Ginger

Ginger can also help you deal with nausea and vomiting. It helps block the secretion of acids in the stomach that lead to vomiting and nausea. Additionally, the flavor and smell of ginger can prevent the vomiting sensation. You can have one or two cups of ginger tea in the morning.

    These types of things typically helped me between doses of phenergan, Zofran, and reglan.

    There are many levels of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. I had hyperemesis with he twins and bad n/v with the Hedgehog. Honestly, the best thing for me was phenergan suppositories. But since you can’t pound back prescription antiemetics all day, you’ve got to have little things for breakthrough nausea and puking. And for me, lacing water with tons of lemon or lime juice really got it done. Sour was the way to go.
