Need suggestions to help with nausea during pregnancy

Vicki - posted on 04/03/2012 ( 5 moms have responded )




I am pregnant with my 3rd child and I'm having a lot more nausea than I did with my first two. I'm 7 weeks along and feel nauseous almost all day long, especially before meal time. Eating something, like Saltines, seems to help for a moment, but I can't really eat all day long and the thought of eating doesn't actually seem too appealing, despite the temporary relief. I'd love to hear any suggestions you might have for settling the stomach! Thanks!

No to morning sickness tea helped me a lot alleviating my morning sickness.

These are the things I'm doing:

-sleep on a steep incline, almost sitting (if you're unable to sleep due to nausea)

-keep a cut lemon near you at all times to sniff if you get a whiff of something gross

-I also eat lemons, and put lemon juice in cold water. Grapefruit also is good.

-if you suddenly feel okay, don't stuff yourself (I do that because I'm SO hungry, but about half the time it all goes wrong and I have to stare at the toilet some more... but half the time it doesn't, so...)

-try not to let yourself get too hungry, or your stomachache will get worse

-just eat what you feel like eating, nothing too prepared or complex. For me, fresh fruit, fresh veggies, etc all go down a lot better than a stew or a casserole or something like that.

-meat is bad, avoid meat

-salt&vinegar chips might help settle your stomach, but don't eat too many or the grease'll make it worse.

-I'm avoiding butter and cheddar cheese, but milk, yogurt and mozzarella are okay.

I'm going to follow this thread with interest. I'm 6 weeks along and have been feeling bad since week 3. I don't know how I'll survive until 13 weeks! :(

eat 6 small meals a day instead of meals, snack often, rise slowly, and drink plenty of water.

I found that having cold glasses of water helped as well as having plain dry crackers or biscuits, they are light and I only had to have one or two to help it go away. I also found having smaller meals more often helped. I had it all day long for 13 weeks then it just stopped so hopefully not too much longer. I tried to stay away from this that I knew would make it worse like meat and really strong smells
