honestly i still get this if i forget to take unisom the night before.. and i’m 31 weeks pregnant.  Nothing else worked for me, but unisom works like a charm.

I’m only 6ish weeks but I feel similar. After lunch the crap feeling kicks in.

Have you tried ginger or peppermint candies? Those can help sometimes. With dd I ate goldfish crackers like non-stop because if my stomach was the slightest bit empty – bleh!

Sorry mine didn’t get better until closer to 12 weeks!

I had NO nausea /morning sickness, but I still had this at times in the first and second trimesters.  I would just get so f*cking tired and gross-feeling after lunch and feel like death warmed over.  I went home and napped a few times.  Eating smaller amounts definitely helped some…  ugh.  Good luck!

Yeah, this happened to me. I had really bad morning sickness from 6 – 12 weeks, and it was typically worst in the morning. I would vomit most days first thing when I got up and continue to feel shitty until like 7 or 8 pm. Then around 12 weeks I started to feel better in the am, but worse in the pm. It wasn’t until 24 weeks that I felt 100% good all the time, unfortunately.

I have a gaggy nausea where its mostly in my throat. I feel better when I’m eating but getting myself to eat is difficult bc every smell bothers me. My nausea strikes at its worst randomly….sometimes i feel ok in the AM. Sometimes im ready to cry from how sick i feel at noon. Its annoying!!

Redholix :  Sorry you are dealing with this. I dont have advice on how to feel better but I did go something similar.  Throughout the first trimester I would have some minor nausea in the morning or anytime I got hungry but I would eat and almost always feel better. Like you around 10 weeks it went away but around 13 weeks my nausea came back with a vengeance and I actually throw up a couple times.  I just felt off with nausea and tummy problems from week 13-15 and I asked my doc what the heck? Im in the second trimester shouldnt I be feeling better now, not worse? Doc replied that each pregnancy is different and women can feel Ms at anytime during pregnancy. I am now 30 weeks and have felt pretty good since week 15 but a couple of nights last week the nausea came back!! Its crazy!! Knock on wood been ok since last week.  I hope some other bees can offer suggestions on how to feel better. I sipped on ginger ale and that helped me a little but was about it. If it keeps up you can always talk to your doc. Good luck and hope u feel better soon!

Redholix :  I felt like this earlier in my pregnancy. I’d snack to keep the nausea at Bay. Pregnancy Pops are a godsend! They’re little hard candies that would help the nausea go away.

Are you taking Materna or an iron pill? I would get reallllly bad “afternoon sickness”, then tried switching to take my pill at night instead of in the morning and it helped a lot. I still felt a bit queasy in the afternoons but munching on animal crackers or arrowroot cookies helped a lot. Also, smoothies! I read somewhere that protein is apparently good for helping with pregnancy nausea. Good luck! I’m 17 weeks and immune finallllly just went away about 2 weeks ago!
