@Evie19:  candied ginger or ginger ale are good options, so are nibbling on saltines (though graham crackers did it for me).

Granny smith apples are good for nausea as well.

Acupressure-The p6 point or “inner gate”: 2 or 3 finger widths down from the top crease in your wrist (at the base of your palm) there is a groove between two large tendons. Gently apply pressure to this area when you feel nauseas. Or Top and bottom of wrist: Take your thumb and index finger and firmly press on the points (where the p6 is) on both sides of your write. Hold for 10-30 seconds, or up to 5 minutes, and breathe deeply

Slice a lemon- the smell of the citrus calms both you and your nausea. Take deep breathes close to the lemon as you slice it.

Peppermint oil- apply a few drops to a cotton swab and rub on your gums. Or drink peppermint tea

Suck on a frozen lemon or lime slice.

Mint tea helped me tons, also saltines, almonds and water/sweet tea.

@Evie19:  My friend froze ginger and said it worked really well. I usually got nauseous if I had an empty tummy. Maybe try crackers. I’ve heard of it hitting late alright.

When I get my IBS nausea I have ginger tea made by boiling up diced ginger then drinking the liquid.  Tastes AWFUL but my nausea is gone within 15 minutes.

Ive had a few pregnant friends try that and they have the same effect! So maybe that will help you too?

Do you have any peppermint or even peppermint tea? In a bind, that can help. Also, if you have a pharmacy near you, you could pop out and get some B6. That will definitely take the edge off.

Peppermints!  I would keep them in my pockets. They really take the edge off.
