I could probably write up a very descriptive narrative here about how nauseous and horrible I felt during the first trimester of my pregnancy, but I won't for the sake of my readers who are currently experiencing it. I remember that any small mention of something disgusting could potentially send me over the edge (or over the toilet, to be more exact).
Thus, I'll spare you the details and provide solutions instead.
Julie Davine, Vice President of Three Lollies, said that "approximately 70 percent of women experience morning sickness during pregnancy." She explained that, "For most [women], it disappears after the first trimester, but for others, it can last much longer or even the entire pregnancy." Many sources state that morning sickness usually starts in the first month of pregnancy, peaking in the fifth to seventh weeks, and continues until the 14th to 16th week.
Davine explained that Preggie Pops and Preggie Drops are one possible remedy for emesis gravidarum (the medical term for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy). The drops and pops are made with all-natural ingredients (including essential oils) and are completely drug-free.
Other tips for combatting "morning" sickness from the Three Lollies website include:
1. Avoid large meals, greasy foods, and strong smelling foods.
2. Mix salty and tart foods.
3. Eat a snack of protein and carbohydrates.
4. Keep a non-perishable snack next to your bed and eat it before you get up for the day.
5. Get some fresh air.

Just found out i'm pregnant with my first. I need these. Happy Mother's Day to all.
My neice is preggers for the first time and she would love these.
I will be giving this to the next new mom on the block.
These are great and I would LOVE to win these! I'm 9 1/2 weeks knocked up and it looks like morning sickness is going to be sticking around a while...
Oh yes, preggie drops *saved* me during my first pregnancy. I had them everywhere--in my bathroom, next to my bed, in my car glove compartment, in my drawer at work... Now, I'm eight weeks pregnant and just started feeling sick. ugh. Hope you pick my name!

My daughter's teacher would love me for these.

I could use these as I am experiencing morning sickness now.
My sister could really use these right now...She has been having the all-day sickness that I had when I was pregnant, so I know she's miserable! Preggie pops always helped me out! Thanks for the chance to win!
I lived off Preggie pops when I was pregnant as I threw up every day until 6 months. Those pops are amazing for soothing the sickness, at least momentarily. I would love to win some!
Anything that will help curb morning sickness is worth a try in my book. Thanks for doing the giveaway.
I am trying to get pregnant with #3 and I get morning sicknes BAD!!!! I would love to win this and have them ready for when I get pregnant.
I'd love to try it!
This would be great for me, since we are trying to get pregnant again. I'm all for trying something to help with the morning sickness.
Oh how my best friend could use these right now! I'd love to win them for her.
I tried these once and LOVED them. Please randomly select me.
Please choose me! I hated my morning sickness. I had it for the first seventeen weeks of my pregnancy with my daughter!
I see these in all of the baby stores and have never tried them. They look yummy and helpful
Oh, yes! I wish I had these during my 5-6 weeks of all-day "morning" sickness. :) Enter me, please! Thanks! :o)
WOW! have never heard of this...hopefully i can win this for my daughter in law...she has been so sick these first months and nothing works! BUT STILL SHE IS ELATED!!!SO VERY HAPPY...
thanks for the info on the product and the contest...
Why am I just now finding out about these!?!?
Oh defently enter me. My cousin is due around christmas and she is still having AWFUL morning sickness (i feel so bad for her) she would love to have the pops.. I used them when I was pregant with Connor and they were fabulous!
I highly recommend the Preggie Pop Drops to pregnant women. I tried both the pops and the drops, but I liked the flavor of the drops better (the lavender- and ginger-flavored pops kind of freaked me out; I've got to admit I never tried them). I used them throughout my whole first pregnancy!
