oh dear I am feeling this all day long and even waking up in the night. Not yet been sick but lots of gagging and just feeling like going to be sick any minute now. Sitting at work trying to eat my lunch but all I can seem to eat is chips and crisps. Not very healthy and I dont want to put loads of weight on in 1st trimester because I was eating rubbish! I am only 6 weeks tomorrow and just soooooo wish didnt feel so sick all day… im sooooooo happy to be pregnant though….
anyone else feel like this??

So sorry to hear you’re feeling so icky! For me, eating 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds per day helped my nausea. The B vitamins help! I also drank gingerale and ginger tea.
Good luck! Hope you’re feeling better!

Thank you…. can you just start having vitamin b or do you need to ask doctor first? I cant believe how rough i feel…. and no one at work knows so very hard. Thank you for your advice x

@stars11: I just got the B vitamins from the sunflower seeds! If you do start taking extra vitamins, check with your doc first for sure!

Oh…I so feel you on the “morning” sickness! Whoever dubbed it “morning” is full of crap! It was morning, afternoon and evening sickness for me too! I found that keeping my tummy slightly full all the time helped. I ate a lot of crackers, toast and had a lot of ginger ale in the first trimester. Citrusy type things also help…like lemonade. Usually any of the store brand lemonades were too sweet for me, so I would do 1/4 lemonade and the rest water.
I also heard about the vitamin B, but unfortunately, that didn’t help me much :o(

So sorry! I was like this for the first 12-14 weeks. The one thing I found that really helped was an ice cream frappe. If I coated my stomach with that then I was able to eat. I wouldn’t worry too much about the weight gain, you just need to do what you can to survive in the beginning. My doctor used to tell me he would much rather me eat pizza every day than nothing at all. I also got sick so many times on gingerale and crackers that I ended up drinking caffeine free coke instead for the bubbles.

Yes, I had “all day” sickness well into my second trimester. I hope it doesn’t last that long for you!
