So DH and I just found out we are expecting…I am going to my doctor this week for the blood test but all 5 pregnancy tests pointed to yes! I have been totally fine until today (4.5 weeks). My stomach feels really full and I am really nauseous. I have been truing to sleep but once I settle in I wake up super nauseous with a full stomach feeling.
I am not at the throwing up point…just a very full tummy feeling which is making it incredibly difficult to sleep (been up ALL night).
What can I do?

Try taking some morning sickness tablets, i had to take mine with water (now 26 weeks and 3 days) as they were ginger flavoured, at night time see if the dr can give you some maxalon, they are anti nausea tablets but make you very sleepy, also try taking your pregnancy vitamins before bed as they made my nausea alot worse during the day because of all the strong mix of stuff in them.<br />try eating really small snacks throughout the day, I am not normally a grazer but would find myself nibbling on salt and vinegar crackers or chips as i couldn’t stomach plain foods and the salt seemed to help me feel less sick. try drinking alot of water as the pregancy vitamins and the very early stages of pregnancy can make you extremely constipated (this is unfortunately common throuughout the whole thing so i’m told) this is what can add to feeling extremely bloated and full.<br />the bloaty feeling didn’t go away for me until about 19 weeks when i then finally popped now i just feel like a very inflated balloon that you just want to pop to release the tension lol.<br />i would definitely try the maxalon if you are really uncomforable for not getting much sleep this worked great for me and i just tried to put up with my nausea throughout the day. the full stomach feeling probably won’t go away but you can ease it.

If it gets really bad, see if your doctor could prescribe something. Depending on the country, there are different things available.
I had to go on Diclectin this time, as much as I hate taking any type of meds during pregnancy, I needed to. I was throwing up constantly and felt miserable all of the time. I’m not taking it now, but at 19 weeks, I am still getting morning sicknes.. blah!
Things that help me, are peppermint tea, ginger boiled in water (drink the ginger water), small snacks, and foods that aid in digestion. The hormones of pregnancy slow down the digestive system, and it sounds like that may be the problem you’re having right now.
Congrats on your pregnancy 🙂 I hope the sickness subsides soon!

Zofran is the only anti-nausea medicine that works for me. I’m pregnant with twins, so I’ve been sick quite a bit. Small, consistent meals have also helped me (yogurt is my go to snack). Hopefully you’ll feel better soon!

Do you take a prenatal before bed? I did and would be so sick during the night. I ended up switching to gummies. I would take 1 with breakfast and 1 with dinner-or my weird version of those meals. Apple juice and carbs were my friends during the 1st trimester, but I still didn’t eat much. I ended up losing quite a bit of weight those first few months. I hope you get some relief!
