Just curious if any of you were finding anything helpful. I'm in the thick of it and feeling yucky...I don't like it b/c it's mentally draining. I haven't tried much accept to keep food in my stomach (difficult b/c I have no appetite).<br>
Wondering what others are finding helpful.... Did you start a 'remedy' when things were well under way?

I know this probably won't be popular but I had diclectin prescribed to me by an ob, mostly because the nausea I had was so debilitating that I hadn't eaten or drank anything in nearly a week. I had to have my DH carry me to my appointment because I was so weak. When she took my blood and urine, the ob found that I was actually dehydrated and in starvation-mode, so she insisted I take the diclectin so I could start eating and drinking again. It's helped and I can definitely eat a bit, despite the fact that I constantly burp and still feel mildly nauseous.<br><br>
I feel really guilty about taking meds to calm down the nausea, but seeing as<br>
I'm hypoglycemic and that I have to eat every 2 to 3 hours, it was getting to be really challenging, so I caved!

Vitamin B6 really seems to help. I'm also eating really small meals. I'm pretty much over the nausea but was definitely enjoying the Preggie Pops and Queasy Drops that a friend gave me. Sucking on sour candy was instant relief.

I am getting relief from my nausea... if you read my previous posts, I wrote that I was FREAKING out because my nausea disappeared and I am only 8 wks. It just went away. I am still dog tired, hormonal, and feel icky, but my nausea just up and disappeared. Before that I was nauseated 24/7.

no relief. I'm 8w4d. it's worse now than at anytime in the past month, actually. wake up in the morning, it's there. going to sleep at night, it's there. anytime in between, it's there.<br><br>
ugh.<br><br>
only thing that keeps it at bay is eating, literally, every 35-40 minutes.

My MIL recommended Emetrol to me and it really works. Apparently, I have too little acid in my stomach and that's when it starts hurting. Found out by accident that Coke has the same ingrediant as Emetrol. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm gonna have to check if the caffiene-free version has it too.

So weird...I am not a big soda drinker and I have completely cut caffiene...BUT everytime I have/order (a much-craved-for) coke, I can eat a full meal. I crave coke all the time now...I looked up Emetrol and it is just sugar and acid?? No info on safefetus.com, but it seems safe?? My morning sickness is making me so down...I know it isn't as bad as some!

I did a search for Emetrol here and everything I could find said it was fine.

Just had to say the combination of the title of this thread and your user name made me chuckle. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I have felt a bit better the last couple days, knock on wood. I will be exactly 12 weeks on Thanksgiving, and I really hope I feel better because I am cooking!

Thanks for all the replies.... I forgot that I've been drinking a coke a day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: I literally can't help myself...it's all I can do to not have sixpack of the stuff. I *never* drink anything but water when I'm not pregnant....I just don't really care for soda/juice or whatever. Then I get pregnant and start drinking crap..... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br>
Now I have my dd's cold coming on with the worst sore throat ever....<br><br>
Sorry for all the griping but whatayagonnado.

My queasiness just started on the first day of the 8th week! I can't believe it. I was feeling pretty cocky about how good I was feeling every day. I am on progesterone supplements, which I start weaning off of next week. I'm hoping that will help.

I 8w 2d and ms is still around. I have been able to eat real food though for the past week, not just crackers. I've been taking B6 and milk thistle, maybe that has helped or maybe it's just the timing. There are still certain smells though that really turn my stomach.

Mine finally stopped at 9 weeks, thang gosh. I love water with fresh lemon juice. Crackers are a must. But I began attempting to keep down a half a Ensure Plus in the morning and the other half at night to get some nutrients in me because I couldn't eat. I lost weight infact. But that's all passed and I'm back to being a big pig when it comes to food!<br><br>
I hope this passes for you soon too.<br><br>
Oh and I hear B vitamins are great for m/s.

Eating before I even lift my head up in the morning helps -- keeping something next to my bed like crackers and almonds -- I munch on that and that seems to help. From my experience, a low grade nausea remains with me during the entire pregnancy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

The past few days I have noticed that I feel better everyday. The only thing that helped before was forcing myself to eat about 5 times a day.

I am feeling a little better on average too. Still some bad days, and always low-level ickies, but manageable compared to a couple of weeks ago. ACUPUNCTURE has helped I think! I've had three sessions now, and planning more. Also forcing myself to take walks, no matter how slowly, seems to help -- maybe the endorphins competing w. the hormones?

I'm starting to feel better (10 weeks and 1 day). For me, weeks 7 and 8 were the worst. So let that bring a little hope to those of you feeling horrid during week 8. Maybe you'll get lucky.<br><br>
I still have what someone else referred to perfectly as the "low-level ickies" pretty much all the time, and I still have to force myself to eat something bland (almonds, crackers) every 45 minutes or it gets rapidly worse, but I'll take it versus the full-blown nausea.<br><br>
BTW, I also take an expensive B complex vitamin three times a day with food. I think it helps a great deal.<br><br>
Good luck, everyone. The great news is that we're all getting closer to that sacred second trimester....

I sooo can't wait for Dec 15th when I hit 12 weeks. It was a magical day with my first pgcy - I was a new person <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I really, really hope to have that happen again, but preferably earlier!<br><br>
I had a couple of not-so-bad weeks, but last night and today are back to the "I want to die" feeling <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Ugh. I feel like such an awful mother when I can't do anything with DS. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:
