I've tried salt under the tongue, ginger, 7up, peppermint, orange juice and other citrus fruits. Everything worked for a little while but I'm constantly sick....ALL DAY! And I sleep during the day and stay up at night. If it were just me, I wouldn't complain but, I have 3 other little ones to take care of. Is there anything that can give me an extra boost that isn't harmful to the baby? Also need tips for nausea. I'm trying to avoid medication

I never tried it but there are these bracelets that are for motion sickness that I have heard good things about. Probably sold at a boating store. Also, there is a homeopathic called Nux Vomica that helped me.

I hope this issue passes quickly for you. <3

Yes, I forgot about that. Also, maybe a cold protein drink, little sips all day through a straw, might help. <3

I found that I could avoid nausea as long as I ate high protein snacks every 2 hours or so. I kept things like cheese squares, nuts, hard boiled eggs and protein bars on hand and it did the trick. Simple carbs like bread and crackers were also good when I was really unsettled.

I second everyone else who said protein. I snacked on a lot of almonds and and protein shakes, and tried to avoid all the things with no nutrition that I was craving. I would always eat something high in protein right before going to bed, which would help me feel better when I woke up.

Protein and Fat had to more than double for me to start feeling better.

Also, water kefir - something about the probiotics really helped.

Oh - and I needed to eat once or twice in the middle of the night or else I couldn't sleep.  I'd be too tired to get up but to low blood sugar and nauseous to fall asleep.  Food on the night stand helped.

For a while I had to do some lighter proteins (or what felt light to me):  Salmon, quinoa, beans.  Had a couple months when red meat and eggs didn't taste right or sit well.

I crave beans a lot and I have noticed that I feel a lot better after eating them. Is Ensure considered a protein drink? I've been wanting some ALL DAY today but too sick to go to the store :-/ I'll have to settle for this Ben & Jerry's ice cream instead....*sigh* poor me lol

Pro biotics helped for five minutes for me - till I threw them up . I threw up every remedy . Gogi berries taste horrible and didht work , neither did aloe ir ginger . It was the worst 12 weeks if my life . I can really sympathize , truly . Chasing remedies I guess took my mind off my misery . Accupuncture got me upright and worked each time I got it - but only for that day . At 80$ per session i got disgusted with that too . I also hypersalivated so much I had to teach with a spit cup at my desk and pretend to drink when I was actually spitting . That cup filled up about 8oz / hour . The only thing I can suggest is hang in there think about ur baby and remember that it will pass !

beef jerky :) I swear by it, its such a small amount of food, no real issue of heartburn or indigestion for me and super high amounts of protein.

The bracelets (Sea Bands) I think helped me a little. Everyone is so different. For me my "cure" was to just eat all the time - never let my belly get empty. And I had to eat heavy foods that would weigh my stomach down and take a while to digest. Think pizza, fast food, cheesesteak. I'm sure I could have made healthier choices and been ok, but that was working for me and I had no energy to cook or really think beyond getting something into my belly RIGHT NOW.
