Nausea. It's like the bane of my life at the mo. I have no idea why they call it morning sickness as it seems to hit me day and night. I can't wait until this eases up and I can feel like myself again. In the meantime there's a few things I have found that help:
Lying down and keeping really still - yep, if it gets really bad I have to lay in my bed!
Getting lots of sleep - I've noticed that my nausea improves tenfold if I sleep loads.
Eating cold meals or getting someone else to cook - I can't stand the smell of cooking right now (more so in the eve).
Have my main meal in the afternoon - the poor baby still needs to be fed and my nausea isn't usually as bad at lunch time.
Consume lots of carbs - think wholemeal bread, potatoes, pasta and rice.
Fizzy drinks - soda water, coca-cola, Appletiser and Rio. They all do it for me.
Ice lollies - I can't get enough of them at the mo. I don't know why but they really do work.
Sea Bands (I have these here) - admittedly I've not used them for a few weeks but they seem to work when I do.
Boiled sweets - humbugs are my thing at the mo. They're lovely and minty fresh.
Ginger - biscuits, tea, cold drinks etc. I'm sick of ginger right now but it worked for me in the beginning. I have found Nairn's Ginger Oat Biscuits to be particularly good.
One of the main things I find gross is the metallic taste I have in my mouth. That's where the ice lollies, humbugs and often fizzy drinks come in! As well as helping with the nausea they help to combat the yucky taste.
