I have had hyperemesis for all 3 of my previous pregnancies, and it got significantly worse each time. The only thing that stopped the vomiting last time was a concoction of zofran, reglan, benadryl, pepcid, and zantac, after a week-long hospital stay. The medications did not work individually, only together. And they only stopped the vomiting, but the nausea was still so debilitating for about 5 months that I could hardly get out of bed because my body was so weak and I would pass out. I am unexpectedly pregnant again, and I'm searching for anything dietary or supplemental that I might be able to do now, before the sickness begins, that might prevent it or lessen it. I'm also interested in any alternative treatments if I do get bad again so that I don't have to be on so many prescriptions. I am also currently nursing my 18 months old.

The only thing I can think of is lots of B6. It helps with nausea. But if yours is that bad, B6 may not help very much.

B6 with half a Unisom taken before bed is the only thing that helped me in my last pregnancy.  I got no relief from Zofran, Reglan, or Phenergan in either of my pregnancies.  The B6/Unisom never made the nausea go away completely, but it was about half as bad as when I didn't take it.

 

Best wishes to you.  I know how awful unrelenting HG is.  :(

Yup, this combo has been a godsend for me.
