Anyone else having an over-abundance of saliva? I think I remember this happening with my last pregnancy as well. Most of the time it's just a bit irritating, but when my m/s is really bad it makes me feel even sicker.

Ugh. I really feel for you. I have been wanting to post to your M/S thread but have been TOO SICK to do that. I am feeling a little better now. There is a specific homeopathic remedy that corresponds to nausea made worse due to excessive salivation.

Here I copied this from a website:

Ipecacuanha – this is the number one homeopathic remedy for morning sickness. It is characterised by continuous nausea, sometimes accompanied by vomiting. The tongue is clean and the mouth does not have any odd tastes. There may be a lot of saliva produced.

Symphoricarpus – this is another commonly prescribed remedy in morning sickness. Here the nausea is very strong, it is made worse by food and any sort of motion. The nausea often leads to vomiting (more so than in Ipecac.) and has bitter tastes in the mouth. There might also be an accompanying constipation.

Sepia – this remedy is indicated if the person has a lot of tiredness and the morning sickness is made better by eating or exercise. The person also has a sensitivity to smells that can make the nausea worse.

Gossypium or Cocculus might be indicated if the person feels like they have constant motion sickness.

These descriptions are pretty correct to me. Homeopathy, I believe, is keeping me from constantly vomiting. I was so sick with DS#1, and now just very nauseous with occasional vomiting. I am taking acupunture, which helps a lot, too. I have another appt this afternoon which I hope will eliminate the M/S altogether. I am extremely low-funtioning. Being onthe computer is a first in several days.

I also want to note that lachesis can also be indicated when there is a lot of saliva. Nux vomica is good if you are very easily angered. Pulsatilla if you are better going outside and like a lot of sympathy. Also if you are very emotional and feel like crying.

I hope you are feeling better!

Jean, happy HS mom to Peter (5), Daniel (9) and Lucie (2) and also someone new... baby.gif
