I am also pregnant with my first child and currently on my 2nd trimester. Ginger chews helped me a lot with morning sickness. There’s a brand called Chimes and I usually get the mango-ginger flavor. The consistency of the candy is somewhat like a laffy taffy but stronger in flavor. TJ Maxx or Marshall’s usually carries them but if not, you can try Amazon. Good luck!

Same! Never been a fan of ginger except like you I can tolerate the pickled sushi version. Surprisingly this candy doesn’t taste like fresh ginger and the addition of the mango flavor mellows it out a bit. There also other flavors like orange-ginger or peanut butter-ginger if you don’t like mango.

Take B6 every 6 hours while awake- made a huge difference for me.

Didn’t try to take with food but I was eating crackers all the time. Also agree with unison for at night

Fresh air, constant small snacks, motion sickness wristband (didn't help all the time but it did sometimes), anything with ginger. Good luck, it does get better!

Thank you!!! Did you like ginger before you got pregnant? Lots of suggestions for ginger but for some reason it smells so weird to me lately! (I only ever ate the pickled kind with sushi before!)

I had 2 pregnancies and different things worked for each pregnancy. You must find out by yourself what works for you. But as general, keep hydrated and consume small amount of meal regularly EVEN when you don't feel like eating. The gas from not eating for hours will only make matters worse, trust me. Do some light stretching or first trimester pregnancy workout to minimizes body ache.

Following. I also get tired of eating the same thing after about 2 days. So the preggie pops, a friend bought me and now I can’t stand the taste of them. They worked the few days I ate them. No morning sickness but nausea hits later in the day. Currently trying sea sick patches and acupuncture wrist bands they both came in the mail Sunday.

Anyone here have experience with a vanishing twin? Went to eight week ultrasound and there was one healthy baby but also an empty sac.
