this! They are wonderful. It just sucks that (at least for the summer) I'm wearing them and long sleeves. But wowzers did they help today. I barely got out of bed this weekend and was wondering how I'd make it through work today. DD was an easy pregnancy no issues. This one, not so much.
I give up and got Zofran at my first prenatal appointment today. I just can't take it. That and I just discovered I'm not 12 weeks along but actually only 9 weeks, so the thought of three additional weeks of nausea was just too much for me. We'll see how well this works. It does seem to help quite a bit from taking my first dose. Not being able to eat the way I am used to was really upsetting to me because I have a history of eating disorder (binge / restrict type) and was majorly throwing me off.
SOOOOOOO thankful for this website and the all the knowledge everyone brings with them! First pregnancy, and I have felt nauseous since pretty much the first day......it REALLY kicked up around 6 weeks! I'm just nauseous all day long, and the evenings are the worst! I started taking generic zofran but that didn't touch it, so I starting taking a combo of generic phergen at night and zofran during the day.....which cause some SEVERE constipation. Once I met with my midwife, she convinced me to stop taking the meds, and I agreed because basically they weren't really relieving an symptoms. I will say the phergen did help me sleep better, but she suggested Benadryl instead.
I have been drinking mint tea, gatorade, eating crackers, ginger snaps, sucking on sour candy and have the sea sick bands....and NOTHING WORKS! I will say the ginger snaps relieve my symptoms for a few minutes and so does the mint tea, but that's about it.
I'm super pumped to try ginger ale, and the homeopathic meds suggested. I already take a raw prenatal vitamin with extra ginger and B6.....
Again, thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience!

I agree it is all about getting enough sleep! And, avoiding intense heat. I have been living in air conditioning and I don't even care right now. The minute I head outside the bile rises in my throat!
Well I thought that was over...until I puked again this morning! Arrgh this is worse than my other two pregnancies. Hopefully it was the last time!
