  • I used to call it "All Day Sickness" because well, it was all day for me. One thing I have heard that helps you take a prenatal vitamin? If so, when do you take it? Do you take it at night? Some prenatals can cause nausea.

    Have you tried anything with ginger in it? I've heard that works too. But I know everyone's different. Crackers never helped me but those cheddar & bacon chips worked?? Go figure. Luckily I only ate a few at a time to just curb the nausea or I would have been 500 lbs! LOL

  • uugh, my "morning" sickness is more prominant in the evening.
    Different things work for different people.
    I get by on saltines, cereal... other things you can try are ginger ale/sprite, hard candies.. ect.
    Try eating something in bed before your feet hit the floor.
    Hopefully you'll start feeling better soon. I'm 14 weeks, and it's getting a little better.

  • Ginger chews from a whole foods store really helped me. There are also preggie pops (available at most Walgreens or CVS pharmacies). Also, you can ask your OB for some Phenergan for the nausea or in extreme times (I've been there) Zofran is the BOMB!!! (but very expensive)!

    One of the most important things to do though (although you really DON'T want to) is EAT!! The more you hold back on food for fear of barfing, the sicker you really get. Hunger can cause nausea too, so make sure to eat something, anything. With my son, SALSA worked, the hotter the better, with my DD, Zofran was the only thing that worked for 15 weeks! This time around, it was anything salty (beer salt, french fries, salty potato chips ) and ginger chews.

  • Ah: Re the preggie pops!! My husband went to CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid, and couldn't find the darn things!! Every pharmacist said they'd never heard of them!
    So I'd just go to Babies R Us the first stop, or order them off the internet.

  • That is how my entire first pregnancy was. I found that it was worse if I didn't snack between lunch and dinner. Try to eat small little snacks often. Laying down helped me the most. I would eat dinner and then lay down on the couch and watch a tv show with dh. Hope it passes soon. :)

  • its called morning sickness but it can be anytime throughout the day, and night and morning are exactly the same thing when it comes to pregnancy sickness. unfortunately somethings wont make it go away, it usually will subside but like week 14 or so.
