    I found eating 2 rich tea biscuits before getting out of bed at least eased it

    Dry toast or some weak mint tea helped me. What I used to do was keep a dry cracker and some water next to the bed and once I woke in the morning I would eat that before getting up. For some reason that really helped me.

    Ginger snaps also work! [​IMG]

    Try taking two or three teaspoons of apple cider vinegar (not any other kind) in warm water first thing in the morning. Apple cider vinegar is pH neutral and may help to neutralise excess stomach acid.

    Ginger tea can be used freely to help. Ginger has been thoroughly researched over the years. A recent review of scientific evidence, published in the British Journal of Anaesthesia, found that ginger was beneficial in treating all kinds of nausea. To make a tea, pour boiling water over a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger root. You can also add the juice of half a lemon and sweeten with honey if you like. In winter it’s a warmer, in the summer it can be a refreshing iced tea. This mix has the bonus of helping to ward off low blood sugar, headaches and fatigue as well as relieving nausea.

    If you are out of the house and can’t brew up, any food item containing ginger should help. Some women swear by stale ginger ale, others prefer the crystallised ginger available in some specialist cook shops. Others use it liberally in cooking in both sweet and savoury dishes.

    Acupressure can also be very effective. Several recent studies, including those published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine and the Journal of Nurse Midwifery, show that pressure on the pericardium 6 (or P6) point can provide fairly quick relief from nausea, though it may not help to reduce vomiting. To find this point place your hand palm up and measure two thumb widths above the most prominent wrist crease; P6 is just above this point, in line with your middle finger. Some chemists sell wristbands, which stimulate the P6 point. These have also been shown to work for some women.
    Check with your doctor before you have acupressure as some techniques can start labour!!

    Ginger biscuits helped me. Though I was lucky in that I just felt sick and wasn't actually sick too much after the first 3 months or so.

    I hated the smell of fried foods, I remember that very clearly!

    I tried Ginger nut bickies for a lil while but they only worked for a lil bit...well they do say every pregnancy is different...so I stumbled on to a natural remedy called - Slippery Elm Food..I got it in a health shop..I had been reading up on it and what it can do...turns out it can help almost anything, including morning sickness (which in my case was all day and night sickness lol)

    It can be made up like a smooth prooidge and a lil added sugar to taste and it goes down well and settles your tummy...hey its just a tip I am sharing..I think before you try it..read up on it 1st [​IMG]
