I am 6 weeks prego with my second child. I have a 4 month old. I am having really bad morning sickness, nothing stays down. I need some remedies because taking care of a 4 month old and getting sick just doesn't mix. Thank you!!!!!
Hi! If you were my patient, I would be totally sympathetic! The first thing I would advise is don't go longer than 24 hours without at LEAST taking liquids. If you are getting that bad--IV fluid can help you get on your feet much faster. As for prescriptions, I have found that Zofran can be VERY helpful, so you might ask your doctor or midwife what his/her experience with that medication has been. Ginger really does have anti-nausea propeties, so at your local maternity store, or on line look for lolly pops or candy. As far as diet, most of my patients can find at least one thing they can eat, and I tell them to eat it no matter how crazy it is and not to worry about eating properly until their nausea settles down. I hope this helps, and hope the other ladies have some tips for you! Good luck! btw--think about some good birth control! =)
Omg.....I have an 8 month old son and a 5 year old girl. I am 11 weeks prego and I have had the worst morning sickness with each one and this one is just the same. And with a little baby it can be really hard to be sick all the time. Zofran is the best had it with the first 2 and now with this one and warm ginger ale . Those are the only thing that has helped me at all I lost 7 lbs over a 5 day period last week . So I feel for you girl but it will get better!!! Just remember warm ginger ale and zofran is a must !!!!!!!! Good luck
I had pretty bad morning sickness i got put on diclectin ( maybe canadian ) its a vitamin B 6 mixed eith antihistamine or watever main ingredient is in benadryl i think its an anhistamine pretty sure , if u live in states im sure they have same or similar medication by dif name, diclectin was made specifically for pregnant women pill even has a pregnant silloette on top of it , they are pretty pricey tho mine was covered under goverment medical here but 90 pills was $ hundred fifty or more if i remeber correctly it was over one hundred for sure i was stunned but cant tem exact it was 5 months ago since last got it , they generally msde it tolerable i wasnt violently ill just moderate-severe and couldnt or did not want food n list lots of weight , until i got them then slowly ate more n more , until mid sec trimester i went off, i was tO take 1-3 a day vut if didnt help 2-6 a day , every 6 hours as they take that long to kick in fully , so i just did take them all the time until second tri then i tried seeing how i did with out n slowly stopped , i was told if i cant hold those down to use gravol sopository if nessesary but i never did , my ob gyn said its fine but every obgyn or dr has diff opinions but maybe ask , they do make u sleeepy tho ( antihistamines do) so it might be counter productive
Drink Canada dry gingerale and stir out bubbles. Also try eating smaller more frequent meals with high protein! Question about zofran....is that considered safe? I'm having sickness too in my 9th and want to go as natural as possible but need to function better
My doctor had me take two tums with my prenatal and said the extra calcium would help. I also found Tazo Calm tea to be very helpful in calming my achy belly. I have a 6 and 8 year old to get ready every morning and that first trimester was downright horrible this time. I tried Preggo pops but they didn't help me. Good luck and I'm sure it'll pass soon.
I am 7 weeks pregnant and having a very bad nausea, upset stomach and fatigue. My work is heavy so i am concern how that affects to my baby. Havent seen a doctor yet but planning to on my day off. Ive been having an upset stomach for 3weeks now and eating fruits/veggies makes it worse. I easily feel full in a small amount of eating and sometimes have shortness of breath when i eat. I wonder if anybody also experiences the same?
Zofran is completely safe. I had terrible morning sickness that lasted all day longy whole first trimester. Chewing on ice helped and anything salty or sour. Try salted peanuts or crackers. Sometimes, not having any food in your system makes you nauseous as well, so try to eat small meals frequently.
I'm pregnant with my second to but my daughter is four and I've had horrible morning sickness I got these bracelets callled sea bands and no joke they are awesome they aren't expensive and they really do work give it a try hope this helps
