To feel better in the morning, when it's the hardest to feed yourself, try a snack with carb and protein right before you go to bed. I feel amazing (well relative to feeling horrible, anyhow) when I eat a toasted whole-wheat english muffin and peanut butter right before bed (brushing teeth becomes a little difficult with this, it's true, but you can put that off til morning). Some other mommas have mentioned cottage or other cheese, maybe with crackers. Also, saltine-type crackers before you even get up and move around in the morning. You just have to shove it down, you won't want or enjoy it.
Also, I've been making ginger "tea" by slicing or grating fresh ginger and pouring hot water over it, letting it steep about five minutes or more. I sip it with whatever I'm eating and that seems to keep the "post-eating sickness" at bay. You could make a bunch of the ginger tea and then cool it if cold drinks sound better (I've been liking hot, actually).
Hope you (and everyone!) feels better soon.
Ditto to whoever said fresh air.. a little walk outside can be super. Also, just let yourself go slooooooooooow. Hurrying is the absolute worst! (You have to decide if the trade-off in sleep is worth it, but I get up a little earlier so I can go very slow in the morning, even get a little rest time after eating)
