morning sickness

3rd pregnancy 3rd time with morning sickness I guess I am just that lucky lol. It hit me on Monday and has stuck around. With my others I had it but this time I am sick in the morning and nauseous all day long. any tips would be appreciated? With my other pregnancy's I would get sick than feel just fine, I had it up until I delivered with dd and until about 5 months with my ds.

This is my 5th and I am sure I will get it this time as well. It doesn't usually hit me until around 7 weeks though and like you said, it has lasted anywhere from all the way through labor, to around 14 weeks. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this is an easy one! None of the conventional tricks ever worked for me, I just had to figure out what did. And each time it was something different. Just start experimenting and you will find your antidote Wink

This is only my second pregnancy, and like pp said, I didn't get morning sickness until 7 weeks and lasted until 11-12 weeks. One thing that helped me though was to have saltines by my side of the bed, and first thing I would do every morning was eat 3. It seemed to curb the sickness a little. GL! Hope you feel better Smile

I am super nauseous! IT is comforting but it sucks too. I always get nauseous early on but it usually goes away by the 2nd tri. My last pg was awful with nausea and this one is too I am sick feeling all day, can barely choke down anything to eat and even sipping water is yucky. I dont actually throw up but it is just as bad to me. I started on zofran today hopefully it helps!

I've been using these, and they work quite well (and immediately - at least for me):
http://www.psibands.com/

I bought them at Whole Foods, but I looked on the website for the bands and it looks like they sell them in lots of different stores.
Aside from that, just the usual tricks - saltines and ginger ale. I also found that the heartburn sometimes makes me even more nauseous, so I try to keep heartburn in check. I found some heartburn chewables specifically for pregnant women and they work great.

Time seems to be flying by so fast, I'm sure the morning sickness will be behind us soon!

Those PSI bands are cute-
I was just going to get motion sickness bands @ the store (they're not as cute) but they do the job!! (You can wear them on a ship, boat, blah blah to not get motion sickness, but they also work for morning sickness)
One of my close friends had bad morning sickness for a really really long time and I got her some and she said they helped a lot- I never knew about them during my first pregnancy but bought them for a fishing trip and read the back that mentioned morning sickness... couldnt hurt!!

The only thing that really helped me in my last pregnancy was zofran. However, zofran is terribly constipating.
A B6/Unisom combo turned me into a walking zombie and curbed the puking, but not the nausea. That was my doctor's first line of defense, but I don't remember the recommended dosage.
