Five times a day is a lot. I am usually doing it twice a day, but I feel crappy all day whether Im throwing up or not.
Ive been able to keep food down enough that Im not losing weight.
Ive got bloating/gas (not the good kind that at least escapes), which only makes the nausia worse!
I live in bed, thankfully I am not working so thats one less thing to have to worry about. My dad who is retired has been taking care of my son. They are very close, my son considers him "dad" rather than grandfather, so we are very lucky to have him.
I sleep a lot, and it's also the only time I dont feel sick, it sucks big time.
Ive been taking antacids, gasex, and ginger capsules (not fun if it comes up), as well as progestrone capsules/cream.
I am now 9 weeks, I know the m/s went to about 2nd trimester w/my son maybe a bit less.
I have actually had a couple of good days this past week or so, so Im hoping that's a sign of the beginning of the end of this m/s.
I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.
Oh, I wanted to add that phenergan is another typical RX anti-nausia med that many dr's RX, it did not seem to help me much and it flared up my restless legs I get w/certain meds.
There's at least another med they offer for the M/S but getting to see a MD dr for does not always help =/
I live in NM and here if you are pregnant you automatically get emergency medicaid, you go in and apply at a clinic and they see you that same day.
You have till you have the baby and then you have to reapply, but this happened automatically for me I think.
It's truly a saving grace, Caden and I have had insurance ever since, I have to renew it via phone once a year.
HSing mom to Caden 02/17/03 , and suddenly expecting #2 due 01/11
