Since I've been in my 3rd trimester I've been throwing up, I mentioned to my doctor and he said its normal and to take gravol..I havent taken any but i'm just wondering if anyone else had this problem and what their doctor said.

the only time i was sick with my first one was in the last couple months i could hardly look at food without wanting to puke. When i told the doctor though she didn't seem to concerned said it was normal for that to happen. If your dr. gave you something though maybe you should try it.

I had NO morning sickness or anything, but the last 8 weeks of my pregnancy, I couldn't keep anything down no matter how bland. I vomited up until the day I went into labor and nothing really worked. I tried the declectin(sp?) but had an allergic reaction and vomited even more. I couldn't figure out anything in eight weeks but hopefully you do! Gravol, however..I've heard is a no-go when your pregnant. Hope you feel better!!!!

I vomitted my entire pregnancy....My doctor just told me my body had a hard time adjusting to the baby, but that I was fine. I threw up the night I gave birth to her too! But it all stopped the next day...

I was sick through my whole pregnancy and was dehydrated and in and out of hospital i couldnt keep anything down. They gave me two differernt types of medication, the names of which have just escaped my mind. I was also realy sick through my albour and they gave me some anti-ametics to make me feel less nauseas. As them for some anti nausea pills. I used to take gravol before i got pregant and its really goo dmakes you feel rather tierd tho so you can just sleep through it

I puked my 1st trimester and the 3rd trimester. The dr didn't really say much other than it's normal. So, I guess I just had morning sickness :P

Girl I had it BAD in my last trimester!!! I couldn't eat ANYTHING in the morning and felt crappy the rest of the day. My doctor game me Phenergan. I am in the nursing field so I knew that this could have the side affect of making me a little tired. I took a half one in the morning. Also I started taking my prenatals right before bed. I can't explain why, but it made me feel tons better.

i had some stomach problems when i was prego....not that i threw up alot but i got really bad stomach achs about once or twice a week....my doctor gave me a perscription, i don't remember what it is called but it was for morning sickness, and evertime my stomach would start to hurt i would take one and it would usually go away.....i don't know if its the same thing, but im sure if your doctor recommended it then it would be what you need to be able to eat and get the nutrients that you need....good luck hope it gets better.....
