Morning Sickness VENT thread - Page 2

post #21 of 104
I'm only 5.5 weeks and I started throwing up yesterday. Last time I was sick from 6-17 weeks and lost about 12 lbs. Anyone here have experience with acupuncture to relieve morning sickness? Right now I don't get sick until the afternoon, but I am nervous about it getting back to all day sickness in the coming weeks.

Really feeling ya right now. I'm only 4w3d and I've already had MS for almost a week, though no vomiting yet. This time I've had smell sensitivity, too, which I didn't have with DS. I think I had too much to eat tonight, which triggered it. I had two black bean burgers and about 1/2c of Ben and Jerry's. I have Preggie Pops, but I'm afraid to try one because the thought of putting anything in my mouth makes me gag right now. Ugh.

Yep, I've already thrown up 3 times and I'm only 4 weeks today!!! I don't remember being this sick this early with DD. Ginger ale mixed with lemonade is my current best friend! It's working wonders for me. I have a huge glass next to me right now.

Living on Preggie Pops, but they're not helping so much anymore When I was pregnant with DS I was throwing up by 7 weeks, the gag reflex was so bad. I'm sitting at 6 weeks 3 days right now, and WISH I could just throw up! At least with the vomiting I got a little relief

I'm not feeling much morning sickness right now and that has me tempted to worry.

Even with my last pregnancy, that stopped developing at 7wks and didn't pass until 12wks, I was so sick the whole time.

With DD I was sick 6-16wks.

Now I'm past six weeks and the queasiness is so mild I don't know WHAT to think. I'm grateful, but this is weird and I don't know if it's a sign of something bad....

grrr....

I'm 7 weeks and have been sick since 4 weeks.... enough already. I 'm so sick of it. I was nauseous/ throwing up with my other pregnancies till 20-25ish weeks.... its getting so OLD. That mixed with the tiredness makes me useless. Why does it have to be so difficult to grow a baby?

Olive, if this doesn't improve, you could talk to a professional about medication. My best friend couldn't get up and go to work without puking, so she was prescribed a drug that they give to cancer patients for nausea. If the cannibis didn't work, this may not either, but it could be worth a shot! Hang in there!

I take it back! the queasiness is here. blech.
post #29 of 104
I did accupuncture with my 3rd....it worked a little bit...i think it made the nausea about 1/2 of what it would of been with out.
I'm 6w3d and have very low energy, i get queasy after i eat and at night...around 8pmish i crash physically and the queasiness really sets in. I'm not sleeping well at night....
I bought a new comforter and the feel of it makes me want to hurl. The fabric is horrible. I would never feel that way when i'm not pregnant. I'm thinking i may need to put it away until the queasy feelings go away...but then i may never like it because when i'm prego's and nauseas i have aversions forever to certain things and colors. So this comforter may never come back out! The color of it is starting to get to me too. Goodness that's bad stuff. Colors? Who would of thought that i'd have color aversions....oh and my SUV....i cant stand to get into it. I dont like it...it makes me sick to look at it and even ride in it. I have no choice but to get over that...but geez...an aversion to my vehicle is pretty bad.

I have fallen in love with apple soda...OMG..that stuff is to die for. That's a good thing.

just checking in with my support group. i'm 8 wks today and still feel dead. broke down crying to god begging for relief. my brain is deeply offended to be trapped in this body! TRAPPED is the best way to describe this feeling. prego pops sound good. sooo thankful to have you all during this most trying time.

Big, big to you! I'm 8w today, too and after a LOT of trial and error, I believe that I'm in a good place right now due to the treatments/routines I have going:

1. Unisom/b6 - ESSENTIAL to wellbeing
2. Acupuncture
3. eating every 1.5-2 hours - just small snacks, mainly peanut butter and pretzels (even during the night/early morning)
4. good sleep hygiene
5. practicing relaxation as often as possible
7. asking for and receiving tons of emotional support from my DH and immediate family (long distance, but still helps) I cannot be alone at home - it takes me to a dark and scary mental space that takes hours to come out of.
8. last, but not least, a controversial therapy that brings emotional and physical relief

I pray that those of you suffering will find some relief soon! 6-8 weeks in this misery is far too long

I'm thinking #8....may be a really really good idea.
Tell me more about the unisom and b6?

1/2 unisom before bed plus one 50mg b6 either before bed or in the morning. It the "homemade" version of diclectin http://diclectin.com/

You can also take 1/4 unisom tab during the day, but it does cause drowsiness in the first couple of hours. However, for me, I'll take some drowsiness for the relief!

Just google "Unisom for morning sickness" and you'll get all kinds of info - also, ask your midwife/doctor!

It is safe AND effective!

Um, this sucks. What are you ladies eating? I'm only able to eat soup, gluten free english muffins and green apples. Not exactly a balanced diet. And of course I feel nauseous all.day.long.

suzywan, thank you so much for the list! i didn't realize that unisom actually treats morning sickness... i thought it was mostly for sleep. Sleep is definitely weird...super intense dreams and then instantly waking up all night long.

i will be trying those things.

It hit me today. HARD. My lunch came up and I still feel sick and SO tired. 7w4d. I didn't think I was going to be sick this time.
post #37 of 104
7 weeks 3 days and I just want to crawl in a hole and die. I started vomiting yesterday and it feels better for a little while after, but then once I eat the whole cycle starts all over again. Add that to my allergies, which have me sneezing all day and I'm one.hot.mess. I'll be craving something, and then I get it in front of me, and then all of a sudden it's like the nastiest thing in the world and I don't want anything to do with it! Anyone else get that?

I started feeling nauseous at about 4 1/2 weeks so when I saw a doctor at the walkin clinic to confirm I was pregnant I asked for Diclectin. I had to take it throughout both of my previous pregnancies. It didn't take the MS away completely, but it made it a LOT better.

Right now, I'm taking 2 Diclectin per day (one in the morning, one before bed) and it seems to be helping - my nausea is mild and as long as I eat frequently I'm ok. I'm a bit nervous though because the MS hit me badly at 7 weeks in my last pregnancy and right now I'm 6wks, 2 days. If I'm still okay at 8 weeks I will relax.

I really feel for all you mamas who are feeling awful... I remember what that is like... it REALLY sucks. I am totally with you, I'd MUCH rather go through labour than MS.

I love Diclectin - I heard you can't get it in the US? That homemade version of it sounds good though - definitely worth a try if you can't get your hands on Diclectin.

Feel like I was run over by a truck this morning. I was up throwing up at 6:30am and threw up about 5-6 times until 11am when I finally was able to eat a bagel.. I'm 5w6d and today is our ANNIVERSARY Why did this start today? We have a sitter to go to dinner too. Praying I'll feel better. DH is coming home a bit early today so I'm praying for a nap. Also going to try the unisom/B6 combo. My kids have been watching movies and eating snacks all day because if I even sit up I have to run to the bathroom. Atleast my 4yo can get drinks and snacks.

I feel like I have the stomach virus a.l.l.d.a.y.l.o.n.g. Not throwing up, not even close to throwing up, just nauseas all the time. Ugh.
