    I am approx. 9-10 weeks pregnant and feeling very sick on a continuous basis. I have spoken to both the doctors and mid-wifes who state this is completely normal and to eat on a regular basis - but everything I eat I bring back up. I am starting to get seriously bored with it and it is really bringing me down - throat, head and body aches. Friends have suggested numerous things but I seek further advice from you guys as I do not believe this to be normal. Help!

    I found dry crackers helped; also ginger herbal tea (chilled if you prefer). I also used those sea sickness bands during pregnancy 4 and they worked a treat!

    Leave the top off a bottle of ginger ale, to let it go flat..its wonderful for morning sickness..just sip it as you need it...also, mashed potato sandwiches are a good filler, and absorb the acid, while giving you some vitamin C, milk/milkshakes also good if you can stand dairy. Really good to soothe that acid burn, too! Bananas are good..even if its just half at a time. Dry water crackers, too...but these can be hard to swallow! I am going with warm weetabix every morning, and it seems to help me..lol.
    Love and light
