Horrible morning sickness

Just found out im pregnant.. About 7 weeks. The morning sickness is unbearable. All day, every day. I have actually lost 4 lbs. this week. I was prescribed zoloft, bought sea bands and have tried spaced out meals, ice chips..i feel like I've tried EVERYTHING! This is my first pregnancy and i would appreciate anything that could help.

Try dried ginger cubes or chewing spearmint gum. It helped me out. Good luck with everything!

Try saltine crackers & Ginger ale. Get Canada dry Ginger ale, it's made with real Ginger. You can keep some by your bed & eat a little before you get up.

Try Zofran, that stuff is amazing. It helped me through my first trimester.

Try sucking on lemon halves it's really helped me out this time around also try not to drink while you eat and when you do drink only take small sips at a time also as one lady already stated chewing on minty gum helps aswell...wishing you luck  :)

They have there awesome ginger candies at sprouts. I suck on those and they are life savers. I stopped taken the Zofran because for some reason it doesn't help me. But anything with ginger in it helps me.
