What can I do to help my Nausea?

I am 6 weeks and I feel horribly sick. Yesterday I felt so tired and weak that I didn't want move off of the couch. So I tried to eat something to feel better and just threw everything up.

Ask your doctor for nausea meds. They are easy to swallow little pills. They will be your best friend!!

Vitamin b6.. or if you want to go the nausea med route.. ask your OB about diclegis. It is safe for baby and doesn't have the possible aide effects like the harsher nausea meds (zofran, Phenergan). It does make you sleepy though.

Gingerale was my best friend in my first trimester.

I advice u don't take pill unless pregnancy care. Wit time every tin will disappear u just need to bear it. It's normal. Unless a situation where u can't eat at all

If you feel you need medicine for your nausea then by all means ask your doctor for it ! I had morning sickness (all day sickness) until I was 4 1/2 months. You shouldn't have to suffer like that! I ended up only taking two or three nausea pills over that period and that was basically when I couldn't take anymore but also everyone is different I wouldn't tell you not to take anything though its your body and your choice. If your in a state where you can't eat anything you need some type of medicine or try eating crackers and drinking ginger ale ,they make ******* pops also and there are some other things you can try .even though your baby doesn't need much at this stage you still have to eat if you can! Your baby will always take what it needs and that leaves you losing out on nutrition.

Hi. I'm having morning (all day) sickness, too. It's worse during sunset... Here are the things I've done/been doing:
(1) knowing what triggers my sickness - all meat, all fried food (except for fried fish), herbs, smoke, coldness from the aircon (so I'm trying to have fresh air while at bedrest);
(2) crackers at some interval;
(3) no heavy meal (food is distributed throughout the day; mostly, just cereals since I can't eat meat and most fruits are smelly);
(4) bland-tasting food;
(5) foot socks (for some reason, my nausea is triggered when my feet are cold);
(6) resting (well, I'm on bedrest with bathroom priviledges);
(7) no flashing lights;
(8) sometimes my migrane triggers are also my nausea triggers; thus, my bedroom's windows are dimmed with heavy curtains;
(9) air. Lots of it.

I would speak with your doc about meds.  I have 9 children.  I get so sick for almost the first half of my pregnancies.  I can't so much as hold water down without the meds and even with the meds, they only help me so much.  I have been hospitalized a couple of times for dehydration.  Sometimes we need a bit of help!  Good luck!!  That sickness is no joke and no fun.
