WFMW- Morning sickness Remedies

For this first time I am experiencing morning sickness. My first two pregnancies I ate whatever I wanted and never had on iota of queasiness! But not with this little one, I was sick at 4 weeks 1 day!
So here is a few things that have helped me along the way the last 4 weeks. Not everything works all the time for me. But at least one of these things greatly reduced that horrible nausea!

were the first thing I tried, and they really did help me. I still use them 4 weeks later and they do still work for the most part. And of course they are all natural, so you don't have to worry about taking any pills.

Instead of saltine crackers, pretzels have really been the thing that has helped me. I just love them!

Of course things like Jello help too. I found the sugar free kind gave me heart burn though, so stick to the original Jello.

Also when I can eat, I try to eat things that are very high in protein. High protein diet for the last two weeks has all but make my morning sickness vanish!
One food that I found that I can get alot of protein out of is a veggie burger sandwich made with Ezekial bread.

Oh and try and figure what triggers the morning sickness if possible. For me its dairy, being tired and dehydration. Iv stayed away from dairy that last few weeks too, and I think that has helped big time.

And when all else has failed and I'm having a really bad day...I go to the morning sickness cocktail.
Iv only used this option twice. Take 50 mg vitamin B6 in the morning and again in the evening, and in the evening also take 1/2 of a Unisom ( 12.5 mg of Doxylamine Succinate), Sleep tabs, not the gel caps, those have a different ingredient in them. I'm telling this stuff works like a charm. Of course it will make you very drowsy!!!
PLEASE NOTE: I am not a medical professional. Talk to your Doctor or Midwife before taking any medication or vitamin. I talked with my Midwife before taking this!!!!
Well this is what has worked for me when it comes to that evil thing called morning sickness!!!

  1. Sour foods seemed to help me. Tangerine Altoids and Fanta Cherry Citrus soda were mainstays of my first trimester with my daughter!
