    Damn this morning sickness! And it's not even got to it's worst point yet :( I have tried everything, from ginger to Stemitil (prescribed by dr after yet another mallory weiss tear, causing me to throw up mouthfuls of blood, bleh!) and eating small plain snacks, nothing is working, though the meds have let me keep down small amounts of fluid at least. I feel so guilty cause I should be eating and retaining good, nutricious food to help baby grow. Have started sipping the slim fast drinks for their high levels of everything, though now I'm worried because they contain vitamin A... Moo :( sorry just a big moan this thread x

    Sorry to hear your having a rough time hun. :hugs: Instead of having the slimfast drinks, why not go for something like Complan? These are more nutritionally complete and come in different flavours. They are available from Boots if you'd like to try them.

    Also try to take your vitamins, they will help.

    Have you tried taking B6? 50mg should help.
    Also, ginger capsules if you are having difficulty holding things down, or fresh ginger sliced in cup of hot, hot water with a little honey to sip...this really helps me on my worst days.
