In brief: Prevent, diet, meds

First try to prevent nausea by avoiding strong foods and aromas.
Eat a cracker each hour while awake with the first before you get out of bed. Ginger, vitamin b6 (25 mg four times a day) "sea bands" help. Motion sickness medications and stronger anti-nausea meds may be prescribed. If severe vomiting occurs it is called hyperemesis gravidarum and may require IV fluids, meds and hospitilization.

UNISON and Vitamin B6 are useful over the counter aids taken in the AM

In brief: Medication and time

Ginger supplements and b6 vitamins help some.
Eating frequent small meals helps others. Some need medication like promethazine, Reglan (metoclopramide) or zofran. Most get better by 12-16 weeks.

Doxylamine (unisom) can be helpful, with B6 for severe vomiting
