Miranda - posted on 03/24/2009 ( 20 moms have responded )




Lately I have been feeling sick, like all day, not just in the morning. its lasted for like 5 days now, but i never throw up i just feel like im going to all the time! I have to force myself to eat, which makes me feel better, but only for like an hour... then i feel sick again! Is there something i can do about this... or is it something i just have to deal with??

Maybe try some ginger, it's supposed to help with nausea. Keep eating as well, try bland things like dry biscuits/crackers, every hour or so.

Crackers and No to morning sickness tea are a pregnant woman's prize possession. They are portable, easy to digest, and inexpensive, and in many cases, they nip nausea in the bud.

Thank you so much every one for your help! I'll try everything! lol, but I will also talk to my doctor! thanks again!

Try going outside sitting in the fresh air and taking some deep breaths. I would get that way if I got too hot. You may try before you ever raise your head out of bed in morning starting with a few crackers and some 7up, just set it beside your bed before you go to sleep at night. So many people told me that one. :D I hope it helps.

I agree that ginger is very helpful, wrigleys now has a ginger gum out that worked well for me! Also try to eat a little bit every 30 min. like a handful of nuts or trail mix something with protein and that may also decrease your nausea.

i was sick all day for about the first 6 months of mine. the only thing that mildy helped me were blackmores ginger travel sickness tablets from the chemist. other than that i just plodded along with lots of days of work and lots of sleep.

If you can't find anything to relieve it, talk to your doctor.  I was having a bad time during the first trimester, not really throwing up just feeling awful all the time, and she put me on Reglan to take before meals and it worked wonders, until I got really sick and needed stronger stuff.  I started losing lots of weight and couldn't keep anything down at all, so they put me on Zofran at that point.

Eat something small every hour to hour and a half. Saltine crackers, trail mix and even eating slices of bread worked for me. Keep drinking ALOT of water and if it is still bad...drinking ginger ale helps.

I had the same thing with my first pregnancy. Watermelon really helped me. You just need to find that "snack" that really helps, and eat a lot of it!

Also, someone else posted about Raspberry Tea... I had heard the same thing and asked my doc about it... she said it's fine every once in a while, but if you drink too much too often it can cause premature labor, just FYI.

I had the exact same problem with my 2 previous pregnancies and I threw up all the time also..... I finally got weighed at my 12 week check up by my OB with my first baby and they said you are down 10 pounds and asked if I was throwing up a lot and I said yeah tons, and I just thought it was normal.. never the less they were able to prescribe me Zofran which is a safe medication actually originally used to treat the nausea that cancer patients get, but it worked great for me. I had to take it like every 6 hours around the clock for the first 20 weeks of the pregnancy but it worked wonders.... My second pregnancy was tons worse than the first and I told my midwife that I had that time to please call me in some and nipped it in the bud right away. although it worked I still had some nausea and vomiting even with the medication during my second pregnancy so I guess was just really sick with that one.. I just found out I am pregnant again so I guess we will see with this one how sick I get. I would try that Raspberry Leaf tea though, I have heard that works good too and there are other safe herbs you can try, if you go to a good natural health food store they can direct you to some safe ones for pregnancy! good luck!

I had the same problem at the beginning of my pregnancy... How far along are you? It usualy goes away in the second trimester. I used to keep crackers in my purse so I could eat a couple here and there to avoid getting really hungry. It actualy helped a lot!

I never had morning sickness... but i did feel ill if i hadn't ate. So I made a point to eat often and if I got busy and started to feel ill I ate right away. You mentioned you feel better after eating so you could try snacking every hour or so.

Unfortunately it is better if you do not take any meds for it... no one knows for sure what the side effects can be. Every pregnancy I had, I was sick for the first 4 months all day, every day... yes it was uncomfortable, but also yes you can get through it. It is just part of the fun.

Sorry to say Miranda, but I have two beautiful boys that I was sick during the whole 9 months all day with both of them! AWFUL! The doctor's prescribed an anti-nausea drug that seemed to work a little. I just had to eat every two hours or so (small portions), stay away from certain smells that bother you and just get rest. I love my boys but I hated being pregnant because I felt like crap the entire time! Many Blessings, Jennifer

Morning sickness can come anytime day or night. I know you don't feel like eating or drinking anything but you need too not only for the baby but for yourself as well. My midwife told me that the nauseous feeling directly relates to eating and drinking plenty of clear fluids. I'm not sure if you have tried Raspberry Leaf Tea or not but you should. It is toning to your smooth muscles and your heart and uterus are both smooth. Therefore bettering them for labor. Raspberry Leaf Tea is not raspberry flavored tea you can find it at any natural foods store also please note it has NO CAFFIENE. I buy mine in bulk. I've also been told this helps with mood swings as well. Also the tea has a calming effect to your hormones and as I'm sure you are well aware. Morning sickness and mood swings are your hormones midwife also told me that the tea could count towards my total clear fluid intake for the've probably been told this but you should be eating around 2-3 thousand calories/day and at the very least 36 oz of clear liquids/day. This all information my midwife gave me during my second pregnancy. I had an OB doctor w/my first and most of the information matched between the dr and midwife regarding caloric and fluid intake...the only thing the ob didn't suggest was the tea...not that i expected her too...her answer would have probably been more pharmaceutical in nature. Hope this helps hang in will get easier.
