Diet: You have probably tried these, but the usual recommendations are: 7-up, small very frequent amounts of saltine crackers, bread, rice, bananas, applesauce, toast, milk, and avoid caffeine, decongestants, aspirin/ibuprofen/other antiinflammatories, smoking, alcohol.

May need Medication: If you have tried dr bryant's suggestions and are loosing weight or just down right felling horrible, you may need a prescription medication from your doctor. The american college of obgyn suggest trying 50 mg of b6 with or without 1/2 tablet of unisom every 5 hours. This is as close to the old medication bendectin as can be and is the # 1 rx in the world for morning sickness!

Nausea of pregnancy: Morning sickness is the reaction your body has to Hcg (pregnancy hormone). Some ppl get the same reaction to TSH if they're hyperthyroid. You can start getting nauseous at 4 wks, w/ peak symptoms at 6wks, usually stopping by mid-2nd trimester. Natural remedies are ginger (tea/candy), vit B6. Rx: Metoclopramide/Reglan, hydroxyzine, benadryl, phenergan, (promethazine) and zofran are all good methods to try.
