OK-so I think it's starting. I get waves of this weird feeling like I want to puke, but I don't. I feel dizzy so I eat. This morning I ate some cheese and had to eat about 3 popsicles to get the gross taste out of my mouth. I tried to eat a turkey burger but it smelled disgusting.<br><br>
Stupid question-is this morning sickness. I haven't thrown up yet-it's not nausea like motion sickness more like bouts of smells being disgusting, and awful tastes in my mouth-is the puking coming? I know ginger helps, but how else can you have ginger besides ginger ale?

Sounds like the morning sickness fairy is visiting you... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><br><br>
She stopped in here and spred her special m/s dust earlier this week. I'm just praying it isn't like my last pregnancy.

I bought ginger ale and taking sips helps- nausea is coming-but mostly awful heartburn!

re: Ginger<br><br>
When the nausea gets bad, I've been known to take a bite out of a knob of fresh ginger. Stops it right in its tracks. Of course, you have to have a tolerance for hot/spicy in order to deal with this.<br><br>
Other ways to have it are:
<ul><li>Pickled (as it is served with sushi)</li>
<li>Make ginger tea</li>
<li>Have gingersnaps</li>
<li>Grated over a big bowl of blueberries</li>
<li>Candied ginger (homemade or store bought - homemade has the virtue of flavoring the simple syrup it's being treated in. You can use that syrup as a beverage base)</li>
</ul>

I have heard taking Cod Liver Oil supplements helps. I have been doing so since finding out I was pregnant and have had very little problem so far. I never threw up with either of my other pregnancies just don't want to eat much that first trimester. Nothing ever tastes right.<br>
The ginger does help.

Thanks everyone! I sent DP to the store and she brought me back some pickled ginger. It helps. I however cannot eat anything besides crackers, juice and bagels. Even the idea of a cup of milk makes me nauseous!

Yup, thats M/S. With DD the one thing I could keep down and not get nauseated on was a bean burrito<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> .<br>
I got a sublingual homeopathic spray at the health food store that is supposed to help with M/S this time. I don't know it it will work, but if mine gets that bad again...I'll try anything!!

Yeah definitely morning sickness! Luckily it only usually lasts 12 weeks. LOL<br>
But really I only threw up a couple of times with my DS but constantly felt sick. Sometimes I thought it would be better just to throw up and get it over with.<br>
This time I usually only feel sick when I need to eat something but the feeling sick makes me not want to eat. So I'm trying to eat very small meals every few hours of whatever sounds good and that is helping a lot.
