I am 7 weeks pregnant with our 12th child. At almost 43 yrs old, I consider the nausea to be a good sign since I keep hearing of women my age miscarrying. But it's still hard to keep going when I feel so yucky.
I've experienced morning sickness with every pregnancy, but other than the time I had the flu at this stage, I've never thrown up so I know this isn't nearly as bad as other women get.
I've found a couple of aids so far. We went on a long drive to go meet our first grandson. Each time I'd start to feel nauseous I'd fall asleep. When I woke up, the nausea had passed. So sleep is apparently a good help. This was the ONLY day out of 12 pregnancies that this was a possibility though. Life doesn't let many people just doze off and on all day.
I know that peppermint is supposed to be good for upset stomachs. So I bought some Altoid mints. The curiously strong ones. I LOVE mints, but these aren't my favorite. They're so strong they hurt my tongue. In other pregnancies I tried mint candy and mint gum and they work okay and taste good. The Altoids are working great so far. Why does it have to be the one I don't care as much for? But relief is relief.
I will say, nothing seems to take the nausea away completely. This just helps it be more tolerable. Ginger is supposed to work well, too, but I haven't tried it yet. Maybe I'll make some ginger tea this weekend and see how that works. I'll keep you posted if I find anything.
