DOn’t get me wrong-I’m excited for the end result, but I am about to lose my mind and I’m only about 5 weeks ( I think-don’t go to the doc until August 6th). My morning sickness (nausea) is pretty much lasting from when I wake up to when I go to sleep. I have the overwhelming desire to eat 1000 chocolate chip pancakes and and also vomit at the same time. I really hate being STARVING no matter what I eat, and my nipples feel like someone is SQUEEZING. I mean OW! Does anyone else feel this awful?

I was this awful too. Eat as soon as you wake up, like before you’re out of bed. Try having a hardboiled egg every morning. The protein goes a long way. Try different prenatals. Mine were making me so sick, but when I switched I felt so much better. You can also change the time you take prenatals as that can make you sick too.

Humm…yesterday I threw up almost right after i took my prenatals…interesting. Maybe I’ll try taking them at a different time. Thanks!

I started taking mine before bed, so once the nausea hit I was asleep and didn’t notice. I also found that eating more frequently and more bland foods helped. My lifesaver was applesauce.

Ugh…sorry to hear flamingred! I hope you start feeling better soon!
Definitely try the eating as soon as you wake up. A friend of mine swore by keeping fig newtons by her bed so that she had something prior to getting up in the morning. It helped the nausea go away early. Hopefully by the 2nd trimester, you’ll feel much better!
