Keep some crackers, maybe something salty, crackles at the bedside, and make sure that you're eating every two to three hours and never let your blood sugar drop too low, when your blood sugar drops, that can often precipitate you having a bout of nausea. Keeping some sour candy with you, some ginger candy with you, anything eating or drinking that has ginger or peppermint in it may help.
