Recently, a friend that said EnerG has a cracker just like saltines. I haven't tried them yet either. Good luck!

Ginger (tea, straight, capsules, candy) can help. Licorice can help, but be careful as it can raise blood pressure, even without very large doses. (For some of us with low blood pressure duringr pregnancy, this can be a useful thing. For those prone to high blood pressure, a very bad thing!)
Raspberry leaf and nettle leaf can be good and make a great tea, especially when combined with rose hips (vitamin C!) and hibiscus. (Some women prefer to wait until after the first trimester for raspberry leaf tea. This is partly due to the misunderstanding that raspberry leaf can induce uterine contractions. Many people do not avoid it in the first trimester.)
Eating frequented, small meals that are not too carb heavy is VITAL. Protein in every snack, and no avoiding fats either. (I practically lived on avocados and eggs during my first trimester.)
Consider not having water during meals, and keep the water cool or tepid, but not cold.
Some prenatal vitamins can make it worse, especially iron, so you might look into changing supplements you are taking or find different food sources.
Also, acupuncture has helped many people I know (including myself) with prenatal nausea (and other complaints).

And apples. Every color, variety.... I have no idea why but apples still help me when I'm sick at my stomach.

Does anyone have any suggestions for morning sickness? Obviously, saltines are out, but I'm not sure what good alternatives would be.
I ate salty gluten-free corn tortilla chips and real lemonade in front of a fan or cold AC. Oranges helped too. Avacados are great, too.
