Hi there, I'm new here. I am almost 9 weeks pregnant and for the past 4 weeks I have been so nauseous that standing up and walking around isn't even an option half the time. I've been pregnant before, though I've miscarried all of them, but still never had nausea this bad. I throw up sometimes, but not often. EVERYTHING seems to make me sick (hot/warm foods, meats, milk, sugary foods, salty foods, minty stuff, smells of all sorts, even good ones like my husbands body wash- which smells like peanut butter to me now for some reason, hot air from my heater in the car, being in the shower, and even just drinking water makes me throw up sometimes, etc....) I am miserable all the time. I can't sleep through the night because I wake up from the nausea 6 or 7 times. I've tried ginger ale and saltine crackers and even pure fresh ginger root. The doctors put me on high doses of vitamin B6 and unisom and I think it's called phenomine or something, but they rarely work and even when they do, I just sleep through the nausea and wake up just as sick 4-6 hours later. I don't have a lot of cravings, but when I do, I have to eat them within 10 minutes or I can't stomach them. And something that soothes my queezies one day makes me puke the next day. Is it completely insane to feel this horrible during your first trimester?? Am I the only one with it this bad??
