  • When I was pregnant with my twins I was so sick I couldn't hold my head up sometimes. I tried everything, even the meds the dr gave me. I would still get sick. I was working one day and had an older lady tell me to drink pickle juice. Just take shots of it when I felt like I was gonna be sick. IT WORKED! I tried it that very same night and it worked. Just as soon as I would feel like I was gonna to be sick I would take a shot of the pickle juice and it would calm my stomach right down.

  • Nothing cured it completely, but the meds did lessen it some.

  • The only thing that worked for me was TIME! Once I hit 20 weeks, I was fine!

    And I was on 3 different anti-nausea meads but they didnt do jack crap

  • I did hard candy and preggy pops this time around. With my first, the nausea was so horrible, nothing helped until toward the end when it began tapering off...then I used those ginger flavored altoids. They're so strong, they actually work well.

  • Phenergan or Zofran! Peppermint would help a bit. But this time I needed medicine prescribed by the doctor!
