    That's right, I'm pregnant. As of tomorrow, I'll be six weeks along. Nausea started a few days ago and I just threw up for the first time. Does anyone have any morning sickness tips?

    2 things to try:

    Candied ginger, suck on it like a hard candy.

    Lemon drops, also suck on them.

    For some reason these helped get me thru morning sickness, I had it rough with both both boys.

    I've been drinking ginger tea and we made homemade ginger ale, but today the thought of it was really unappetizing.

    Altoids Mints helped me for the 2nd baby, but for the other 4 I had to be put on Metoclopramide.

    Oh! I am so happy for you!! I had horrible morning sickness, well it was really morning, mid morning, noon, afternoon......

    I kept water and soda crackers next to my bed. If I had a cracker or 2 and a few sips of water before I got up it seemed to help. Also my Grandmother told me when I felt sick to nibble on a Ginger Snap cookie, you know the hard strong flavor ones you buy at the store? I swear they work! Good luck and again congrats!!
