    • Cut out excessively fatty and spicy foods.

    • Avoid strong odors such as coffee, meat and garlic.

    • Eat several small meals instead of three large ones.

    • Try acupressure; wear sea bands three-quarters of an inch down your wrist in between tendons.

    • Infuse bathwater with grapefruit, orange, mandarin or lime aromatherapy oils.

    • Try ginger. If you don't like the taste of it raw, try ginger tea or invest in some all natural ginger ale at your local health food store.

  • Take 1.9 mg (micrograms) of vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxine). (Women require 1.6 mg of B-6 daily. However, daily intake of over 250 mg can lead to nerve damage. Pregnant women should not take more than 1.9 mg, and nursing moms should take no more than 2.0 due to harm that pyridoxine can have on the developing fetus. As a water-soluble vitamin, B-6 must be replenished each day. Any B-6 not used is eliminated in urine, thus new sources are always needed.)

  • You can talk to your doctor about it and they can give you a prescription for something to help!

  • I use preggie pops or preggie drops (same candy different sizes) They are a bit sour but they helped settle my stomach. . Also cut out fatty foods, strong smells. . . drink lots of water. . . small meals and snacks. . . strange but true I was less nauseous the more frequently I ate as long as I didn't eat a lot at one time and skipped fatty snacks and greasy foods.
