ok hear is what worked or has been working for me. try the seabands. they are wrist bands that you can get at the pharmacy for sea sickness. just read the box to put them in the right place. i found my sister was wearing them wrong and was complaining they didn't work, her fault. some other things..gingerale or chocolate milk. pepermint gum and eat Many snacks all day. try different prenatal vit. i found that i could not take the prescribed one. my stomach could only handle the walmart brand. if you get up in the middle of the night have a gla__s of milk you should also have a gla__s of milk with your prenatal. oh yah and take that at night. now for the suggestion from my OB..B6 vitamin and a half of a Unisom before bed. B6 (50mg) helps with sickness. the 1/2 a pill of unisom does also. the Unisom has to be taken with the B6, the B6 can be taken alone if you wish to just take the B6. i tried it lastnight and my morning was good. I was told by my doctor that they are both safe to take during pregnancy. If i didn't believe her i would just suffer instead of putting my baby in harm. I would check with you r OB before trying it.

i found this on a pregnancy website... At 6 weeks pregnant.... The placenta is rapidly developing, however, it will not take over hormone production until about week 12. EATING FOR TWO * Avoiding morning sickness can be a challenge. Here are some tips that should help: * Before bedtime, eat a protein snack that contains some natural starch or sugars. * When the alarm clock sounds, nibble on crackers before getting out of bed and wait 20 minutes before rising. * For breakfast, limit fats and have fruit or juices at the end of the meal. * Ginger has been found to be effective in treating nausea: Try chewing on natural gingersnaps (made with real ginger), candied ginger, drink some ginger "beer" (nonalcoholic) or tea, or take in capsule form. * You can also take 50 mg of vitamin B6 twice a day, but never exceed 200 mg in one day. Or you may try yogurt, which is a natural way to load up on B6. * In some cases, eating a high-carbohydrate diet seems to help alleviate nausea. * A high-protein diet, which includes soy, milk, cheese and fish, also may help. * Most important, eat frequent small meals and always keep an emergency snack of a banana or crackers in your purse so you aren't caught empty-handed.

Trina... my ob prescribed diclectin .. which is a pill containing B6 and an antihistamine (safe to take).. Works great for me...See if there's something your dr can prescribe for you..These are all great suggestions and may help but if they don't you'll need something prescribed for you.

I was also prescribed Diclectin. I have a history of miscarriage & the Dr a__sured us it was completely safe. It has helped a lot. I still have bad days but it's made a world of difference.
