Hello, I'm 13 weeks pregnant & I have severe all day sickness that is causing me to be depressed, cry a lot, and just feel miserable. I've literally been on Reglan, B6 , Zofran, and Phenogren. Nothing helps. I've lost 19 pounds in 3 months because I can't keep ANY food or drinks down.. I'm trying to stay possitive but throwing up all day & feeling overly nausuas doesn't seem to have a possitive affect :( just need any advice? my husband helps me so much & tries everything he can. This is our first child, and I'm 21 years old.

Ok if you haven't yet ask your doc for anti nausea meds. Try taking them at night along with your prenatals to see if that helps. Also you can try sucking on a lemon or sipping peppermint tea both were soothing to me. I just came out of my nausea phase at 16 weeks.



Hope this is helpful. Good luck

Through an organic herbal tea supplement no to morning sickness tea I managed my nausea and vomiting that was driving me nuts.

I find that if I eat a touch of salt it will sometimes stop the queasiness (my bp is 98/70!). I have been in the hospital twice now needing IV's, and I even ripped my throat once. I am now on zofran and if I take it when I feel queasy it will stop me from getting sick. I am now 18 weeks and finally went 4 days without getting sick. good luck and I hope that something will work 4 u.

I definitely feel your pain as I had the same with my first pregnancy and it only got better in the 7th mth but my son was born 5 Wks early so I didn't have much of the pregnancy where I wasn't sick. I was extremely sensitive to smells. It sounds like you have tried lots of mess to reduce the nausea but have you tried Maxalon? Not sure of spelling but if you take it 15-30mins before a meal it does help. Stress is a big factor I believe as well as my second pregnancy I have complications but I'm not as stressed and feel this one has been easier. Have you tried weak ginger or peppermint tea? Eating first thing in the morning (even in bed) then continue small regular meals throughout the day? Salty biscuits or spreads (marmite or vegemite) on dry toast? even caramelised ginger were my godsend. Do try to eat and drink as being sick with nothing in your stomach is worse and you will become dehydrated requiring a drip in hospital if severe. I do hope that your morning (all day) sickness eases up for you and you get to enjoy the remainder of your pregnancy.

I have been where you are at with my first pregnancy. What I did was stay away from anything that made me sick, which for me was mostly everything and everybody.. toothpaste, deodrant, our bathroom (smelled like wet water to me, I can't explain it), even pregnancy lotions butters and creams made me sick (the non scented ones). But even doing that I still was very sick. I watched what I ate on the "beware of eating this if you are pregnant list," but still I was weak and sick from month 2-5. I had no problems in month 1.

Later I found out that stress was a big problem, I had wayy to much of a schedule going on, that I could not keep up with, I was overweight, this didn't help and I had developed preecplamsia (my blood pressure went wayy up and then wayy down). I was actually put on bed rest for the last 3 months of my pregnancy, which I should have been put on bed rest from month 5-10. Anyways..

My Dr. never gave me anything for the sickness...Looking back now, I still don't know what I would do different if I was sick during this pregnancy (I'm 35 weeks preg with my 2nd). I did drink herbal tea, (the approved herbals) but still no relief. My nausea relief came during month 5, and then my other problems started.

Talk with your Dr, and evaluate your surroundings, food, work environment, general health, and try safe things to see what may get you some relief.

Hang in there.

Girl your feeling are quite normal. This pregnancy is my fourth and hardest I too feel like whoo this is a lot for a baby. Hopefully things will get better for you. But remember this, if for any reason you feel like the OB you have is not giving you the care you need, CHANGE! It is in your power and right to have a physician that listens and understands your needs and helps you through this delicate time. Take care and hang in there.

I've been on 5 different meds & they don't have anymore that's safe to take in my 2nd trimester "/ I've been on Chlorpol, Regland, Zofran, Phenegren & one more but I can even pronounce it let alone spell it "/ I've been getting so upset about puking that I feel negative towards pregnancy & I don't like that because my baby means the world :(
