I lived on ginger snaps when I had morning sickness, but in all honesty, nothing really helps that much.

Keeping something to snack on right on my nightstand helped me. I’d chomp on a few nuts or pretzels or whatever was there before actually getting out of bed. That totally helped. 

Drinking water and having little snacks on my person if I was out and about seemed to help too, because I never knew when I’d be ready to gnaw my arm off from hunger. Getting too hungry goes downhill quickly.

Yeah, having something in my stomach at all times helped a ton. When that wasn’t possible, I sucked on a hard peppermint (I kept a handful in my purse), which helped a ton.

Eat before you get out of bed. I usually get up at 7, so instead I set the alarm for 6 and Darling Husband would go get me something to eat whether it was a bagel, cereal, etc. Then I would eat in bed and relax. So by the time I got up and had to start moving I already had something in my stomach. Also frappe’s were a lifesaver. They really helped to coat my stomach. Also do not eat too much sugar in the morning, your stomach will not be able to absorb it.

For me, eating 1/8 cup of sunflower seeds every day helped a ton. I think the extra vitamin B6 in them is what helps the morning sickness.

I also drank ginger tea and gingerale which helped my heartburn which was also making me feel nauseaus!

So I was chatting with my waxer last night who is going to nursing school for pediatrics and has helped her various friends through pregnancy. She said there are these things called “ginger pops” – basically ginger lollipops that are supposed to be FABULOUS for the nausea. I’m going out to buy some this weekend!

Honestly the only thing that worked for me was drug, LOL. Zofran and Reglan were my best buddies. Lemon scented things and mint things helped when I was just feeling queasy. I always give out lemon and mint scented bath things to expecting friends, I loved my mint shampoo in the morning. Kept me from wanting to hurl in the shower every morning.
