@eecuadrado:  25Mg of Unisom each night (doxylamine succinate) and 50 mg of B6 each morning. Worked like a charm!

I also took zofran and that worked when I felt nauseous but the unisom and b6 combo seemed to keep my nausea away completely.

@eecuadrado:  I only had this for the first few weeks. Right away in the morning, before even getting out of bed, eat a few saltines and sip some Coke that you had setting out. Yeah, flat pop is gross, but that is what one of the nurses told me to do. I never got to that point. I just dealt with it to avoid meds, and a few weeks later it was gone, but I do know it sucks.

If you’re hungry, for God’s sake eat because if you are like me, what will happen is the next week you will feel great but as soon as you think about something you’re craving you will instantly get nauseous, so eat when you are hungry, lol.

I’m 11w 2d and I’ve been sick since around week 5.  It’s awful.

Zofran worked WONDERS, but I had a really bad side effect so I had to stop taking it.  My Dr then prescribed Diclegis (prescription of the Unisom/B6 combo mentioned above), which has been mildly helpful.  I’m still throwing up around 3-5 times a day.

Chewing gum and ginger candy works fast for me, but only for a short time.  I’m nauseous around 75% of my waking hours.  Just lucky, I guess.  Hopefully I’ll be out of the woods here soon when I move into the second tri!

GOOD LUCK!

at first drinking ginger peach tea helped for me (republic of tea has several varities) but then I got to the point where that didn’t work- had to go to zofran- worked wonders for me (but I had to fight with my insurance for it).  Good luck!

I second the lemon trick.  I squeeze fresh lemon into my water and it really helps!  Also really sour gummy candies.  I was munching on sour patch kids at 930 this morning!

@OldMrsMcDonald:  Seriously, you are like super pregnant woman because you have had it really shitty with this morning sickness business. I really hope it eases for you soon.

@megz06:  LOL, thank you!  I’ve lost 12 pounds so far.  Ask my husband how many times I have ruined both of our dinners because I can’t make it through without getting sick… he’s a trooper, too!

FInd whatever you can eat and just eat that. Right now for me it is cinnamon bagels. Eat every hour and before you get out of bed.

Chewing gum especially right after eating seems to help

Really cold drinks, with slushy ice if possible.

Gravol and zantac.

Good luck! I’m heading into my 11th week and it is just starting to get a little better but I still have bad days.
