Thank you. It has a little. I'm having a bad day today, but I had a nice full week of not feeling much nausea at all, so I feel like it's getting better.

I know it's probably already been suggested to you, but just in case.... I found peppermint oil (smelling it) and drinking peppermint tea to be very effective in controlling nausea. Also anything sour, they make sour drops to suck on, or vinegar based like italian dressing.

Hope you feel better!

Thank you so much. I have been sucking on peppermints and sometimes lemons. I think sour candies would be a really good idea, though.

There is research that shows peppermint tea to be very effective for stomach troubles because it relaxes the smooth muscle of the gut. Prior to working in the ICU, I was a surgical nurse and I recommended peppermint tea to all patients experiencing post anaesthetic nausea and gas pains - worked like a charm!

Yes! Baby was born on the 22nd, and we brought her home on Christmas day. I had to have a C section so I was in the hospital a little while longer than normal. She's healthy and perfect and we love her! Her name is Cescily. If anyone is interested in seeing pictures of her, we have a facebook fanpage dedicated to Her and Parker. Parker is our Dachshund who has not left her side since we brought her home. https://www.facebook.com/Parkerandces?ref=hl
