    Can we share tips () for getting through some of the obstacles we are facing in the first few months?

    I currently need help on something that could ease the feelings of nausea, I feel slight nauseas all day & night; maybe more severe in the morning/ early afternoon. It’s a lingering and annoying feeling.

    I’m also having issues with nothing tasting good or even ok.. not even water but I am so hungry... I did try some olives and I did enjoy them and they didn’t make me feel queasy.

    Ooh watermelon sounds great now you say it!!

    Yeah I’m constantly tired too! If it wasn’t for work and/ or my DD I could probably just stay in bed. Also finding it hard to gather the motivation to clean the house like I usually do, I guess because I just feel tired all the time.

    Hi hon
    I found eating little and often helped. Ginger biscuits also helped for a little bit. And I know this sounds weird but sniffing something menthol like albas oil or vicks takes the edge of the sickness off. Having dry crackers near ure bed so u can have a nibble first thing b4 u get up.

    I found my sickness really came and went and then came back with vengeance at around 7 weeks but I was lucky I have only been sick once but I've lost count at how many times I've dry heaved and wretched (gross) Haha.

    My sickness lifted at 16 weeks but I do still get a little nausea here and there and I'm now 20 weeks.
    I actually lost my appetite in early pregnancy but I'm certainly making up for it now. I'm like a human dustbin haha:shy:

    Kind of assumed after 1st trimester my symptoms would automatically just disappear.. but could be feeling like this for a lot longer!!

    Honestly wish you could request to be put into a coma until about 14 weeks...

    A small baby store just opened near me and they sell morning sickness tea. Maybe its online somewhere? Its just ginger and peach tea but i cant stand the smell of it hot so i just make it as an iced tea. Its the only thing that has helped.
