I know a few were suggested in another thread, like peppermint oil..

Since I'm in the middle of awful nausea, I thought maybe we could share some of our personal remedies for this lovely pregnancy symptom.

Peppermint oil on the bottoms of your feet... I would take a cotton swab and rub it on the soles of my feet and it would help. You can even rub it on your tummy around the belly button. I also tried milk thistle and the acupressure point in my forearm which helped for a few days but wasn't consistent.

The only thing that helped with the waves of nausea was sucking on hard candies. Like, werthers or jolly ranchers

Thanks for the link to the NCB board, I really appreciate that. I'm going to have to pick up some peppermint oil and milk thistle. This nausea is insane. Who gets nausea starting at 3 weeks 4 days? That would be me. Ugh.

I had hyperemesis, so not much helped, but milk thistle was ok. (at least it allowed me a few calories I could manage to keep down!) and ginger scented candles helped me, especially in the bath or when I wouldn't sleep. Eating every 2 hrs around the clock, even if only a few crackers, was the best thing I could do.

I'm having terrible nausea too, and I can't eat/drink anything at work so it's been really tough. Today was the hardest. Thank goodness I only work a few hours each week!

I am finding that eating actually helps a lot. Also, ginger tea, and peppermint tea have really been helping. Fruity pops like Sprite or Sunkist seem to help too. I also have candied ginger, but I don't like the way it tastes. I'm going to see if I can wear the sea-bands at work, because I have to stand up straight, and can't use any of my other remedies.

I'm really curious about some of those herbal liquid concoctions - and about the hazelwood necklaces from inspiredbyfinn. I like the idea of the peppermint oil on the feetsies too.
