    I’m 17 and a half weeks and the nausea is the same. I have a feeling it’s here to stay.

    I had nausea from weeks 6-9 then I was fine for the rest of the pregnancy. During that time, ginger ale and saltines helped a lot. I know it’s hard, but eating small amounts often can actually help keep the nausea away. I tended to get it when I went too long without eating.

    My doctor prescribed Zofran for the nausea (I got the generic form as is it ALOT less expensive).  Zofran worked like magic!  It makes you very constipated, though.  But I would take the constipation over the nausea any day.

    My nausea subsided (for the most part) around 12-13 weeks.  I was only taking Zofran for about 4 weeks.

    Mine was really bad from wks 6-10… but then I miscarried at 11w2d, soooo I guess I would rather have kept feeling nauseous than had that happen ๐Ÿ™ – HOWEVER I don’t know if the two are even related, and it seems like nausea seems to diminish in the majority of women between weeks 10-20. Good luck! I remember how awful I felt those few months and it was very difficult!

    One of my friends just told me that sea sickness bracelets can help with MS. Some of her friends that are pregnant swear by them!

    I’m in the same boat, at almost 10 weeks. My doctor prescribed Zofran, but it hurts my guts so bad. I’d rather be nauseous instead of so painfully uncomfortable and constipated.

    My sister bought me Preggie Pop Drops or something like that. They’re little citrus candies. They seemed to help, but I am starting to hate them (as I do every food I eat frequently… I keep ruining everything that sounds good!).

    I’m 20w4d.  I wasn’t nauseous at all.  I highly recommend taking B6 to prevent nausea, I am pretty sure that’s why I was never sick.

    I’m at 28 weeks and it’s still here, just as bad as ever ๐Ÿ™ It started around week 7 for me. I’m taking Diclectin and it makes it slightly more bearable, but I still throw up all the time. I went through a few weeks where I actually felt like I didn’t really want to be alive anymore as a result of it, but I’m sort of… used to it now I guess? I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it doesn’t last this long for you!

    Things that helped me a lot have been anything citrus – mandarins, orange juice, lemonade, etc. I’m sipping some lemonade even as I write this, in an attempt to keep my dinner down ๐Ÿ™‚

    @envirobride:  I thought mine would never end… I was sick everyday up until 20 weeks. BUT, it did stop! Just go day by day

    @envirobride:  Nausea during pregnancy is the worst. Mine stopped around 16 weeks, but I know some people have it throughout the whole pregnancy. For me, nothing worked. Ginger, sea bands, B6, eating constantly, saltines–it was just horrible. My doctor gave me a prescription but I really did not want to take it. The good news is that you don’t really have to eat that much at this point to sustain your baby. The other good news is that it WILL end eventually, even though it seems like it won’t!

    @envirobride:  I didn’t vote because I had no nausea with my first and none so far with my second (I’m 8ish weeks). I have heard that is usually clears by the second trimester though!!
