Sorry you're not feeling well. I'm hypoglycemic, too. I've found sugar isn't helpful to me at all, because the increase in blood sugar doesn't last. I do a lot better with complex carbs (whole grains and veggies) and lots of protein. I have found that if I'm getting enough protein, I don't feel nearly as sick. When I'm eating mostly starchy/simple carbs I feel a lot worse.

Also, nibbling all day works much better for me than trying to maintain regular mealtimes.

I hope you feel better soon!

It will get better.
I once did not feel nauseous for 2 days in a row and it really worried me at that point - I even posted here and asked. Since then, the pain of vomiting is always accompanied with a bit of comfort as well. But I know how annoying it can get - I just can't stand the queasiness and the bitter taste anymore.

Until my OB gave me zofram last week I was sick nearly every minute of every day. It was awful. The zofram is a godsend; if you don't mind medications I would get some ASAP.

It's also really helped me to do the grazing thing. I can't eat too much at one sitting, but I also can't let myself get hungry cuz that's when I feel the sickest.

Hopefully just a few more weeks of this!!!

Aww, mama! It doesn't last forever! And it's totally worth it in the end! I have been feeling sick all the time too, but today I haven't really had it at all, so I'm thinking it's going away (I'm 11 weeks now) Don't worry, it gets better.

I know how you feel. I haven't had ms in the normal sense, as in I haven't actually been sick, but I have this uneasy feeling in my stomach that starts late in the morning and lasts the rest of the day. It feels like I'm hungry, but if I take a few bites of something then I get a stomach ache like I've eaten too much. My prenatals make it worse, too. I'm starting to do the grazing thing and it does help a bit. Hopefully it will ease up soon. Hang in there!

thank goodness for zofran ODT!!! I practically lived on it my last two pregnancies. look out though, it can cause nasty constipation in some folks. (don't ask my how I know; my bottom still hurts). The brand is better than the generic if you can get your hands on it. It dissolves to a liquid you barely have to swallow whereas the generic dissolves to a powder that I can gag on if I'm having a really bad day.

And I do have to graze. protein protein protein

I've had two weeks of it too, and it's not fun. I'll feel hungry, but the idea of eating and then actually eating makes me feel worse. Blah, I can't wait for it to pass. It's especially hard to be around food...and DH and I run a restaurant.


ETA: what kinds of food are you all eating for protein? I can't bear eggs or any meat, what else should I try?
