Morning sickness anyone?*nothing is working*

This past week I started to get morning sickness. It is isolated in the mornings to about 3pm everyday. How are you coping with it? Ginger ale doesn't work, small meals dont work, what else can I try?

UPDATE: so far nothing is working. The very second i eat or drink anything i throw it up. i have found a way to get some nutrition to the baby, and thats to eat right after i throw up. it gives it enough time to digest before it comes up again. I just ordered the preggie pops. something has to give. this is taking away from my life! My mouth and lips are so dry and I have very dark circles under my eyes and the worst headache. My house is a mess, my laundry has built a mountain, my precious kids have been awesome, but I feel terrible for them having to hang out in my room (because its close to the bathroom). I hope this doesn't last much longer! I was only like this with my oldest dd. Both ds' were a breeze!

 crackers. bland, bland, bland food. Anything that you can tolerate basically. Soups, etc.

I need to eat every 2/3 hours or else I feel nauseous.

I think thats what i am going to have to do-eat every 2-3 hours-that makes sense because the nausea starts off as slight hunger, then it goes into nausea then if i throw up its just acid. i just brought up more crackers and water to eat in the morning. i need to get this under control. there is nothing more tormenting than being nauseous.

 Well then, there you go :) You're just like me. In fact, that's how I found out I was pregnant by that very symptom lol! I though it was my sugar dropping, which it kind of does, but eating helps it. Take a moment to browse the store and look at foods. I literally have to stand there and think about it lol. Do I want campbells soup, or progresso?

Fruit & veggies help me more than anything. Salads, apples, oranges, bananas, etc.

I had really bad morning sickness actually wasn't able to keep anything down for 24 hours. We had to go to the er. Come to find out I had an UTI they gave me zofran that melts under my tounge. before that I would use peppermints and or spearmints they helped a lot. Other moms had told me about something called preggie pops they say they work. No store near me carries them so I haven't tried them. I also would try some jello or popcicle. The drs also told me to try to stay away from meats and veggies. Try some peanut butter on crackers and soup that's something my hubby read. Also if you can I had the dr on call tell me a few days ago if you can take vit b6 and unisom. I guess the b6 helps with morning sickness and the unisom will help you sleep through it. He told me take it twice a day. I only take the unisom at night cause I have three others. By the way I'm 9 weeks. Good luck I hope some of this helps you.

I'm 13 weeks, and my morning sickness hasn't let up since it started around 3/4 weeks. No regular cures help, I'm on phenergan, but that isn't working as well as it used to. I just want to quit and lay down, sleep, and wake up not pregnant. I've thrown up three times tonight, and my stomach and head are both on fire from dry heaving. 

Anyway, ignore my rant about 'all day sickness'. There are a ton of natural, home remedies you can try, lemon, hard candy, soda, one of my friends drank a sip of beer every time she got nauseated and it did wonders for her. If you know when it happens, just try to distract your body around that time. If you can't stand it, talk to your doctor about getting some anti-emetics, but try to keep that as a last resort. Good luck!

Small meals more often are said to be helpful. That didn't work for me.

These were amazing for me:
