Sour candies. Anything sour actually.  Green apples will do as well. They have lollipops that are called preggie pops for the nausea but they are basically just sour candy.

Edited to say that my cousin told me when seas are really rough on a cruise, they put out plates of green apple slices because it helps with the nausea. 🙂

Anything ginger.  Ginger candies, gingerale, ginger gum, ginger tea.

Anything sea bands.  The wrist bands work for some.  They also have a ginger gum that I love.

Emetrol.  Safe for pregnant ladies and if you ready any reviews online, very high success rate.

I found that when I was queasy, carbs really were the only thing that helped… that said, could you do rice or potatoes? 

I would also check with your doctor to see if there’s anything you can do- I’ve heard of the patch behind the ear, the bracelet thingy, and something called preggie pops (but I have NO idea what’s in them).  If your morning sickness is bad enough, they should be able to provide you with some alternative solutions given your condition.

FRUIT! I am gluten intolerant as well, and I lived off apples, bananas and melon for the first 8 weeks or so. Rice cakes and corn chex too, but fruit helped the most.

I was recently told that orange juice helps for some reason. I’ve been drinking peppermint tea, ginger ale and sucking on Vermints brand Ginger Mints and it helps a little. Carbs are really the only thing that settles my stomach the most, though. Sorry that you can’t have them, but I hope you find a solution. I’ve heard that something called prego pops (I think that’s what they’re called?) work really well, too.

I agree with the fruit and apples.  I will also add that carrots and string cheese have been helping me as well. 🙂

Anything tart/sour. I lived on Jamba Juice smoothies (the tart kinds not the sweet kinds) for the first trimester.

Fruit lollipops or fruity/boiled sweets help some people. Perhaps yoghurt might work? I found tomato juice a bit helpful some of the time. Otherwise could you try some gluten free bread or crackers – would that be possible?

If it gets bad and you are not keeping much down I would consider medication, many girls do have take some. I did.

Good luck, I know it’s hard x

Oh and I agree with potatoes – esp baked potatoes with a little butter on.

I have an Indian friend who told me that tamarind helps with pregnancy associated nausea. The sourness of the tamarind is what helps.

there are lots of gluten free crackers – glutino makes some that taste similar to a saltine, those might help a little (you could order them online i’m sure). also, uncle bens sells 90 second rice pouches – just pop it in the microwave! (just make sure you check the flavored ones, i think a few are rice mixes and contain gluten)

Definitey ginger – raw ginger, gingerale, etc.  You could even take ginger pills (just natural ginger in pill form).

Popsicles have always helped me as well.
