Hehe zoebird :) That's a lovely thought, but I HATE massage!! I think I'm too type A for it. Perhaps the pregnancy hormones will change that. I dont like people touching my belly, i dont even like to rest my arm on it, lol. I try to wear loose pants not to put too much pressure on the little one ;-) I know he/she is in a nice tight little bubble and is safe from pressure, but i like a tender approach :)

i wrote about it in the other thread (about tilted uterus). i talked to m provider and teacher (i took the self care workshop), and she said that it helps with many aspects of pregnancy--helping "tone" the uterus for growth and birth, and can help with repositioning.<br><br><br><br>
also, the amount of pressure can vary.

Bumping this to see if anyone has any add'l ideas. I hit 10 weeks yesterday and have been sicker than a dog for the past two. Ginger ale, ginger tea, and peppermint tea come straight back. Water is iffy at best. I'm waking up by 4 every morning and generally in full-fledged dry heaves by 6. Usually get a little bit of relief later in the morning if I can get breakfast to stay down. By 10:30 or 11, though, it's back to dry heaves (10x worse than actual vomitting). Lunch stays about half the time. When it does, it gives a couple of hours of relief. I teach from 3-7:30, though, and by 6 p.m. every day I'm getting to the point of being so hungry that I *can't* eat. Oh, and snacking does not help. Anything sweet comes straight back. Crackers/pretzels/etc. can only be consumed in small quantities. Doctor speaks almost no English and just smiles and tells me everything is OK. I am so at my wit's end I don't know what to do. I feel like I just can't handle the constant nausea for however-many-more weeks without some sort of relief. (Both my mom and sister were sick well into their second trimester, so I'm not really at the point where I can even start counting down toward an end.)

I still recommend a relief band. That thing is amazing.

Old Wives remedy--I am an old wife don't cha know.<br><br><br><br>
Put your crackers beside your bed at night so that you may eat them before you ever get vertical. They absorb the tummy emptiness from the night and will at least calm the first wave. It seems if you start of well, your chances of continuing so increases greatly.<br><br><br><br>
Stay under cool air, do not get too hot ever or upsydaisy.<br><br><br><br>
Other than that, good luck.

Protein, protein, protein. Thats the only thing that helped me. Keep some walnuts, cottage cheese, yogurt, etc, in your drawer at class, and in between bells scarf one down - with morning sickness, you need to eat every a little at least every 2 hours, not just 3 meals a day. it will help. And worry not, it goes away eventually!!! :)

I just happened to see this even though I don't usually come to this section. That's the same thing my sister's midwife told her. Of course it's been almost 11 years now, so I don't remember if my sister said it helped, but I think she said it did. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> And she also said salty foods helped.<br><br><br><br>
I've never had morning sickness or a reason to have it, but when I'm feeling nauseous, the one thing that will stop it is peppermint candy. I know you said the peppermint tea didn't help, but the hard candy always helps me. It has to be Brachs though, not some off brand, and I don't know if you can get that where you are. (Korea, right?) But Brachs is more peppermint-y.<br><br><br><br>
Salty, non-greasy food also helps when I'm feeling queasy.<br><br><br><br>
A friend of mine when she was preggo swore by Pepsi. It's sweet but she said the carbonation helped. She didn't drink a lot at once but would keep a can nearby and sip it all day.

this just goes to show how different everybody's body is! When I was morning sick I could NOT keep protein-rich foods down! Every morning all I wanted was a toasted WHITE flour bagel (couldn't stomach whole grains!) and some apple juice on ice. Seriously, every morning for maybe 2 months. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br><br><br>
I do agree with the eating very frequently though. Eat at the FIRST sign of hunger! If you wait, hunger will quickly turn into nausea!

Hi and congrats!<br><br><br><br>
I thought that being vegan would mean I wouldnt get MS - but no such luck!<br><br>
Well I was not actually sick but felt sick most mornings and into the afternoon - I didnt do mornings for months!<br><br><br><br>
I found that eating little and often helped - bread and mash potatoes in small amounts were good. I even had to get hubby to mash vegetables in the potatoes as the thought of them made me feel sick!<br><br><br><br>
I hope it passes for you. My baby is now 1 - Time flys!<br><br><br><br>
Vegan wishes<br><br>

I had morning noon and night sickness for several months with my dd. I ended up getting a perscription from my OB for it since it was still going at 10 weeks he went ahead and gave it to me. I never threw up but I have a very odd phobia of vomitting so I refuse to do it when I can avoid it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"><br><br><br><br>
I've heard giner is good. Have you tried ginger ale when you are feeling sick. Also small but frequent meals are good. Try to have snacks around alot and not let your tummy get too full or too empty.
