    coke was my best friend in the first sixteen weeks, too!

    and I always forced myself to eat when I felt sick as this made the sickness better!

    When it comes to all day sickness I have seen it all :( Unfortunately I have something called hyperemesis which prevents my food from staying down. So far I have found the following work very well:

    1. Don't get out of bed right away when you wake up. Allow yourself 15min. Sit up for a while and then slowly move your feet tot he floor

    2. Don't take extra hot showers, try cooler showers

    3. Eat and drink in very small portions throughout the day. Never let your tummy be too full or too empty

    4. Try avoiding super hot or spicy foods.

    5. Foods/drinks with ginger

    6. Stay out of the sun on very hot days.

    Hope some of those may help you out hun!

    rich tea biscuits or ginger biscuits

    try to have this before getting out of bed.
    that always worked for me.

    I had my first day of real morning sickness today :hissy: I've felt a little sick up until this point but no real throwing up. Today I was dry heaving since the time I woke up. I have a job interview too :dohh:. I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to pull that off. Pregnancy is hard.
    Also! I'm getting these really bad stomach cramps not like period cramps but like digestive cramps, is this normal? Or should I be alarmed?

    I found that with Jack to keep cream crackers with me at all times was great and also i used to drnk boiled water with fresh squeezed lemon in it.

    I used to get 4 cups out of each lemon cut in 1/4s squeeze then chop up and add to cup pouring boiling water over.

    Hope you get over it soon hun x

    I don't think you need to be alarmed Violetstar, more than likely it is just your bowels.

    Dear violet star , Dont be afraid sickness will pass after the 1st trimester.I still have but it is not so strong.If u feel that u cant work do not force your self.Its really annoying i know...I hate the feeling too.For example now its 430 am in here and I woke up really sick...You are not alone hun!
