Morning sickness...
...is not just happening in the morning. This started a few days ago and it's all day long. Ugh!

I know that women have been going through this for millennia (and I know that a lot of women have had it a lot worse than I do) and I don't mean to be a whiner, but I've been lying in bed for hours feeling like I have to puke (I refuse) and now I'm eating gingersnaps because they are supposed to help and I just feel so...ugh.

Every woman who has ever had morning sickness and/or who has been pregnant has my utmost respect!!! I was pregnant last year (miscarried in December) but I had no morning sickness that time. This is a whole new ballpark.

Your favorite tips to feeling better are more than welcome!

Try some of those accupressure wrist bands. They relieve nausea without any medication. A friend of mine used them when she was pregnant and said they helped her, so maybe they'll work for you.

Never mind...

during the first few months of each of my pregnancies, I basicly lived on saltines and ginger ale.....helped with nausea and with heartburn.

Real ginger might help. Eat something when you first wake-up before you get out of bed. I will try to find out what else my friends did to help with their's since they are still pregnant.

I was like this with my daughter...the dr told me to have saltines on the table next to my bed... and before I sat up, rolled over, or anything first grab a cracker and start eating it... it did help some... the rest of the day I lived on Life Savers Mints...I don't know why but those helped me the best always had bags of them around the house and in the car...ginger ale helped too...

I hope the morning sickness leaves you soon

There are several safe herbal remedies you can try:

Ginger Ale or Ginger Tea
Morning Sickness Magic which works wonders for me.
Vitamin B6 and a capsule of ginger twice a day.
Preggie Pops or Drops
Peppermint Tea.
Eat small snacks during the day, nothing to heavy. I eat some carbs (WW crackers) and a little protien (cheese or a slice of turkey) and a fruit (apple slices, grapes or dried fruit)
and here is a video for self acupressure for nausea.

HTH!

Peppermint generally helps me for the queasies but nothing ever helped with morning sickness. My last two I had to take medication for as I was losing way too much weight and dehydrating. Even with the meds I felt icky but everything I did eat or drink stayed down. Sorry you are feeling icky but really the payoff later is really really excellent!
