Morning : Morning sickness can happen any time of the day and occurs in more than half of all pregnancies. A few tips that can help are: - sniffing lemons of ginger, drinking lemonade, or eating watermelon can help with nausea - eat salty potato chips - this can actually settle the stomach! - take "sips" instead of "glugs". Drinking a large amount of fluid all at once can induce vomiting with an upset stomach - try eating soda crackers first thing in the morning - avoid foods and smells that cause nausea - get plenty of rest - exercise can also help with nausea if she continues to be unable to keep anything down or if you are concerned about dehydration, call her doctor. There is a condition called hyperemesis gravidum in which women have excessive nausea and vomiting and may require IV fluids. Good luck! ...Read more
