Ditch the old wives’ tales, drinking a glass of water every morning, or eating a cracker before you get out of bed will not help you. I tried. Talk to your doctor for what he or she thinks will work best for the circumstances. There are medications out there and your doctor can tell you if it is right for you. There is also one over the counter treatment that you can try prior to speaking to your doctor.

This is usually a last resort or if the doctor realizes you are dehydrated and need medical attention immediately.
Morning sickness does subside a bit when you hit about the 12 week mark, the beginning of your second trimester. It can last throughout the pregnancy but it is rare for it to be as severe as it is the first trimester.
