Talk with doctor to prescribe you medication. It is said that ginger is a good solution. You can also take pyridoxine(vitamin B6) which helps. Good luck !

During this time, morning sickness will be more, need not worry about it.. These are positive symptoms only.. This will continue till end of 3months.. only thing, u have to drink lots of water.. Morning Sickness will cause dehydration, so always carry a 1ltr water bottle with u, u will not forget to drink it.. don worry just enjoy it.. now am 10wks, I had the same, with more vomitting.. watever i take, it ll come out within 8-10 min, I just say, my baby does not like tat food, she is just kicking out..  dont take these as burden.. just enjoy these moments with ur baby.. take care both of u..

I ate saltine crackers which would help ease some of the nausea.  I also wore a sea band it didnt always work for me but it might help you. A girl I know ate lemons to help her with nausea.

My nausea was so bad, I had to go to the Emergency Room. My doctor there recommended smelling rubbing alcohol. There's something in it that blocks nausea receptors. It worked, but as soon as I would stop smelling it, the nausea would come back.  I found it stayed away longer if I would sniff the rubbing alcohol and then ate something, anything while the nausea was gone. If I didn't eat, my nausea would be worse. Hang in there! I'm 17 weeks now, nausea subsided around 13-14 weeks.

I had severe morning sickness (and constant vomiting) from about 5 weeks until I gave birth. This is rare, but happened to me. I'm in my 2nd pregnancy now, it's going much better. Stay as hydrated as you can first and foremost, drink chocolate milk, water, tea, ice, whatever you can if you're feeling very sick. And if you find yourself excessively dehydrated because of vomiting or something,  go to urgent care ASAP. 

Also, if you do start vomiting, do talk to your dr about antiemetics. The over the counter stuff you can try is unison and b6 (doxylamine I believe).

Hopefully it gets better for you soon.
