For those of you with morning sickness that need company... - Page 2

post #21 of 26

Hi ladies

Haven't been on the forum too much. I too have been suffering from all day sickness. Filled my prescription for Zofran. It helps with the nausea/vomiting a little bit. Been trying to eat small meals throughout the day. My husband was is in training for his new job-so he is gone all week and comes home only on the weekends. I have been exhausted taking care of my dd(6) and ds(3) and  working full time (12 hour shifts at night) as a nurse. The hardest thing for me is grocery shopping and cooking. I try and prepare nutritious meals for my kids but it is so hard to cook that I'm pretty much puking in between cooking :(  But I have achieved putting healthy food on our table. I noticed that if I stay away from processed foods, they stay down better. Work is hard too. I do a job where I come into contact with many smells. Just last weekend I took off a dressing from a diabetic foot that had an infestation of maggots-yuck. I am hoping the nausea/vomiting go away soon. I cant wait to be able to fully enjoy my pregnancy. I was able to see/hear my little beans heartbeat on ultrasound a couple days ago and it made it so much more real. Here is for another 3 1/2 weeks until hopefully I feel better (I felt better at 12 weeks with my other two). I hope everyone here feels better soon. Hang in there. I keep thinking of the beautiful baby I will be holding/nursing this summer and it makes me feel motivated to get through this stage.

i'm with you on this one. except i'm actually vomiting almost daily. and it doesn't really make me feel better - it just wears me out and then i'm back to the nausea. yesterday, i threw up three times; it's a drag! i'm a little over 9 weeks. those of you who say it lasted until the 20's are scaring me!

Everyone told me that my 2nd pregnancy might not be as bad as my one with DS ~ my response is I would rather be surprised than unprepared...so I figured I would be sick the entire time and if I am not then it will be a pleasant surprise! That being said ~ most people I know felt a lot better in their 2nd trimester...and even I did (even though I was still puking). I found a way to kind of throw up and keep moving by the 2nd trimester with DS...fell into a pattern I guess!

I'm there too... this pregnancy has been the worst bout of hyperemesis I've ever experienced. I'm on 9+ diclectin per day, plus Gravol for breakthrough, and Zofran in the cupboard just in case. And with all that I'm down to a "managable" feeling horrifically nauseated 18+ hours a day and occasionally puking. When I puke it feels WORSE, not better. I stay heaving for hours, and when I puke I puke so hard that tears stream down my face. It's awful. I would do just about anything to make this go away.

Hi Ladies!

 

Today I'm 9 weeks and 2 days pregnant with Twins!! I had all day sickness with my 12 yr old son for the whole pregnancy so I knew this one was going to be bad. I actually just got out of the hospital for dehydration!

 

Here's what I've learned... There are 3 pills you can take for vomitting... Phengren (which makes you sleepy and doesn't help much with sickness), Zofran (which is pretty good, it doesn't make you sleepy) and Reglan (which is great also).

 

My problem is, is that I love to guzzle water while I eat. They figured out at the hospital that the food and water does not mix well with my stomach. It's been hard for me to not drink while I eat, but as long as I only take a couple sips while I eat, I don't get as sick. Every time I threw up, the water would come up first, so this is what lead them to have me try to not drink while eating.

 

Also, I have to eat as slow as possible, which means sometimes eating cold food.I also don't eat large meals. When I'm done eating, I have to get up slowly and go sit in my chair for atleast 30 minutes to have all my food settle without my body moving.

 

Also, NO FRIED FOODS! The grease doesn't settle well with your stomach!

 

I know this may be alot of info, but man, when you're pregnant and feeling like crap, any help you can get is great. I know when I first got sick with these twins I was googlin' everything and couldn't find the answers the hospital gave me. So hopefully this will come as help to some of you.

 

Good luck to everyone!!!

 

Here's to happy and healthly pregnancies and EATING!!!

So far the zofran has really been helping me. I feel a little neauseous (sorry that is a word I can never spell right) still but I can actually eat and drink water. I think I was getting horribly dehydrated.  I have been cooking and even cleaning a little bit. So I would say even if you're not vomiting all the time and just have the constant about to puke feeling zofran might actually still help.

 

Lilyrn11-I cannot imagine working 12 hour shift right now. Major props to you.
