  • Ask your doctor for Zofran. It is a an antinausea medication. I was the same way and it helped me. I also drank a lot of cokes and ate peppermint candies. If you like ginger it will help as well. Good luck.

  • I would def. try the preggie pops. You can get them online, at some walmarts, and at Motherhood Maternity. They helped me a lot but I of course didnt hear about them until after months of having morning sickness. Now that I am 36 weeks pregnant I sometimes still get sick but I was given medicine, Im just not sure if you can get medicine this early on. I would ask the doctor, I now how miserable it is! I also lost weight in the beginning and thats normal. Good Luck hun!

  • AHH! this is my 4th pregnancy and my worst 1st trimester ever!! I was nauseous from the day I found out and I lived on ginger ale and saltines. Honestly, I was really thinking it was never going to go away!! I kept telling myself at 13 wks it should be gone......guess what?'s gone!!! I almost cant believe that it went away right when I turned 13 wks. BUT like I said the only thing that helped a little was the ginger ale and saltines, and I ate alot of multigrain cheerios. Hope you feel better soon!
