Last night I was on the bathroom floor about to throw up and wishing I was dead. I managed to get one of the Zofron down (and I prayed I wouldn't throw it back up) and within about 10 minutes I felt much better. Within and hour I was able to snack and drink some tea. I am so grateful for this medication. I just hope it doesn't hurt the baby (yes, I'll say that ten thousand times throughout my pregnancy. LOL).

I know I feel more sick when I'm tired so maybe that's the bedtime/m/s link?

I can totally understand the worries. When I was on it during my last pregnancy, they hadn't studied it for use during pregnancy. Just go reference Dr. Hale's book... maybe tape the excerpt for Zofran on your perscription bottle. (I linked to it earlier in this looong thread... maybe we're ready for a new thread DEALING WITH MORNING SICKNESS since this one was more about starting treatment before it hit).

VeganF, I hope you get some GOOD relief.

Barely keeping water down today. I broke down and called my midwife just to see if she or any of her fellow midwives have any tricks up their sleeves I haven't tried yet. And she said not to hesitate to have my primary care doctor refer me for IV fluids if necessary. She doesn't like Zofran, but agrees that if someone goes a few days consuming nothing, then it's handy to have some just to get a break to get some liquid and nutrients into the body. So we'll see how the rest of the weekend goes and I'll decide whether to go see my doctor next week.

It doesn't even seem to matter when I go to bed...I thought maybe it was tiredness as the evening wore on but it's like my body knows I'm headed to bed soon and starts amping up the m/s!
I feel this way too. I'm a little queasy here and there throughout the day but right before bed? UGH. My whole torso burns from the heartburn/gas and I can only get relief from laying with my head flat on the couch and butt up in air, knees under me. Imagine my husband's face coming home to me in that position after a long day at work :

Just wanted to say that I began taking the milk thistle twice daily for 3 months prior to ttc and began taking it 3 times a day when pregnancy was confirmed at 10dpo. Morning sickness began at 6 weeks and had worsened to the point of not keeping anything down by 7 weeks.

So I guess the milk thistle by itself was not enough to prevent the severe n/v for me.

I've also tried many of the other suggested remedies and they just don't do anything for me.


I was really hoping this was going to work this time, darn it!
