There's a whole forum on the helpher.org site devoted to it ("crackering" it's called). I had one ER nurse who was CONVINCED I would stop vomiting if onnnnnnnly I'd eat cream of wheat. IDIOT!

Lots of things they can play with near you on their own. IME it's a matter of "whatever it takes to make the day go by till Dad is home". As for your midwife, insist she RX more or go see another doctor for the RX. That's NOT acceptable when the full dose is 32mg/day (8mg/4x). My second full term pregnancy threw me. It was...
So glad you got the RX. {{{{HUG}}}} :
