For those of you with morning sickness that need company...

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

So with DS it seemed I could not stop throwing up ~ which was somewhat annoying but at least I knew the outcome. Now it seems with this pregnancy that I cannot throw up ~ I just stay sick to my stomach 24/7. I can be at a restaurant and in 5 mins I can go from "X sounds really appetizing" to "X makes me want to puke my brains out" back to "X sounds like what I have to have"...

 

I hate to say it ~ but I would almost rather just puke and get it over with...this back and forth crap is for the birds! I thought it would be comforting when the morning sickness set in as this is a PAL for me (had a 6w6d loss in September). And to some degree it is a level of comfort but also VERY annoying to just not be able to puke. Now I just stay annoyed 24/7.

 

Any other mamas out there feeling this along with me? On top of the morning sickness my little pooch has started and now finding myself needing to find more comfy clothing!

I am right there with you.  It is so annoying!  This is my first, but I have just had the aversions to food, and wanting to throw up, but I can't.  One minute something sounds like the most amazing food in the world, then when it's in front of me, I can't even look at it.  I take it home, and then I heat it up and scarf it down.  Good luck, I hope it ends soon since the end of the first trimester is almost over. (at least it is for me).

I hear you, ladies! With Quinn, I was nauseated 24-hours-a-day for 22 weeks. It was awful. I think I only threw up like eight times during that period, but I was miserable day-in, day-out. This time around, I am nauseated 24-hours-a-day and throwing up a lot more often (like once every other day). Both times the only foods that seemed remotely appealing were fruit, bread and eggs. And I haven't set foot in a restaurant since the week after I conceived! I just keep looking forward to January, but I'm a little scared about how much weight I'll lose by then. With DD, I only lost a pound in the first tri, but this time around I've already lost 8...

me!  ugh...it just kicked into high gear this past weekend (about 7 weeks)...it's awful - I've never had it like this before!  I can't/don't throw up, but the 24-7 nausea has left me barely able to function (or sleep!)...I'm just going through the motions at the moment, praying it lets up around 10-11 weeks like it did with both my boys!

I started feeling better @ 10w. Hang in there!

I feel your pain!  I've got the 24-7 nausea going on to.  I wish I could just throw up and then go on with life.  I think I'd feel so much better if I could.  Have any of you tried starting your day with a popsicle?  I've been starting my day this way for a bit now and it really helps me to coat my stomach with a sugar before even getting out of bed.  Helps me to get some food down too.

I'm 8 weeks 5 days right now and the past couple days I was actually feeling okay.  It was actually making me a little nervous, so I guess my body decided to reassure me because today I feel like I'm about to puke at any moment!  I'm wearing sea bands and constantly trying to eat something small to keep my stomach happy, but it's not working very well today!

It is so funny ~ the days I feel terrible like Monday I just wish I could feel better. Then I feel better like today ~ and wish I could feel worse to know everything is okay (as if that is a sign things are okay). I get so annoyed with the constant nausea wishing I could just puke and move on. The one thing I found is having hard candy to suck on seems to help. Trouble is I have a cough right now and just about every time I cough I gag! I have a super sensitive gag reflex anyway...but now it seems like it has a hairtrigger...LOL!

I feel everyone's pain.  I am sick everyday, but I do seem to feel better most days from 11-3, so it is like a mini-break.  But then in the evening I spend my time vomiting.  And it doesn't make me feel any better.  I wish it did, but I normally start vomiting which makes me gag and then vomit/dry heave some more.  It's pretty terrible.  I did get a script for Zofran and when I take it I feel less like a puking type zombie.  I can't wait until it subsides (which for me last time was at week 20).

I will miss the joys of Thanksgiving this year. Just don't cook in my kitchen!

I'll be almost 12w by Thanksgiving and am hoping for a decent enough day. At this point I'd rather sleep all day than do family stuff. Tonight I'm cooking dinner for my kids for the first time in about two months thumb.gif Their diet has been fairly atrocious lately.

I am cooking dinner at home for the first time in over a month myself ~ and pitiful as it is I am cooking frozen lasagna and green beans! Lucky for DH and DS ~ lasagna actually sounded good for dinner. I am not looking forward to the turkey on T-day but I am looking forward to all of the cheesy casseroles we fix! I fear that even with the MS I am going to be big as a house given all of my distinct cravings this time around.

I will say that the chorus of my childrens chewing sounds is just about the grossest thing I've heard all day. They're not wild animals or anything (sometimes) but it's hard to take none the less.

I've been feeling really horrid this pregnancy too. I had my first prenatal today and got some Zofran. It did seem to help. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has been slacking on feeding her children properly. I feel so bad but I haven't been able to face cooking and my dh isn't home to do it. So the zofran seemed to enable me to actually cook dinner tonight which is good.  I'm 10 weeks and hoping this part is over soon!

I took Zofran with DS but they only had the tablets you put under your tongue then ~ and it got to the point that just the taste of the Zofran tablets would send a vomit reaction! I was just told they have a pill form ~ so if this gets any worse for me I will definitely be calling! So far though I seem to be only throwing up a couple times weekly. I am hopeful that it will not last the entire pregnancy like it did with DS ~ I threw up until I had him and even afterwards!

does zofran help with nausea, too, or just the vomiting?  I haven't gotten a thing accomplished this week - at work OR home! :/ 

post #18 of 26

I have found that it helps a little with the nausea not a bunch.  I needed to take some prevacid (which helps with the over abundance of stomach acid that I had and the Doc stated that it should help with the nausea also).  I still have the dry heaves but on the zofran I am not vomiting multiple times a day and the nausea is much more manageable.  I can work.

I cooked! I cooked!

Well, not really, but I did fry up some shumai that was frozen. For me that was a miracle last night. I don't want to say it's letting up... but I am having a few good days.

Whatever you do, especially those of you who have germ toting kids, don't get a cold! Sore throat + puke = pain. And, since you are having nausea, I won't go into detail about how nauseating mucous is.

Strangely, trapeze is helping me... I started doing it  last summer and I think the exertion and focus is helping. I don't feel like doing anything, but I go and think I'll just watch and then I do it and feel better.

post #20 of 26

Ugh. I have a little cold and keep waking up from a dead sleep positive that I'm going to vomit all over myself. Luckily I just cough like a fool and go back to sleep. Don't get a cold, ya'll!  

 

Trapeze sounds amazing!
