Jillgayle- I have heard of high-protein, gluten-free, and Paleo diets helping women beat severe ms or HG. I was gluten free for a few months before I got pregnant, but now that I am starting to feel sick, I have been deviating from that and eating things I KNOW I shouldn't. I really need to stop that TODAY.
Mykidskisstrees- that sounds just awful. Do you have a doctor or midwife suggesting or prescribing anything for you?
Crafty-are you still there? How are the phenergan and B6 working for you?
As for me, I am doing ok. I am only 5w4d or so, and yesterday was the first day I felt nauseous all day. I think the main reason I am still able to eat is that I don't have any smell aversions right now. I am drinking water as I can and a 1/2 water, 1/2 gatorade mix. With my first pregnancy, I was on the floor at 6 weeks. With my second, I was hospitalized at 8 weeks. I celebrate everyday I go with no vomiting and still standing. I am taking a lot of supplements right now, but I think I'm going to change up today. Here is what I am taking and doing to combat HG:
1. 100mg B-6 1x/day (I'm looking for a smaller dosage I can break up
2. 150 mg Milk Thistle (naturopath wanted me to "hold off on it" but acknowledged it's probably fine to take during pregnancy). I will try to take this 2x today
3. 12.5 mg phenergan nightly
4. I think I might add a probiotic today.
