DH just doesn't get morning sickness. It took me about 10 minutes longer than my usual morning routine - which is already short for a woman, I think - because I was gagging in the sink and needing to eat in between showering and dressing.<br><br>
So, he's the one who is ready early, and he sits on the couch with his coat on to wait for me (we commute together when we get our act together). I just needed to eat more..

Sometimes getting it over with is the only thing that works.<br><br>
I don't work outside the house anymore but during my last pergnancy I had my morning routine down to an art:<br><br>
*wake up<br>
*eat a small snack<br>
*shower<br>
*put hair up<br>
*brush teeth<br>
*puke in bucket on bathroom counter<br>
*brush teeth again<br>
*get dressed<br>
*toast a bagel to eat in the car<br><br>
Brushing my teeth triggered the puking every time until about 15 weeks and it was just so much easier to get it over with if I already had something in my stomach to throw up. I also have an aversion to sticking my face ibn the toilet so I kept an icecream bucket for that purpose.

Maybe that's what I need to do - eat something so I have something to throw up! I had only orange juice at that point in the morning.

Uck. OJ is not such a great breakfast to puke up and probably is irritating your already sensitive stomach.<br><br>
The magic combo for me was Ritz crackers and peppermint tea. Some mornings I could even keep them down but if I couldn't it wasn't too bad to puke up.

Not in your ddc but I remember the morning sickness with my first. Blech.<br>
I would drink a glass of oj to make my self throw up - it did help! But, I only did it when I had somewhere to be in the morning, otherwise I did the early slow rise with lots of crackers and 7up. Not healthy, I know, but whatever it takes to get thru the day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

It's been a while sick I've been sick, but I do remember having the yuckiness all day and then at 9w I made myself throw up. It felt better the first time but after that I would throw up every day and it no longer felt better. My second pregnancy I wasn't sick but I was moody. My poor 1 year old would get yelled at so much and I was always mad. I haven't decided which is worse <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
I do know that when I was sick as long as I ate small things all day long I wouldn't feel as bad.<br><br>

I was blessed not to have m/s last pg. One day I thought it was starting, I realized I was just really hungry, so what I started doing was eating something as soon as I woke up so that I had energy to get through a shower.<br><br>
I also carried around things like almonds and fruit strips/dried fruit in case I ever just go so hungry I started to feel woozy. Seemed to help.

I didn't brush my teeth for about 3 months with my first pregnancy. I was pregnant with twins, I had the worst m/s all day long, and I just didn't want to make it worse.<br><br>
In my defense, I was on bedrest and I was single, so the only person around to complain was my dog!
