I also love kefir! I killed my grains and need to find some new ones!

I recently saw a post in the Traditional Foods forum about people looking to get rid of extras- you might check there.  I only have a little batch of grains right now, but when they multiply, I'd be willing to share!

The only thing that seems to do much for me right now is ginger cookies and eating regularly. I have been trying the Preggie Pops. The spearmint worked fine one time and did nothing another time. I haven't tried the others yet.

the Morning Wellness tea by Earth momma Angel Baby with my last pregnancy worked wonders. Also ginger chews by the Ginger People. 

 

im only 5 weeks, and just starting to feel a bit yucky in the evenings. Not too bad. No vomiting yet (i still have time! lol)

Ooh!!! I love those ginger chews! Thanks for reminding me of that one :-). What would we do without ginger?

meat and eggs. It's all I can eat it seems. Well, potatoes, beans and rice too. But bread? fruit? pancakes? ugh the thought makes me sick.

 

I'm starting to think the "lots of protein!" is a good tip for me.

Potatoes have definitely been doing it for me too.

Liquid. Soup, smoothies,etc. My theory is it doesn't sit in the stomach as long.

The more times I get pregnant, the worse the sickness gets. 

 

This is my third pregnancy and this is the worse.  Right now, sitting down and not moving helps me a lot.

A friend of mine sent me the following recipe that she swears by for morning sickness:

 

"Slice up a cucumber really fine, grate about two Tbsp of fresh ginger, juice a lemon and remove pulp and seeds, and cut up five or six mint sprigs. Add all of that to a gallon of COLD distilled water and steep it (like tea) overnight. Warning: don't use hot water or it will taste like pickles. (Don't ask me how I know that). Anyway, the ginger and mint will help with the nausea and the cuke and lemon will help with gas and bloating. I would make two or three and try to drink them in as many days. It's a lot of water but your body is going to carry 40% more blood volume during pregnancy so you need it! Also, increase your protein to 100 grams per day and that will help too and stave off preeclampsia."

 

I have everything except for the fresh ginger, so I'm going to go buy some tonight and try making this.  I'll let you guys know how it goes!

All I want to eat are carbohydrates. I'm ok with some meat...as long as someone else has cooked it. The idea of dealing with raw meat is a little revolting. I'm not sick, really, but I just lose my appetite when I smell kitchen smells.

I was like that with Mae, but oddly this time raw meat just makes me want meat even more.

 

Last night I made some chili... and I was chowing it like crazy straight out of the pot before I added the tomato sauce... and then suddenly I didn't want any. Just meat and beans? HECK YES. Tomatoes? no thanks.

This baby is definitely it's daddy's. I love tomatoes, he hates them :(

I am sitting at work with my lunch agonizing over eating it. It's not that I don't want to eat it, I just feel stuffed. It's a perfect protein lunch for me but all I want (and for some reason think I have room for) is a ginormous chocolate chip cookie!

I just have to add that the ginger / lemon / mint / cucumber water IS really helping me today.  If I start to feel queasy, I just drink a little and it goes away.  It's worth a try to anyone who is suffering!  :)

Zofran. 

I've taken one and I'm like... I still have nausea but I can eat without it getting worse... it's not severe nausea, I don't have to lay on the couch to manage it, so I can deal with it. I guess on the plus side if it doesn't COMPLETELY get rid of the nausea, I'll constantly have that "im pregnant!" reminder, but not be confined to the couch like I have been.

At Thanksgiving I got hit bad with nausea. And last night was horrible. I like ginger tea or just chewing on raw ginger. Always helps me.

 

I am craving mostly fresh foods, fruit/veggies. I am having a hard time getting in protein because the heaving feeling it leaves in my tummy make me nauseous.

post #38 of 46

*heavy* not heaving...

Maybe I'll try it and drink some before my dress rehearsal tonight and before the concert tomorrow. Not too much though or we might have a different problem. LOL.

Re: Craving, which may also be helping with nausea (not sure) is cinnamon.
