I know how you feel. I had morning/afternoon/night sickness and my two year old son was nearly sold on e-bay!
How far on are you? I am 14 weeks now and feel great now compaired to 2 weeks ago. I hope you don't get it any longer than 3/4 months because I don't know how these woman with 9 months sickness cope.
Here are some tips, hopefully at least one will help. Get a very good quality pregnancy multivitamin from a good health shop (not chemist)- as in no change from a £20 note. Morning sickness is apparently exasperated and in some cases caused by a lack of some form of vitamin or mineral (my friend is a nutritionist). Some of these bog standard ones from chemists do more harm than good in the way of constipation, sickness etc.
You'll already have been given the 'eat small amounts often advice' but it's easier said than done, i know.
Can you get any help with your daughter from family or friends? Or do you have a partner that might be able to change their hours a bit to get home earlier etc? Failing all of the above, can you find things for DD to do as in extra toys in the garden if you have one, new DVD's, new toys she might spend time playing with. I got through it by giving my DS an unhealthy obsession with thomas the tank! I found I moaned at him more and he misbehaved because I was so moody and lying about. That's all behind us now so you will get through it. Good luck x

I found that travel sickness acupressure bands worked for me. Hope you feel better soon.

try dextrose tablets.. get them in boots in diabetic section. my dad is diabetic and suggested them 4 me based on theory that sickness is caused by low blood sugar. i used them during end of my sickness and found they really helped :-)

seabands and eating constantly

Eat chocolate and total crap constantly - only thing that worked on my sickness. Let DC watch videos constantly (and also partake of the chocolate). We both survived, just about though I must confess I got gestational diabetes and nearly died of guilt.

Ice lollies are my savior. Worked last pregnancy and this one too.

I've found the fruit juice lollies are the best and if you get the Del Monte ones, they count as 1 of your 5 a day grin

I used to grate fresh ginger and put it in a bottle/glass of water and sip pretty much constantly, like every minute or so.
Didn't take it away completely but it enabled me to feel less sick and gave me a couple of minutes respite from feeling sick.

It is awful this stage, especially when you already have other DC to look after.
