Morning sickness = all day sickness...what to do for relief??
I'm not sure what you have been trying but here are some things that have helped me in the past:
1. Eat more protein
2. Eat/drink something acidic like squeezng a lemon into your water.
3. Just the smell of an orange or fresh ginger seems to help me.
4. I've heard sea bands help
5. resting helps me if that's a possibility.
6. Exercise first thing in the morning even if it's just walking.
Oranges, hm? I have some orange essential oil. Will have to give it a sniff! Anything is worth trying!!
I ended my day last night with cottage cheese and pineapple (protien and fat and good carb! Yay) and felt alarmingly good this morning lol- then had my eggs, still feeling better than yesterday.
I had awful morning sickness during my first pregnancy and the only thing that helped was medications. Motherrisk is a great service which offers a Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy Helpline (toll-free). Wow -I definitely recommend it. I took (and am taking) diclectin and gravol. They have also recommended zofran, which will be my next attempt if this doesn't work.
I was sick morning to evening, and evening was worse. I tried seabands, dietary changes, herbs, acupuncture. This time I've tried to get ahead of the sickness and so far so good.
I've heard diclectin is commonly used in Canada, but don't think it's available in the US. To to achieve the same results with the same ingredients, in the US it's recommended to take vitamin b6 and unisom. Nice that it's over the counter and not prescription. That's what I'm doing and it's incredible!
Like pp, I tried all the typical natural remedies- diet changes, seabands, insane amounts of ginger, nothing made the slightest difference, but the medication now has cured it.
