I am sure I have tried it all but lay it on me lol I do take zofran but it doesn't help, I would like to try ginger again but isn't the gingerale in 2 liters are just artificial flavoring of ginger, not really all natural, so I am open on the exact brand name of whatever you used :) I have tried peppermint tea which just made my belly feel warm? Almost like it was messin with the acids in my stomach so I didn't really like it and didn't really help my belly, I have tried sea bands but they don't work for me, and I am also open for foods that are easy to digest that my belly could hold down, oh and something to snack on too since I am starving all the time and my belly can only hold little bit at a time or it comes up :/ and thanks y'all have helped me so much on here [cheerful]

You know I had one lady tell me once that zofran never did anything for her and her new dr on 3rd pregnancy prescribed her something like Pepcid can't remember the exact name and she said it helped wonders and I wonder if that's what I should try, I have tried over the counter stuff you can take but didn't help but wonder if a prescription will, because my stomach bubbles all the time during 1st trimester and sometimes have a warm sensation in my stomach it's weird feeling , and sometimes I have foamy diarrhea ( sorry tmi) and I throw up a lot of air, sometimes when I have a lot of pressure and nausea if I belch I feel some relief, and zofran isn't designed to fix acid or lots of air bloatiness, so I think I am gonna run this by my ob and see if I can find some relief this pregnancy

I used ginger candy - this is the cutesy one I tried http://www.gingerpeople.com/gin-gin-candies.html but our local supermarket also sells a much cheaper one that looks like this http://www.mastgeneralstore.com/prodimages/4759-DEFAULT-l.jpg
I have also just bought ginger root, cut it up, boiled it and then drank the hot water like it was tea. What else? I usually try to take b12, take it easy on the iron in the beginning, take my prenatal at night before I go to sleep. Some people take their b12 vitamin with unisom, but I have never tried that combo personally and wouldn't take that on top of zofran.
A company called Grace makes 2 drinks that have lots of ginger in them - Tropical Rhythms Ginger Sorell and Pineapple Ginger, way more effective than ginger ale, IMO. Ginger ale does almost nothing for me bec even the ones with real ginger have such a tiny amt. Basically when I am preggo I am a ginger-holic.
If it is acid I hope the Pepcid is ok to take or maybe there is an alternative if it is not. Sometimes I drink milk when I have heartburn but it is hard to do that when you already feel sick.
Praying you feel better soon!

"Morning sickness" is a misnomer. (In fact, the technical medical term is "nausea and vomiting of pregnancy.") For some pregnant women, the symptoms are worst in the morning and ease up over the course of the day, but they can strike at any time and, for most women, last all day long. The intensity of symptoms can vary from woman to woman, too.
