If you can keep food down i highly recommend chocolate covered ginger....it really helped me quite a bit....or if you really like the taste of ginger i think you can get it uncovered

i am sorry you have that horrible of morning sickness, i hope it goes away for you soon....

There is a post on this back a page, more ideas there. Probiotics worked best for me.

Hmmm. I take probiotics. Maybe one capsule a day isn't enough. How much did you take?

Dr. Sears has a "24 ways to ease morning sickness" list on his site here: http://www.askdrsears.com/html/1/T010102.asp

A lot of it is common sense, but there might be something you hadn't thought of yet, or needed a reminder about.

Flavored but not sweetened seltzer water helps me somewhat. I like the lemon-lime flavor. Sleepytime Tea (Celestial Seasonings, it's like chamomile/peppermint) is also yummy to me right now.

Some people take B6 to help with m/s.

I'm banning onions and garlic from our house for the time being, and I'm trying to make everything as CLEAN and scent-free as possible when I'm this exhuasted. Even a tiny whiff of a strong scent kills me.


I hope it gets better for you soon!

Oh, honey, I feel for you. I had it until 13 w, 5 d. It was awful. The two things that were most useful were seabands (elastic wristbands I bought at CVS that press on your accupressure point that corresponds to nausea) and, believe it or not, 8 sips of coca-cola in the morning per my MW. the lower your blood sugar goes, the worse it gets. Walks outside really help, but I understand that it is too much to ask of a sick woman. Carbs helped me feel better.

same here - only zofran didn't work for me. They tried it, pheregan, and several others.

Compazine worked great though - just can't take it during the 1st tri.

and to the OP

I barfed pretty much every hour or so right up until the 12th week, and then once or twice a day after that for another week or so. Nothing kept me from being sick and I did not try taking medication. I focused on eating/drinking foods that were more or less pleasant to vomit and moving around as little as possible. I survived by drinking tiny sips of gatorade and Vanilla Ensure Plus--both room temp.

I sure hope you find something that works for you and you feel better really soon.
