I have a GREAT one I did today.

Get about half a cup of Red Raspberry Leaf, loose - then half a cup of Red Clover, loose. Stick it in a gallon pitcher, top up with hot water. Let steep for an hour, drain through a strainer and sip as desired - hot or cold!

Works really brilliantly - actually let me get up and move around and clean my bathroom at 11.30 instead of 1pm! So I would totally recommend it.

And don't worry, RRL will not cause uterine contrax - the herb simply strengthens your uterine muscle for later on Does a fabulous job of settling the stomach though!

I can imagine perhaps a little bit of mint or lavender added in would be lovely too. I'm not a sweet tea person, but you could sweeten it with honey I guess

So that is my recommendation - it's really awesome!

*HUGS* xxxxx

Blah, that's what I'm afraid of. I've never had sea bands work for me (and believe me, I spent many years trying). I normally have a prescription med that I use but it's absolutely NOT pregnancy-safe. I guess we'll see how it goes. I might be praising the sea bands on here eventually!

Yeah, it might not be the most homeopathic of remedies, but when it gets bad, and it did last night, that plus B6. It usually doesn't make it go completely away, but takes the edge off so I can sleep at night. I'm always sick after dinner and into the next morning. I took some last night... worked like a charm.

That doesn't sound very safe, ladies. The box says to consult a doctor before using if you are pregnant. That usually means not really safe if you are pregnant.

I'm just saying.

No judgement.

I forgot one. Fresh ginger.

I carry a small baggy with sliced ginger and when I feel queasy I just whip it out, smell it and it calms my tummy down long enough to eat something and keep my B complex vitamin down.

Unisom is a class A, completely pregnancy safe drug.

The same ingredient is used in a product in Canada specifically marketed to pregnant women suffering from nausea.

My midwife recommended it to me. It is totally safe.

I agree that it's always a good idea to double check, but it saying to check if you're pregnant or nursing, isn't an indication of its safety or lack thereof. Everything says to check with your doc if you're pregnant or nursing. Even tylenol.

Anyone ever heard of breast feeding helping in Morning sickness.
Just wondering cause luckily I'm so much better off this time then with my ds.
Wondering if nursing is keeping my estrogen down and that has anything to do with it?

Ever read a study or heard of this?

What ever is working I"m thrilled, even if I still feel yucky, I'm not vomiting several times a day

Yep. Actually on the recommendations to prevent HG (severe morning sickness)on their site, one of their things is to get pregnant while breastfeeding. My midwife said its because it changes the way your body responds to the hormones. However, some moms on there said it didn't help. And others said that when they weaned halfway through their pregnancy their HG got worse.

For me it's definitely been true. Even though I don't feel great, I've felt lots better in comparison to last time around. I still feel nauseaus, but I'm not throwing up 20-30 times a day, actually I haven't thrown up yet. Just really nauseous sometimes.

Dude, I have been wondering the same thing!! I can tell my hormones are on the move but somehow it's like my body can handle it better. I don't want to assume I'll feel great the whole time, but I know that at this point last time I was sick as a dog!

ahhh help, my luck is changing, it's getting stronger and stronger. Still not HG like last but UGGGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!

This feeling can be so miserable! How do we get through so many weeks of this?

Eating something at 3,5,8 am just is so not fun either, it's so yuck!

Sorry so complainy pants today!

Sea Bands, Sea Bands, Sea Bands!!!! $10 at CVS and 10 minutes later my nausea was gone completely. It's a freakin' miracle, I was barely functioning for the last 2 weeks.

It's not working for me at all. I had HG the first time, an easier time with dc2, and now with dc3, it's HG again, and dd2 is still nursing.

I have had horrid m/s each pregnancy. Never did anything but endure it. This time around (with homeschooling and have 2 other littles around), I am NOT trying to be brave. So, although it is not the crunchiest thing to do, I am happily taking the occasional Zofran. It is the only thing that offers me any sanity. It does not take the m/s away completely, but I can at least eat and function. Just my 2 cents.
