  • Unfortunately you can get morning sickness at any time, and some women get it for the entire pregnancy :o(. There are some natural methods you can try that wont leave you all icky and zombie like. Ginger is very good for nausea, so is flat coca-cola. Here's something about the ginger : It's quite common for medical doctors, midwives, naturopaths, and other health practitioners to recommend ginger for morning sickness. Four double-blind, randomized clinical trials support this recommendation. The dose used in the studies was a total of one gram of ginger per day, taken in divided doses, for four days to three weeks. This is equivalent to half a teaspoon of ginger taken four times a day. It can be steeped with hot water for five minutes to make a hot ginger tea. Also, 2 drops of peppermint oil in a large bowl of hot water is supposed to help. Fill it up and set it by your bed at night. It's aromatherapy.

  • Where are your soda craackers? they should be on your night stand so that you can eat a few before you get out of bed.

  • its hard to sit up slowly when you have a baby crying to get out of the crib at 6 am, and a 7 yo that needs to get ready for school...i have barfed up crackers, and i have drank gingerale :(

  • Sounds like your a little irritated guitarmom. Gingerale is different then ginger tea. Why dont you try it.

  • some pregnancies are rough--you may have it the whole time. My first I was sick two weeks and really thought it was the flu. My son never threw up but was so sick to my stomach and had dry heves for 9 months. My youngest I was sick on and off the whole time.
