This sounds like a horrible way to experience pregnancy.
Have you had an ultrasound? Has your doctor given you any ideas for treatment at all? How is your weight holding up?
Have there been an ultrasound or any attempts at treatment?
There are many things to try. Taking Vitamin B6 50mg 3 times daily plus 1/2 of a Unisom tablet at bedtime can help a lot. Unisom is an over-the-counter sleep medication that will say on the package not to use during pregnancy without consulting with your doctor. It is safe to use in early pregnancy and VERY COMMONLY used for this purpose. It is safer than any of the other medications we sometimes need to use. The Unisom can be used up to 1/2 tablet 3 times daily too but often just a bedtime dose keeps the nausea away for most of the day. Drinking ginger ale can help. Nibbling on crackers can help, keeping the stomach just a little bit with food in it. There is also an acupressure point on the wrist that can be pressed when there are waves of nausea. It is called PC6. It is on the inside of the wrist and is the same point used for sea sickness bands. Sometimes I put a very tiny needle in that location on a small bandaid that sticks to the skin. A woman can press the little needle when there are waves of nausea. Here is a link to check: http://www.birth.com.au/Accupuncture-accupressure-and-aromatherapy/Nausea-vomiting-point l
Has anything like this been tried yet?
But there is just a single baby and all looks well?
What is the due date?
So your "morning sickness" is lasting longer then typical.
But if the weight is holding up, not decreasing then it's ok. The urine should be light yellow if possible, so drinking enough water to keep it light yellow is important.
Then trying the above with Unisom and B6 plus the acupressure point if possible.
Some women have this nausea with bilous vomiting longer than typical.
But as long as the urine is staying light yellow and no weight loss watching it a bit longer will be fine. Especially since you haven't yet tried the suggestions that will probably help.
