Morning Sickness Mamas - Page 3

post #41 of 103

Oh I meant to add. I'm a puker. Yeah. If it's gonna make me feel better it's totally worth it. When I'm sick it usually does. I don't know how morning sickness is. Maybe you still feel awful after. In which case I won't be puking lol.

I have never had sickness during pregnancy and now I am so sick! :(  This is my 4th baby... how could I have never had it before and now feel so miserable. It is actually making me nervous and fear something is wrong because I've never experienced this before. No puking, but I feel like I could at every moment of the day!

Usually there is some relief after puking with morning sickness - even when I had hyperemesis. My aunt told me that she used to just drink a glass of water immediately when she got up so that she'd yak and get it over with. Then she was fine for the rest of the day, and the water diluted the stomach acid.

This time I'm not vomiting like I did with DD, but it has been really close. I just feel super queasy and food isn't so attractive. I've had a lot of crackers and cheese. greensad.gif

No morning sickness here yet but it's early.  With my first pregnancy, I had problems weeks 9-12.  No puking, just some nausea and a lot of discomfort under my breast bone -- and I felt compelled to lay/sit in a certain way to relieve it.    Luckily, it all stopped around week 12.

Why is it that I can have a day like yesterday, where I felt GREAT and not sick at all, and then have a day like today where I can't move without wanting to vomit?

I'm having trouble with all day nausea. It's so bad at times I can't lie down or stand up without it overwhelming me. Food doesn't really seem to help dissipate it. I tried the ginger stuff in previous pregnancies, and I just don't like ginger enough to make it through the gross flavor for some nausea relief. The only food that actually sounds good to me right now is vegetables and salad. My kids keep asking if I want ice cream, and I had a bite and I was super sorry. I'm trying to be grateful for the nausea, as I feel like it is a sign that everything is progressing as it should. It is just hard to be grateful for something that makes you feel so bad all day long!!

 

I've never actually thrown up from morning sickness, but I always wished that I would. My friend that did actually throw up told me that it never relieved anything for longer than a few minutes for her. That made the desire to throw up go away a little bit, if it wasn't going to help I wasn't really that into it!

I am feeling much better so far this pregnancy.  Right at 6 weeks.  I'm taking the B6 (25 mg in the morning, 25 at night and my prenatal I think has 10), wearing the seabands and pressing them whenever I feel sick, eating often and protein focused and listening to anti-nausea hypnosis.  Oh, and eating ginger candies also whenever I feel icky.  Seems to be working so far!

If ginger is gross, you might try some sour candies like lemon drops. My friend used to drink pickle juice to calm her sick stomach...I almost barfed because I was pregnant, too.

I can't use ginger because after trying to use it the first time to stop a nervous tummy, I now only associate the taste of ginger with the taste of vomit. Yugh! Who wants to eat vomit flavored candy?!

 

I was incredibly sick with my daughter. I tried every single thing under the sun and nothing worked except sipping ice water (had to be REALLY cold - like, more ice than water) or ice water with lemon it it which was even better. Next time, I'll keep lemons on hand and suck on them. I've heard that works best. I was also able to keep from hurling by setting up a fan and humming into it. I don't know why, but the weird noise seemed to totally distract me.

So i tried the ginger pills today and they worked really well except I waited till I felt so sick I couldn't drink enough water to get it all the way down so about 20 min later my throat started feeling all warm and burny lol oops. Next time i will try to get down a little bread or something after it.

This is me, too. I still have a number of aversions from PG1. And the only thing I really crave in pregnancy is ice water! That's actually one of the things that tipped me off earliest this time; all of a sudden I could not abide drinking any water that wasn't ice-cold.

I feel sick every day until about 8:30 pm. No puking.  I was only mildly nauseous the 1st time and peppermint tea usually fixed that easily.  Now it's not enough.  Bubbly water does seem to help... as does ice cream.   Going to try ginger today.

 

It's very weird feeling really sick AND wanting to eat everything at the same time.  I am craving high-fat food for sure.

The queasiness I was feeling has turned into full-time nauseousness ever since I hit the 6 week mark. Lemon drops are helping, and eating teeny tiny portions when I do eat real food. I don't know what to do about the fact that I feel sick pretty much 24/7 though. I have a really busy weekend ahead and I don't know how I'm going to make it through when I feel so miserable!

I've been sick the past week, and every day seems to be getting worse!  I'm trying hard candy's, saltines, and cold drinks (water and iced tea), but am going to try ginger next.  

 

Anyone have advice on how to hide this at work?  I can't eat like I normally do, so my typically social lunchbreaks are now 'awkward.'  And, I'm always aware when someone is in the bathroom with me... how do I hide the fact that I'm puking?  

 

I can't wait for this part to be over.  My poor DD is only 2 and I'm such a drag now.  :(

How big is your workplace? In a small environment it is really hard to hide, but you could do lunch in your car. Bring bags and puke outside if you're able. At a bigger workplace, it is easier. You can use a bathroom away from your desk if you can make it. If someone asks, you can tell them you caught a bug or have an ulcer or something. I wasn't able to hide it with DD because my workplace was small and not well insulated for sound, so EVERYONE heard me puke. Wouldn't have been so bad, but I was puke a good 7-8 times a day. I had to fess up by 6 weeks when I hadn't planned on it.

I don't know, but I had all-day nausea badly all last WEEK, and this week, I feel mostly fine with some waves of yuck.  It's strange, and worrying.  It's very weird to almost want to feel sick so that I know everything's ok.  On the other hand, I started feeling better after I started taking B6 each day, I hope that's the reason.

I rarely throw up unless I'm full on stomach virus.  So far, I've been hit with intermittent nausea throughout the day from DPO6 (clear implantation dip) to now.  I drink a lot of La Croix water.  redface.gif  I go from heartburn and needing to eat something to help that, to nausea after eating, so wishing I hadn't eaten.  Food aversions are starting - including almost all meat (with the unlikely exception of fish for some reason, I really really REALLY wanted sushi yesterday - although the thought of it today made me want to gag, so, there you go).  I never had a moment of nausea with my first pregnancy, fair to moderate nausea with my second, and this time seems a bit more consistent with moments of worse... so I'm just wondering if each time gets worse...

Does anyone else have the issue of being insanely hungry WHILE feeling too sick to eat? It's driving me nuts. My stomach hurts because I'm starving, but if I eat anything, I'll vomit. Right now I can pretty much eat pickles (you can't eat enough to feel full, btw), ice cream (for the cold) and this chow mein from my fave Chinese place (which DH picks up about once a week to let me feel full, lol). Like others here, this is definitely my worst pregnancy yet, which prompts everyone to say this one is a girl. We shall see. 

 

Tip for the pukers, take some TUMS. They're safe for pregnancy and while meant for heartburn, I found out many years ago that if you chew a couple right before you actually get sick, they make it so you just vomit foam instead of the horrid acid. Much better on throat and teeth. And, very occasionally, they settle the stomach. I hate the taste of them because of this, but if I'm throwing up anyway, I might as well do it in semi-comfort!

Thank God for you all! I was beginning to think I was a serious drama queen. My life feels like it is on hold due to this horrible 24/7 MS. I can hardly brush my teeth or floss without gagging and hurling.

My friend she's an RN told me that severe MS is due to extreme dehydration. Sipping water does help but it's boring and unexciting:(

I started using B12 lollipops that my acupuncturist gave me and they seem to help for a moment.

Praying for all of us for this nausea to ease up:)joy.gif
