The one thing that saved me during my first pregnancy was literally keeping saltines and water next to my bedside. I would sit up every morning, and before I got out of bed I would eat a few handfulls of saltines and drink some water. Then get up...slowly.
I can't imagine that juice or gatorade would help. Seems like all that high fructose corn syrup and sugar would make you even more nauseated!

Great advice, Angela!
Ginger tea is awesome!! They even make ginger chews, you can get at the healthfood store.

I, too, am confused about the gatorade/juice... But I've been drinking gatorade all day. I am hoping the HFS will have something comparable because I don't like consuming HFCS!!

I DO eat every couple of hours... I feel like I'm always hungry anyway. Ginger hasn't helped me in the past, but perhaps I will give it another shot. I'll try anything at this point. Oh, and I'm already peeing constantly (including the middle of the night EVERY night), and I burp and hiccup a lot, which I'm guessing is a preview of the heartburn that is to come! I'm trying not to complain, I'm so grateful to just BE pregnant - but I also need to function at work!! I don't want to have to tell my boss for several more weeks.

Thanks, ladies, and let me know if you have ANY more advice!

Nausea was much worse the 3rd time. Ginger became my best friend. I bought fresh ginger and chopped it up with my food. I upped my fiber for C and took Colace (helped a lot and I was glad it was natural). I couldn't eat Saltines but only because I OD'ed on them with the first two. Just like Angela, I was much worse off if I didn't eat SOMEthing every two hours or so. An empty stomach brought dry heaves!!

So happy for you. You'll get through it all just fine. Just hang in there!!!
