Ah poor mama, I've been there (4 times!!)
I'm not in any DDC, but totally have sympathy for mama suffering with severe nausea/sickness.
When all-day sickness is so severe that you are throwing up 7 to 14 times a day and/or have trouble keeping food or water down, I would highly recomend meds.
I took meds for my 4th pregnancy, and should of for the other pregnancies... it was a life saver. In canada it's called Diclecting (vitamin B with anti-histamines) and I could finally eat and drink!!
Things that helped with sickness when it wasn't severe were: Preggie Pops (the sour flavors) , Gatorade (the clear flavors) and not mixing drinking liquids with eating solids. And absolutely nothing remotely oily, those were so hard to digest. White bread (yup, the cheap unhealthy kind) helped too and never waiting to be hungry to eat.
I don't recommend nuts because of the oil content and the fact that they are hard to throw-up.
