    Sorry you're feeling so bad hun - believe me it doesn't last forever and will get better. I think you at least need to tell your bosses that you're expecting because that way they'll be more understanding about any time you have to have off.
    I know its the last thing on your mind but do 'try' to have something to eat, even if its a dry piece of toast because it may just settle your stomach down a bit. Aside from that hun - all i can say is to make sure you're drinking enough water (esp as you're being sick a lot) and get lots of rest.
    Sorry i couldn't be more help.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    Hi hun, I have been suffering really badly too. I've been off work for 3 weeks and even ended up in hospital for 24 hours on a drip!! Keep your chin up hun, it won't last much longer (that's what I keep telling myself anyway!!!)

    Poor you - constant nausea and vomiting is rotten. If the tablets don't work, then you can ask your GP for different ones. If you can't keep your tablets down, there are ways and means of getting antisickness meds into people. Some people find ginger, staying in bed and acupuncture/acupressure help. I told my work really early on (about 5 weeks) as I was too sick to work, especially in the mornings and they've bent over backwards to accommodate me - you might find it easier if someone at your work knows :hug:

    Oh hun :hugs:

    I really feel for you, as I suffered with ms really bad.....I lost over a stone in weight. As the others have said, just try & drink pletny so you don't get dehydrated.

    I found mine was worse if i was tired, so try and get enough sleep & rest. I found ice cold drinks were easier to stomach than anything else, and oddly enough, Sprite seemed to really help! Also, try sucking on a peppermint sweet....I used to find that really helped with getting rid of that yucky metallic taste.
