    Hi guys, do any of you suffer morning sickness and have to work? I work 40 hours a week in a shop environment (sale assistant) and worry that if when i get p/g I will be sick at work. What remedies work well? what can I do, i know I will get it as my sisters got it, but I need to be prepared.. I dont want to throw up at work lol! heelp

    Hiya,

    I found that eating little and often helped me stop feeling sick so much, and making sure you drink plenty too. My doc told me to have an Actimel drink every day coz that helps settle the tum and is good for you and the baby, that's something you could start taking now.

    I also find that if I stand for too long it makes me feel bad and hurts my back so try and sit regularly and have rests if poss. prob quite difficult in a shop. I'm lucky as I work part time so it's not too much of a problem. I had the doc sign me off for 2 weeks coz I had an infection, headaches/migraines & sickness. When your time comes don't worry about ringing in sick if you're that bad, companies have to respect that you can feel crappy!

    So all you need now is your BFP - hurry up girl, what u doing? come & join us in the 'I feel poo' gang! :lol:

    Nicki.x :D

    The good old sea sick bands worked for me as well as a very sweet tea as soon as i got to work. I found my sickness was worse when i was hungry or my blood sugar was low, the sweet tea and a biscuit sorted that right out! I'm now addicted to tea and hated before i was pregnant!

    Sending you baby dust and i hope you can be in the first trimester forum soon! :D
