  • I learned from my mom and now give to my sicks when sick and that is gingersnap cookies. Peppermint candy or gum works good too. And when pregant with third kid fruit cups worked for me. You might have to find something that will work for you. Just hang in there.

  • I used an all natural organic ginger tea blend, look for the Traditional Medicinal brand- Fred Meyer carries it.

  • Gingerale. Crackers. You might need a Rx. I would call your dr if are feeling really bad.

  • Eat something every hour, a couple crackers, or a slice of apple. It will help to keep your blood sugar up. Keep some cracker or plain bread next to the bed and eat them before you even get out of bed. Ginger tea works well. I found my nausea so bad that I took two ginger capsules (you can get them at a health food store) three times a day to help curb the nausea so that I could eat small snacks. Mints also helps some people.

  • Sea bands- get them and don't take them off.

    Sushi ginger- its great for when it gets really tough.

    Always keep a little something in your stomach. The empty nauseous feeling is much worse than when there is a little something in there.

  • My daughter had to prescribe me phenegran and he also told me to take vitamin B-6. Hope you feel better soon!

  • Some great suggestions already. This one goes along with eating frequently, I kept almonds on me at all times, raw almonds. They had the same effect as crackers for me but are more nutritious.

  • Really cold fruit helped me through my pregnancy with terrible morning sickness. Particularly watermelon. I'd cut it up and put it in the fridge in small containers. I'd snack on them all through the day. Some days, I ate only watermelon, but it seemed to curb the nausea. One day, at 14 weeks, I woke up and it was magically completely gone! No morning sickness at all!
