When I was pregnant with Wendy, I was sick. Around the clock, anytime, anywhere, the nauseousness would rear its ugly head. When we went for our first prenatal visit at 8 weeks, I had lost 12 pounds. The doctor recommended I take half of a regular Unisom tablet at bedtime, and see if that helped.
I was skeptical. A sleep aid? For morning sickness? But I tried it, and it really worked. It wasn't a magic pill - I still had quite a bit of nauseousness, but not the overwhelming, all-consuming, incapacitating illness that I felt prior to taking the Unisom.
At the time, I couldn't find any information online about taking Unisom for morning sickness. This time around, though, I was able to find this article. I'm only 6 weeks pregnant, but I'm already taking my half of a pill every night at bedtime, and I can already feel a difference. You can get generic Unisom at just about any grocery store or drug store.
If morning sickness is plaguing your life, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about giving Unisom a try. The only side effect I've noticed is a bit more drowsiness during the day, but the benefit of not being sick all the time is worth a little drowsiness!
