I understand, I did know. I hesitated putting it in the thread, but I figured it might help somebody.

I never tried that, though dh suggested it. Is that alcoholic?

What are the risks with Zofran? I was prescribed it once with my last pgcy when I got the flu around 4 months pg and that along with morning sickness was getting pretty seriously dangerous. It worked like magic. I do have some left over...

Ginger beer isn't alcoholic, it's just "brewed" so maybe prepared like a beer?

The acupuncture seemed to help me. I still feel nauseous some of the time, but it is less severe. I hope you find something that helps!

Oh man, I think it hit me today for the first time. I woke up at 6:30 a.m. super nauseated and have been fighting a weird slightly hungry yet pretty barfy feeling ever since.

Then again maybe I was just nervous because today was my first u/s. Everything went well, heart beating and everything! (Today I am 6w0d)

Yeah Alison! Glad to hear you heard that little heatbeat!! :

Okay... I am already getting heartburn sickly hungry feelings and I am only 4 1/2 weeks. I am a little worried as I was extremely sick with my last baby... I remember that kicked in around 6 weeks with him.

My doctor has already told me that he would give me Zofran if I need it... I hope it works as good as some claim!!

Yesterday morning and this morning, I had some strong waves of nausea. No actual barfing yet, and it stops when I get something in my stomach. I was 6 weeks yesterday.

I feel you

I just feel woozy all day--no actual throwing up. The only thing that seems to help is eating, but nothing sounds appetizing. I can't handle eating anything except cheese, yogurt, and meat. Not exactly a balanced diet. Anything sweet at all (fruit) makes be want to ....you know. So I have been eating tiny cheese wheels, yogurt (cow and goat milk to mix it up) and meat, pretty much all day. I am afraid that I may have already gained 5 pounds!

I've just had a tiny bit of Nausea last night and this morning for the first time. It's still so mild that I'm not sure if I'm imagining it or not. Despite the fact that I'll probably regret this eventually, I actually find it reassuring. I'm paying attention to this thread for possible remedies, just incase it gets bad. So far the Honey or Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar appeal to me the most.

Sounds like you're craving the protein! I'd go with it.

Unfortunately, I seem to desiring starches as usual... I bet my english muffins and (loaded) baked potatoes will gain me more weight than your protein.

someone else had asked a bit earlier and I was also curious about the side effects / safety of zofran . . .
post #31 of 32
My doctor says that Zofran is totally safe for pregnant moms. He says they actually give Zofran to babies undergoing chemo treatment (sad to even thing about!!) too. I am going to try to avoid it if I can at least until 8 weeks, but if it gets so bad that i can't work, I won't have a choice. I have to work!!

6 weeks tomorrow and the nausea hit me pretty bad last night (and continued into today). No puking yet though (but I don't tend to throw up much/often in general). Going to try the honey/vinegar if I can get a chance to buy apple cider vinegar later. And maybe I'll pick up some ginger beer too.
