Don't know what to do...

I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow, weighed myself and I'm done 4 more lbs... That makes a total of 24 lbs down.
I eat and throw it up hours later. I can't seem to keep food down no matter what I do....
I'm plan miserable, nausea, vomiting, and now heartburn.
I'm just concerned for my baby...

Crackers don't even work anymore...  They used to help now it's nothing.

Has your doctor said anything about it? I would be talking with them about ways that could help you keep things down. Maybe look up safe natural remedies to help with it.

Try tums for heartburn they are safe during pregnancy and zofran is a b class drug and is considered somewhat safe during pregnancy but there also has been birth defects but if you can't keep anything down then I would take the chance. Try gingerale and crackers first before putting your baby in any possible harm but if you can't keep anything down I think it would be worth taking zofran to stop the vomiting.

I'm pretty sure there are other nausea Pills you can take while pregnant other than zofran. Just look into things and do some research

Definitely speak to your dr, my dr prescribed me some anti nausea tablets which helped me, otherwise look up natural remedies, mint helps, along with dry crackers and lemonade, but definitely ask your doctor

Like the last poster said I would get sea bands! I was that sick about a month ago and since getting them I haven't vomited! Such a big help especially if you don't want to risk taking zofran....

Where do you get sea bands?
I have zofran (well generic) it can do wonders but not all the time.  
Also have been prescribed zantac (generic) that helps as well, but really try not to take meds everyday.

Vitamin B6 and lemon candy
