Hope this helps!

When I was pregnant the first time many many years ago, I couldn't raise my head out of bed in the morning without getting sick. My doctor had me to eat saltine crackers lying down before I even raised my head. It worked like a charm! Before this my husband used to make himself peanut butter toast. It made me so sick to smell it I couldn't eat peanut butter for years! It may be worth a try with the crackers. Know you don't want to take anything med wise unless you have to. Good luck & congratulations...

if OTC meds like Benadryl (often used for nausea) don't work, then go to your doctor (OBGYN) and ask for a prescription medication. There are many types that won't be harmful to your baby. These include Reglan (Metoclopramide) category A, Zofran (Ondansetron), category B, and the first line treatment is Metoclopramide - category B.
All As and Bs (with some precautions) are safe to take during pregnancy. Category C drugs can be safe but the "C" listing means there are no reliable studies showing whether they are associated with pregnancy complications or damage to the fetus, but also little or no evidence they do cause harm. I'd still stick with As and Bs unless your doctor advises otherwise.
Wearing acupressure wristbands to stimulate the "Nei-Kuan" acupuncture point on your wrist. 
Lemons, particularly the smelling of freshly cut lemons.
Avoiding an empty stomach.
Accommodating food cravings and aversions.
Eating five or six small meals per day, rather than three large ones.
Eating fruits and vegetables high in water content, e.g., tomatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, grapefruit, strawberries, lettuce, spinach, zucchini, grapes, etc.[medical citation needed]
Trying the BRAT diet: bananas, rice, applesauce, toast and tea.[medical citation needed]
Ginger, in capsules, tea, ginger ale, or ginger snaps. Prepare ginger tea by putting ginger shreds in a glass of hot water. Take sips of the tea until nausea is relieved. Ginger candy and capsules are also great alternatives to stop nausea.[medical citation needed]
Eating dry crackers in the morning. Some women benefit from eating crackers before rising out of bed in the morning.
Drinking liquids 30 to 45 minutes after eating solid food.
If liquids are vomited, sucking ice cubes made from water or fruit juice or trying lollipops.

When I was with my first child in 1961-I had MS for all 9 months. I asked my Navy doctors for a med to help. They refused, as they had concerns about side-effects that civilian doctors were ignoring. When my daughter was about 19-the FDA said that the drug used for nausea during the 1960s caused uterine cancer-some of the children had to have hysterctomies by the age of 12-I was so grateful to the Navy that my daughter was spared from this. I threw up so much, that I lost weight each month, until I was 6-7 months along-and then I weighed in heaver because of the baby growing. I had 3 healthy babies-full size, etc. When I was married, I weighed 118- after my third and last baby-I weighed 90 lbs. The doctors told me to eat ice cream sundaes, have malts, eat chocalate cake. I had one doctor that opened his wallet and gave me money to buy sundaes and malts.
The bood work showed that I wasn't anemic-my teeth weren't eroded to show that I suffered from an eating disorder before pregnancy.
