Hmm that is odd. Do you eat late, or soon before you go to bed? Sometimes, hubs will eat and then go to sleep and the food won’t digest, so he wakes up in the middle of the night and throws up. Its crazy, but luckily doesn’t happen often

This used to happen to me a lot as a teenager. I remember being at a friends house or something and vomiting after breakfast only to get the uh oh pregnant remark and nothing could’ve been further from the truth. I never used to eat breakfast but now I do every morning and no longer have this issue. Maybe just trying different approaches to things like previous poster suggested it could be your body responding to your eating patterns. If you eat late try earlier, if you skip breakfast try eating breakfast. Maybe something super bland like toast but I believe your body will work this issue out on it’s own once you learn what works best for you.

This happens to me occasionally.  I find that it happens when I DON’T eat late and my stomach is completely empty when I wake.  also, Fiance has had this issue.  He has acid reflux issues.

I’ve always been one to wake up with a little nausea, and can’t really eat in the morning because it just makes it worse.  I’ve asked my doctor about it, and he thought maybe I sleep on my neck funny, and my dentist thinks perhaps I grind my teeth and get nausea from the tension.

I have been this way my entire life.  Getting up in the mornings takes a lot out of me.  I can’t just snap out of bed and get with it.  The earlier I have to wake up, the worse the nausea.  When I was in school, I used to miss my bus a lot because I would be in the bathroom with diarrhea nearly every morning.  I couldn’t eat, so I’d faint during the day, at times.  When I was in high school, I’d try to shove a little breakfast down my throat (literally had to forcefeed myself) on the way to school so I wouldn’t pass out during the day.  I’d end up feeling even worse when I did that.

Nothing has changed now.  If I wake up really early in the morning (before 9), I cannot eat anything until after 9 or 10 AM.  Even if I get up after 9, I have to wait at least thirty minutes before eating something.  Then, I need to wait at least an hour after I eat to leave the house if I’m going anywhere.

It is horrible.  People just assume I’m being lazy or something because I don’t start my day until well after everyone else.  But, I physically cannot do it.  I feel like what a pregnant woman says she feels like in the first trimester, only it’s EVERY SINGLE MORNING OF MY LIFE! I  hate to imagine what I’ll be like when I’m pregnant.

I wish I could tell you how to fix this, but I have no idea what to do.  I’ve tried just eating a light breakfast of fruit or something… even just juice, but that makes me sick, too.

Do you take any medication or vitamins first thing in the morning? I get really nauseous if I don’t eat something before I take my birth control pills, and I’ve heard of people getting nauseous from vitamins as well.

I know this would be little effort, but have you tried calming teas at night to maybe help your stomach?  There are a lot of digestion foods as well that you can try.  The first thought in my mind is stomach acid or something.  But, I’m just guessing.  It wouldn’t hurt to try.  Make sure when you do eat your meals, that you are chewing well.  Like to the point where it’s applesauce in your mouth before you swallow.  Try some foods that are easier to digest.  Like I said, just totally guessing to help you find some relief!

Maybe try a protein heavy breakfast, like scrambled eggs?

@brideatbeach:  I used to have it all the time!  If I had to get up super early, I would throw up.  It’s gotten better since I moved out on my own and my life is “calmer.”  Do you take the multivitamin first thing in the morning?  A lot of those make me really sick. Maybe keep some peppermints in the kitchen.  Peppermints have always helped calm my stomach.
