I am 6w4d and I got nothing.  Freaks me out because I have miscarried once and I also didn't have any m/s right around 8 weeks.  I am just holding my breath here.

Oh man, thanks for the scare. Lol...
I'm sorry about your loss. Hopefully this time we'll both have a healthy pregnancy.

Sent DH to the pharmacy for some unisom today, already had a B6. Hoping the unisom would also make me sleepy, so far, not much, but I'm off to bed because it's late. Seriously had that bad reaction to the smell of everything I cooked today. So yay for doxylamine succinate and B6, hoping it gets me through this part.

Oh I am sorry. I didn't mean to get you more worried. I wish you the best and hopefully we will both be complaining of ms soon. smile.gif With my 2 sons, I was definately puking often and I had a headache the whole 9 months. But I don't know when it started.

Goingonfour, I find I'm tired the first few mornings after I take it and then okish...

Gah TMI Alert...

I threw up this afternoon and afterwards my nose was stuffy... So I blew it and vomit came out my nose greensad.gif

And I can't shake the pukey feeling ever since. I hope this doesn't get worse. I'm really not handling this well this time. Sleeping, feeling I'll and trying to find stuff that looks somewhat appetizing is pretty much my life. I'm either super cold all the time or super hot. Being hot or moving to fast makes me feel super sick. So I have to move slow, always have some sort of drink in my hand and not raise my anxiety level at all for me not to feel gross. My poor kids greensad.gif my husband is trying his best but he's been in a weird mood for months (I think he's slightly depressed) and everything is just "off" greensad.gif I just don't want to be sick anymore. I'm thankful for the symptoms and healthy pregnancy yes but everything is just really taking a toll on me. I haven't even thrown up that much, it's just the general feeling. It's going to be a looooong 7 months if this doesn't subside! And going to DL is going to royally suck! I was super throwy uppy with the last two but I didn't feel this gross except for the odd day here an there.

I forgot to say that I was taking Maca root a few months before I got pregnant and have continued to take it and since it is a hormone balancer, I am wondering if that is possibly a reason I am not feeling sick. I feel mostly like my appetite is low or maybe there is something I want but I can't have it for some reason, so nothing seems good, so I don't eat and then feel sick. Which normally, I eat even when I am not hungry. Just crossing my fingers my little bean is healthy.

I was feeling super sick up until a few days ago, I threw up twice and had 24/7 nausea.  Now it seems a lot less, I get waves every now and then.  This is making me nervous.  I'll be 8 weeks tomorrow.  I m/c a few years ago right around 8 weeks and lost all my symptoms, but didn't start spotting until 11 weeks.  So this is such a sensitive time for me.

 

Anyone else feel like their symptoms are lessening?

post #88 of 240

Mine are lessening as of this morning, when I felt it coming on hard-style, and quickly took 1/2 of a Unisom tablet (doxylamine succinate) and a 50 mg vit. B6, and would you believe it, I not only cooked food for the kids, but myself, and ATE two fried eggs with hamburger! And it was fine! This is epic, for me! I think my sickness is getting really bad, but I didn't wait to see just how bad before acting, this time. This really worked for me last pregnancy, too.

 

Taking half a Unisom in the morning, and half in the evening, along with the B6, doesn't make me tired, because it's not a whole Unisom at a time. And it's sooo helpful. Thank goodness, because the sickness was getting so bad even though I wasn't throwing up, I was feeling like seasick all the time.

 

Hooray for a fairly normal morning, because I really need to be functional and get some things done.

They are lessening, sometimes, and I feel ok about it. I know there is the rare case where one sees a heartbeat and goes on to miscarry, but it is rare. I've seen these two babies heartbeats. I'm not wishing to feel sick anymore. I threw up yesterday afternoon after feeling fine all day. I thought I was hungry, ate, and puked. I didn't even really feel yucky, just couldn't hold it down. For a second this morning, I had a wave. It passed really fast and I feel great right now, even after taking my supplements. This may be my last pregnancy and damn if I'm going to feel bad about feeling good. wink1.gif

Daisy, that sounds exactly how I seem to feel in the early weeks. The low appetite, occasional feeling of wanting something but it was never anything that we actually had on hand, and then feeling worse because of not eating, was what came right before I started getting definitely sick, even though I didn't throw up, felt like motion sick constantly, most of the day. Fingers crossed for you too, but from what you're describing, it sounds like you have plenty of symtoms for a healthy pregnancy! <3

I know it's insane to want to feel sick, and I really was super miserable and complaining to dh all the time.  With my m/c I had a previous ultrasound that showed a perfectly healthy heartbeat, so it was really traumatizing for me.  We saw a heartbeat this time too.  I did have a healthy baby since the m/c, but it just scars you in a way.  I want to feel ok about the symptoms easing up, but I'm not there at the moment.

Thanks for your encouraging words goingonfour. I feel like I am partly imagining things smile.gif Maybe next week. My sister-in-law said she didn't get sick until 9 weeks. And then it was terrible. smile.gif I hope you feel better real soon.

I've been nauseous since week 3, which is really crazy. Just hit week 10 today and it was a good day. The past week has had good days and bad days, and I'm getting into a habit of cooking again, and definitely eating more. I'm so ready for the morning sickness to go away!! 7 weeks is my limit I think, I can't handle constant nausea anymore.

Im at 8 weeks and it's not getting any better, i think it is getting worse in the evenings. I am going to try adding another dose of meds at lunchtime. Right now, I'm only taking them before bed.

Good or bad news to you ladies, depending, but looking back in my diaries over how I felt with each of my last 3 kids, it looks like my sickness really took off around 7-8 weeks, and was still in full force at 11-12 weeks. #3 was when I discovered the Canadian go-to prescription of doxylamine succinate (ingredient in Unisom, which like most pharmaceuticals, is "for" whichever of the effects they want to brand and market it as... it's an anti-nausea drug rebranded in the US as a sleep aide, but in my experience, doesn't cause as much drowsiness as the antihistamine diphenhydramine HCl, aka Benadryl... interesting because both are also antihistamines. See how a drug can be any of a number of things it does, and what they call it just depends on which effect they want to market?) and Vitamin B6/

 

I had long talks with several pharmacists, had done my research, knew that it had a longstanding safe track record for use in pregnancy in Canada, and the rest is history: I have an antinausea combination that works well for me even though I am not Canadian (haha) that I can buy, and it's getting me through this time. I feel fine when I first wake up, but within moments of starting to make breakfast, the smells get to me and I start feeling really awful. I take half a unisom (made sure it had no other ingredients) and B6, and even though smells still are nasty, I can get through the morning, without feeling sleepy, or feeling miserably nauseous.

 

But yes, with #3, the sickness even followed me past the first trimester. No fun!

If it makes you feel better, "evening sickness" is just as common as "morning sickness" and "all day sickness" though most of the time, there is at least one part of the day which isn't as bad. Hugs!

True! The reason for the rebranding was a removal from the US market when the FDA thought there was a link between doxylamine use for morning sickness and cleft palate. After the removal, it became clear that it was simply a coincidence but people were scared to take it for morning sickness again in the US....so they decided "hey, this could work for sleep". What's funny is that the FDA doesn't recognize it as a sleep aid (it's true, it doesn't work as well as diphenhydramine), but allows it to stay on the shelf. So convoluted I tell you!

I must admit, I am feeling a little... What's the right word? Bitter? Jealous? Discouraged? At all the "Im starting to feel better" posts swirling around our group. I feel happy for anyone who is feeling better but I really want to feel better too. But, I don't. This lasted 9 months for me both of my last 2 pregnancies. Fortunately, this time is better than before, but it is still bad. I am hoping that maybe, just maybe, by the second trimester I will start to feel a little better.

I'm sorry....
Have you tried taking vitamin B complex? And a very good prenatal vitamin? I guess it's different for everyone.

I started taking prenatal a 4 months before I got pg and occasionally took vitamin b. I'm currently 7 weeks and no sign of MS and that worries me a bit. I can actually hear a faint heartbeat on my doppler so I know something is in there. 😄
post #100 of 240

Uggg its so frustrating I know! The only thing that seems to have helped me over last few days is eating a bunch of mini meals with a protein each time. Triscuts with string cheese or cottage cheese, and apple with peanut butter, brown rice cake with peanut butter, etc. Since my appetite was so much better yesterday I attempted a pizza and it didn't sit well at all. I got really nauseated and gaggy from the grease I think.
