Unsalted saltine crackers will become your best friend. Keep a pack in your purse for when your tummy gets upset. Or if the morning sickness stays really bad, there is dr. Prescribed pills that can help:) good luck and congrats!

Prescribed is definitely a life saver if OP is anything like how I was the first few months of my pregnancy. I couldn't keep anything down. I highly recommend asking your doctor about Diclegis. It was the only nausea medication that made me feel normal

Wait.. so a police officer tried to do a breath test on a pregnant woman?? I'd say that's a weird situation...xD

@25 you would be surprised, sadly. Can't count how many times I've been out at a bar and went outside to smoke only to see an obviously pregnant lady outside smoking with a beer in hand..

You know you have the right to refuse a breath test, right? They can't force you to do it.

I hope you're joking. Refusing a breathalyzer or field sobriety test is an automatic loss of license for a year nearly everywhere, and usually includes getting points on your license (also a huge fine in Australia.) This is called the "implied consent law" that you agree to when you first receive your license.

Actually #14 your wrong. You can refuse a random breathalyzer test as they do not have any cause for suspicion and can't legally force you to do it under these circumstances. You can go through dui checkpoints etc without being checked if you know the laws and how to deal with the power hungry cops(most cops are good but some have issues that need to be addressed) . The only time they can legally require you to be tested if they have cause for suspicion such as you swerving all over the road and even then you can refuse but the penalty is 2x worse than a dui.

14 must be talking about Aussie laws (cause he mentioned that and OP is an Aussie). In America we like to give drunk drivers the benefit of the doubt. So technically you're both right.

In New York, refusing breathalyzer tests will result in suspension or revocation of your drivers license. It also adds around 5 points and can lead to a fine of up to $10,000. You have no such right to refuse.

#7 & #16 in queensland, no, you cannot refuse a RBT as they can then charge you for failing to provide, & that charge can be more than a drink driving charge. plus other consequences. best to just participate in the RBT in australia.

In Britain, a refusal to provide a breath sample is classed the same as failing the breath test and is punished accordingly. That said I believe you can ask for a blood or urine sample to be taken instead - though that might just be for if you blow positive. Either way, she shouldn't refuse to give a sample - I can't think why blowing into a tube would make a pregnant lady throw up. It's not something she or the officer could have foreseen. On the positive side op - it's most probably not the first time the officers had to deal with people throwing up!

In Georgia, refusing a breathalyzer test is an automatic 1 year suspension of your licence. And I believe it adds 3 points to your record (don't hold me to this because I could be wrong. I'm not a driver yet but I recently took an alcohol and drug awareness program [ADAP] course for my licence and this topic was brought up)

Where I live in the USA, you can away with refusing the breathalyzer. Of course, you'll get taken back to the station, possibly have to do a field sobriety test, and taken to a hospital for blood or urine testing. (if you're a minor for alcohol that is suspected of drinking then you are automatically penalized for drinking, and may have consequences from your high school or college even after you pass a breathalyzer, urine, or blood test that proves you weren't drinking)

Wtf are you talking about, it's like with searching your vehicle, you can deny unless they have a warrant, try it. You can deny as long as you have nothing to hide. My husband and I were on a trip to Colorado to see his grandparents and we got pulled over because we had expired tags(also they normally profile us, we drive a 1987 corvette) and they wanted to breathalize him and he said no, they didn't do anything

By  Dillyduzit  |  23

While that definitely sucks for him and was probably very embarrassing for you, I'm sure he understood as long as you explained the situation. Plus the test should have shown that you were not throwing up due to alcohol consumption, so no laws broken! It will be okay :)

By  Attacksloth  |  33

That sounds like it was embarrassing. His fault, though. My wife's best friend kept really bland foods with her a lot because sometimes pregnancy-nausea (for her anyway) happened more on an empty stomach. Good luck, this will all be worth it!
