Morning sickness - can you "prepare" for it???

Discussion in 'Pregnancy - First Trimester' started by jerseyshoregirl, Oct 22, 2008.

  1. Oh my! I feel like I have been out on a boat all afternoon.... every afternoon at the same time! :shipw:

    Does anyone else get m/s at the same time every day (other than just waking up in the morning) - and if so, how do you "prepare" for it so that it doesn't hit you as hard?

    I mean, it was bad enough this morning that I woke up with it for the first time in awhile - but that AND the afternoons straight into dinner time after an hour-long commute.

    Not that I am complaining, I love having these symptoms - but I need to know how to tone them down a bit :dohh:

    I usually wake up to pee then go back to sleep again, when i wake again later i usually feel sick so what i do is get something to eat when i first wake up and that usually helps me for later.

    Mine came and went as it pleased.

    For the first week it was indeed in the morning and throughout the day really. I was never sick, but just nauseated (always felt sick and didnt want to eat anything at all).

    After that it came and went throughout the day but getting better at night.

    Now I have days when it is bad and others when it is a bit better and I can eat kind of normally.... but it has never gone away completely.

    The best advice is indeed water. Everytime you feel sick take a sip of water and you will feel better. You can also do the crackers and plain tasting foods, but I just tried to eat what I normally did and after eating I did indeed feel a bit better.

    I also communte (to work) and bought these hard lemon candies, which I sucked on and they were a God send, I am sure they helped me get through the travelling and keep the sick feeling at bay.

    Hope it doesnt last too long for you :hug:
