Good morning. I am happily 8 weeks pregnant after a MC last fall. We have correct dating US with 160 hb so the doctor has told us that the risk of MC is now less than 5 percent, so very optimistic.
I'm hoping, however, that some of you might be able to help sort out relief for some of my morning sickness symptoms.
I've always been a good, healthy eater and could eat virtually anything without upsetting my stomach, never had heartburn or indigestion, nothing.
I am suffering with MS, but also have lovely constipation and seem to feel some relief when I am able to burp (sorry TMI). On top of it, I have this horrendous taste in my mouth -- not metallic, but like morning breath -- but all the time. Some have mentioned this is acid reflux, although I don't seem to have any heartburn to speak of.
I'm just not sure which way to turn and I don't want to be taking a bunch of stuff for relief, but am virtually non-functioning right now.
Any thoughts? Should I try acid reflux med, gas X med, constipation med? Any ideas?
I would appreciate any help, thoughts, ideas. I would rather suffer through than do anything to harm the baby, but would love to try anything safe that might bring some relief.
FYI -- I have cut back on PNV per doc to see if that helps. Too soon to tell...
