@Anna: I have a phobia of throwing up. I literally have panic attacks when I feel nauseous, and I tried everything when I was pregnant to avoid morning sickness. I never did throw up, thank goodness, although nausea was horrible the first 12-16 weeks. Here are some remedies I tried that I think helped:
-Saltine crackers by the bed, nibble on them as soon as you wake up, before you even get out of bed!
-Eat small and frequently throughout the day, keeping something in my stomach seemed to help.
-Sip ginger ale or the ginger candies, but you don't like ginger... I've heard of sipping on coke helping also.
-Frozen lemonade ice cubes to suck on! LOVED frozen lemonade slushes, worked wonders for me!!
-Sea bands you wear on your wrists seemed to help (for motion sickness but work for morning sickness, too, as they make mama bands, which are the exact same thing)
-Plain white tic tacs to suck on throughout the day helped me
-Sipping chamomile tea (I used ginger and lemon tea but you don't like ginger)
-Spoonful of mustard at the start of feeling nauseous
-Stay away from lunch meat
The hot chocolate was probably a little too heavy when already nauseous. Sometimes saltines are too bland for people, so I also ate Ritz or gold fish crackers. Did the same thing for me. Hope some of these help! Morning sickness sucks the worse, but it'll go away in a few more weeks. Hang in there.

@crystal seems like most things have ginger in... Ironic lol... I see that if I just sit still and breathe it helps but my job requires me to walk around a lot so I'll defs try the sea bracelet and I'm picking up motion sickness syrup after work as it apparently helps instantly... I'm psyched to be pregnant but I hate having nausea so I need to do something about it lol

@Alex shouldn't they be getting lighter now not staying the same if i had already O'd? I'm a POAS addict so I am constantly testing and they've all been the same, tho I don't test before bed so I may have missed it. I'm just so confused. I seem to remember last cycle my boobs didn't start hurting till after I had O'd so hopefully that is what is going on here. I am going to continue to test just because I want to make sure we don't miss this egg and I just can't help myself, ill test until about a week before when I should be getting AF then I will switch to HCG tests. Sorry your not feeling well, hopefully it passes quickly for you.
@Anna so sorry about your morning sickness but like other people said its a sign that this is a healthy pregnancy! I hope you find something to help you feel better! With my first daughter I was so sick and it lasted until I was about 25 weeks! sometimes it feels like nothing will make it better...
