How do you deal with first trimester sickness and nausea?

I am in my 10th week of my second pregnancy and since the beginning of the second month my stomach is been a mess. I am hungry every 2 hours but it seems like there is nothing my stomach can tolerate and nothing that I really fancy eating. And when I fancy something is too rich and then I suffer too much. I fell sick almost all the time i am heaving a lot but I am not actually sick. So luckily I hold inside whatever I manage to put in my stomach. Any suggestions on how to deal with the symptoms?

I lived on candied ginger. I kept it in the car, added it to hot water to make tea. Giner even in the "raw" stage from the store is great for sea sickness, carsickness, and works wonder for pregnancy. But it is strong. The candied kind is easier to eat.
You can also try Peppermint or Chamomile teas. They are good for upset tummies and are okay to use while pregnant.
Try to eat but stick with healthier and bland foods. I ate just cooked oatmeal with milk, boring but it stayed down.
Hopefully, this will pass. Good luck.

omg.. I so remember being sick when Pregnant! The first 3 months were horrible.. I didn't just have morning sickness, but felt sick ALL day, nothing helped. Some ladies try just munching on things like crackers to ease the feeling..My Dr told me that I would just have to deal with it..I never once threw up.. just that darn nausea day and night.. I'm hoping that after the 3rd or 4th month you will feel better.. :)

I was at my wits end due to severe nausea and nothing was helpful to ease me. A friend told about an organic tea "no to morning sickness tea" that eased my nausea all in a sudden and now I can easily keep down my meals.

Keep candy like Lifesavers or sour Lemon Balls in your purse. Suck on them before meals and when the nausea hits. You may not have to eat the whole piece of candy. Once you start to feel better, eat crackers and a little protein. Sip on water all day long as dehydration can cause nausea too. Don't stand in the hot sun for a long period of time, as that isn't good either.
Hope you have a wonderful rest of your pregnancy.
