My midwife told me that they sell a tea there with ginger in it and that is basically the only thing besides eating a bunch of small meals a day. I just cant bring myself to eat. Everything sounds really gross right now. I called the herbal store and they said to take ginger capsules. Is there anything besides ginger? I know someone in my DDC mentioned B6. Has anyone used that?

Mint (I chew mint gum when I get car sick), ginger, and there is a medication someone just recommended to me, she said it's not really a medicine, but if you are vomiting, it's suppose to help. I'll look it up. I know a few others but they just aren't coming to me now.

My friend has used B6. She also said lemon drops and peppermint candies helped her. I hope you feel better.

Also, sometimes sour candies help- Preggo Pops are all natural and come in lots of yummy flavors! Candied ginger helped me, and I did a lot of Vit b6 too, and for the first few weeks all I could do is carry around a little baggie of cheerios and munch on a few every now and then...and lemon water!

I took Morning Sickness Magic which has ginger as well as B6 (plus some other things.) I was very, very sick again this pregnancy so it only helped for so long. I ended up using two different types of meds as well as taking B6 and unisom. It was 25mg B6 3 times a day and 1/2 a Unisom every 6 hours. Do check with your provider first.

(I was sick until around 13 weeks with DD and nearly 19 weeks with this little girl.)

Good luck!

I tried a preggy pop today- EWWWW! it was the purple, and I hope the other flavors are better, b/c they aren't cheap!

anyhow, smelling lavander extract helps some people, and many find that oranges help, or sweet orange extract.

for me eating loads of protien first thing, including a glass of milk, is helping.

when I felt queasy I would go for a walk. That worked best. Also preggo pops and candies but I didn't use those a lot because of all the sugar.

I have a recipe for a Ginger drink too, I never made it but it sounded tummy. I hope it passes fast for you honey!

there's also magnetic bracelets that are supposed to help. I think they are geared towards seasickness, but I've heard good things about using them for preggo morning sickness...


I probably shouldn't say this, but I've never had m/s so I don't have any personal experiences to help....

I forgot to mention Sea Bands. About $10 at the drug store, use the pressure points on your wrist. I wore mine for months.

I bought some B6 that I never used, heck I could send them to you if you want. I also have the SeaBands, and I want to get one of those metal magnetic ones.. those are good for a lot of things other than MS though.

I ditto to pretty much everything else though.. lemon drops, tangerine Altoids, ginger ale.. I hear pretty much anything citrus whether you eat or smell it. I also personally eat a lot when I can eat. I can only eat so much when I'm already to the point of feeling crappy but if I eat a good amount when I'm well enough to that helps a lot, and then keep on track with eating little stuff after that. If I get too hungry I feel like crap otherwise I feel fine.
