The m/s has started earlier this time than the previous three PGcies. It actually started right around the time AF was due, but it's been very mild. But I'm already at the point that many other folks have mentioned - I need to eat alllll the time! Grrrr.
I used the Morning Sickness Magic during the last PGcy (which ended in m/c around 10-11 weeks) and I felt that it worked pretty well. My m/s with that PGcy was horrible, but I also feel that much of it was stress-related (totally unplanned PGcy, first year in school again, etc).
I never tried the sea-bands, but a classmate of mine used them and said that it helped take the edge off.
Jilian, could you share the ginger smoothie recipe?
I HATE LOATHE DESPISE ginger - I had to choke down the MSMagic b/c it smelled and tasted like it - so I would love a way of getting it down without having to torture myself. Straws are great for getting things down without tasting them!
Gingerale didn't work for me either, unless I got the "real" ginergerale from the co-op - but then it was so ginger-y I couldn't stand it!
I got so sick of peppermint (which used to be one of my favorite smells/tastes) during the last PGcy b/c I sucked down an entire bag of mints in a two week period. It took me months before I could tolerate the sight of a little peppermint!
Oh boy, really not looking forward to this part of things! I'd take L&D over this any day!
