Zofran would be perfectly fine to use in labor. they can give it IV and it works more effectively that way too. I'm still on it now (32 weeks) and expect to be on it through delivery.

Belia, I don't think so, it just depends on the individual.

I didn't throw up my whole pregnancy but once in labor I puked and puked and puked and puked and they didn't want me to have anything to drink (but I smuggled in Gatorade anyway, which didn't help because I, y/k, puked ) and finally they gave me an IV of something and all puking stopped immediately. It was SUCH a relief!!! Unfortunately, I don't remember what it was, but I told the nurse before getting it that I was prone to panic/anxiety and was med-phobic and she said, "oh, I'm glad you told me, I'll give you xyz instead of abc" so maybe that's something worth mentioning if you go the med route, because whatever I got gave me no side effects or spaciness or whatever.

I'm going to be asking my doctor if I can take Zofran before delivery/epidural because I tend to react with violent vomiting with just about any anesthesia. I have been on it for excessive vomitting already and doesn't have much of any side effects.

Oh my God, it's my worst nightmare come true! I have a severe throwingup phobia....... I was thankful to not have morning sickness.. But now here's my question, for you guys who experienced this during labor, did you also have bad morning sickness in the beginning? I'm wondering if it has a lot to do with the person's stomach or if it's something completely different..

For me, it was something different. I didn't have any M/S with my dd and threw up constantly for my very, very long labor. And this was all at a birth center so it wasn't in relation to medication. We did wind up being transferred to a hospital though. I think mine was a pain reaction since it only happened during contractions and a couple times if I focused really, really, really hard I didn't throw up.

I am doing a lot of things different this time. I am doing a homebirth and will be doing hypnobirthing and trying to take away the focus on pain and have a pain free birth. I will also have lemons and peppermint there like others suggested and I may have some dried Kelp which really helped one of my friends. My first labor was 56 hours so at this point a 24 hour labor sounds like pure bliss.

Oh GOSH.. that sounds awful.. Best of luck with your homebirth, that is what I want as well As far as your sickness goes, they never really concluded what triggered it? I have never understood how/why pain causes that reaction in some people..
