Nausea already? - Page 3

post #41 of 66

oh my gosh I was just starting to feel a little worried that I was feeling so fine (aside from strong sense of smell), and then this morning I kept waking up from waves of nausea. Now I remember what this is like. I got up this morning and couldn't even *think* about coffee. and the funny thing is week 6 begins TODAY. Boy did it. I am sitting here hardly able to keep my eyes open, feeling like I am on a miserably rocking ship. Ugh. six more weeks of this. But at least its a good sign for the baba! makes it way harder not to tell anyone!

Getting worse here too. Just threw up for the first time. :-( I'm just six weeks too. Just praying I feel better by our 10th anniversary trip in June (I'll be 13 weeks). I've been looking forward to it for the last few years.

I'm 7 weeks, and I've been feeling horribly sick, but thankfully haven't thrown up yet.

Ugh, I'm approaching 8 weeks now and am SO. DONE. with the feeling sick! Can it be the second trimester yet? Can I just fast forward through May?  If this doesn't go away when it's supposed to, this kid might have to be an only child.  I feel so whiny saying that, I'm not even throwing up, just feeling so blah all the time. I kind of hate food.

 

Sorry for the whine, I'm trying to spare my husband from more of it lol.

Since misery loves company... last night DP decided he wants to cook sardines. I spent the evening hiding in our room because the smell made me want to gag. At least eating helps a bit with the nausea, too bad it does not help with the fatigue and super-sensitive nose (even DP's deodorant is too much at the moment).

 

Praying that this pregnancy is like the last one and come 14 weeks, I'll be on top of the world with energy... praying.gif

When I was pregnant with #3 my DH decided to cook lobster, which was bad enough.  BUT THEN he never washed the pot!  After 3 days of him forgetting I washed the darn thing gagging the whole time.  AND THEN next time I went to cook something on the stove I smelled lobster again because he must've sloshed lobster water all over the darn stove.  I was ready to kill him.  lol.  He is now banned from cooking lobster ever.  In the last couple years he started brewing beer.  I told him if he wants to brew over the next couple months he needs to send me to a hotel.  I almost kicked him out of the bed last night because he just smelled.  Not bad.  Just scented.

Yeah, I am so sick of being sick. DH keeps telling me that I'll feel better in the second trimester, but I don't believe him! All I remember is horrible morning sickness followed by horrible heartburn. :P

Why is it that men smell so bad when you're pregnant? They all stink!

lol.gif So true!

 

Taryn - Tell me about it! After I posted this, I wanted to cook something in the oven and I almost fell back from the fish smell! He just cleaned the form he cooked them in, but the oven was still reeking of sardines. BAH! I ended up making something else for dinner (that required only a stove top).

 

michelle - I hope your DH is right on this one. Being sick the entire time would so hard!

Yesterday I actually vomitted! I had tried all day not to then finally let myself. Ugh. Tomorrow marks 6 weeks, I reeeaaaalllly hope the nausea doesn't get worse.

Also? Food is gross. Unless it's high protein/fat/sodium I don't want it. My spinach salad made me gag. Eww spinach. I usually love it.

I was just worrying that I hadn't really felt sick last night. Then I read back in my blog to this stage of my last pregnancy and felt better after reading where I wrote that the sickness didn't hit until 7-8 weeks. Then this evening I woke up from a nap and BAM....the sickness has arrived! I have a sour stomach and mild heartburn, which will persist and probably get worse until well into the second trimester. Fun, fun, fun!thumb.gif

Oh dear, why am I torturing myself reading this thread?! : )

I am just 6 weeks...the nausea will probably hit me around 8 weeks, and then come and go like a rocking ship until around 16-20 weeks, right around when I start feeling the baby move a lot.

It's NOT going to be good, never had been, I eat like a bird and feel horrible and have food aversions to everything except cereal and peanut butter toast, and the occasional random thing.

I threw up a bit with my 2nd and 5th, but not with the others, but always the nausea moving through.

So I was taking the wrong kind of unisom to help with nausea!  The one I was taking had diphenhydramine instead of doxalymine.  Once I bought the right one and started taking it more often I am back to 80% functioning.  I feel so much better.  If anyone hasn't tried it its worth a try.  I'm am taking half a doxalymine 3 times a day with B6.  I may go up to 4 times a day to see if that helps more.  When I'm getting to the point one dose is wearing off but its not time for the next one I'm feeling pretty sick.  I found this very helpful:

OMG, I am so miserable. I can't remember if it's worse this time than my other pregnancies, or if I just forgot how awful the first trimester really was. And the thing is, I've done a lot of personal growth since my youngest was born, and I feel like I'm a much stronger / less whiny person, and I'm trying so hard not to be a big baby about all of this! But all I want to do is curl up in my bed and hide. greensad.gif

I've moved on from the constant, horrible nausea to constant, horrible nausea punctuated by violent, uncontrollable, hope-I-can-make-it-to-the-bathroom vomiting. Luckily the vomiting only seems to happen when I haven't eaten in a while, and eating makes me feel a little bit better.

I'm so sorry! I have nothing but sympathy. I had terrible morning sickness with my first. It was a trying few months to say the least. I'm taking Benadryl this pregnancy and it is helping. It doesn't make me as sleepy as unisom. Anyway, I hope the rest of your pregnancy is easier!
post #56 of 66
Thanks, scottishmommy. I took phenergan in my first pregnancy, but it just made me fall asleep, which was totally worthless to me. I was working then, so I had to either work sick or take the medicine and call in. Now I can't sleep all day while caring for my older kids!

Luckily I have my awesome husband who comes home and makes whatever I want for dinner and lets me sleep whenever I can.

Unisom isn't making me any more tired than normal.  The dose is so small it might be worth a try.  You could even try a smaller dose to see if it effects you.

So i finally got all the way sick this morning -- after brushing my teeth. For the past few mornings, I have had to really focus to not get sick after brushing my teeth.  I think  everything would be better if I just stopped brushing my teeth!!! Unfortunately, that is really not a solution, is it? shrug.gif

This thread has some helpful information:

I am taking the Wild Yam and Milk Thistle and Vit. b. I've felt off and nauseous a little bit, but so far it is manageable. I am hopeful that the Wild Yam will even things out as I go and it will stay at a "low level" of awful instead of just terrible. I can't afford to be stuck on the couch for the next 8 weeks or so! My poor kids and husband need me, although they are very supportive. I just hate feeling down for such a long period of time.

So, I'm trying the Unisom and B6. I took it the first time yesterday, and within half an hour I felt much worse and threw up. I don't know if it just didn't have enough time to work, or maybe it's because I took too much B6? The article y'all linked said to take 12.5mg of B6, but the only pills I could find were 100mg, and too small to even cut in half really. So today I'm trying just the Unisom without the B6. Here's hoping!
