Morning Sickness all day long.
Having gone through morning sickness twice now, I found the things that worked for me were to eat something light right before I went to bed, often a plain salada biscuit or a sao... then in the morning I would eat another plain dry biscuit before I got out of bed... I kept a container beside the bed with dry crackers in it. I also always had a glass of water at the ready. It helped just to have a little something in my stomach, so that even if I was going to be sick... it wasn't a dry reach!!! They hurt the most. I can't stomach ginger, but a lot of pregnant women swear by it, plus if you are really feeling off you can try those travel sickness bands that you wear on the pressure points of your wrists. I also read somewhere that eating a peeled green apple can settle your stomach. All you can do is try a few things and see what works best for you. Goodluck and I hope you are feeling much better soon.
My sister swears by Blackmores, Ginger and B6, morning sickness formular. She suffered MS terribly with her first 2, even ending up in hospital, and these tablets have helped her heaps this pregnancy. They recommend 3 a day, she has one and only a second if she is feeling a bit yuck!
Good luck and i hope it eases for you soon,

I had morning sickness that should have been called night sickness as I felt great in the morning, by midday I started feeling off and was really bad by night. I would run home everyday after work and head straight for the toilet. This happened for about 6 months. The ginger did not work for me as the smell made me worse.
I ended up at the Doctors having Maxolin shots and was on Maxolin tablets.
I decided to do away with the drugs and opted for some acupuncture and herbs. They helped a great deal.
Hope you get some relief soon.

Hate to be a stick in the mud but the O.B I work with told me the only way to get rid of morning sickness is to have the baby. Just keep in mind it does'nt last for long,a strange one I found that helped me was vegemite drink (melt some vegemite in hot water) or tomato's.
Hope your feeling fighting fit very soon.
I feel for you. I had morning sickness when I was pregnant with Nicholas and it lasted all day every day. I was going to take ginger, but I couldn't stand thew smell. Although a friend of ours who is a Naturopath told us that not everyone should be taking ginger of any kind, when pregnant, especially if you are above average in weight/larger person as it can do more harm than good. Basically it can cause you body temperature to rise and in the worst case scenario it can cause a miscarriage.
Hopefully your morning sickness won't last long.
Take care and good luck with the rest of the pregnancy.
