- Protein- A protein rich dinner has helped me to not me as sick when I first wake up. I try to eat meat and beans with dinner (both of which sound great to me these days).
- Coke- Only a few seem to settle my stomach, and a few seem to set it off. You may have to try a few before you find one that works for you.
- Candy- Peppermint works for me this time, but not in the past. There are several maternity stores as well as websites that offer anti-nausea candy that really does work. Preggie Pop Drops are amazing (my husband even tried them one day when he was not feeling good, and he loves them).
- Small meals- They really do work! I find if I eat several small meals it helps keep me from getting sick, and as a bonus helps my energy stay up as well.

Week 8~ Morning Sickness
I may not be the best person to write on this subject since I am not a "puker", I just battled severe, all day long nausea, with my first two. This time around is a little different. Every morning I wake up to extreme nausea and it takes me about 30-45 minutes to eat my breakfast. I have learned if I can hold out until (and by that I mean keep from vomiting) until 10:00 am, a switch turns off and I am good for the rest of the day, unless I smell something that "stinks". I have heard (because you know everyone has advice when you are pregnant) and read that protein, ginger ale, coke, peppermint, ginger candy, crackers, and so on can help. I will tell you a few things that have helped me.
