I'm definitely not ready for food, but this is frustrating, I've tried tap water with sliced oranges and limes, tea, squash, and tonight hot honey and water.

All comes back up. This is frustrating!

Try ginger tea with some sugar in it. You can buy teabags or just make it with sliced ginger steeped in boiling water.

Ice poles or ice lollies are also a good way to get some fluids into your system.

Lucozade. Always the only thing that’s palatable with nausea.

Thanks for the liquid advice through smile
