Morning sickness is killing me here
I'm 8 weeks this week and the nausea is getting worse. I didn't even have one day of feeling sick with my first pregnancy. I'm struggling to get out of bed. I'm so exhausted that I'm struggling to do everything day things. Even walking up stairs I have to pull myself up with the railing and I can barely lift things. I feel dizzy. I'm so close to vomiting without actually vomiting. Eating makes me feel better for 10mins but then it's back with a vengeance. I'm barely eating as it is. This is horrible! My husband is so sick of me feeling so down and sick. Even getting through my shift at work is getting harder every day. I'm sleeping and having naps at every second I get. Is this normal!?

I am in the same boat, I can't stand food, I forse myself to eat. I have a toddler so no napping for me. I try to eat bread, and drink water.....its hard. I hope your feeling good soon.

I'll be 7wks on Friday. You're not alone. I had the same thing with my first. It's normal, but it's a lot to handle while feeling weak, exhausted and dehydrated. Hang in there I definitely understand.

Try Diclegis, it helps! Ask your doctor about it. Watermelon also helps soothe the stomach, also snack all the time, even in the middle of the night.  Nausea gets worse when your stomach is empty. Everything you're experiencing is normal and it's good to ask for help.  Rest as often as you can. Diclegis really helps a lot and is the safest medication there is.  It's just a B vitamin and an antihistamine.  You can get the prescription or buy them individually over the counter. Doctors prescribe it as an anti nausea medication for women who are pregnant, it has a long history, been arou d for decades and is very safe.  It is also the most scientifically studied medication in pregnant women.

I had morning sickness really bad and felt the same as your describing. Try hydralytes they are an ice block you can get from the chemist they help keep you hydrated and have electrolytes in them.
