Hi I am now pregnant and currently annoyed with morning sickness. I found some remedy tips from my research but I think it would be more reliable if I ask tips from moms here who found it effective.

Looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks

Depending on how severe it is, you may be able to get a prescription for something like Zofran to help with how you're feeling.

For me personally, I ate a 1/4cup of sunflower seeds each day. Apparently they have lots of B vitamins, which can help with morning sickness.

Gingerale was also helpful for me. I would also boil ginger root and drink the "tea" made from it.
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

I used ginger chews by the company Ginger People. Worked pretty well when actually nauseous to calm it down.

To prevent my morning sickness when I ended up with HG I took 100 mg b6 at night along with a Unisom tablet. Worked miracles!

I totally agree with the B vits and taking fresh ginger and slicing off a couple pieces and adding boiling water to it letting it steep for as long as you like. I just kept mine in it til it was drinkable and left it in.

Rest is important and eating small frequent light meals with protein.

Hope your feeling a bit better!!

The best way to fight morning sickness for me was to never allow my self to get hungry. Being dehydrated or hungry makes it much worse. Since morning sickness makes it difficult to eat try eating small meals frequently and always have some water with you. Plus the usual mild food helps a lot too. Things that really helped me prevent the my morning sickness from getting out of hand:
Drink a full glass of water when you wake up and have a small snack
Get fresh air
Eat mild foods, I loved snacking on dry cereal or eating raw almonds and walnuts
I always carried a snack in my purse and water in case I felt it coming on.
