Sickness help

Just wondering Does anyone have any tips for nausea? I'm almost 8 weeks and I've only actually been sick twice but I've felt nauseas all day Every day for the past week and a half and it's making me miserable. I've got really bad in defeat ion lately too, my food is just sitting in my throat like it's waiting to come back up but never does and the torment is unreal, willing to try ANYTHING at this point Sad

Should probably add that I've completely lost my appetite at the moment and anything I do eat I am having to force myself otherwise I won't eat at all

Thank you in advance 💓

Plain rich tea biscuits and flat coke is a good one.
Also sucking on ginger. Not raw ginger, but the crystallised stuff you can get from health shops (Holland & Barratt for example).
Toast and porridge with nothing on top is a good one.
I was never sick but felt a little off most days for the first 7 weeks of pregnancy.
Plenty of water too if you can manage it 🥰🥰🥰

Ice lollies were my 1st trimester saviour, it was the only thing that got rid of it for a while.

Antiemetics- I'm not sure if a doctor will prescribe them if you're not vomiting but they changed my life. I think you could make a good case if you're not eating though. I'm 20 weeks now and if I forget to take them I am sick as soon as I wake up (I am supposed to take 2 the night before) but they work perfectly. I only feel nausea if they have worn off which they only do if I go to bed super late.

But if you want the non-med remedy then I also recommend ice lollies/ice poles. My doctor told me about how the cold temp like soothes some gland in your throat which helps reduce nausea and they did deffo help! Apparently they give ice poles out in chemo wards.

Thank you all so much, will deffo try out all that's been suggested, hopefully the ice lollies will help with the horrendous heartburn that comes with it 😒

I had awful nausea and sickness in the first trimester and ended up getting anti sickness tablets from the GP.

I also tried ginger sweets (gin gins) and a travel sickness bracelet from Amazon which I saw recommended on here.

The only thing food wise I could manage for a while was salt and vinegar crisps
