I have recently found out that im pregnant and expecting our first child. We are extremely happy about this adn catn wait for the arrival of the lil one! One thing is tainting the experience and that is my severe morning sickness! I am struggling to keep any food down. Any fluids are even hard to keep down. I have tried the ginger, b6, dry crackers, flat lemonade, tea etc and nothing has been working. My dr prescribed me some Maxolon, anti nausea tabs and they are also coming back up! I have another appointment with him on Tues but was wondering if there was anything you tried and found worked for you?? Thanks heaps!!

Firstly congratulations kyliepops, looks like the trip to Hawaii was a success! lol Oh I remember those days quite well (the whole of my both pregnancies) to be exact. I was on medication for my first but that was taken off the market as they found side effects. I tried all other remedies but found the one that worked for me was lifesavers peppermint and used to suck on them!

CONGRATULATIONS on the pregnancy I drank herbal tea pepermint and Giner that worked wonders for me... I tried to always snack lots on foods that would soak up the acid in my stomoch... Antiacid tablets were great too Mint flavoured alixir for upset tums helps.. Good Luck with Everything Hope all goes very well for you all...

I wish I could help you. Oh, forgot to ask you the other day, did you try the peppermint oil? I think we will have to get you an appointment with a chinese doctor for some accupuncture to see if that works. Anyway, for your sake I hope that your morning sickness is very short lived and you're back to your usual non sick self and can start enjoying your pregnancy. Just rest up for now.

Congratulations now I know all about morning sickness as I had this always until my third child ok but during this one I was married to a different man and he was very smart with his ideas and he told me to drink hot water with lemon in it with sugar so that I liked it and I did every morning and within 10 minutes this dreadful feeling of morning sickness left me wow was I ever so pleased to think that a man could stop this and it did so please try this as I tried everything under the sun with no success until I did this.

Listed below are some useful tips and natural remedies that may be helpful for nausea. If one remedy doesn't work, experiment with another: • Practise deep breathing, meditation, and yoga and try to take an hour's walk in the fresh air every day. • A protein-rich snack eaten half an hour before you go to bed in the evening will help to ensure that your blood sugar level doesn't fall too low during the night. • Try to remember to get up slowly out of bed and take your time in the morning. You may find a teaspoon of cider vinegar in a cup of warm water helpful first thing. • An infusion of grated ginger root may bring relief if drunk while you are feeling nauseous. • Increase the iron-rich foods in your diet, such as beef, sardines, eggs, dried fruit and green leafy vegetables. • If you have no appetite, take 10-20g of vitamin B6 as a daily supplement. • Try an audio-therapy CD. Similar to those developed for travel-sickness, CDs are now available to ease the symptoms of morning sickness. Frequencies and pulses, disguised by music, interrupt signals from your brain to your gut telling your body to be sick. • Aromatherapy. Use essential oils of lavender, chamomile, and rose (either singly or combined) mixed with a base oil, as a massage oil. You can also put a drop or two of one of these on a tissue and carry it with you. Hope this helps:)
