Hello LydiaB. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Sorry to hear you're feeling so sick. I do remember how horrible morning sickness can be.
I found eating small bits of dry toast or ginger biscuits helped a bit. Have you tried either?
When are you due? If it's in June, we have a lovely Due in June Birth Club over here: do come and say hello to everyone - they're a lovely lot and we're sure they'll be very happy to see you.

Thank you! I've had toast and mashed potatoes today! I find that eating in general makes me feel worse.. I will try bits of toast throughout the day ! Thank you.
And I will join that !! :D

Congratulations On your pregnancy, and commiserations on the morning sickness! I've just had my 4th child and with all my pregnancies I've suffered from really bad morning sickness. Hopefully you fare better than me as I was sick morning, noon, and night for nine months!!!
Everyone is different, so I'm afraid it's a bit of trial and error in finding what helps. In the early stages of pregnancy you'll probably find that you are more hungry and therefore the long period during the night results in a build up of stomach acid and that's why you'll feel more sick first thing in the morning. Try having some biscuits (plain or ginger) by the bed for you to nibble on before you get up. Fruit or vegetable juice is also good first thing as its gentle on the stomach and easy to digest. I love juicing and I found that I was able to keep juices down longer than solid food. I've added a link below to Jason Vale's website as he has a recipe for a juice to help with morning sickness.
sea sickness bands are an option but didn't work for me (other than leave me with bruises on my wrist). Again it's trial and error.
I also found sparkling water helped whereas still water didn't? Not sure why..
holland and barrat also do fabulous chewy sweets call gin gins....if you like ginger then these are great.
if I can think of anything else I will let you know.
Good luck xx

im 17 weeks and still suffering with morning sickness but it is slowly but surely getting better week by week, i eat small and often throughout the day cereal bars and crisps are what gets me through, you will find what suits your body. Just go with what your body wants.

Congrats on your pregnancy!
Sorry to hear you feel sick, I was too (till I gave birth😐). Make sure you don't suffer from hyperemesis gravidarum, as you might need medical help. I couldn't even keep water down so had a few admissions to hospital. The worst thing is dehydration. Have a urine test - ketones are the sign of it. I had urine test strips at home and kept in touch with my GP over the phone as I could't get up to go to the doctors.
As for the food - it is trial and error. I was only able to eat slices of lemon and beans. Keep it plain and do not try strong flavours.
I hope it gets better for you. Good luck! Xxx
