I'm about 6 weeks into my second pregnancy & it's the complete opposite of my first! My first was an absolute breeze...almost too easy lol now it's way worse. I wake up feeling sick to my stomach and it comes and goes alll day long. I'm literally slacking so much in my housework because everytime I get up to do something I start feeling sick & dizzy. I have an 18 month old which makes it even harder...I can't relax whenever I want etc. Lol I can't even look at raw meat without repeatedly gagging which makes my fiance suffer because now he has to come home from work & cook his own supper.. I need help, even something simple that can ease it for a little bit so I can get some stuff done!

Sea-sickness bands (in the pharmacy department of stores) and sour candies.

Walking.....I know that you may not feel up to doing any exercising, but if you can get yourself movtivated enough to get going you will feel SO much better afterwards. When I got preg. with my third I was training for a walking marathon....I am not one of those people that like to exercise or that are in the best of shape either. Walking is about the only exercise I enjoy doing.....a brisk walk. I would usually get the "morning sickness" feeling in the evenings. If I would get out and go for a good walk I would always feel so much better.

Sleep, hydration, food ( in small amounts...I was told "bland", but eventually had to break down to whatever would work at the moment). My OB prescribed Phenergan and Zofran, but I didn't take either one. I used the Pepto Bismol tablets and Tums. My MS lasted until around 16 weeks, but that's pretty much what I did to pull through. Good luck!

Eat smaller meals or snack more frequently, even if you are not hungry. Don't ever over eat, just have a small amount. Drink ginger ale or eat some ginger biscuits. Have something to eat like dry crackers before you even get out of bed in the morning, it helps with the blood sugar levels. Eat plain dry food like crackers and plain potatoes etc. Keep yourself hydrated but don't drink to much it could make the vomiting worse. If you are really struggling go see the doctor, there is medication that can help. With my first i was sick till about 12 weeks, with my second it was 13 weeks and this time with my third it was 17 weeks. I found that soda water would help me feel better as it was plain and bubbly so i could burp and feel better. Good luck.

Eating less at a time more often in the day helps so you are not with an empty stomach. Drinking ginger ale helps too if it agrees with you.

If it is totally unbearable and you can't keep anything down, there is a medication your doctor can prescribe for you.

i hate to tell you, but everyone is different, and sometimes it never subsides! i had no issues at all with my sons pregnancy, i felt wonderful the whole tiime. with my daughters pregnancy last year, i threw up just about every meal the entire pregnancy. i felt awful the whole time, in pain all the time. hungry but afraid to eat because i would throw up with such force that it hurt! talk to your ob or midwife and see if they have any suggestions. mine simply told me that unfortunately, nothing was working and the baby was growing just fine, so i just had to deal with it. as a nurse i know that most women with morning sickness see it sudside by 12 weeks. so hopefully yours will. good luck to you with your pregnancy!
