    Can’t believe it, woke up this morning to go to work at the awful time of 5.15am and sat on the edge of the bed trying not to heave. Drove into work also trying not to heave and now sat at the reception desk trying hard to be polite to staff and guests whilst thinking how long it will take me to run to the toilet if I need to!!
    I’m 6 weeks today. . and MS seems to have started in a low gear. Hope it doesn’t gain too much momentum as I can’t bear the thought of working with it any worse!!

    I understand how you feel, my MS started at 6 weeks and has only recently stopped. I found that if you have something to eat when you wake, before getting out of bed, then stay there for 10 mins it will help to settle your stomach before you get up.

    As weird as it sounds, I got so used to feeling awful that when it finally stopped I worried something was wrong with the baby!

    Best of luck finding something that will work for you :hugs:

    You poor thing. I haven't had much so far. Lots of feeling queasy but not much actual ms. I do have a problem with heaving when Iam brushing my teeth and using the mouthwash though. OH thinks it hysterical and laughs out loud at the retching noises!!! Not nice is it lol! I hope it passes fairly soon for you though chick. Take it as a positive that little bump is nice and strong!

    I know exactly what you mean, it was all I could do NOT to pull over this morning. It was awful.

    Soon after I got there though, I munched on some toast and everything was better. I'm hoping it stays low lol.

    I feel your pain. I am nausea right now and have been on and off all day everyday for the last week!! I have found that drinking lemonade helps a bit. It horrible being at work and feeling this way! Especially for me because I teach elementary school and I'm constantly talking but worried that something else beside words is going to come out at anytime!

    You can order preggie pop drops at www.early-pregnancy-tests.com I just ordered myself some. They have gotten pretty good reviews. I got the preggie pop drops since they are like a hard candy. Perhaps you could keep some in your desk for while at work??
