Not pregnant but hoping!
Here's one in case a sticky is made!
#1: In my personal experience, prescription prenatals made my nausea worse. I've had really good luck with Rainbow Light Food Based Complete Prenatal Care.
- "sea bands" are wrist bands that put pressure at certain points on your wrists and relieve nausea. I found these to take the edge off, but not a major cure.
- ginger tea
- eating frequently
- getting out and being active, even though it was the last thing in the world I want to do, always helped
I also hear lemon candies help too.
The only thing that worked for me was giving birth. MS cleared up the very next day!
I didn't have any specific food or drink that seemed to help. Just eating a little bit every hour or two in order to keep blood sugar levels on an even keel helped me part of the time. But, golly, how awful to have to eat when you feel nauseous!! One of the few times in my life I actually got tired of having to eat . . .

Sometimes ginger helps but sometimes not. What helps more than anything is not allowing myself to get too hungry. In fact, my sickness almost always happens in the evening, so I think it could be low blood sugar making it worse.
I went to see my acupuncturist with migranes when I was pregnant and he also treated my severe morning sickness.

Also, bancha tea, ume plums, and vitex can help, too.
