Medicine prescribed by a doctor

Peppermint essential oil. Sniff it before the diaper change or put a dab under your nose. I’m not huge into essential oils but I used peppermint for headaches and nausea with my last pregnancy and it was very effective for me!

I got ginger hard candies to suck on. That helped a ton with my morning sickness and the nausea from poop smell. Ginger tea settled my stomach too, but everyone is different, and I had to try multiple things until I found one that worked for me. Best of luck, OP!!

like

Sea bands and ginger tea helped me a lot.

B6, Zofran if it gets to be unmanageable, take your prenatal at night with lots of water and a snack, ginger, very bland foods.

Vitamin B6 and Unisom tablet at night. This saved me during both my pregnancies. Otherwise, talk to your doctor, they can definitely give you something to help.

Any fish here dealt with a lonely/toxic parent?

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
