    For the last few days I've been feeling a bit off, burping and a general mild sicky feeling; is this ms or just upset stomach in general? X

    It's hard to tell whether its a general upset stomach or not? X

    i think its the beginnings of m/s. Ive been feeling like this too - feelin waves of nausea but not actually being sick and also burping a lot! Ive been getting that feeling where you feel like you're gonna be sick if you dont eat something then it goes - usually after a biscuit or something lol.

    Yup. MS doesn't always just come on in a wave of you running to the bathroom. Amazing what TV and movies drill into our heads. ;)
    I felt mildly nauseous occasionally until 8 weeks, when I started just feeling terribly queasy all day, coupled with praying to the porcelain god once a day.
    Welcome to the wonderful world. ;)

    Might I suggest a few things?
    Ginger ale and saltines are your new best friends. Embrace them.
    Preggie Pop Drops are all right for mild nausea. But if you feel like you're about to lose your lunch, honestly the best thing to do is just get to the nearest bathroom and get it over with. Throwing up sucks. We know. And if you're like me, your insides will spasm for a good minute or two after, you'll chill on the bathroom floor with tears running down your face, and feel weak for the next five to ten. But after a couple minutes you can clean up and it'll be a memory. Fight it back and you'll just be nauseous all day.
    Sea-Bands are great (for most people, not all) for the all-day queasies.
    Ginger gum is good for chewing to stave off nausea as well.
    And when you get up to pee at night, eat something. I keep string cheese for this very reason. I've been told that drinking some milk can do the same. Nausea hits when your stomach is empty...keep it from getting empty! Keep crackers or something light with you at all times, and nibble at the first sign of an empty stomach.
    Good luck!

    Mine kinda started that way but lasted, kinda all day crummy with a tummy ache feeling--now Im 9 weeks and puking every morning, but doing better by the time Im up for a few hours..Keep moving, it really helps. Sit down when you need too, but dont give into it dwelling on it makes it even worse..make sure you are getting enough fiber and b6! --I think you have m/s just the early parts of it <3

    Amazing! String cheese is a good protein that helps your tummy stay fuller, longer. In the morning I eat a bagel, then an hour later, a string cheese, then an hour after that an apple sauce, then an hour after that, another sting cheese. << Then by lunch Im back on track eating and feeling like a normal person. She is 100% right about trying to hold it off, makes it SO much worse. Drink lots of water, and Ive found that Vitamin water helps me, to sip on it throughout the day..not a lot of sugars and it has a good amount of b6 and stuff! Feel better!! Hang in there <3
