Haha. (TMI) Well, pregnancy already gives me quite a bit of stinky toots so the beans wouldn't be much of a change...

so far, what has helped is eating constantly. The 'every 2 hours' thing is not frequent enough. I feel like I'm eating every 20-30 minutes. I try to keep the meals super small, I notice that too much is just as bad as not eating frequently. I wrote up a list of small snacks that sound good (cheese & crackers, pb & apples, cottage cheese, yogurt, etc.) and put it on the fridge for the moments when NOTHING sounds good, I just pick one & go with it.

First thing in the morning, I've been eating a very small bowl of cereal. Barbara's shredded bites is good, as well as some sort of honey O's. I've noticed that I'm very sensitive to milk right now, it makes me pass out like I just ate a huge turkey dinner, so I need to go buy some almond or soy milk for the cereal.

My stomach just never feels quite right, and I have an odd taste in my mouth, and nothing tastes quite like it should. I want to order some preggy pops and see if they work, especially for when I'm out & about.

and what is this about beans? I'll have to eat some, I love beans but I've been avoiding them cuz I'm already a big ol' gas bag

I've had to chew gum constantly. As soon as I stop, mty mouth tastes awful again. I don't do well with ginger, so the lollipops don't work for me.

The beans have worked all afternoon! Yay!! I am snacking on garbonzos.

I've had really bad morning sickness that lasts well into the second trimester ad even meds didn't help. I have tried it all. THe two things that I've found to be most helpful are: fresh squeezed lemon in a glass of water, and a good digestive enzymes capsule taken w/ my prenatal and with meals.
The digestive enzymes made a world of difference for me.

I had morning sickness BADDDD my first pregnancy and the thing that worked best for me (only thing) was just to eat only the things I didnt mind throwing up! Fruits, juices, etc. NO milk products, etc.

Since the only relief I had was from vomiting, this seemed to be a great trick!

Thanks for the bean link. It was the best description of WHY we feel this way.

I wonder about other high fiber, low fat, protien snacks like apples and peanut butter or something? The thought of beans makes my stomach turn (surprise!).

Ginger helps a bit, drinking sparkling mineral water with fresh lemon or lime, eating almonds before getting out of bed...

I wish I had a personal chef-- I think I could get more down if I didn't have to think about it, go in the fridge (gag everytime), touch it, smell it, and THEN eat it. sign.

Hang in there, Mamas!

The only legumes we had in the house tonight was (were?) a can of Amy's Lentil Soup. I'll let you know how it goes...

the bean article was QUITE intriguing! It made a lot of sense. All I had handy was some pork & beans, I ate a few small servings and it totally helped. I am a bit worried about the, er, repercussions tomorrow

I am kind of with you on this Regina, at least in my first pregnancy. This time around everything makes my stomach turn and so it is hard to find anything to eat. Last nigh DH brought home some super greesy pizza hut pizza just because he wanted me to eat something... Never Again!

Nuts are good and usually mildly flavored... I have sprouted almonds and dried cranberries on hand always. Sprouted almonds are extra crunchy!

Protein smoothies with rice protein and/or yogurt and fruit also helped a lot the 1st time around. The cold really made it easier to eat.

Update on the bean situation. Had like 1/2 cup of black beans three times yesterday afternoon and was fine the rest of the day - yay! Feeling a little queasy this morning, but less so than the last week, and cooking up some kidney beans that I soaked overnight right now.

Thinking back, in my last pregnancy one of my big cravings were split peas and lentils and I didn't get a whole lot of morning sickness. Glad to have found such a nutritious and cheap cure, plus growing up in New Mexico you know I love my beans!

I tried the beans too. Despite eating a lot of them in a non-preggo state, they were REALLY tough to get down. But I think I do feel a little better...

I also had some miso soup today that tasted really good going down. I feel like it is cleansing for the liver too, maybe?

Subbing!

I get very motion sick and I throw up at the drop of a hat, so I'm nervously waiting to see if I'll get morning sickness.

Any mamas in here get motion sick and find they have bad morning sickness too?

I've been feeling less sick when we are out doing a lot of things. For some reason moving around and keeping busy helps.
post #35 of 65
Alright so the bean thing didn't work for me. I actually felt worse last night than I have the rest of the pregnancy. Glad it is working for some.

Hmm. I've been craving 3 bean salad on top of cottage cheese. Maybe that explains it.

My doctor gave me some samples of BNatal lollipops and lozenges. They have B6 in them and come in cherry and green apple flavor. I have found them to be very helpful so far.

Those sound good!

I had HG last time too and tried everything with little luck...

but here were some of the best:

-Acupuncture worked miracles!
-Lemons in everything ( Sour activates the liver)
-Sea bands
-Ipechechea (spelling is prob wrong) Homeopathic tablets (or nox vomica)
-Keep something that smells good around me all times
-Eat a bite of something every half hour
-carbonated water
-watermelon (cooled my system)
-eating something each time I woke up to pee at night
-walking or swimming if I could even for a few minutes

Things that didn't work:
-prenatal vits (too strong just had to eat well)
-ginger (too heating on system)
-drininking apple cider vinegar to cut stomach acid (couldn't get it down) ---- -smells while living in SF couldn't stand the cigg smoke and smells of streets
outside
-eating too much or too little
-hot days

Me! I even get sick watching movies! For the last week, I have simply felt sea sick on and off all day. I have thankfully only thrown up twice (and that was after eating dinner). Those sea bands really seem to help though.

I always wondered what subbing meant on a thread. Can someone please explain it to me? Thanks
