A girlfriend of mine is pregnant (YEAH) but has morning sickness (BOOO.) Poor thing! It brought back some pretty bleak memories. With both pregnancies I was severely sick the first four months. I’m talking vomiting from morning till night. It was so bad I lost five pounds my first trimester. It was very worrying to me but not so much to my OBGYN. Thankfully I ended up with two very healthy babies. Mabel was 9 lbs 1 oz and Evelyn was 8 lbs 10 oz. Big babies.
I had lists upon lists and everyone talking in my ear about what I should be doing, trying, taking, and drinking. The only thing I could stomach in the mornings was a toasted bagel, buttered with a slice of cheese. And bless my husband’s heart, it was next to my bed every morning when I opened my eyes. Here’s the Top 5 list of things that they say should work for morning sickness. None of it did for me except for one! Read on to find out!

Luckily for me, by my fourth month in both pregnancies my morning sickness subsided. I went on to gain back all the weight I had lost and then some! Take solace in the fact that morning sickness is considered a positive sign of pregnancy.
What helped you through those early days of pregnancy?
