I'm finding Extra Strong Mints quite helpful at the moment, although my nausea isn't yet that bad as I'm only 6 weeks but in the previous pregnancies things like satsumas, grapefruit, peaches, Lychees helped quite a lot. Either quite tart or sour fruit or really clean fresh flavoured fruit both seemed to cut through the sicky feeling.
Forget keeping to a heathy diet, just eat what you can. I second the salted crisps and fat coke thing and getting lots of rest. I also found cheddar cheese and chopped apple was ok. Try brushing your teeth in the shower - standing upright meade me less likely to gag - and don't brush your teeth for at least an hour after eating.
Last time: nothing helped! Throwing up till 16 weeks. Eating made me worse.
This time: no throwing up yet, just nausea. Eating seems to help.
These seem to be helping me: cold orange squash by the gallon. Crunchy nut cornflakes + ice cold milk, plain crisps, cheese and cucumber sandwiches (?) Erm, that's about it.
Currently nibbling revolting stem ginger in vain hope it will help.
Can anyone recommend a brand / type of ginger biscuit that works well. Is it just good old ginger nuts or should they be of the "organic fairtrade handmade by blue goats in the Atlas mountains" variety?
I have learned that I have to brush my teeth first thing. If I do it after breakfast and coffee then I can definitely say goodbye to my breakfast, even if I didn't feel sick when I started brushing my teeth.
It did make me wonder though, if you throw up your first cup of coffee, can you take that off your daily caffeine allowance and start again? lol.
Fentimans Ginger beer is good, it's very gingery but not sugary like the old fashioned brands. Unfortunately it's quite pricey but I find it a good thing to drink when I'm in the pub as it's a bit more interesting than coke or lemonade, doesn't leave that furry feeling in your mouth that can also make you feel a bit "gaggy" and calms down the nausea. Just be careful because on various occasions when people have gone to buy me a Ginger Beer at the bar they have come back with Crabbies which is obviously a no-no and then I've had to make more of a song and dance than I'd like to about not being able to drink alcohol.
