    All very good advise. I also tried to eat something every 2-3hours, even if it was some fruit or cheese and crakers. Just like when I was pregnant.

    I liked the oyster crackers. I also drank a clear liquid protein drink called enlive that I first received in the hospital. then ordered it online. Its also good to have some crackers before you get out of bed.

    My two cents
    There's a great ginger tea, the brand is called Yogi, it did wonders for me.

    And another thing is to use and alcohol soaked towelette, if your sniff it
    the nausea disappears, no idea why but it truly works.

    I was fortunate...
    any twinges of nausea I had were quickly relieved sipping on room temperature Canada Dry ginger ale.
