  1. So far the only thing that has really killed me is frying bacon! Blech. But it’s still super early. I know you are probably tired of unsolicited advice but you might want to try fermented cod liver oil (I know… But it is awesome), with magnesium, and maybe acupuncture. I have such a weak stomach but have only had like two waves of nausea thus far and I really think the magnesium / cod liver has something to do with it. Besides they’re excellent for baby anyway! Then again it is still so early for me so I might be eating (and regurgitating!) my words here soon! Just want you to feel better 😦

    • Thank you for the advice. I unfortunately cant do cod liver oil or any fish at all due to an allergy. I have pretty much come to the conclusion that this is how my pregnancy will be throughout and all I can do is try to eat through the hyperemesis and hope something sticks. Now that Im not working I am hoping it will get a bit better as Im not in constant motion.
