Eat when you can and what you can until you get over the "throwing up stage"  Try eating crackers right away.  Having small snacks helps with nausea too.

 Don't let your stomach get completely empty.  Eat a little bit every hour or so.  If it gets too bad, ask your OB for phenergan.

Phenegran is the best. With my first I was so sick they had to continuously push fluids and I had to make 2 visits to the hospital. Don't let that happen, eat whatever you are craving, for me I would get sick eating healthy foods but could stomach pizza. Crazy I know, but true. Try anything but don't get dehydrated. By the way Ginger Ale in the soda aisle is not real ginger, try the natural ginger ales, they have real ginger.

 Dry toast, crackers, when your tummy settles some opt for other light foods, chicken soup, etc. I didn't have any nausea/morning sickness so I'm no real help, but I'd follow the rules if you just were getting over a stomach bug, eat light little meals.

O i remember that part of the pregnancy. It was miserable. Eat when you can. Try to eat healthy snacks all day. Sour and vinegar foods helped a little with the all day nauseau. Take your prenatals. I switched from the ones the doctor subscibed to the vitamin world brand with pepermint and ginger extract... That helped a little. My first trimester was not glamorous, but remember it gets easier. Good luck!

 Preggie Pops All Natural Morning Sickness Drops

You can get these at Walgreens or CVS.  They really worked for me with my youngest two.

Congrats.  Hope it passes soon.  The second trimester is usually better.

all I could eat my first pregnancy in the first trimester was cheese and crackers, and pimento cheese sandwiches. that's all I could stomach.  Don't let your stomach get empty, snack all day and you'll feel better.

The eating thing/morning sickness can be a bit tricky, I had rather bad "morning sickness" everyday including the one on which I went into labor. Eating was difficult, at times almost impossible, there were stretches when I could only eat a certain food/foods. I lived for a time on plain, dry roast beef sandwiches and lemonade. Try to eat when you can and do let you doctor know so they can monitor the situation, good luck.
