I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with my first child. This has been a struggle. I had severe morning sickness from six weeks until about 16 weeks. Some days I could not even keep down water and some days I would throw up so violently that it hurt and I couldn't breathe. However, there is hope out there. I have found some things that do help. Some days, nothing will help, but when you're desperate, you'll do what you must to make it through the day.

Nausea is defined as a sick feeling in your stomach. You feel as though you could vomit at any time, but most times you do not. Sometimes you wish you could just to get rid of that horrible feeling. I have found a few things that do help with the nausea. The first thing, which was recommended by my doctor, is Preggie Pops. You can order them online or purchase at your local maternity store. They come in lollipop and hard candy form. You wouldn't think that it would help, but it really does. There is something in them that soothes the nausea beast within.

The second thing is sour things. Anything from lemonade to sour candy. It seems as though the sourness helps to stop nausea by stopping the gag reflex. This is also good for vomiting. I've drunk a lot of lemonade since I've been pregnant to help. I like the tartness of it and that it helps the nausea. The third thing that does help some is to eat. That is the last thing to want to do, but it does help. If you will eat every couple of hours, it will fend off the stomach acids that make you nauseous. My doctor also recommended ginger, but I just couldn't stand the taste of it. Just tasting it made me want to throw up, but it may work for you. If you already like ginger, give it a try.

There is not a lot that will help with the vomiting. As I mentioned previously, lemonade does help some as does putting some salt on your tongue. If you are vomiting more than three times a day, I suggest seeking help from your doctor as they will be able to prescribe you something to help.

Sometimes during pregnancy you will get this blah feeling. It's like you're tired and exhausted and just plain blah. The only thing that will help this is to drink lots of water. When you are pregnant, you get dehydrated very quickly since there are two of you now. It really does help. I just knew it wouldn't, but I tried it anyway and I couldn't believe how quickly I began to feel better. You will have to go to the bathroom more frequently, but it's worth it not to feel so bad. If you drink water every day, it will help you not have this feeling. It is very common in the first trimester.

Good luck with your pregnancy and symptoms. I hope that I've been able to help and as again, always check with your doctor first.
