constant nausea during pregnancy - how to make it better
My sister is 10 weeks pregnant and she has been experiencing constant nausea form the sixth week of her pregnancy. It doesn't get better, even though the doctor has prescribed medication. Is there anything else that could be done to relief this?

She could try simple measures like eating small frequent meals rather than large ones, eating dry toast first thing in the morning, avoiding very spicy foods. The nausea often tends to get better after about 14 weeks.
