This is my first pregnancy. I am around 8 weeks pregnant and have 24/7 sickness. I am down 8 lbs in 2 weeks. I cannot take more than 3 sips of any beverage or out it comes. I can eat ice cubes, even tho its horrible for your teeth, and have managed a lime Popsicle. I know everyone will say saltines or potato chips, but I cannot stand the thought of them or even the crinkley wrapper sound. I've tried soups hot and cold. Ginger root and ginger tea. I can sometimes deal with dry toast but even that has a nasty scent that is hard for me to get by. Pretty much the only thing I can keep down is a little fruit. Meaning like half an apple, a few spoonfuls of applesauce, a couple orange slices, 1/4 of a banana, or some watermelon (not all at once).Veggies and meats are out of the question. I did crave steak so we ordered one and I managed half of that down but then it was straight to bed with a horrible stomach ache. I stopped taking my prenatals because my mom and sister both had trouble with theirs while pregnant. I had no problems with them before. My OB prescribed me Zofran and it works off and on. It stops the nausea until I start eating, then it's more torture time. My husband is very worried about me, and I'm struggling to get through the day out of bed.
