  • Gatorade helped me. Also, instead of eating meals, I would eat a snack (something really small like half an apple with a couple slices of cheese) every 2 hours. What is making you sick is your blood sugar dropping. To keep it level, you need to balance your carbs (quick energy) with protein (slow energy) regularly, so that you blood sugar doesn't drop. Not saying it will fix everything, but it really does help. Peanuts help too :)

  • I was sick constantly for the 1st 4 months with this pregnancy. I had to suck onalot of hard candy (lemon drops usually) It did help a little. Also my Dr. told me benedryl would also help with the nausea. If I let myself get hungry I would get sick too.
