Hello there! This is a subject that I have been trying to figure out myself. I started getting nausea at 3 weeks pregnant and am currently 17 weeks and still having nausea. It has tapered off, but is still a daily occurence, many times throughout the day. I have found that Unisom works wonders, however, you have to make sure that you get the kind without Benadryl or Diphenhidramine (aka Benadryl). I take a 1/2 pill every night before I go to bed and I sleep like a charm and it makes me feel better the next morning. I have a hard time taking it during the day though, and I am a nurse and work nights, which makes it difficult on the nights that I have to work. I am not able to take anything. I am thinking that I am going to see if I can get a Zofran prescription the next time that I go to the doctor. They said I should be out of the woods with nausea at 16 weeks at the latest, but that just isn't the case.

Anyways, another thing is to eat small snacks every couple hours. This is really hard for me though because I am never hungry. I have lost 12lbs since I became pregnant. I try not to complain, but it is hard feeling like crud every single day. Then you have to add in the headaches, backaches and constipation. :) I try to stay positive because we waited a long time to get to this point. Hope this helps, although if you have some magical potion to make it go away completely - that would be great as well! :)

My sister ended up cutting each of hers in half when her insurance stopped paying for it.

I'm only 6 weeks along, and the nausea has been fairly manageable so far, although of course not my idea of a good time.
