I found trying to always keep “something” in my stomach helpful…..to never let it get empty…..helped.
My deepest sympathies to anyone who has to deal with this.
I had severe morning sickness in both my pregnancies. It started earlier than mentioned in this article, at 5 days after conception and continued until delivery both times. My first symptoms of pregnancy was extreme aversion to smells, followed closely by the vomiting. I wish I had cared for my teeth more carefully early on. I began rinsing with baking soda and water after vomiting. I never had cavities until after my pregnancy. My other tip is to buy lots of gallon sized baggies and never leave home without them. I also kept a wet washcloth in a baggie when out and about. Best wishes! This is tough duty but it is worth it when you get that little bundle in your arms, I promise!
