    How do you juggle eating so that you don't feel sick when any and all food smells horrible, makes your stomach turn, and makes you want to be sick? I was NEVER this sick with my little boy :( I feel horrible. I'm about to have to have lunch with my asst. prinicipal and I can't eat anything. I'm forcing down honey nut cheerios. Any advice?

    Never been preggers...

    But I hear anything sour helps (like sour lemon drops)
    I also hear chewing on natural ginger helps
    I also hear that your stomach should never be empty. Ever. Eat saltines or something constantly.

    Hope you feel better :)

    PS Google preggo pops

    Sorry you're feeling so rotten. It will pass soon! I remember eating saltines and drinking warm sprite. Seemed to help, and when it didn't it was pretty bland on the way back out :)whistle:).

    What worked for me was Saltine crackers. I carried them EVERYWHERE.

    Hang in there. For me, it ended at the 1st trimester mark.

    Beside everything else that has been mentioned, peppermint candies, peppermint tea and anything else with peppermint really worked for me. Something about the peppermint really calmed my queasy stomach.

    Ginger tea or ginger capsules really help! And as has been mentioned - never let your stomach get empty. Eat a cracker every 10 min. seriously. The doc told my friend that before she even takes off the covers in the morning, she has to eat a few saltines. They lie still for about 10 min. Snack on them in the night after you get up to use the bathroom.

    One thought - try rubbing a little Vick's just inside your nose. If you can tolerate that smell, it obliterates all other odors. Police officers use it when they have to recover bodies . . . . sorry, that probably made you sick right there. But it does cover up all other smells. Let me know how it works.

    I always had a small bowl of oatmeal before bed. I figured it was filling & "stuck" to you for longer than those empy calories.

    As far as the others I can't help much, I only had a couple bouts with being sick & so I just stayed away from those foods!!!
