There was a specific recipe for all-day nausea that I've been using when my stomach gets gnarly on me for the last couple weeks...
1/2 to 1t apple cider vinegar (I use the lesser)
1 spoonful of honey
mix into a tall glass of water. It tastes kind of like a lemonadey weak apple juice. It's pretty bland, but drinkable, and the vinegar helps settle my stomach and the honey supposedly does good things for the blood sugar. All I know is that I drink a glass of this stuff when I'm starting to feel nauseous and a few minutes after it's down I feel more stable. ANd I can eat crackers and start moving up the food chain from there.
Eating apples helped me a lot in my last pregnancy when I was nauseous.
I'm going to try both the honey and the honey/vinegar recipe--both sound ok to me right now, thanks!

It's just awful, i don't get waves of nausea I have it all day and night long. It wakes me up in the middle of the night and then keeps me awake. How am I going to get through this??? I cringe when I think of having to prepare food for my 3 other children or even change a diaper. How do some women escape this dreadfullness all together?? What does my body not like about being pregnant???? I need help!
I have 3 other kiddos, too, and am a little worried. I'm hoping they'll distract me, but I have the all-day issue, too and am being kept up at night by this icky feeling in my stomach. I don't think my body likes hcg at all. It lasts the whole pregnancy for me, too--but maybe this time will be different.
I've been sucking Gin-Gins--ginger hard candy made by The Ginger People. Got it at the health food store. If I suck on them constantly, one after the other, it actually helps.
I get tons of saliva, too, that I have to spit out or else it makes me sicker. Does anyone else get that? It's way yucky.
