuff til then). My only advice would be to try everything once and if it works go with it! I got lectures a plenty about my diet when I was going through it but my response was better burgers and coke than in a hospital with an IV.

eat small frequent meals, if you eat to big of meals, your stomach can not hold it as you are running out of room now. think like only 6-8 snacks a day instead of meals, eat every two hours

I have two children, I was sick 24/7 with both for the entire pregnancy. The second one was worse, I developed gestational diabetes and took medication for the vomiting, but still got sick. Some women are fortunate to not be sick, others, not so lucky. Yes, it's absolutely miserable, but you'll get through it! There is one good thing, as long as your sick you know things are going well, I had a miscarriage and didn't immediately know until my 12 week ultrasound, however about 4 weeks before I suddenly wasn't getting sick...Hope you fell better.

Oh how i empahise!! The challenge of 'having to eat for the baby' and 'feeling like something but not knowing what, figuring it out, then feeling sick looking at it' is a hard one!!! I felt sick for 4 and a half months and my partner used to give me a glass of juice and a piece of toast as soon as i opened my eyes and i found it helped that first blah feeling. Also i drank ginger beer (if you can stomach it) and took natural morning sickness pills from Healtheries, which just has about 90% ginger in it. Don't worry it will pass...good luck! :)

i too had sickness all through both of my pregnancies, you don't think it will end but it does, hang on in there,don't think anything helps to be honest, if its really bad there is an injection you can have after 20 weeks, ask your doctor

I feel so sorry for you, i had morning sickness all the way through up until I gave birth. I was one of the unlucky ones. I was put on a tablet from my doc that doesn't harm bubz. It really works with the nausea. I'm sorry i dont remember the name but i know it starts with an M. sorry i couldn't b much help. Good Luck

How far along are you ? with me I was sick all day everyday! I actually lost about 12 pounds.... Around 16 weeks it got a lot better and what helped for me is to eat little crackers and small things just to keep something in my stomach. I am sure you have tried lots of things and sometimes nothing will help don't worry it will end...
