1st Trimester

This helped my nausea, what's helped yours?

Hi all!  I'm on baby #2, had horrible sickness the first time around.. (threw up over 100 times)  and I'm not feeling so hot this time around either.... egh. 

 Last time Ensure drinks helped me a ton, sometimes when I felt like I couldn't eat they were really easy to take down on my stomach.  

 My friend said Rice Cakes helped her out quite a bit. I just purchased caramel one's, I dipped them in cool whip. I would have to agree and they'll continue to be on my list of foods to get that I can stomach. 

 What's helped you?

Re: This helped my nausea, what's helped yours?

  • Eating non-stop, pretty much whatever i'm craving....pb and bagels are working out for me, as are mini-twix.  I also wear sea bands and take b-6. I don't know if ANY of it is actually helping, as i have rolling nausea day and night, but I'm not getting sick.  So there's that.

  • When I wake up, I drink a huge glass of water. I have to eat constantly all day.

    I also started wearing sea-bands and taking b-6 yesterday.  I take 25mg twice a day with breakfast and dinner.  It is definitely helping me better especially after I eat.

  • I just bought seabands and b6 tonight...so we will see if that helps me any!
  • Last time the only thing that helped was eating non stop (especially things like baked potatoes and milk shakes). I gained 50 lbs. :-P

    This time lollipops and not eating much past mid-afternoon have helped me.


  • Lemon water

    I am having so much luck with the Psi Bands.  I'm like a new person.  Good luck!

  • The best thing that I have found is to eat.  All.Day.Long.

    I try to make as much of this healthy....but when something else sounds good, I have that.

  • zofran..and pepsid.the doc prescribed them, but thats b/c i lost 15 lbs and i was only 115 to start with, i couldn't stop burping, nothing stayed down.  Another thing that helps is i dont eat and drink liquids at the same time.  i noticed once i ate...then waited a few minutes to drink, i would keep things down a little more.

  • I hav'nt really thrown up but I as well have rolling nausea in the morning & evening. Sipping lemon water works the best for me. 

  • Gummy fruit snacks
  • Vitamin B6 and Unisom pills! I take a full 25mg of unisom (make sure they are the tablets and not gel caps) and 50mg of vitamin B6 together every night. I know...it sounds terrible to be pregnant and taking a sleeping pill....but my OB recommended it and it saved me from so much misery. Every week I do a one day trial and stop taking it to see if I'm finally getting out of the all day sickness phase.  So far no luck, but maybe week 13 will have better things in store for me.
  • I took a half of a unisom tablet every night before I went to bed.  It stopped morning sickness with my last pregnancy 16 years ago and curbed my nausea with this one! I would however, consult your doctor before you take it.  My midwife said it was just fine.

  • Bananas are the only thing that works for me!  When I wake up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, I'll have a piece of a banana, and I'll have another piece when I wake up for the day.  If I don't eat a banana, I will throw up, but when I eat the banana, I do not throw up!  Yay!  
  • I am just over 10 weeks and so far: Lemon drops and other hard candies, water with lemon in it, sprite, saltine crackers, eating small bland meals, and a lot of fruit seems to help me. I work the night shift and I find the late nights/early mornings are when I am the most nauseous...yay :/

    At least I feel better on my days off and I am starting to be able to keep more food down and more food sound good again. For a while I wasn't able to eat meat, especially red meat.

    I'm in the night shift frenzy as well... Still haven't found my fix just yet... trying to eat more times a day than the usual two I find time for.  My cravings change everyday, making buying ahead impossible.

     Hope things keep mellowing out for ya!!!

  • I am trying ginger infused water.

    Boil about 4 cups of water.

    Slice up some ginger root (about 2-3 chunks per cup of water).  Place in a tea strainer and let it sit in the boiling water for about 5-7 minutes (like a tea bag).

    Add 1 tsp. of brown sugar per cup of water and a few drops of lime juice to kill any overly sweet flavors.

    Let it cool in the fridge if you prefer a cold drink.

    I have no vomiting but pretty constant nausea all day long, so just having something to sip on helps me cope, and I know you are supposed to be drinking lots of water during pregnancy.  I have also had some relief with smoothies.  If you make your own at home you can add the ginger root to the food processor/blender.

  • eating all day!

    ginger for me too. Reeds crystallized ginger or Chimes ginger chews any time i feel queasy. my purse is stocked with them.

  • Eating all day is kind of helping, but making me a giant fatty and nobody wants that!

  • Sleep!  And eating every couple hours...but I can really tell the difference when I get sleep : )

  • I had horrible nausea with my first pregnancy that lasted until I delivered. I was on Phenergan, then Zofran for the duration. It stopped me from throwing up, but didn't always work on the nausea.

    This time I have a new OBGYN that recommended Unisom and B6 before bed. Since Zofran hasn't made a dent in the nausea this time, I tried it. I cannot believe how good I feel. As long as I take the meds before bed, I am almost 100% nausea-free. It's a lifesaver.

  • Sucking on limes or anything that contained limes helped a lot. I ate limes and had my fridge full of sprite and 7-Up. Also, eating small portions helped a lot with my morning sickness.

  • I can't eat any meat or dairy without being sick. So basically all I am eating right now is vegetable soup with lots of snacks during the day. My favorite snacks right now are: fruit (sliced green apples, banana, grapes, cherries, blackberries), English muffins toasted until extra dry, coconut water, apple sauce, graham crackers, Popsicles and hard candy.
