Nauseous yet?

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 

Has this started for anyone else yet? I'm feeling nauseous every day from when I wake up in the morning on and off all day but mornings are worse...I try to eat something carby to help... I had pizza for breakfast today!! bag.gif Wondering how long this will last, started week 6 and now I'm 7 and a half weeks. Thankfully no actual vomitting. I have to be up and out super early tomorrow and in the company of other people who don't know yet, so that might be challenging. I'll pack sandwiches to eat around 8.30am if I get desperate for something to take the edge off, hopefully they will help.

Ugh.  I've been extremely nauseous since 5 1/2 weeks, I'm 7 weeks 2 days now. At 6 weeks 4 days I started taking Unisom at night which is helping me sleep (I already take 100mg B6 at night), but I'm worried about side effects (even though midwife says it's safe) and wish I didn't have to take it.

 

I want the next few weeks to just fast forward please!  The first trimester sucks!  You feel terrible, your baby is at a higher risk of miscarriage, it's the worst time!

 

Good news is I had an ultrasound yesterday and the baby was measuring right on target with a strong heartbeat of 155.  Yay!

Ugh! Started feeling a low-level nausea a few days ago, but no vomiting yet. I will be 6 weeks tomorrow. I'm with ninabear on the fast-forwarding through the next few weeks. I did start to feel better after eating some (homemade) refried beans with dinner the other night. Maybe due to the high protein and fiber content in beans? Guess I'll be making a lot of refried beans over the next few weeks.

Oh my goodness I am only about 4w3d and I feel so gross!  I did not have symptoms like this and so early with my first.  I am so worried that I am going to have bad morning sickness this go.  Last time I didn't throw up once.

I just had the worst night so far :( Kept waking up feeling extremely nauseous, I hope that isn't going to be a continuous thing. I had to force myself to eat something at 3am just to make it ease off enough for me to get back to sleep for a while, then 3 hours later I woke up with the same thing and felt really fed up with it. I expected it during the morning, but I'm getting it on and off all day and now during the night too :dizzy I just have to be thankful I don't actually throw up, and hope last night was just a blip.

I had 5 days of very terrible nausea (no vomitting) starting at 6 1/2 weeks.. I finally bought this tea...and it was like a miracle

I am not a tea drinker, but I recommend trying it.

Thanks for the info on that tea. I'm sending my husband to the store RIGHT NOW to pick some up for me.

 

The nausea seems different this pg. It seems like it's always there, but I haven't vomited at all. Last time I spent 5-6 mornings a week hugging the toilet. I'm beginning to wonder if the morning sickness is a bit better this time around because I am not on any additional supplements (aside from pre-natal). Last pg I was also on progesterone supplements until 9-10 weeks. Or maybe this time it's a girl...fingersx.gif

My nausea is much worse this time than with d.s. It is an all day thing with me as well. No food even sounds good to me and I can't even walk by the cat food without gagging. I have not actually vomited yet, but I come close every few hours greensad.gif also my skin looks like crap this time around lots of acne. I feel like a train wreck.

My nausea officially arrived this morning.  :(I haven't vomited yet.  Frequent high-protein snacks have been helpful today.  I just had a smoothie with yogurt and ground flax seed.  I'll be keeping sliced apples and peanut butter by the bed at night, and hopefully avoid past experiences...  :thumb

Maybe this isn't the right place to say this, since all of you are suffering so much, but in case anyone out there is worried that they're not nauseous, I just want to say that I have two kids already and have never suffered from nausea during pregnancy. While I'm grateful to not have to deal with it, I do wish I had a little reassurance that something was going on in there. I'm 5 weeks, 6 days and the closest thing I have to a pregnancy symptom is that once in awhile I think I smell something. (When I'm not pregnant, I can basically never smell anything at all.)

 

Also for all of you trying to make it through the day, I read something recently that you might think is interesting. On page 23 of Brain Rules for Baby by John Medina it says, "One study, yet to be replicated, looked at children whose mothers suffered from major nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. When the children reached school age, 21 percent scored 130 or more points on a standard IQ test, a level considered gifted. If their mother had no morning sickness, only 7 percent of kids did that well." So as you're trying to keep down your lunch, take comfort in the fact that your kid will probably be smarter than mine. :)

thanks for that :)

 

I admit when I was at 5 1/2 weeks I only had sore breasts and was really nervous about no symptoms and wanted to feel something. Suffice to say a little nausea for 10 min a day would have been more than sufficient. This all day suffering sucks! Time for more tea again (mumbles obscenities).

 

I dont know how you gals do this 5-6 times..and with young children to look after... guess its time to toughen up.

Oy, reading about the refried beans upthread makes me want to vomit.

@ResearchParent lol! That is awesome.

So i read a blog post this summer that tied morning sickness to a magnesium deficiency. It made a lot of sense at the time, but it was obviously bullshit. This is my sickest pregnancy yet.
post #16 of 45

Seasick just a little here, off and on since 4 days before my missed period. Always at night though, never the am....apparently my body was meant to live on the other side of the world. I usually start my period between 9-10pm and I get "evening sickness" while pregnant. Nothing awful yet though, and my ginger people hard candies taste awesome. Anyone tried the motion sickness bracelets? Any success?

grassisgreener I'm also wondering if this baby is a girl as the morning sickness is so bad and all day long, yet with my son I had no morning sickness! Either that or wondering if it is because this time I am older.

 

No food sounds particularly good lately but I force myself to eat decent amounts and regularly as I find it takes the edge off the nausea, if I get hungry then it's worse.

 

After feeling so sick the other night, I tried drinking milk and that seems to help for me, so I make sure to have half a glass of milk before I go to bed now. So far so good at night doing that.:thumb 

 

I couldn't stomach a real breakfast today, I just had half a granola cereal bar with decaf tea. An hour later I felt so sick I made myself eat an egg sandwich, it went off a bit after that. Still feel like I need to vomit though, but never do. Hope it isn't too bad for us all today!!

post #18 of 45

I thought I was in the clear this time, since the nausea started pretty much right away the last pregnancy.

 

And then today, it hit.

 

BLERG.

Dandy Lion, exactly. I read that article when it came out too and spent several months taking cal/mag. I was hopeful, but dammit, no such luck.
