I’ve always heard crackers do a wonderful job for nausea. Maybe try that with some small sips of water? Good luck, I hope you feel better soon.

For me, eating every hour or so, just something small seemed to help a lot with nausea. I stuck mostly wth carbs and protien in the early weeks and also drank a ton of peppermint tea. Jolly ranchers and sour patch kids also seemed to help 🙂 Hope you feel better soon!

@mrsmjm:  I feel your pain. I’ve been so miserable (nausea-wise) the last 5 weeks. It helps me not to go too long without eating… grazing all day, even when I have zero appetite helps control the nausea to some extent. Lemonade and sour candy also help a bit. Sometimes pita chips or something like that work to settle my stomach enough so that I can eat something healthier. I’m still looking for other tips myself.

I don’t know anything about pregnancy, but I’m a huge advocate of Reed’s extra ginger beer. Its just a soda with TONS of ginger, and I think it does wonders for nausea, way better than regular ginger ale. Hope you’re feeling better soon!

Sorry you are going through this! I was like this for the first 12 weeks and am gradually getting better now. What I found really helped was ice cream and milk, like a frappe. It helped to coat my stomach and stopped some of the gagging. I learned to hate gingerale and crackers, but caffeine free coke helped because some of the fizz helped settle my stomach. Also, try to have something to eat before you even get out of bed. See if your Darling Husband can bring you something to eat as soon as you walk up and then don’t move for about 30mins to help the food settle.

Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!

Yes, definitely keep something in your tummy at all times. When my tummy is totally empty is when I’m sick (still having morning sickness every morning and I’m over 17 weeks pregnant). Once I have food in me in the morning, I’m good to go. Bland things like crackers, pretzels, and try sour candies (I bought Preggy Pops) and anything with lemon. Lemonade was great for me! Hang in there!!

@mrsmjm- Glad the smoothie helped! See if you can buy some individual ones at the grocery store so all you are your Darling Husband has to do (I can’t open the fridge in the morning) is grab one of those and bring it to you. Or they have those drinkeable yogurts that I found helpful too. Sometime you are instantly sick in the morning because of the acid build up over night and when you try to do anything on an empty stomach that is when I really got sick.

I found when I had bad morning sickness having a granola bar by the bed, eating it right when I got up helped. I wouldn’t leave the house without eating. Even now, I do two breakfasts, a granola bar or cereal, then a banana and applesauce when I get into work. I like ginger ale and ginger beer for the queasiness. Also, you could get Gin Gins which are pretty great for relieving the nausea. Right now, I live off of mints when my reflux acts up.

Saltines, canned coke or ginger ale, chicken broth (mrs grass soup is good too)

My mom says that sometimes ginger SNAPS can help with nausea. I’ve tried that a couple of times. It usually works.

Ask your doc to be sure, but I think Zofran (prescription) is safe during pregnancy. I’m like 80% sure it is. I will look on Epocrates right now
