Please, someone tell me they have a remedy for morning sickness/nausea


With my first pregnancy, I had NO morning sickness or nausea.

This one is the complete opposite and right now I am suffering I am nearly 7 weeks.

It comes on randomly, but today has been the worst yet. I dont want to eat, smell, or think about anything. I haven't actually thrown up, I've just been queasy on and off ALL day (like I need to stay close to a bathroom). Ive not eaten hardly anything today.


I need ways to combat this. What have you found helps relieve nausea/sickness.

For me I took doxylamine aka unisom before bed its safe during pregnancy and often prescribed by doctors I would ask your dr before you take it . Also ginger ale and saltines worked for me as well

B6 25 mg 3 times a day with unisom (doxylamine-- not the diphenhydramine version) is where i would start. I also foumd that eating small, bland meals more often helped. Eat something (saltines or something) before you even lift your head off the pillow.

I am now almost 19 weeks pregnant (tomorrow) and still dealing with pretty severe sickness. I take a prescription anti nausea medication (zofran) 3x a day, and it helps with the vomitting, but not completely with the nausea. Things are better at least. If it gets completely unbearable-- it was unbearable for me by 14 weeks when i had thrown up for 10 weeks straight 4-15 times a day every day--- the doctor can prescribe something to help. I hope you feel better soon. It passes for most women around 13/14 weeks.

Funnily enough eating is one of the only things that make me feel better, which is a pain because it's the last thing I want to do! But yes like a previous poster said, I keep a banana at my bedside and at eat it as soon as I wake, from there after eat something small and regular and it can help keep it at bay. As soon as I let myself go too long without something it comes back with a vengeance x

Lemonade, fizzy orange juice, salt and vinegar crisps and Haribo all helped me! My midwife recommended having a square of chocolate before getting out of bed to raise blood sugar levels.

Travel sickness bands worked almost instantly for me! I wore them day & night & only took them off to shower!

For me last time around, it was ginger biscuits.

First thing in the morning i'd munch on them Anything ginger or mint is supposed to be good remedy for nausea in general.

I visited the doctor and was prescribed an antiemetic to assist with the nausea

Eating is actually the only way to relieve mine! Little and often is key and I find colder foods settle my stomach better than warm (even if I actually WANT warmer foods).

So sandwiches, wraps etc.

Savoury over sweet! Lemonade/coke actually seems to settle me a little too though! So if Iím struggling to even make myself some food Iíll sip on that!

Ginger biscuits! Even smelling them gives me a hit of relief! Thought it wouldnt work as the idea of a biscuit made me feel sick too but it buys me time to make my dinner without feeling ill!

My nausea is getting worse and I find just walking around too fast makes me want to stop and heave. So move around at a good slow pace, sit down every now and then!

I hope it settles down for you! Xx
