The motion-sickness wrist bands were the only thing that worked for me. You can get them @ Walmart in the Pharmacy section usually with all the motion sickness meds.

I think the remedies differ from woman to woman. Just try lots of things and find what works for you. Nothing really worked for me until I got put on Ondesteron, which is a common subistitute for Zofran. Also, find out what smells set you off and really really make sure your house is free of rotten leftover food, because I found out the hard way, the smell of rotten food can make you sick even if you don't think you can smell it or think you're used to it. It can be as simple as taking out the trash, or something deeper to which I say just try different foods or drinks and see what works.

Ginger helped me - ginger biscuits, gingerbeer, ginger tea. Sorry to hear about your house burning down. Hope you sort that out. xx

I had morning sickness from day one till about the endof my fourth month. Seems funny to say but I lived of pepermint tea and soda crackers. They were the only thing that I kept down at all. It will stop eventually..hang in there.

Keep some crackers before you get out of bed, make sure that you are snacking between every hour and two hours, drink warm tea and honey as far as being tired all day long your iron could be low or you could be anemic make sure you are taking your prenatals they make a world of difference, I know they may make you feel bad/nauseous or even throw up but give it about two weeks and it will get better! Good luck!

YIKES!!! Get OFF the meds!
eat a little something every hour at least .. if nothing more than a slice of wheat bread ... and handful of walnutes, etc., BUT be sure to drink water or milk or real juice for nourishment.
Eating/drinking will neutralize all those stomach juices that are making you sick -

Coke syrup, the sweetness calms your tummy and you may even be able to eat a little bit just a few minutes afterward. A little old lady taught me to use it when I was prego with my first and couldn't hold anything down. You can get it usually in small amounts in the pharmacy section of your market, use by the spoonful or pour over a little ice. It got me through 4 pregnancies and I even use it for the kids now when they have stomach bugs.

Little red and white peppermint candies. You get more morning sickness when you are dehydrated too. Really, the peppermints work. I didn't care for the tea. Good Luck. Only a couple more weeks of this and you should be okay.

I had bad morning sickness everyday and night for the first 6 months of pregnancy! I feel for you because I know how awful you feel... Try a Ginger biscuit before you get out of bed, and peppermint tea is good! Also dry rice crispies worked for me... Hope you get over it sooon!!

Eating protein often was the only thing that seemed to help me. Peanut butter on apples, nutty bars were easy to grab and keep in my office drawer. I've heard of women carrying around cooked hamburger in baggies.The key was to eat it before the dry heaving begins. Also, I wore those bracelets.

I am in the same boat, I am 11 weeks pregnant and pretty sick. Nothing works for me, I am even on prescription drugs but that does not help so I feel your pain.

my prenatal vitamins were making me sick. i had a 3 week sample packet of a Rx prenatal vit. never had morning sickness. when i finished those, i just went to the store and got some OTC. morning sickness like no other! i called my dr and got prescribed the sample i was taking. the moment i stopped taking the OTC ones and started taking the Rx ones, i was morning sickness free for the entire pregnancy!!



So, could be something as simple as that! i know everyone is different, but every little bit helps! =)

There are a couple kinds of medicines to help morning sickness, one of them made it worse for me, and the other really helped! Which kind have you tried? Phenergan worked amazing for me, I hope you feel better soon! I remember those days well, good luck!

Sour candy helped me! It seems weird, but I read on a parenting site when I was pregnant that sour candy, lemons, limes and/or anything sour could help ease morning sickness. So I gave it a try and it worked most of the time! Also, warm semi-flat ginger ale helped also...ginger is a good antidote for nausea in general...that also helped me...but let it go a little flat and get a little warm so the carbonation doesn't put gas in your stomach which can make you more nauseated.

I was pretty sick from 5th to 14th week. I hope it will pass for your soon. Personally, I'd steer clear of prescriptions, unless you're throwing up all day every day and you aren't gaining weight and your bloods are not good. It's really vile, but you might be lucky enough to be average and have it finish soon, then smooth sailing until you're HUGE and start feeling the other end of the pregnancy. :)

I nibbled water crackers, salty ones, and sipped Fruit Cup cordial. I ate whatever didn't make me nausiated even thinking about it, and that was usually carbs, salty carbs, fries or wedges with gravy. I worked in the city and knew about every chip shop withing a km radius . hahaha I kept horizontal as much as possible until about 10am, but when not possible, it was the car rubbish bin, by the side of the highway. Blurgh!!! and then more crackers.



You can also buy motion-sickness wrist bands that activate a pressure point in your wrist that is supposed to reduce nausea, and I have heard of a few people whe this has worked for. Check your chemist.

Peppermint is usually helpful for nausea, but it's also very strong and may backfire depending on why you are nauseous. It made me hurl with both my pregancies, but it never hurts to try it.
With my first, cinnamon and just having something in my mouth helped a lot. I chewed a lot of gum and sucked on a lot of atomic fireballs.
With my second, nothing really made it better, but the smell of ginger made it less bad.
Most people will tell you crackers--The smell of a saltine had me running to hurl with both girls, but again it never hurts to try.
The important thing is to not let the nausea dehydrate you. Try several liquids until you find the one that makes you least sick and keep it with you all the time. Take a sip as often as your stomach can bear it. Even if it's something unhealthy--mountain dew is less bad for you than needing an IV.
Good luck

ginger, mostly ginger beer helped for me and my cousin when we had morning sickness, but it wasn't as bad as you are discribing, just think only another few weeks and it should start to get better.

I didn't know this and wish I had been told during my pregnancies, but supposedly Gravol helps with morning sickness and it is safe to take during pregnancy. A doctor just told me this about a week ago.

Peppermint tea helps the tummy, (even just an upset tummy) Saltines, Preggie Pops (these are awesome they helped a ton with my daughter, just google them they are found many places online) make sure you stay hydrated, and make sure you are eating small meals I hope it goes away soon.
