I spend days on end feeling sick. I thought I was getting better....I had like four days of feeling great...thought the worst was behind me. Then Sunday night I was fiercely vomiting....I couldn't stop. I wanted to go the hospital. Since then I have been nauseous all the time and nothing helps...Is this gonna last for the next 30 weeks?

Was in the same boat and tried all these things you mentioned. The last thing which worked was No To Morning Sickness Tea.

I was like this for both my pregnancies. My first daughter I lost 25 pounds and was on zofran orally the whole nine months. My second daughter I only lost 20 pounds but I was on a zofran pump. It was a machine that I had to inject a tiny cathiter in my leg every three days and it would give me zofran thru i tube kind of like an iv or if you have ever seen a diabetic pump. It worked. Now I have decided not to have any more children because I can not go thru that agian. It is so much worst than actually going thru labor. Good Luck. Contact me if you have any questions. I know what hell you are going thru!!

So my sickness wasn't as bad as yours sounds but I know once I got put on iron supplements it got worse, so be careful with the flinstones and iron. You have to eat at the same time as you take iron to help with absorption. I also noticed on the days I slept in (I work at five in the morning on weekdays) it was much better, but on the days I woke up early....awful. So if you have the option sleep later in the morning, try that. Mine cleared up at 12 weeks on the nose but I did vomit and couldn't keep food down the day I gave birth. Good luck!

Hello,

I was the same way when I was pregnant, I even had to go to the hospital for dehydration! They gave me a prescription called "Zofran" which worked really well, it's not harmful to the baby and it really helps with the nausea. Good luck and I hope this helps!

I was sick right up until delivery with my daughter, was leaned over the side of the bed throwing up while trying to push. The only thing that helped with it at all was trying to eat really bland food (mashed potatoes, crackers, etc), and sometimes citrus juice (OJ, five alive peach, etc) helped.

You can maybe also try a liquid vitamin. I know of a good one that at least, you can get a vitamin without trying to have to swallow one and choke it down. Let me know if you would like more info. I know they don't sell them in stores but you can order it and it is pretty inexpensive and they are a great quality. I hope that helps! I'm pregnant right now (with my fifth) and it was hard to take vitamins in the begining but somehow I managed to get it down before I went to the liquid ones!

So sorry...you probably don't want to hear this, but I threw up from 11 weeks up until delivery. The worst was from 11-18 weeks, though...I did feel markedly better after that. I still hurled 2-3 times a day, but I didn't really feel nauseous...it was just a sudden, quick blahhh, and then I felt fine. What helped me most during that rough spot was slupees...LIVED on them for 10 weeks, & got to be on a first name basis with the people at 7-11. Watermelon & grapes were good too. Could not eat veggies, salad or chicken the entire pregnancy. Bottom line, you'll need to find what works for you at any given time, and know that it will probably change in 2 weeks time! Good luck!

Eat small, frequent meals -- whole grains really helped me to feel better. Lemon water (just the juice of 1/2 lemon in about 16 oz. water) helps nausea too. Ginger tea, or crystallized ginger candy can help. Sea-bands help some. Peppermint candy or essential oil can help. Don't eat any processed food (think canned soup -- I felt lots worse when I ate that, than something not processed). Don't eat anything that sounds bad to you for any reason, and eat whatever you want (even if it seems weird). The worst is usually 7 - 10 weeks or so and then nausea is better by 12 -14 weeks in most women.

I know its worth it..I have 3 sons...They are so wonderful. i would never trade them for the world. I just have never been this sick before...Its unnerving...Really upsetting I just want to feel good. I don't even really feel pregnant yet. At almost 10 weeks I guess I won't But this is killing me...I can't even stomach chicken noodle soup

The only thing that helped me was never letting my stomach be completely empty. I ate a few crackers every couple of hours. I could only handle bland carbs, like mashed potatoes or bagels. If you can, try going to sleep really early, so you can sleep through some of the nausea.

I completely feel your pain. I felt sea sick all day long until about 20 weeks. For most, it usually gets better by 14 weeks. It truly is worth it once the baby comes out! Good luck!

My Ob took me off my vitamins 2 weeks ago and said not to take them again until the nauseousness let up. They gave me something that I took for a few days and then after they were gone I felt better then It just started again....I just want to eat again...I am so hungry and I know I am starting to fight dehydration

Ask your OB, but like myself, some women just CANNOT take Prenatal Vitamins due to them making them nauseas. There are SOME meds that your OB can perscribe, as I had some perscribed with my first pregnancy to control the nausea and vomiting, but the downside is you will sleep A LOT. It doesn't really help the sickness, just causes you to sleep through it all.



With my second baby, I was told to take Flinstones Vitamins with IRON! They worked great and soothed my tummy. I told another girlfriend about them and they helped her as well. As I said, ask your OB... I hope this helps! :)
