Severe "morning sickness" throughout the day and night... I am 8 weeks pregnant and have been having insanely severe sickness throughout the day. I do alright as long as I stay in bed, but I have had to miss 3 weeks of work already! I'm starting to get a little depressed from the frustration of having to stay home alone all day, and be in bed. When I try to get up and do something active, I feel extremely nauseated, and in most cases vomit. I can only eat very small, bland meals a few times a day, and almost any odor triggers vomiting as well. I can't imagine going through even a few more weeks of this. I am normally an extremely active and social person, so this drastic change has been a very difficult one for me. I went in to get blood work today, so hopefully they can figure what is going on. My doctor gave me phenergan to take every 6 hours. I was trying to avoid taking any prescription meds, but the doctor told me that it is more dangerous to continue vomiting than to take the meds. I am still apprehensive about taking them, but at the same time, I want to be able to function on a somewhat normal basis. Most of the tricks people have told me to try haven't done anything for me. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
