Morning Sickness remedies?

  1. I am 12 weeks pregnant and I thought the constant nausea/seasickness feeling would be over by now! (It started at four weeks).

    I'm on Diclegis and it works and it doesn't.

    I'm able to keep stuff down for the most part, I am just always nauseated. Always. I am in misery.

    I will take any and all suggestions.

    Stella Dora breadsticks - sesame seeds.

    Whenever I would start looking at the breadstix in the store and it coincided with some nausea, I put the 2 + 2 together and bought a PG kit.

    Breadstix worked for me!

    With Kid 1 my morning sickness was like clockwork - every morning around 0500 when I got up to pee for the first time and by noon it was gone. Went away forever at exactly 13 weeks. With Kid 2 I was nauseated around the clock for about 24-26 weeks. I think I threw up for the last time sometime around 24 weeks while brushing my teeth. It was awful. Almost complete aversion to food. I think I lived off plain Eggo waffles and lemon flavored Italian ice and almonds (not all at the same time, lol).

    I don't have any magic tricks, because when it was bad with Kid 2, there was nothing that worked for it. I'll just commiserate with you because I remember that feeling....the constant ick that just never lifts. Hang in there. xo

    Thanks ladies! I am 17 weeks tomorrow and I've had maybe two days since January wherein I haven't woken up and dry heaved. It's easier to ignore, however. I am able to keep mostly everything down so I know I have it better than several women.

    What tended to work for me, unfortunately, was greasy, hangover food (Chinese food, fast food). I think it was the salt, honestly, because my own home cooking has little to no sodium in it and I have not been able to eat a lot of what I cook. I used to make skinless boneless chicken breasts at least three times per week but that especially makes me want to run for the hills. I'm still not 100% on grilled chicken but I can eat it in some salads so I don't classify that as a food aversion exactly.

    No cravings, either - my Panda Express desires I believe were more related to wanting salty but less greasy foods that were readily available. Although now I really really really REALLY want a Cheerwine and it is not sold within at least 150 miles of me.

    (And I also want to clarify that I am NOT seeking medical advice; rather, I'm interested in others' stories, old wives' tales and non-pharmacological ways that have worked for others.)
