I have tried saltines, ginger ale, sprite, eating smaller meals more frequently in the day, and those sucker things they have most of the time I don't throw up I am just really nauseated and trying not to throw up all day I'm miserable if anyone has any advice please help. I never got sick with my last pregnancy.

  • I had morning so bad with my first pregnancy. I tried everything to help it and nothing worked. I finally had to tell the doctor and she prescribed me a medicine for it and that stuff was great.

  • I too am 17 weeks pregnant. Up until about 5 days ago I had horrible morning sickness. I was sick 24 hours a day with that nausea and nothing helped me. I tried everything. I went to my doctor 5 days ago and she prescribed me promethazine for the nausea. It has helped me so much. I can actually get out of bed and do something for once. I feel for you.

  • You doctor can give you anti nausea meds. Promethazine makes you sleepy. Reglan and Zophram just makes your stomach empty quicker so you'll eat everything and will be hungry all the time. I have tried them all and honestly the only that helped me was the Promethazine/Phenergan (another name). If you take it regularly for a couple days you get used to the tired feeling and it won't happen after a while. If you do get put on that just stick with it. Other than that vitamin b does help alittle but you have to ask which ones are ok because you can take too much so ask your doc.
