I have the worst morning sickness. No energy. I hope it goes away :( Any secret tips other than B vitamins and "it will eventually go away" -or- eat crackers (yuck!). Protein seems to help only temporarily. Desperate. Need to get back to work & feeling a little bit more vibrant so I can work :) I am 12 weeks pregnant. Started around week 7 & still here. Dyinggg

Ginger ale helped me a lot. I also heard to chew on ginger.

I am very pro natural but my only saving grace was taking Diclectin prescribed by my doctor. It's meant for pregnant women who suffer from morning sickness and is safe with baby. Worked wonders for me. Wouldn't hurt to ask your doctor about it either. Good luck!

If there is anything you can stomach try eating it before you even sit up in bed. Also, lavender is a great essential oil to help with nausea. Putting some on your pillow or on a washcloth that y can breathe in may help.

Drink lots of water and exercise regularly. Fruits are a good thing to lean towards, as well as nuts, and granola. Keeps you energized and nourished and feeling great.

I had hyperemesis gravidarum and I tried to go all natural for as long as I could. There is a product called Sea Bands that you can get at Walgreens; they're sweat bands with little balls that go on a pressure point in your wrist. Also, I would lay in bed for a while before standing, and then take things very slowly. I ate really small portions all throughout the day and ate mints when I felt sick. When I couldn't stand it any more they gave me Zofran and it was a miracle worker.

You can also try natural ginger candies or peppermint. Those two things helped me out a lot. I also opted for wheat thins as opposed to saltines, as the saltines didn't work well for me. Hope you feel better soon

Mine was sooo bad I was prescribed meds. The meds I took are called Dicelgilis. (Might have spelled it wrong) but lt worked, ask ur doctor for it. My doctor just gave me free samples enough to last for abt 3 months til it went away on its own

My doctor prescribed me zofran when I was pregnant. Helped so much and by 14-15 weeks I didn't have morning sickness. My doc has said it usually gets better once you start your second trimester. Hopefully you don't have morning sickness your entire pregnancy!

I lived off of mashed potatoes (made fresh), toasted bread, ginger ale, and loads of water. Ginger and lemon drops didn't work for me! But they worked for others! Good Luck, it's the hardest part!

My morning sickness ended around week 14 and the only thing that helped was a big glass of cold water with lemon as soon as I felt sick. Good luck!!

There are some candies called "Gin Gins" they are AMAZING! My Moms BF was going through chemo during my first pregnancy and they had them at the cancer center for the patients. The doctor gave her a bunch for me and they helped a lot! Now with baby 2 on the way, I went straight for the "Gin Gins" Also, for me sour candies worked in a pinch :) Congrats on the pregnancy Momma!
