In my case, caffeine always did it for me—just the smell or taste of coffee or coke or any caffeine substance, and I felt the bile rising and the urge to up-chuck. The general rule of thumb in combating morning sickness is to listen, really listen, to your body. If you feel you can’t eat a particular food, then focus primarily on hydration, in other words, push fluids into your body. And don’t eat until you feel better (with the obvious qualification that you have to eat something sometime).

The OB determines when you should get the pain medicine, not the anesthesiologist, who is basically a consultant. Doctors rarely will say that a patient can’t get pain meds unless there is a medical contraindication for giving them.
