    Can I say all of the above?  I've used Psi/sea bands, ginger ale, crackers, lemonade, mints, eating several small meals.  Using a combination helps keep it under control.

    I would say a mix of the above in addition to getting out for some fresh air and lots of rest.  For me, ginger beer (it's non-alcoholic) worked well as did sparkling water and small meals in the evening (when m/s was worse for me) that were mostly neutral, like air-popped popcorn, some apple slices and cheese, daily walks at a leisurely pace and tons of rest.

    I found that hot foods were the worse for my stomach (temperature-wise and spice-wise), so on extra nauseous evenings I made myself a berry smoothie and just worked my way through it slowly.

    My nausea bout was really short - only about 2 weeks, so this is just what worked for me.  If it  had been much worse or for longer periods of time, I would've talked to my doctor about getting on some medication for it.

  • my main go-to with DS was sour jolly ranchers, but eating small snacks frequently helped as well, especially ginger cookies.

    In general, not letting my stomach get empty is key, but now I'm getting sick no matter what I do! Whatever does give me some relief only lasts a couple days, then seems to make me sick, too. Cherry Jolly Ranchers have been helpful to keep my stomach somewhat calm when I have meetings, and Vanilla Polar Seltzer or sparkling water helps when I can't get down plain water. If I do find something, I will report back!
    I'm with you on the bolded.  This is why I am taking Zofran even though it gives me horrible constipation (thus taking with Colace and Miralax).  It was definitely a last resort for me.

    protein, especially at breakfast 

    When it was bad, the crystalized ginger candy was the best for immediate relief.

    January PAL siggie challenge; Good advice:

  • I put medicine since I credit Zofran for keeping me from puking every day.  However, sea bands and nibbling on things like fruit, cheese, and crackers helped me feel sort of ok.  Sometimes.  Or I should say kept me functioning instead of a crying mess of doom on the floor every day.

  • I loved preggie pops but it also helped to have DH bring me a carby/ bready breakfast in bed. I couldn't even sit up without puking so DH would bring me food and I would literally eat it laying down until I had the energy to sit up and hopefully not throw up.

  • I've noticed hot tea helps for me. Weird. Noy sure if it's because the little bit of caffeine helps or what. And always eating small meals.

  • What worked was sort of a moving target for me.  And I use the word "worked" lightly; more like, stayed down.  The things I tried that weren't on the list above and had some success with were: regular Coke and saltines, and keeping a tissue with a few drops of essential oils in a baggie in my purse (for when I was out in public and smelling all the smells was killing me).  Sniffing a little baggie probably looked weird, but was better than throwing up in public.  But, if you're going to throw up in public or the car and can't reach a bathroom, I found that the doggie poop pick up bags with tie handles work great.  ;)
