    Default Feeling sick

    I was hoping someone could help me. This is my second pregnancy and with my first I was VERY sick (both nausea and vommitting) for 20 weeks. It was a nightmare and at times I wished the pregnancy would just end it got that bad. I am now a mere 4weeks pregnant and it is starting again. Does anyone know of ANYTHING that might help beyond the old "dry crackers in a morning" routine (that last time did squat all). Has anyone had accupuncture? did it work? Please help!!

    just moving to Preganacy General Discussion.......

    I found that ginger beer was fantastic. I would think that acupuncture would be worth trying.

    Blackmore's morning sickness formula works for me, but mine is not severe. I have also heard that "Sea bands" are very helpful. You can get them from chemists.

    Hello there,

    Yes!! I did have acupuncture but I did it for 3 months prior to conception and did it every fortnight after I got pregnant. I feel that it did help me as well as those magnets on the wrist. Nothing helped me more than acupuncture. Food, drink, forget it (except for fresh air!!)

    In saying that, it is never to late to start.

    Ginger in any form is useful.
    Ginger crackere, beer, tea, or just plain ginger.

    Hi Kiki,

    I am having my fifth session of acupuncture for morning sickness tomorrow. I think it has helped. I probably feel about 50% better. I took the Blackmores m/s tablets but I was allergic to them. I am also wearing Sea Bands 24/7 and taking Vitamin B6 tablets from the pharmacy. I don't really know what is helping. I find if I eat constantly I feel somewhat better even though the last thing I want is food. The Dr said I could take Maxalon but I am reluctant to take drugs unless they are essential.

    If you live in Melbourne I could give the name of the acupuncturist I am seeing. She was recommended to me by a midwife and she specialises in fertility, pregnancy and peadiatrics and sees heaps of people with morning sickness.

    Good luck

    Let's hope it goes away for you after 12 weeks like the books say

    I agree that ginger works.

    Wrist bands did f-all for me, as did ginger tabs. Ginger only seems to work in fresh form for some people, not dried or tabs, and unfortuanbtely I hate the stuff!

    Accupuncture did work for me, but don't expect immediate results, I had 3 sessions before feeling better. Good luck!
