KG - April 7

I would love to know who named this nausea that never goes away morning sickness. I am nauseated all day long. I have to push myself to even get food down (and I really love to eat). Anyone have any remedies? My doctors office suggested Dramamine (over the counter) but I had an allergic reaction to it. I have also tried lemons, which has helped a little but not enough. HELP!!!!!

Hi, I have the same thing I also had it for my first pregnancy as well...I call it allday sickness and I even have it when I lasy down for bed at night!! I eat small amounts of food frequently it helps for a little bit. I am from Canada and I see my Dr. today and going to ask for diclecton I used it in my first pregnancy and it worked Diclectin (Doxylamine Succ Pyridoxine) Diclectin is a combination of vitamin B6 and antihistamine (doxylamine) specifically indicated and prescribed to treat nausea and vomiting of pregnancy. Diclectin is currently available only in Canada and has been used for two generations by more than 33 million women. good luck and i tell you ask your Dr. for it!!

maybe eating some crackers would help? im not for sure but i think i have heard some people saying that it helped them, also like Jacqui said eating small amounts of food through out the day should help. good luck!

i take mints.. i get heartburn when i get my allday sickness, so that helps enough to get a few bites down. the first couple weeks of my pregnancy i couldn't get enough to eat, now i'm lucky if i get a whole meal down in one day. My hubby is going to gain alot this pregnancy too cuz he's eating everything i don't :P i am also from canada, and i took diclectin for my last pregnancy. I found it helped alot for going to work, but it only seemed to supress the vomiting but i was still very nauseated. I've been told tum's are ok during pregnancy, so maybe give those a try. The best thing i've found so far though is just toast with margerine on it, or honey if you can stomach it. It puts something in there atleast, cuz no one likes bring up stomach acid. I hope you feel better, all of you!

KG, They should call it "Every-Waking-Moment Sickness". Try eating non-salted crackers BEFORE getting out of bed. Just keep a package close by your bed with a gla__s of water. My first few weeks were tough too, litterally had to force myself to chew and swallow. But it did help. As soon as you get out of bed brush your teeth with mint toothpaste, that does help me, a lot! Another thing that might help, supposedly (I haven't tried this), is non-caffinated mint tea. Good luck!
