Keep a glass of water and some saltines by the bed. Eat some and drink the water before you ever get out of bed.

Try peppermint, they sometimes help.

I found that heavy starches- mainly potato's helped keep the nausea away later on in pregnancy.

I agree with eating before you get up. You could also try eating a little snack in the middle of the night.
Ginger beer is good too, reeds is one brand I know of and no, its not alcoholic . Not that ginger ale crap, there's no ginger in it.
You could try preggie pops too, they're supposed to be helpful.

peppermint helps. Also you may want to try saltines. Snacking in between meals and breaking up your meals in to six small meals instead of 3 large ones. Good luck momma!

Eat toast or crackers before you even sit up in bed.  Eat frequent snacks too throughout the day.  When I was pregnant if I would even start to get hungry I would get sick.

1. some man named it "morning" sickness, because his wife was sick in the morning and by the time he got home from work, she seemed to be feeling better.  The vast majority of women (according to info from my ob's office) complain about feeling sick ALL DAY LONG.

2. try eating light, start with crackers or dry toast and water or light tea (chamomile is best, making that double strength can help settle the stomach).  Avoid starting with foods that are difficult to digest like fruits and veggies (but do try to get them in when you're feeling better; they're REALLY important).

I LIVED ON tums for four of my pregnancies.  (I miscarried the fifth one).
