Try Ginger: Ginger can reduce nausea & upset stomach. You can drink slightly flattened ginger ale or nibble on crystallized ginger. Or pour boiling water over freshly sliced organic ginger & steep x 5 min in a covered pot. Sip. If you are vomiting too much - you could have hyperemesis gravidum. Let your physician know as you don't want to become dehydrated or throw off electrolyte balance. Take care.
