That would be Zofran that they gave you. It's expensive as hell but it's a wonder drug. Cherish it. Covet it. Do not let any one else use it. It is like gold.

Ginger is a natural anti-nausea product and you can get ginger from a health food store or just drink gingerale. After 12 - 24 hrs. on clear liquids, begin the BRAT diet (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, and Toast) until you get better.(I'm a RN)

Keisha Sorry you had to go through that. I was pregnant with triplets 3 1/2 yrs ago. I couldn't even swallow my own saliva because I was so nauseas. I was on iv for a couple of months, but the Zofran worked wonders because I didn't know about the ginger. Yes, the Zofran like GOLD!!!!

I'd being going straight to the hospital being dehydrated isn't good for you at the best of times but especially more so than when you're pregnant. I had the runs when I was 26wks with my second and was put in hospital for the day to have fluids via IV or call your obstetrican but I wouldn't be mucking around with it and get medical advice ASAP

Sounds like hyperemesis...the wonderful term doctors give to severe morning sickness. I had this with both my kids. With my daughter it was so bad my resting heartrate was 120...because I couldn't even get fluids in. They put me on a prescription called Ondansetron. It's the same stuff they use in operating rooms to keep you from puking from the anesthetics. That worked really well with my first. With my second child I ended up sucking on a lot of peppermint candies. Peppermint actually relaxes the stomach and intestinal muscles so they don't spasm as much...who knew! If you do a quick internet search for peppermint and nausea all kinds of into will come up on it. I now always carry peppermint candies with me since I have lots of issues with stomach upset...pregnant or not. Good luck. I know it can be very hard....speaking from experience.

I ate tons of crystallized ginger last time I had that. It kind of helped. I would call the doctor though, you can get dehydrated really fast.

I usually have Sprite and crackers handy. Hope you feel better. I am 23 weeks pregnant and this is our 2nd child. This pregnancy is different from the last. I am more tired first trimester and now in the 2nd, I am more emotional and easily upset. My stomach was able to feel better with decaf coffee for the 1st trimester, that calmed my upset stomach, but I was able to hold things down so I am not 100% sure that will work for you. Try the crackers and Sprite first.

My doctor recommended half a table of unisom (which was originally a drug for nausea, not sleeping) before bed and 10 mg of vitamin B6. It helped me in the beginning but I ended up getting a prescription for phenergan. love it. makes me sleepy but helps me get through the day.

Call your doc if you're that sick. Ask about Zofran. I take this for chronic nausea due to gastroparesis, but I have been told by nurses that it is also used for nausea during pregnancy. Good luck.

I was prescribed Reglan during both my pregnancies for nausea and it works great! You swallow it like any other pill so there's no nasty taste (which I must imagine is awful when you're already feeling sick to your stomach) and within 15 minutes the nausea is gone. When I'm nauseous the last thing I want anywhere near my mouth/nose is anything ginger so I couldn't tell you whether or not that would work for me! ;0) Hope you're feeling better soon!

Ginger(like ginger cookies), saltines, pumpkin seeds, or at most maternity stores, they have these things called preggy pops. They come in sucker form and wrapped like hard candies. I lived on those with my son because I was always sick. I would definately call your dr on monday. If you haven't been able to keep anything down for over 24 hours they can prescribe you some meds( I had to have them).

Sounds gross but Vinegar (1 tbsp or pickle juice) and crackers. Why do you think pregnant women crave pickles. Bread can help to. It does sound like the flu. I would go in since you are pregnant and not wait to see if you get better.

I haven't read all of the responses yet, so this may have already been suggested. I would definitely try ginger firts (comes in pill form) ..then yes, there are medicines to stop what you are experiencing, but they are generally very spendy even with good insurance. If ginger doesn't help...talk to your doctor.

It actually sounds like you have gastro! Talk to your GP about Maxalon; I'm sure its an over-the-counter drug, meaning you don't need a prescription. I'm actually allergic to it so if you can't take it then ginger tablets. You can get these at a health food store or chemist (again over the counter). Usually suggested for travel sickness but they helped me get over the vomiting within 2 days of my pregnancy blues!

I didn't read all the replies, but I had morning sickness the 1st 3 months! Here's some safe things that helped me through that time: Keep soda crackers by your bed, & when u wake up, eat 4. Then lie down for 1/2 hour before getting up. Don't eat melon! That was the one food with both my pregnancies that came up without any warning! It supposedly doesn't digest the same as other foods! My Dr also told me it was ok to take Gravol, which I did occasionally! If all that fails, bear in mind that it's probably just a stage that will pass. Usually u feel not so good for the 1st 3 months. Great in the middle, & then not as good in the last months (but usually more from just feeling so big by then & not due to "morning sickness") Hope that helped a bit & that maybe you're feeling better all ready by the time I got around to posting this :)

Fresh Ginger in hot water or with tea bag and honey. The ginger is helping the nausea and the honey is optional for taste. Or small sips of ginger ale.

Hi Keshia,
I had really bad morning sickness with all three of my pregnancies.......each one worse than the last.......I found that maxalon or stematel really helped me a lot and is not harmful to the foetus.........I had really big healthy babies.

Why can't you call your doctor he is the first one you should be in touch with to advise you what you can take.

[deleted account]

No medicine works... but ask your health provider for B12 vitamin shots... they work like a miracle in just minutes!!! Believe me you will find immediate relief. Doctors may not even know about the vitamin shot... but midwives will!! The vitamin is PINK in the syringe... pretty cool... looks like Kool-Aid.

Go to a pharmacist. They know better, usually than doctors. I had morning sickness with my daughter...BAD!!! I went to the hospital and they gave me something. I called my brother (pharmacist) and he said I couldn't have it because it was for chemo patients and would hurt the baby. It all turned out well...I survived and so did she! But if you have the flu you have to get taken care of...not jus for you but for the baby.

drink water with ginger pieces inside all day long. ask pharmacist for tablets used for insomnia, something inside them stops the puking, but not the nausea too much. also take homeopathic tablets, helped me...
good luck

Don't take any medicines without your OB Dr. permission but try a clear liquid diet of clear chicken broth, 7-up and plain saltine crackers for the first 24 hr. then if you can hold that down then gradually increase your food intake to to a full liquid diet of 7-up and cream soups, clear jello and crackers thenif you can handle that then move on to solid soft foods no spicy foods for awhile. the cause of morning sickness is your baby is growing a head full of hair and that is usually it. I didn't have morning sickness but I had it at night but not as bad as you have. Everybody is different so there are no 2 pregnancies alike. Let me know if this helps you. My son is now 16 years old. and my only one. Ellen C. Archie, Mo.
