If the candy helps, keep sucking on it. :) I know it may seem like a lot/unhealthy, but if it works, go for it in the meantime. It won't cause any lasting harm.
I really can't say when the nausea stops. Mine was bad from weeks 6-8 but has really seemed to go away this week/just hits in the occasional wave.
KendraJoette:It is pretty common for it to start getting better about 12-14 weeks... Mine was over at about 14.5 weeks last time, but it really just varries by each person. Some never get sick, some are sick the whole time (poor ladies!!) but for most it is just the first trimester and maybe a week or two into second. Hope that helps!

It's the same question I ask myself every day. Mine is still going strong at almost 13 weeks. :(
Don't feel guilty about the candy. One of the only foods I can keep down is potatoes, so I've definitely indulged in french fries a few times in the past few weeks (uncharacteristic for me generally) and today ate a whole mini can of pringles! I would feel guilty, but the doctor has told me to eat anything that sounds good, so that's what I'm doing, and I've still lost weight.
I'm nearly 8 weeks pregnant and this is my first post. The nausea started for me the weekend I found out I was pregnant at 4 weeks and has continued to the present. This is my first pregnancy so everything is super new for me. I was beginning to wonder the same thing as I'm not sure I can be this nauceous and tired the entire pregnancy. The only thing that keeps me going pretty good is eating super healthy (lots of fruits and veg) and drinking lots of water, and I try to eat smaller meals spread throughout the day if possible. I've only thrown up twice so far, thank goodness, and I was scarfing some serious saltines after the last one with water to settle my stomach.
I had very little nausea during my first trimester, but when I *DID* have it, my doctor prescribed Zofran. It's safe for pregnancy and nausea.
Did you never ask a doctor for help or were they just mean and didn't want to give you anything?

I think for most people who have really bad m/s, drugs like Zofran might help a little, but they don't stop us from throwing up altogether, and they don't do anything to stop the constant nausea. I know that's the case for me.
