Morning Sickness Help

My morning sickness was so bad this pregnancy, I tried a million things that people suggested before I had to go on zofran since I couldn't even keep water down. Some of them work on some days, some didn't. At 21 weeks I still get nauseous if I don't eat often.
Here is a list of the many suggestions I got that may or may not help ease through morning (all day) sickness)
Ginger, ginger ale (with real ginger)
Eating even before you get out of bed in the morning a light carb snack.
Eating every 2-3 hours, light mini-meals through out the day
Papaya enzymes
Vitamin B6 tabs (unfortunately I could not keep the pills down)
Avoid citrus, especially at times you usually get sick or on an empty stomach
Avoid acidic foods, eat lots of alkaline foods.
Caffeine free cola
Enhanced by Zemanta
sea bands
Sucking on peppermint
Avoid strong scents
Take your prenatal with food

Some of these tips helped, I used most of them from time to time and they did help a little bit. For some woman just doing some of these simple things can alleviate many symptoms of morning sickness. Hopefully if you do experience morning sickness it will not last into your second trimester like I am still dealing with.

  1. I'm really sorry, that sucks. I got incredibly lucky as I'm having a much easier time of it. Still, I've caught a tummy bug twice and it's left me incapacitated and unable to keep anything down. It's left me tremendously grateful and super sympathetic for women who suffer. Good tips, hope you'll find some relief real soon.
