Unfortunately, there's no hard and fast treatment that will work for every woman's morning sickness. Every pregnancy will be different.
But there are some changes you can make to your lifestyle to hopefully ease your symptoms. Such as...
Sleep: Get plenty of rest (tiredness can make nausea worse)
Avoid Smells: Avoid any smells that have made you feel queasy in the past; the likelihood is they will make you feel sick.
Dry Toast: Eating something plain such as dry toast before you get out of bed can help settle your stomach.
Eat Small, Frequent Meals: Plain foods that are high in carbohydrate and low in fat (such as bread, rice, crackers and pasta) can ease that sick feeling.
Stick to Cold Foods: Cold foods give off less of a smell than hot ones, meaning no queasy smells
Water: This is a pretty obvious one drinking lots of fluids will always help.
Ginger: Eat foods or drinks containing ginger – there's some evidence ginger may help reduce nausea and vomiting (check with your pharmacist before taking ginger supplements during pregnancy)
Acupressure: There's some evidence that putting pressure on your wrist, using a special band or bracelet on your forearm, may help relieve the symptoms
If these don't work for you or you're having more severe symptoms, your doctor or midwife might recommend medication.
