expecting and super sick

Whitney - posted on 08/14/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )





I am about 12 weeks along, and so sick I can't see straight, I am on new meds but had to quit my job. I am living in the country with my husband, and have only been here about a year. I am having a really hard time finding mommy/prenatal groups to connect with. Any advice?

If you are vomiting everything, you may need to be hospitalized. Hyperemesis Gravidarum is a serious condition. Most often related to multiples but can affect any pregnant mother. Keep your doctor aware of your condition. To help; eat a few saltines in bed before you rise in the AM, have a light snack of graham crackers and 7up at bedtime too. Eat what is appealing, and don't worry about the rest. If you cannot choke you PNV down, get folic acid 1 mg at the pharmacy, until you can stomach the regular PNV. Mints, really strong peppermint, can help a lot (like altoids). Brushing your teeth often. If you live in the US you cannot be fired for conditions related to pregnancy, so you may wan t to request a FMLA instead.
