Talk to doctor: There are many treatments that can help. Sometimes a woman has to be hospitalized if she is losing a lot of weight.

Nausea is worse when your stomach is completely empty. Ginger has some natural effects on nausea so try sipping ginger ale. Take your prenatal vitamins at night before sleeping.

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

Keep her hydrated.: Hopefully you are well. I hope that she does not have any infection or food poisoning. Then you want to make sure that she remains well hydrated. Since I don't know her prepregnancy wt I can't tell you how much her maintenance fluids should be. Her OB should know that and be able to assist you in managing her care. ...Read more
