Mine was always curbed with sugar....like in the morning a bowl of cocoa puffs (or something high in sugar) or in the afternoon a piece of chocolate...

Re: Morning Sickness

Honestly, nothing.
I've tried several times, and I've just realized that if I am going to get sick -- I am going to get sick. It's just my fate. LOL
Luckily, even though I've had HORRID nausea I havent thrown up much (and when I do...I feel much better...gross, I know).
However, when I am doing things like doing dishes that still have food on them smelling lemon really helps me -- so I bought a super duper strong lemony scented dish soap. It works well when Im cooking too.

Re: Morning Sickness

Re: Morning Sickness

It seems like every day it is triggered by something different. Sometimes, I am overtired, sometimes it is what I've eaten and others it's b/c I am hungry. I have found that saltines with soynut or peanut butter helps. However, trying to figure out what I can eat w/o feeling ill from that is more difficult.

B6 and Unisom for me too!!!

I'm almost 17 weeks and have been doing this since week 7. Makes a ton of difference. Specifically, I take a 50 mg Vit B6 in the am and pm and a 1/2 a 25 mg Unisom (so I'm taking 12.5 mg) about an hour before bed. I have had to FORCE myself to go to bed extra early, as I've found I really need 8-10 hours of sleep with the unisom. But the sleep is good for me and so is not feeling awful the next day.

Re: Morning Sickness

do you have to sleep through the night if you take unisom? I have to wake up at 2 a.m. and sometimes 4 a.m. to test my son.

Re: Morning Sickness

Zofran. Pitiful but I've literally tried everything else there is. That keeps it at bay in the morning. The rest of the day I have to snack constantly on protein rich foods.
