    Nothing made it go away, but some things made it better- primarily never, ever letting your belly get empty! Candied ginger, mint tea, protein does help you last a bit longer, which is why people swear by it. Congrats!

    I had bad morning sickness with this pregnancy from weeks 6-14 (still get nauseated, but it passes & I don't puke anymore!). Zofran helped me a lot, at least to eat. Peppermint tea, and I always had some plain unfrosted animal crackers with me when I thought my stomach was going empty, which helped keep something in it. As long as I kept something in it, we were ok (still nauseous, but not debilitating). Bland food to eat.

    I had almost no m/s with ds1 and it was so bad with ds2 it lasted until around 25 weeks. Idid all I wrote Above plus zofran plus phenergan and I was still so sick. It really does vary per person and by pregnancy. Even after 25 weeks I stopped throwing up daily but I still was nauseous and had trouble eating many things and in the evening.

    It will definitely make you drowsy at first, but the side effect wears off once your body gets used to it. I'd start with 1/2 just at night and see how that works for you. You can work up to 3 full pills/day if necessary.

    With DD I just did 1 full pill at night at still had some nausea but it was improved over before I was taking anything. This time I read that up to 3/day was safe so I started 1 at night and 1 in the morning and I feel even better than I did with DD, and currently no nausea at all! I haven't had any in a couple of weeks. That said I do still gag about 30+ times a day. It's strange because the gagging is separate from the nausea. Any bad smell or anything remotely gross sends me gagging and I'm talking about things that normally wouldn't phase me at all. I gagged like 4 times just trying to get my dog fed this morning because I know dog food stinks, even though I had my nose blocked so I wouldn't smell it. It's making me feel gaggy just typing about it, LOL! I never (knock on wood) throw up though, I can get control over the gagging through deep breathing and thinking about something else.

    Candied ginger and gingerale worked for my 24/7 nausea. If you decide to try gingerale make sure you buy a brand that actually has ginger listed in the ingredients. Not all of them do. And if you want to avoid the sugar, Canada Dry makes a diet ginger ale.

    Be careful with diet ones, they have artificial sweeteners, most of which aren't so good in pregnancy.

    I didn't know that about the real ginger thing! I'll have to check mine out! Thanks

    I will probably be repeating what other ladies have said.... I think the most important thing for me was just to eat a little something every hour or two....whatever didn't make you nauseous. I also started keeping crackers (saltines and graham) on my nightstand. I would eat a couple before I even got out of bed in the morning. I drank a lot of ginger ale and always kept peppermint candies on hand.

    I didn't have it as bad as most. I was constantly nauseous, but was able to keep things down. Hope that you are able to avoid it altogether :-)

    I started to cook crock pot meals in my garage because the smell was so bad. I didn't have M/S with my 1st pregnancy, none with my 2nd which I lost at 8 wks, but had a ton with this one. I ended up taking zofran which helped. I tried not to take it often and just went without eating until something sounded good. I ate it. Most times, it was Chick-fil-a grilled chicken bites from the kids meal.

    I had my first craving today and it was for Buffalo wings. And I'm a vegetarian! *sigh* haha. Thanks so much for all the input ladies, I'm filing it away! I bought a bunch of ginger root to take up north with me and I have extra B6 as well.

    I didn't have morning sickness per se. I didn't throw up, but there were many times that I almost did, dry heaving, sweating, gagging, etc. It was especially bad in the morning and it didn't help that I teach high school and the smell of hormones, Axe and cologne is quite prevalent.

    Ginger ale didn't work for me once I got to that point. I swear by Gingins ginger chews. I have only been able to find them at health food stores. They are strong and even burned my nouth a little, but it allowed me to work. I also ate and drank a lot of citrus fruit and juice. Sipping lemonade can also help.

    Hope your morning sickness is not bad, but there are lots of things to try!

    Fresh fruit and cold drinks helped me the most. Gatorade/Powerade were good, but I diluted them to 50% strength because of the sugar.

    congrats and take whatever you can with you! yes B-6 and unisom is your diclectin which you can't get in the US any longer. i had hyperemesis gravidium with DD1, so nothing worked...i was in the hospital most of my first tri. i used zofran pills, compazine supps, had a reglan pump, b6 and unisom and all of that i still vomited a million times a day! oh and i can't forget the anti-nausea bracelets...i found one that must have fallen out of DD1's baby book...dh and i had some good laughs! i was desperate!
    DD2...nausea. just regular.old.morning.sickness!!! i ate rice and pasta for 14 weeks and then craved veggies, fruit and beans.
    it's always different for everyone. one of my hospital visits a nurse swore by peanut butter, i tried it only to find myself in the bathroom overnight. one friend told me tomato juice, tried it, bad choice! my hubby make coffee and cooked in a crockpot that sat on our deck! lol! he couldn't even have his coffee cup in the car when he'd take me to the hospital every few days.
    so it totally varies! i think in general, bland foods are safe!
