My morning sickness has been getting worse every day. Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with this?

It's bad here too. I did call the doctor and get a prescription for Zofran, because last pregnancy I was nauseous for 14 weeks...

Drink lots of water, I drink lemonade for a change when I'm feeling sick. They say ginger helps: ginger snaps, ginger ale. I also eat frequently...sometimes just a small thing of applesauce helps. I wear Sea Bands that you can buy to put on your wrists that press on the pressure points of your inner wrists. Being sick sucks during pregnancy, but I keep telling myself it's a good sign....

when i was pregnant with my first i had it until 19 weeks. i would walk into work everyday w/a half of lemon hanging out of my mouth, the sourness always calmed my tummy. also ginger ale helped, (ginger helps a lot) if it gets too bad, talk to your doctor and have them prescribe you "zofran" it is the miracle drug that ends nausea pretty much as soon as you take it.

sour lemon drop (like lemonheads or the preggie pops have sour candies). It was a MIRACLE for me! Flat ginger ale helped too

Zofran is pretty much the only thing that helps me. Also - drinking a lot of water helps!

I used to water down juice when I couldn't drink water.

I also read last night that vitamin B6 is supposed to help with nausea. Not sure how true that holds. Nothing but zofran helped me last pregnancy, but even then it only worked for a few weeks and then I developed a tolerance to it and back to being sick.

I hope you find something that helps!

I hope you find something that works! Mine has been off the charts this time, I've thrown up at least once a day, and up to 3+ times some days. That's not including the numerous times I've had dry-heaving fits in between. I haven't found anything that works so far I'm just trying to make sure I'm getting plenty of fluids, water and ginger ale, in an attempt to stay hydrated.

If water tastes bad, I would suggest maybe trying sparkling or seltzer water? I LOVE it. The carbonation gives even the plain sparkling water a different "taste" and the carbonation makes it goes down a little easier. It also seems to ease my nausea a little bit, even if it's temporary. Sparkling/seltzer water is also a known natural stomach settler, too.I also like the lemon flavored sparkling water. Maybe give that a try?
