I thought Unisom was a sleep aid. I could be wrong, but i'm not sure. I thought about upping my b6, but my prenatals have like 1250% daily value of b6 already, so I figured that wouldn't work.
I have heard of marijuana. My husband brings it up constantly. Personally, I have never been a fan because when I did try it in my teen age years it made me nauseated, so I figured it wouldn't do much good anyway, and the smell of it isn't that appetizing either.
I have gotten on Zofran, I called my MW and she was conveniently at lunch with the OB I go to for all my well woman stuff, and she wrote me a prescription then, so I feel much better. I have still thrown up, but I am able to keep food and water down and such. So it's a definite plus, I'm 10 weeks, so this should hopefully only last a few more weeks.
Thanks for all y'all's support!
Just a thought:
I confess that when Zofran made me feel very agitated and anxious, marijuana was a dream come true. It helped with the nausea and even had me excited to eat again! It is a truly a medicinal herb, if it is used responsibly.
I am so tired of it. I've done, ginger, lavendar, high protein, acupressure sea bands non stop, acupuncture every week, eating early, eating small, eating frequently, resting, relaxation, puking, deep breathing, eating what I feel "I'm in the mood for", no greasy foods, no carbonation, etc, etc, etc.
Nothing works, and I feel terrible!!!! I puke at least 4 times a day. I've lost about 10 lbs and I'm only 9 weeks pregnant, Anything I eat, I see again, except for an egg this morning, a banana I shared with my 18 MO, and.....well, that's it.
My hub works M-F and he can't take off to cover for me, he did take off one week already and that was wonderful, but I still puked a lot. My house is a mess, I have laundry from a week ago, waiting to be folded, my kitchen gets to be horrible, as in, stinky, dishes everywhere, more dirty dishes than food, pots and pans on stove with old food. Once I get enough energy to clean it, I do, and then I go puke, and am done for the rest of the day. I'm not talking major clean, just doing the dishes and wiping the counter clean.
Last preg, I was said to have HG, and I was on Zofran, and it did help, I still felt crappy, but I didn't puke near as much. I like to think I can make it till this is over without it, as I don't want to use any meds, but I don't see me doing this another 3 weeks at least. Last time it wasn't till 6 mo that is stopped.
I know, I know, take it one day at a time, I'm taking it one hour at a time. I've already made my son switch from one 2 hr nap to two 1.5 hr naps a day so I can rest, and hubby gets up with him at night, and takes over when he gets home.
Someone tell me you are going through the same thing!!! I feel so alone, I hardly leave the house, and the thought of it is just not worth running to the bathroom again.
