The all day sickness is killing me so I went to Wild Oats and stocked up on everything I can think of for helping to ease it.<br><br>
I got:<br><br>
Pregnancy tea<br>
Red Raspberry Leaf tea<br>
Spearmint EO (for sniffing)<br>
Ginger Honey (you can take it strait or put it in hot water to make tea or in bubbly water to make gingerale)<br>
Natural ginger ale<br>
Dried ginger - which I took one bite of and almost puked - dont think I will be taking that.<br>
B6 (I already get 20 mg in my prenatal and another 5 mg in a B6, B12, folic acid supplement I take but I want to take 100 mg to see if it helps).<br><br>
So heres to hoping some of this works for me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I have some of the ginger honey and it works. I usually have debilitating all day sickness but so far this has been helping. (knock on wood) I take a teaspoon and drink it down like a shot of alcohol, the take a drink of water to chase it.

... cuz today's not been so good to me.<br><br>
I moved on to one of the mint Preggie Pops. :puke I almost lost it after a few minutes. Guess that's not a good flavor for me.<br><br>
I need to hit the store and get some ginger tea and whatnot. But since I'm still in my pj's and it's 2:30 in the afternoon, I don't guess that's happening today. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

Yes it does. I don't like ginger or honey that's why I throw it down like a shot. I barely taste it that way. Oh, and don't try to smell it, I did that when I first opened it.

I'm so glad I read this post. I'm hoping to stay out of the hospital this time around. I've been doing better, eating small amounts often even when I don't want to, trying to drink lots of water, etc but each day I feel worse. I'm going to try to get a few things off that list tomorrow. Thanks for all the ideas!

So far the spearmint EO is really working for me. I have the bottle open on my desk and can just barely smell it but it really seems to be helping. I am also drinking the pregnancy tea right now which has spearmint in it and that is helping as well. I think keeping a full tummy is also helping. I start feeling REALLY bad when I am hungry.

I've heard this is good. It's the stuff you have with sushi, you know? Hot pink slices of pickled ginger. I happen to love it. Going to try to get some on the way home today.

You know I normally love it too - sashimi with wasabi and pickled ginger but even the thought of it right now is too much for me to handle.<br><br>
I am really enjoying the spearmint right now - plus it feels Christmassy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I really want some preggie pops but online shipping costs more than the actual pops and I cant find them around here. I need to keep looking. Where did you find them?
