medtech254 :

Vomiting between 4-10 weeks happens in 90%+ of all women. This is normal and the highest rate of occurrence is between weeks 7-10. There are a few things you can due to help with this.

medtech254 :

Maintain adequate hydration and electrolyte levels; drinking at least 2 liters of water a day. Avoid an empty stomach at all times, with small frequent meals every 1–2 hours, consisting of bland foods throughout the day. Prevent a full stomach (ie, not mixing solids with liquid; avoiding large meals and very fatty food). Avoid strong tasting, odorous foods (ie, spicy, metallic tastes).

medtech254 :

Snack on nuts and high protein foods between meals.

medtech254 :

Consume ice chips, popsicles, and very cold beverages to help reduce metallic taste.

medtech254 :

Eat simple dry carbohydrates (ie, crackers, biscuits, etc) prior to getting out of bed in the morning.

medtech254 :

As the pregnancy progresses past 10 weeks this will resolve itself.
