Hi. I’m not expecting but I have a friend who swears by halls cough drops.  She keeps them at her desk and she says it helps tremendously with the nausea!

I have tried everything and everything seemed to work a little bit at one moment, and then not the next.

 

I do have to say I had a B complex vitamin that helped take the edge off. that was the only constant item that helped.

 

Sometimes it was eating something carby, sometimes it was sugar. Sometimes I just had to take a nap. Sometimes it was Metromint water.

I’ve been sucking on mints because if my mouth is fresh, I feel a bit less nauseated. Morning sickness is kicking my butt, though.

I’ve heard ginger candies can help.  Hope you feel better soon!

@august05:  I can get it at a few stores around me. I know its sometimes hard to find, but it is available nationwide.

 

I LOVE the Spearmint and Lemon. Darling Husband loves the chocolate and peppermint the best. (my mom loves the peppermint best too) All of them have no calories or any chemicals like a lot of the crap flavored stuff.

I’m not pregnant, but sour candy (like Sour Patch Kids) usually helps when I’m nauseous. I’ve also heard ginger is great – I know ginger tea works really well for nausea – and lavender oil is great too. (Though I’m not sure if that’s safe for pregnant women… so you should look it up first!)

Not pregnant, but I get horrible motion sickness in cars and planes.  Candied ginger works well, and it tastes pretty good.  Any candies with REAL peppermint oil helps too.  I remember finding these peppermint sticks at Fresh Market that were just peppermint oil, sugar and food coloring, and they worked well.

i got  MS at 5 weeks… it has been bad.. i swear by preggo pops. All organic and pretty yummy. the more sour the better. They are only for MILD nausea… so when mine got worse i had to cave and get zofran from my doctor. I hope you feel better with time!

I’m overseas so my candy choices were limited but I found lifesavers to work well.

I was able to fight the MS with preggo pops, candy suckers and ginger candy. In the end I always had a sucker or candy in my mouth

@august05:  Yes, I swore by ‘preggie drops’, you can find them at Motherhood stores, or even BabyRus stores..but they are basically just like Jolly Ranchers, just not as hard.

 

@monet11:  I actually mentioned Halls drops to my OB because someone told me the same.  My OB told me not to use them regularly because of the menthol, she said to go with mints instead.

Trader Joe’s sells ginger mint hard candies.  Ginger tea is supposed to help with nausea as well.  I’m not pregnant but I do get frequent bouts of nausea for other reasons. Not sure if it helps since I just got them.
