Morning sickness ugh!!
- I am 9wks pregnant with my 2nd child an my morning sickness has been horrible! I had it bad the first time an I don't remember being such a big baby like I am this time and it is so much harder when you have a 4yr old to take care of! I have found preggie pop drops an saletine crackers to provide me with some relief but I'm still pretty much sick all day! I hope this goes away soon so that I can enjoy my pregnancy a little more.

Morning Sickness tip
- In case some gals are not aware, I recently read that not all Ginger Ale has "ginger" in it, so if you find it isn't helping, that would be why. I'm still drinking it because it's refreshing at times, but no, it doesn't do a darn thing for my MS. I'm still searching for the thing that works for me, but so far, I only feel 10 minutes of relief after eating something, then the nausea's back with full force. It's like being on that whale watch I went on 8 yrs ago and never getting off the boat! ugh! :-\

Oranges + Salt

Preggy pop drops, Or mints
- Preggy pop drops are a sour natural candy and whenever you start to feel queasy just slowing eat or suck on one and then nausea goes away, also just a regular peppermint candy helps calm your stomach.

- Crackers & water worked perfect with my first child, but wow this time around nothing will work! Everything makes me sick I went from 125lb -110lb in 2weeks I have the shivers hot & cold flashes I feel weaker & weaker each day & 24/7 sickness. I wonder if I should go to the hospital.

- I am 8 weeks pregnant with my second child after experiencing 3 m/c and have suffered nausea and extreme tiredness, since day one! I can only hope that this is a good sign. Saying that, I have tried ginger and it seems to work. Good luck to you all.

- I'm 12 weeks pregnant and have been diagnosed with hyperemesis (extreme "morning sickness"). Part of what makes me nauseous is acid reflux which happens to a lot of us with intense pregnancy nausea. Acupuncture helped immensely with the reflux. My acupuncturist left acupuncture "tacks" which I've had in for over a week and has helped a lot. Still super nauseous but I haven't vomited since they've been in. It's worth a shot! I've read that hypnosis works on about 80% of women suffering from HG. It is all triggered by the emetic center of your brain, so I figured it can't hurt. I'll repost with the results if I find a good therapist.

I got sick on anything!
- My morning sickness was the worst. I got nauseous off of a sip of water and a cracker. It was awful but for some reason goldfish were the only food I could eat that didn’t make me sick and actually helped with my nausea. I had goldfish bags by the bed, in the car, even at work.

Morning Sickness (All day sickness)
- I am 8 weeks pregnant with my first and have lost 15 pounds since I found out I was pregnant. I have had major food and smell aversions and have not been able to eat hardly anyhting. But, recently I have found that chewing a piece of Big Red cinnamon gum has helped thru my worst queasy spells. I also try to eat some crackers first thing in the morning before I get out of bed to try to curb the nausea. I have also found that if I eat too much at one meal, I tend to feel more queasy than if I eat smaller, more frequent meals or snacks. Pickles have also been my best friend, something with the vinegar and salt combination has settled my stomach at times. Sounds kind of crazy, but maybe some of these tips will help someone else.

McDonalds and carrots
- I'm in my 6 weeks and now resting at home for the last 2 days. Feeling like throwing up every time seeing my fav food on tv. I can't even drink my fav chocolate milk or a piece of my lemon biscuit. Feeling tired and nausea all the time. However, raw veggies like carrots, cucumber and lettuce happened to cure. Munching on them every time I'm hungry. For a treat, I would go down to macs for large fries. Unhealthy but it helps...

You're not alone
- You're not alone - this is a positive reminder that your baby is still there. My second pregnancy - 7 weeks 2 days and sick all day, worse 4pm onwards. I was sick with my first till 17 weeks. Everyone is different with food fav's but toast and dry biscuits are harder to be sick on. I can't drink water or ginger ale. I drink diet coke - the fizzy gas helps and yes not so good for you, but it is short term. I was on Zofran for first pregnancy, it does work for 6 hours but if you can avoid it - better for you and baby - it was the last resort for me as I ended up in hospital on a drip. My mum is helping to care for my toddler so I am resting most of the day - where you can - get help. I only drink water at 2-3am in morning, the only time I can keep it down. Trial and error, but keep your food simple for a while: plain pasta, mash, toast, roast vegies (pumpkin is great), vegie soup etc. I avoid meat and fish during this time, the smell, thought and taste don't work. Take each day as it comes
