Hi mums. I’m 2.5 months pregnant and I’m experiencing the worst morning sickness…that’s lasting all day! My doctor said everything is going well and is very normal but I wanted to know how other mums overcame their morning sickness. A couple of people suggested I eat muffins, but I haven’t had any success. Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

  • Travel sickness bands on your wrists or eating dry biscuits

  • I found I was better having had lucizade . Perhaps the electrilites

  • Dry crackers got me though

  • Dry water crackers, plain bread / toast (no spread), ginger tea, peppermint tea might be useful. It differs from one pregnancy to the next though, with my younger one I couldn’t stand any tea.

  • In all 3 of my pregnancies i had 40 weeks straight of morning sickness. I don’tthink there Iis anyone cure. With each pregnancy it was something different. My first was pickles and coffee buns but only worked sometimes. With the 2nd it was lemon wedges, sipping icy lemon water and salty crackers. With the third it was Vegemite toast and dry crackers. Other things to try to is to have some dry crackers before you even get out of bed and don’t touch cold floors with bare feet. It’s all a trial and error process. I hope this helps and your morning sickness doesn’t last long

  • Things that helped me: Dry salty crakers, vegemite on toast, cheese Twisties and bananas. My morning sickness went away overnight bang on week 13.

  • Sniffing lemon extract and rosemary, nibble on stomach-friendly foods such as liquids, smoothies, yogurts, and low-fat, high-carb foods and delegate “Mum” tasks to other!

  • you can use ginger, it is used for nausea, morning sickness and travel sickness

  • i found if i sleeped until lunch i would not get it however that was when i only had one child and i had the option to on weekends lol good luck morning sickness is not fun :( x

  • It’s probably been write here already but dry biscuits, ginger in any form. I’ll be honest I was pretty sick my whole pregnancy and no one thing worked. I had to keep changing and trying different things. I defo think not having an empty stomach helps heaps also !!

  • I had hideous morning sickness, that lasted until 4 months, which probably won’t make you feel any better. But everyone is different, and you could well find that your nausea disappears as quickly as it started. I certainly hope so, for your sake. I found that eating dry Cruskits or Salada crackers for “breakfast” was about all my stomach could cope with. Drinking lemonade and ginger beer also helped me. Good luck!

  • Try and eat a light food ,banana or dry biscuits as soon as ur up &moving

  • sipping peppermint tea or eating dry crackers is what helped mine…good luck hope its over the morning sickness soon.

  • Sadly not a lot. With my first it was bad but i found if i ate little amounts frequently i was ok. With my 2nd i had Hyperemesis gravidarum and was in and out of hospital as i couldn’t even keep water down but i had a healthy baby girl 7lbs 6oz 4 mths ago. Congratulations and hopefully it doesn’t last too much longer (on average it usually calms around 13 weeks) i also get it at the end too.

  • Snack pack apricots or peaches in syrup or natural juice.
