I'm from Sydney, NB and I'm 7 weeks pregnant with 1st baby. I'm experiencing some mild nauseas and it is worse at evenings until I go to bed.
This has been TERRIBLE as I'm finding hard to go to work, to go to any social events and to do any exercise.
I have tried all the tricks like: smell limes, eat a cracker before you get up in the morning, eat some snacks regularly, etc.... but NOTHING seems to work for me.
I really need some HELP!!!!! How are you feeling and what your are doing?????

A lot of my friends swear by having something ginger (like the sea sickness tablets, or ginger beer, or ginger and lemongrass tea) but this does not work for me personally.
I havent given it a try as yet (mostly because I just havent been able to get to the shops), but for my first pregnancy I alternated between having Chuppa chups (when I absolutely couldnt keep anything down), and bags of pretzels when I could eat.
If you are really sick, you can ask your GP for a prescription for Maxalon which is an anti nausea medication.
Good luck OP!

I am been taking blackmores morning sickness tablets they have vitamin B and ginger in them. They seem to help a bit. Another thing I found was taking pregnancy vitamins like Elevit first thing in the morning with breakfast also made me feel worse.

I too suffer from bad nausea, and I find if I eat a protein meal soon before bed it makes my mornings a bit more bearable. Haven't found anything that works for the PM though....spent my commute home from work feeling like I was dying :'-(

Ginger ale helps and dry biscuits like saos
But in all honesty get some maxolon! No need to be a hero you'll feel 10 x better and if it's really bad zofran is the shizz but it it uber expensive ( it's a drug they give to chemo patients so it's very effective!)

Hope it passes soon CassieC, congratulations on your pregnancy.
I had rotten nausea and something to suck really helped me. Lifesavers were my 'lifesaver' especially at work where crackers or ginger would have been a giveaway.
Mine disappeared at 9+1 and after that I only had a few random attacks.
Oh, and I used a gel toothpaste with mouthwash and made sure I'd drunk some water before, and switched to a kids toothbrush - all of that stopped me from throwing up mid-brush. My other tip is to take your vitamins with a smoothie/juice/cordial but ideally a milk drink and definitely not water - before I cottoned onto this I was sometimes having 3 goes at my vitamins.

It's the worst!! Zofran is great, I had hypermesis gravidarium so was taking the zofran and also restavit. Restavit also helps with sleeping:-) The only things that really helped me besides medication were frozen things. So frozen raspberry Lipton ice tea, icy poles especially if a bit sour were great, otherwise crushed ice and a sliced lemon in a tall glass with a bit of water. Hope you feel better soon!

I am 7 weeks with my third pregnancy ATM and from experience being easy on yourself and just gritting your teeth and getting through it for the next couple of weeks. It feels like it will never end, but it does. Suck on something, and protein foods helps me.

Thanks for asking. Ginger stuff is working for me - I bought blackmores morning sickness capsulas and ginger beer (it has a horrible taste, but I'm happy to drink it if keeps working).

Are you taking pregnancy vitamins? Sometimes the wrong product can cause unwarranted nausea.
If all you can keep down is ginger beer then just drink that - however seek advice from your caregiver because there are products that can help.

Yeah 5kg is a lot to lose - especially if you dont have much to lose in the first place! Last pregnancy I had only put on what my baby, placenta etc weighed and so the OB was really worried about me having a low birth weight baby. The heaviest I got at 40+10 was 48kg!
I was really hoping to get a head start this time round and stack on the kgs before I started being sick.... the morning I got my BFP I vomited up breakfast Not the start I was hoping for....
