I was incredibly lucky with my last pregnancy that I only had a few days of real nausea but I remember asking on here & buying quite a few things just in case. My hubby woke me when he came to bed late last night & I felt a bit nauseous & dizzy. Last time I think I bought ginger biscuits & either ginger ale or ginger beer (I know I bought the wrong 1 initially). Any other suggestions or tips? I've also got the travel sickness wrist bands ready for long car journeys!

I used the travel sickness bands last time but fortunately I only ever felt a bit sick rather than actually being sick. This time, as yet, I've not really felt too bad. A bit of nausea last week but I found eating little and often helped. Fingers crossed that's the worst I get!

I was incredibly lucky on the sickness/nausea front but it was a very fine line between sickness and hunger so I found if I kept eating little and often I was ok. Satsumas/clementines are great for refreshing you and giving you something to nibble on. Hope it passes soon.

Little & often is what I've found over the last few days. I'm also hoping not to get morning sickness this time but I had such an easy pregnancy & birth last time that I doubt I can be that lucky twice & would like to be prepared!

Eating little and often has really helped me. Ginger biscuits, flat ginger beer and crystallised ginger have all been good too :) Hopefully you have another easy pregnancy - fingers crossed!

Another fan of little and often! Ginger biscuits, sucking sugar free polos, sickness bands, sipping ice cold water, ice poles where practical!, dry crackers x

Much the same as Maisie Moo - ginger biscuits, polos, sickness bands, iced water, ice cream. Toast has became a diet staple.
Definately eating little & often - I seem to get a window of 10 minutes where i start to feel hungry and if I dont eat asap I vomit.
Also finding strawberries, oranges & kiwis refreshing, especially for my work train journey.
I eat my bigger meal at lunch and have a lighter meal in evenings - Im going to bed so early, if I brush my teeth within an hour or so of eating I am sick so I try to avoid that!

I'm really struggling, haven't found anything to help really, other than making sure I don't eat too much in one go (sometimes it feels I'd be better off not eating at all!). One day something will help a bit, the next day it makes me feel worse. I used the travel sickness bands last time, and found sucking lemon sherbets helped, but this time they're doing nothing. I'm even struggling drinking just water. Sorry, bit woe is me there, hope you find something to help.

I've not been sick but have been trying to eat little and often. The other day I was feeling quite sick and didn't really want food but made myself and actually felt a lot better after having it. I'll also be trying the travel sickness bands.

Travel sickness bands, full fat coke, crisps....
I went through a stage of living off crackers with jam / rich tea biscuits too.

Thanks ladies, will be buying a few of these but hoping I don't need them. Felt a bit queezy 1st thing but nothing since as I've been munching on carrots quite a bit! Think I'll keep some biscuits by my bed to have 1st thing - thanks for the tip AR.
Deedee, hope you're feeling better soon.
Sasasi: with my last pregnancy I had to switch to baby toothpaste as I went through a stage of gagging on regular toothpaste, hope it's just a phase for you.

I have vomited through the majority of the pregnancy. I have found the best thing is to only eat what you fancy when you really fancy it. Everytime I've tried to force something down thinking I really need to eat, it's come straight back up.
In my 1st trimester I found quartering oranges and sucking them helpful, I couldn't face things like toast or cereals and I couldn't face anything sweet whereas normally I have a really sweet tooth. By my second trimester oranges made me ill everytime I tried them, but toast worked a treat, and in my third trimester my staple was cereals, and I've got my sweet tooth back and after 6 months of avoiding chocolate I now like it again.

What are these sickness bands you speak of? Are they like the bracelets? Can anyone recommend me some? I sick of feeling sick! I'm only physically sick in the evenings but if I could feel less sick during the day that would be great. Willing to try anything! Link me up please!

Fabulous. Thank you I'm off to purchase a pair!

They are stretchy fabric bands with a knobbly bit on the inside that goes against your wrist. They work on acupressure points. I had Boots own brand ones, cost about £7 and worked a treat!! X
