I am currently 12 weeks pregnant with my second child and suffering from EXTREME morning sickness. I had morning sickness all 9 months with my first and not ready for another 5 months of being tired. Any tips or ANYTHING I can do to make it better?

I did talk to my doctor at my last pre-natal check up and she told me that vitamins should help, but with my first child they only made me worse. I've tryed crackers, water, gingerale, popsicles and changing my diet nothing seems to work. With my first daughter I was given med's to help me out but it didn't do much either. I've heard about the accu-pressure bracelets, do they work? I would appreciate any advice! Thank you!

  • Are you taking prenatals? When I was pregnant with my son I had the same problem but I came to find at about the 4th month that my terrible morning sickness was because of the prenatals. The iron in the prenatals tore up my stomach and made me sick. I switched to a vitamin A to Z with no iron in them and my morning sickness went away. You could ask your doctor if maybe you have too much iron in your system.

  • take your prenatals at night instead of in the morning and make sure you drink plenty of water with them...one of my friends had bad morning sickness and she tried the preggie pops they have at babies r us for morning sickness...try sucking on ginger candy or peppermint too that can calm nausea.

  • Have you tried Preggie Pops? Theyre supposed to help. I also got really sick while taking prenatal PILLS, but now I take the gummies and theyre great and no sickies!

  • Eat small snacks frequently throughout the day. Do NOT wait to eat. Smelling citrus can help. Ginger and mints are also great in the form of chews, or gum, or mints.
