Morning sickness at 9 weeks

Question:
I am just under 9 weeks pregnant and morning sickness has set in. I usually start to feel ill around 2:00am and it lasts until 3:00pm. I have only been sick once, but have had the dry heaves several times. So far I am using crackers and ginger ale, is there anything else that can help? Are tums okay to use? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you
