Here are the things I did to control my "morning sickness":
- Crackers in the morning (and pretty much all day long) when I got tired of crackers I switched to pretzels.
- Ginger everything including gum, fresh, candy, tea, soda, mints, and crystalized ginger.
- I wore a Sea-band everyday but I wish I had known about Psi bands.
- Preggie pops and other hard candy were always close by.
At around 10 weeks my doctor gave me a prescription for Zofran. I hesitated taking any medication until I couldn't handle it anymore. Zofran was not a miracle pill for me but it did control most of my vomiting. The only way to describe to people what I was going through was by telling them that I felt like I was on a moving boat all the time. The only time that I actually got some rest from my nausea was when I went swimming. I also read a lot of articles suggesting things like getting out of bed slowly, eating bland foods, and keeping hydrated. I tried a cocktail of things and I somehow got through it. The nausea never really went away but the vomiting slowed down a few weeks before my little buttercup was born.
I hope everyone out there has a better pregnancy than I did or at least I hope your nausea is not as bad.
