Ugh. So im 5 weeks 3 days and all week the nausea has been getting to me, especially late at night when it’s special time with the hubby. Smells dont make it bad, it’s just an out of the blue overwhelming nausea but I can’t throw up. It’s driving me nuts already.
so what do you do to help the nausea? It makes it worse that I just started a new job today and felt like running to the bathroom every five minutes. Any help from anyone? I’m going crazy here

Ginger (real ginger candy, or ginger ale made with real ginger, or ginger tea) and saltine crackers. Watch your sugar intake with the ginger though.

Keep a little something in your stomach fat all times during the day. Also unisom and b6 definitely works for me. Went from being sick all day to 2-3 stretches of 10 minutes each which is not too bad. Ask your obgyn about this though.

Preggo pops are a hard candy that seems to help.
Bread. I find eating bread to be a god send.

i was also going to suggest ginger. 7-up/sprite and peppermint tea also help me.

I had nausea with no throwing up (just dry heaving) for a few weeks. Ginger stuff made me feel worse. My advice would be to stay hydrated, stock up on crackers and try to make sure you have snacks with protein throughout the day (hummus, eggs, peanut butter, cheese, yogurt). I’m 16 weeks now and NO NAUSEA or anyhting–I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you! Good luck 🙂

I have found that the b6 and unisom (1/2 a pill because it makes me sleeeeepy) has worked wonders! Hope you feel better soon!!

ginger tea (made with real ginger) and occasionally peppermint tea
no tips for mood swings im afraid, mine pretty much stopped by 14 weeks but until then i felt completely emotionally unstable

You could try sea bands. You wear them like sweatbands on your wrist. The company makes some other things for pregnant women too to help with nausea

I lived off of oyster crackers and ice chips. The ice chips were my savior when I was sitting in class, it was like if I gave my mouth something to do it made my nausea better…and since it wasn’t something sugary, it didn’t seem to upset my stomach more. The cold was good, too! I also took Zofran, I don’t think I would have been able to function without it. VitB6 and Benadryl (very similar to unisom) didn’t do anything for me. You just have to try tons of different things and hope something makes you feel better! Sometimes I found that no matter what I did, I still felt like crap. 🙁 hang in there!
