    Not to put you off, but i had morning sickness for about 7 months (I am having twins though) and the early stages were terrible. I was loaded with advice and i think the answers are different for everyone. Find the foods your body craves and don't worry too much about whether they're good for you - my Dr told me that the baby will get the right nutrients from you anyhow. I loved Macdonalds hamburgers, seemed to be the only thing that gave me more than 10 mins relief. i also had acupuncture 2/3 times a week and although it wasn't a cure it certainly took the edge off. Ginger is usually good, doesnt matter how you take it - ginger ale, ginger beer, ginger biscuits, ginger tea with lemon - whichever one works for you.

    Also take your prenatal vitamin at night and not first thing in the morning and keep crackers by the side of your bed, have them before you get out of bed in the morning

    oh and i loved salt and vinegar crisps too!!

    You have my sympathy - I had M/S until about 5 months - then just when I thought it would be there forever - I felt better. Brushing my teeth was aweful no matter what toothpaste - just having the toothbrush near my back teeth made me throw up everytime.
    I found ginger really helpful; in Australia I found some ginger lollies which were fabulous, and drinking Ginger Beer and Ginger Ale helped too. The other down under trick I used was Vegemite on crackers.

    Goodluck finding a trick that works for me. And just think about the little bundle you will have at the end.
