I had awful m/s with dd to the point of being put on bedrest and taking phenergan every 8 hours. This time around I just can't do that though with a toddler running around. I went and got some sea bands today and so far I haven't been sick but I still feel awful. Any other tips or tricks that might work? I'm also breastfeeding so it has to be a breastfeeding friendly remedy as well .

I am taking Zofran. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> (it is safe for nursing, btw)<br>
I have an appointment for acupuncture on Sunday and am hoping that will help, too.

This is my third pregnancy with extreme all day morning sickness and I've never found anything that gives any kind of significant relief (except Zofran during pregnancy #1 but I have vowed not to go there again). Although, today I tried something and it really seemed to help but we'll see if it stands the test of time. When it was getting bad this morning, I would force myself on to my step bench for just 5 minutes. All I did was step up and down so nothing major at all. It felt horrible at the time (especially since i was dry heaving through half of it) but as soon as I stopped I felt better instantly. I did this several times throughout the day and each time it helped. I'm going to try it again tomorrow.

I have moderate nausea, and I've been trying 50 mg of B6 three times a day, plus milk thistle three times a day, and ginger capsules whenever I feel a bit yuck.<br><br>
Like erin_brycesmom, exercise and moving around makes me feel a lot better. I usually feel really good when I am on a run or on the bike, and immediately after. It's convincing myself that I can get started and get through it that's the real problem.<br><br>
Finally, I read a reference to Ina May Gaskin giving homeopathic remedies that really helped women, and then I found this online: <a href="http://www.truestarhealth.com/Notes/2243000.html" target="_blank">Homeopathic MS Remedies</a>. I haven't tried it yet, because none of those descriptions really match how I feel exactly, but I want to try it.<br><br>
Good luck, mama.

I'm so sorry you guys are so sick. I dont get hg or m/s but I have seen this thread and thought it might help someone.<br><br><a href="http://www.midwiferytoday.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=7971&whichpage=1&SearchTerms=morning%2Csickness%2Ckombucha" target="_blank">http://www.midwiferytoday.com/forums...ess%2Ckombucha</a><br><br>
There is an argument that goes on in there but there is some good info I think. And one of the ladies gets really sick while pg.
