Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

How did you get over morning sickness?

I am 12 weeks pregnant and I feel like shit. Sorry for my language but that's how I feel. I don't know what to do. I've tried crackers but they taste really dry. Is there anything else that will help?

Ginger! ginger ale is suppose to help a lot. try eating a few crackers before you get out of bed in the morning, and wash them down with a sip of ginger ale! hope this helps :)
I sucked on lemon head lemon drop things they helped me alot. It will pass sooner or later though

I sucked on peppermint candies and I had sleeves of crackers within reach all over the house.
I know this is easier said than done, but just eat something--anything that appeals to you even slightly! I had to eat a little snack every hour because my first indication that I was hungry was the nausea. A typical snack for me was a granola bar, string cheese, or apple slices. Between snacks, I chewed mint or cinnamon flavored gum, and that kept any yucky taste out of my mouth. On the bright side, your "morning sickness" is probably almost over. 
Just give it time. My doctor gave me Meds for my nausea, if it that bad, just talk to your doctor and see what he can give you. But maybe around 14 weeks, you'll start to feel much better. Just hang in there!! :)
Vitiman B injections!!!!! I just finally stopped taking them. My Midwife gave me the first one and within hours i felt better, as soon as i started feeling like shite again (5 days later) she came over and gave me another.
Almonds are good, but really anything you want to eat should work.  I was eating crackers, string cheese, miso soup, and dolmathes (grape leaves stuffed with rice - weird, right?) for a while, and that definitely did the trick. ALSO!  Every pregnant mom should know this - Sea Bands actually do work.  They're little elastic bracelets that have a plastic thing that presses on your wrist pressure points, and they'll relieve nausea.  I got mine at Target for about $6 - just ask for them at the pharmacy.
