HOW do/did you cope with morning sickness

I am ALWAYS feeling sick. I'm 9 weeks now and am always running to the loo to throw up and I now sit there half way through being sick physically crying because I am so sick of feeling like this.

Is there any way I can feel better? I drink water, it comes back up again, food comes back up again, I've tried ginger tea and rest but nothing I do seems to help.

Any advice and ways to ease sickness would be appreciated.

Thanks guys x

If you're not keeping fluids down you really could do with seeing the GP to see if some antiemetic medication would help. Dehydration is not good.

Travel sickness bands from a pharmacy.
My friend had awful sickness and she wore these through her whole pregnancy they were brilliant. They work on a acupuncture/pressure point theory.

See your gp- I had HG and kept up getting dehydrated and admitted to Hosp for IV fluids and anti- emetics. Can start you off on on oral ones though.

I went to the gp. Got cyclizine and another pill. Just had to start taking them again at 27 weeks. Don't suffer x

Accupuncture helped me a bit, and fizzy water and crisps! It's so awful... I really feel for you. It's improved for me now I'm 21 weeks, but there were times when I thought it would never stop! I didn't want to take any medications, but on reflection, I probably should have; so definitely discuss it with your gp. Other than that, I think all you can do is ride it out and hopefully by the time you get to the second trimester it will have calmed down a bit. Good luck!

I rode it out with first pregnancy, but with a toddler to care for I was at the gp in tears pretty early on. Get meds, there are plenty that are safe for pregnancy.

I was incredibly ill for some time. My life was consumed by feeling and being sick all the time. I was incredibly dehydrated too. In the end I went through lists of foods and when I found something that didn't make me mentally heave, I bought it. I lived off mash and bread for some
And just general rubbish.

I've probably not helped but if you think about what foods you could stomach and just eat them constantly!

Speak to a gp. As soon as you can. I got to the point where I could n't keep water down and had to be hospitalised.
