“I am 25 weeks pregnant. At 18 weeks, my morning sickness started to settle, but at 23 weeks it has returned with a vengeance. I’ve tried all the “tricks” such as ginger tablets, bland food, eating little and often… the sickness just won’t go away. It’s made worse by constant migraines and headaches. I did suffer from them prior to pregnancy but they’re getting worse. Does anyone have any advice for mid-pregnancy morning sickness and migraines? I’m so miserable and just want this whole experience to be over ”

  • Al those foods were not so appealing to me. I preferred herbal tea’s especially in the morning. Herbal teas like red raspberry, lemon, spearmint, peppermint, peach, or chamomile

  • rest, sitting down helps

  • Dry toast and tea before you get out of bed. Stay hydrated. Eat whatever you feel like whenever a craving might hit

  • OMG just reading everyone’s answers makes me feel like spewing… I know the feeling, nothing is seeming to work for me either. So over feeling like this. I know I’m hungry but I just can’t eat anything without feeling like I’m going to bring it back up & once I start my 3 year old starts & I just can’t handle cleaning up 2 lots of spew when I feel so weak.

  • Go to your GP and ask for a prescription of Ondansetron. This can be taken during pregnancy with your doctors or midwifes advice. They come in 4 or 8mg wafers and are expensive – but worth it.

  • Try eating ginger nut biscuites they helped me get through,

  • Geentea with mint is my helpful tip

  • poor thing try sleeping thats the only thing that would help me

  • No idea about dealing with morning sickness.

  • I was lucky not to get it – hope you managed to find something that worked.

  • Instead of ginger tablets, try munching on some ginger biscuits.

  • I hope you found some advice

  • I dont have any help for you with regards to the headaches, however with the general sickness I found eating a piece of toast before getting up, followed by blackmores morning sickness tablets (basically ginger tablets) helped greatly in the morning. The only thing I could keep down for a few months was plain rice, sometimes with peas or corn & a little soy sauce. Small frequent snacks helped a lot, as did eating marmite rusks (toast with marmite / vegemite cooked in the over until crispy & then eaten when cold.

  • I ate small cut up pieces of fruit. It helped a little bit.

  • Zooper Doopers – I had cancer whilst I was pregnant and I can tell you when you combine morning sickness and chemo sickness together it makes for one hell of a lot of throwing up! I lived on zooper doopers – the ice cooled me down and the sugar eased my stomach. When I couldn’t tolerate the zooper doopers I used to just such on ice. Just remember it doesn’t last forever and you get a beautiful bundle of joy at the end of it!
