Would love to hear what has worked for others during pregnancy - with my son it was lemonade, this go round it doesnt work for me, and I'm dragging myself through the work day and feel horrible - any tried and true methods to stop the queasies???
I lost 12 pounds in the first trimester because I was so sick. Lemonade was my miracle cure as well. I also like sourdough bread. Have you tried the candies, Preggie Pops? They sell them at Babies R Us. They didn't really work for me but have heard they worked wonders for others so maybe that would help. But I just ate toast pretty much all day for those three months. I would make sure to eat before I even got out of bed. I have heard some put crackers by their bed and have a few before getting up. And it helped me if I took my prenatals at nite right before bed. I feel for ya... I hope you feel better soon!!
i used preggie pops when i was pregnant with my son. they worked for me.
the other thing i used were ginger candies and ginger&honey infusion. i made the infusion drink in the morning, strained it, and drunk it throughout the day.
dry crackers are meant to help although they didn't work for me.
for me I left crackers on my nightstand and had one everytime I woke up or went potty. I was going to say Lemonade because I drank it by the gallon but I see that's not working this time.
Have you tried Ginger Ale?
Preggie Pops helped me a lot. Some women swear by Biobands - non magnetic wrist bands that work on a pressure point on your wrist. My OB suggested them 0 they didn't work for me but I hear they work really well for some. This pregnancy the nausea and vomiting was so bad it was actually hyperemesis, and I was in bed for 6 weeks. I had to be on medication to decrease the vomiting, and required an IV a few times.
I used the preggie pops and they seemed to help a bit, but didn't eliminate it by any means. I also used Sea Bands for a couple of weeks when I was on vacation (including spending week 10 on a boat!!) and they seemed to work. The biggest thing that I did was just ate what I felt like eating, which most times was fruit, and didn't try to make myself eat anything that wasn't appealing. I also got a little bottle of ginger juice and kept it in the fridge at work. Then I'd sprinkle it in whatever tea I was drinking or in water with some lemon juice.
For me, smelling stuff rather than eating it helped too, since a lot of the time, bad smells would trigger the nausea - I carried around peppermint and lemon essential oils and would put a bit on a tissue or something and sniff it.
My sister in law is getting me some preggy pops - she saw them in Kohls by her house, so hopefully those will work. I was sick in bed with #1 for 5 weeks, so this one is def easier, but still feel awful at times. I have discovered that eating a yogurt and a glass on water in the morning right after my shower gets me at least to mid morning, and then I eat cheese sticks - apparently dairy is helping me, go figure!
Oh, that reminds me -- Stonyfield Farms' yogurt drink (I think they call it a smoothie, but it's not very thick, and is definitively not chunky at all) was another thing that sat well with me while I was feeling sick. I wasn't into regular yogurt with any sort of chunks or even the thicker texture, but the drink was good.
