12 Zofran tablets. I couldn't take it anymore and broke down and called the doctor's office. I feel like such a baby. This is my 8th pregnancy and I have never had to take anything for the nausea, even though it's been bad before. I'm kind of over the guilt though. I didn't ask for twins. Well, OK I did, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">, but I didn't know it meant a billion times the sickness and I'm tired of being up at 3 AM crying because I'm so sick I can't sleep. I started vomiting big time this week as well, and I've just had it.<br><br>
I'm saving them for when I feel desperate though. My insurance will only let me get 12 at a time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">

Get one of those pill-splitter thingies and cut them in half...then see if that much helps! That worked for me<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I wonder if my midwife can prescribe this. I am beyond unhappy about being so sick. I had diahrea all day too. I can't hardly get my cup of soup down. Hopefully, I can go to bed soon.

If you take them make sure to do something for the constipation because it is BAD. You need some serious measures to counter act it because Zofran will bring your bowels to a hault. Sorry if that's too graphic but I wish someone had warned me in my first pregnancy.

Good for you! We always expect to sacrifice a little, but sometimes it's too much! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Funny Face is right...if you take them, load up on the fiber, big time! That's the only downside to Zofran that I've found...other than the constipation, its one of the best inventions ever. LOL
