I'm currently 6+4 and its hit me like a tonne of bricks over the last week.
Travel sick bands dont seem to be helping, nor does Ginger biscuits. Did anyone else try something thats lifted it a little?

I kept taking small sips of water, practically non stop - I figured that if I kept my digestive system working in one direction it would be less likely to go into reverse! This had varying degrees of success but did stop me running out of the classroom to puke. Mainly I would suggest eating little and often, don't let your stomach get empty, keep something by your bed to eat before you even get up. And don't worry too much about what you're eating - anything you fancy and can keep down will be fine at this stage.

Only giving birth actually helped clear it here properly.
I felt the same around that gestation and small nibbles of very plain food and sips of water or lemonade and lime water got me through. I pretty much lived off plain crisps, and digestive biscuits for the first three weeks.! Then malted milk biscuits!

I don't know if it was just me but nothing ginger worked at all! Peppermint tea was better.
I also had a couple of plain crackers before getting out of bed in the morning.
Hope it eases soon x

I had it all day and all night and constantly stuffing my face helped me to make it in to work. Thing is, I'm massive now!! I ate crisps, crackers, sausage rolls, ginger biscuits, malted milk biscuits, baguette, pasties. Anything like that. For breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between. I didn't start eating normally until 12-13 weeks. With my son it didn't lift until I gave birth to him, so I am grateful every day that the nausea is now low level and I feel more normal than not!

I used to feel nauseated all day but only actually threw up in the mornings. So I would have jelly for breakfast as it's nice and soft on the way back up! It was very hot when I was at that stage so I ate a lot of ice lollies which helped but I'm not sure I'd want them on cold days. Salty crisps helped too.

I had a tub of rich tea biscuits in my handbag (I preferred the cheap value ones are they were sweeter and less flavour!) and water constantly! Then ready salted crisps and cornflakes. Ice lollies are good too. Again I liked the cheap ones as they only just tasted of something other than ice!

Ginger biscuits worked with O, Lucozade worked with L

I heard not to eat and drink at the same time helps, so drinking either before or after food, but not at the same time. Didn't really help me though!

Thanks girls. I haven't yet found my magic combo but trying various things. Jam sandwichs seem to go down nicely at the moment. OH keeps telling me to have soup but the idea of something so liquidy turns my tummy. Fingers crossed I find my cure in the next couple of days. OH brought me Ritz crackers as they helped his sister but havent tried them yet - Cheese doesnt seem too appealing. Sticking with salted hula hoops for now, though i really fancy an ice lolly now you've all mentioned it.

Irn Bru was great for me! Along with peppermint tea and rich tea biscuits.
I also found that waking early in the morning and having breakfast in bed then going back to sleep again for an hour helped.

Ice lollies, although I can't remember which I used. & haribo sweets!
