I wasn't feeling very pregnant, especially today, because I haven't had that many symptoms. I think I had more symptoms the cycles I wasn't pregnant!! All I've had is out of control sense of smell and cramping/pulling.

Well that all changed this afternoon. Crazy nauseousness and dry heaving. I have a super sensitive stomach, so I figured it would be like this. I don't plan on telling work for quite a few weeks, how am I going to play off morning sickness when our bathroom is horribly located for secret vomiting?

For you btdt moms, any advice for those of us new to ms?

I had awful morning sickness with my first. Here are some things I tried:

- Ginger is great! Try crystallized ginger or ginger suckers (preggie pops).

- Sea bands - these are for sea sickness. They look like sweatbands that have little plastic beads that align with pressure points on your wrists. This can be awesome for nausea.

- Waiting too long to eat (like when you sleep) can cause your blood sugar to plummet and bring on nausea. Keep crackers or peanuts by your bed and when you wake up at night, have a small snack to help avoid a huge wave of nausea in the morning.

- Avoid fatty foods, which take longer to digest, so they sit in your stomach longer and can bring on that vomitus feeling.

- Take prenatal vitamins at night before bed.

- Stay hydrated!

Sometimes you can't do much to help it, so if you start losing weight like crazy (I lost 25 lbs with my first - not good) and can't stay hydrated, call your doctor so they can get you some meds to help. Hopefully, it won't get that bad for you!

HTH!

I think this is exactly what i did wrong. Normally our weekend eating routine is a big breakfast and then don't eat again till dinner. I didn't eat that much at breakfast because everything tastes kind of off. And when i got sick was about 4pm after my stomach was good and empty.

NOTE TO SELF: eat more regularly!

Yup. Not eating often will do it. Hopefully, that will help immensely!

Britney had great advice.
I had terrible "progesterone poisoning" (I love hat term for m/s!) with my second. I was working, and often couldn't even make it to the bathroom. I was puking in sinks and trash cans all over the nursing home! I did have to tell because I got put on lifting restrictions immediately and coolant really do my job...but you could chalk it up to a gallbladder attack if you don't want ti announce.

I used to have a half peanut butter sandwich and milk right before bed with my prenatal, then have walnuts and sips of milk when I woke up at night. I never felt sick in the morning. As the day went on, I'd forget to eat or drink enough, and by evening, I was stuck by the toilet. With my second, I immediately bought or made a ton of easy snacks. I'd make meals before bedtime so that I could just reach in to grab something without having to spend time while getting sick trying to prepare. I could tell a HUGE difference on those days! I have GERD and have to eat small meals. If I don't keep eating those small meals throughout the day, the acid really increases and causes sickness!

I also ate olives. Massive amounts of olives. The saltiness overtook the bad taste. Saltines just made me gag more because they were dry!

When I was pregnant with DS, salentine crackers and sippy on a pepsi thru a straw would help me
