Have you tried unisom and B6 yet? I know those were a lifesaver for me during the 1st trimester!

Try 100mg of B6. I swear this is the reason I didn’t get ANY morning sickness. Good luck!

That’s awesome advice!

With my morning sickness, the ONLY thing that helped was exercise and Kraft mac+cheese, bizarrely enough!

Sorry you are having such a rough time with this!  Jolly ranchers worked wonders for my nausea and were lifesavers at work!  However, it sounds like your case is worse so I doubt this will help you.  The times I actually threw up I don’t think anything could have stopped it but at least the nauseous periods were lessened.

I had severe nausea and vomiting during my whole pregnancy, which lasted throughout. It was complicated by acid problems. With respect to zantac, it’s not really like a take before you eat drug – I think it works best taken at the same time each day – I took mine exactly 12 hours apart. Drugs like gaviscon work great when you take them before you eat, and the zantac works well in overall diminishment of symptoms. Hope it gets better for you soon!

Just chiming in to say I can comiserate.  9w 5d and sick all. the. time.  Vomiting around 4-6 times a day, even with Diclegis (the US version of Diclectin).  Zofran is the only thing that helped me, but I had to stop taking it because of a bad side effect.

I’ve been trying to drink as much water, gatorade and ginger ale as I can.  Food wise, nothing really is safe, so I’m eating what sounds good– it seems a crapshoot as far as what stays down and what comes back up.  Over the weekend, I discovered chewing gum helps A LOT, so I’ve been trying to do that constantly.

Good luck– I hope for both of our sakes (and babies!) that it goes away soon.  This is the worst!

I completely understand your frustration. I’m 30 weeks, and I still throw up. For the first trimester, I threw up at least 3 times a day, and I started zofran. It’s the only thing that helped me. I took it through much of my second trimester. Now I onlly throw up 3-4 times a week. My doctor said the same thing about stomach acid, so I take pepcid, too.

I hope you feel better. It’s so tough to exist when you’re miserable…
