Morning Sickness Ideas Needed

I'm now dealing with full time morning sickness and I could use some help from my readers. With my last child, as long as I ate once an hour, I was ok. With this one, I'm pretty much sick 24/7 and food sometimes helps. This week I can't stand anything sweet and cooking doesn't go so well. I'm asking you guys for some quick and easy ideas for dinners and snacks. I know many of you have been through this before so feel free to give direct links to your blog.

When I first found out I was pregnant, I made up a few snacks and cooked up several batches of meat anticipating that morning sickness would kick in. Unfortunately, I didn't cook nearly enough as I've just about run out of everything.

I noticed that Money Saving Mom increased her grocery budget during the first trimester to help out with her inability to deal with food. I've had to slightly increase ours too as I'm looking at more quick prep meals and occasional fast food. Any other ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for all of the comments and links - I look forward to them all. I will be back with more money saving articles this week once I figure out how to settle my stomach a little.

Try some Lifesavers, Nauzene, and those nifty acupressure bracelets. They all helped me SO MUCH.

Gateraide helped me a lot. Hmmm, would carrot sticks be a good easy snack?

That stinks! I had morning sickness the last week of my 1st trimester, and it was HORRIBLE! I had ritz crackers at my nightstand, and would eat a bunch before I got out of bed.
& the migraines are the worst. Hopefully they'll go away (or atleast be farther spaced).
Good luck, and congrats!
