This is my 3rd pregnancy and 7.5 weeks along. I have literally been nauscious since a week after conception. And it's ALL day and night. I've vomitted a few times already. I was nauscious until 16 weeks with my last 2 pregnancies. However, the nausea began around 8 weeks. I don't think I can last much longer!
I started taking vitamin B6 and snacking often. Did anyone ever try Zofran or any other medications? Did they work?
This is so difficult. I actually broke down and cried yesterday, on Father's Day, because I feel so awful all the time.
Thanks in advance.
I tried it a couple of times in my second pregnancy but it didn't really help and gave me horrible wind pain.
It makes me *extremely* constipated. Way more than narcotics. If you take it, I would suggest starting something for constipation at the same time. I used Metamucil which worked as long as I took it religiously.
All the best, it is the most hideous time. I remember it vividly.

I'm sorry you are feeling so bad. I have not taken Zofran, but I did use B6 with Unisom. The regular Unisom can be helpful. I only took it at night because I didn't want to fall asleep during the day, but maybe you could take half.

Wanderslake - I read in a book called "Beautiful Babies" that magnesium deficiencies can be a cause of morning sickness?
I can't verify it to be so (not medically trained) but I've been taking it daily and I haven't had any morning sickness and I'm 7 weeks, that also could be a complete coincidence. It's no guarantee but perhaps it might help?
It sounds like at this point Ginger tea probably wont touch it, sounds pretty severe. Sorry that you are having it so extremely. I'm sending peaceful tummy vibes your way. Also, have you tried getting an organic 100% essential oil of peppermint? Again, would run this by your medical provider but maybe add one drop to 30 oz. of water and it could help to sooth? I hope you feel better very soon!
It sounds like you have Hyperemesis Gravidarum. You can check out this website for more information about it and for support forums: http://www.helpher.org/. I would talk to your doctor about different medications you can take - with my first pregnancy, I took 8 mg of Zofran every day from week 13 until the end of the pregnancy. This pregnancy, I've been taking Zofran since week 6. I was first taking 24 mg a day until about week 17, and am now taking 16 mg a day (and am 21 weeks). Definitely try Zofran if you're still feeling sick - it doesn't take all my nausea away, but it helps a ton. And there are other medications you can take, too. Talk to your doctor!
