    I’ve had severe morning sickness since week 6. The only thing that has helped me is prescription Zofran and eating as frequently as possible. Even with the medication I have issues sometimes. Good luck!

    No meaning to thread high jack, but can anyone “explain” their morning sickness? Is there warning? In the am I always feel like I am going to puke, but never enough to run to the bathroom. Just that pukey feeling for a while and then it passes. I just don’t know if that’s my body “warning” me it’s coming, so it got me thinking does it happen first thing, or after you’ve been up for a bit, or ? I get up and am out the door with my dogs within 10 mins of waking up, and so…..pukey on the sidewalk….not pretty! ha!

    Mine was worse weeks 6 through 9. It was all day every day. I felt awful! From weeks 9-15, it lessened quite a bit. I’d feel nauseous for a day or two, and then good for a few days, then nauseous again. Now it is gone almost completely (I’ll still have a random day when I don’t feel well, but nothing like before)!!!


    @Beebug:   I would just feel nauseous all the time. I would wake up feeling nauseous. If I drank water I’d feel nauseous. If I ate I felt nauseous. I just couldn’t get rid of it. I would throw up maybe 2-3 times per week, but that didn’t make me feel any better. I would also spend a lot of time running to the bathroom as if I were going to throw up, and then just gag. The gagging didn’t help.

    @Beebug: I was literally on the verge of throwing up, or actually throwing up, 24/7 from weeks 5.5-18. The only clue I had that I was actually going to throw up was that my mouth would fill with saliva about 20-30 seconds beforehand. Maybe watch for that? I hope instead, you just start to feel better soon!

    I was so sick that even seeing food on TV would send me running to the toilet. My husband couldn’t even mention certain foods without my stomach churning and forget trying to cook, even just for him. Some things that helped me were taking unisom and b6 at bedtime (suggested by the OB). I tried zofran but it backed me up so badly that it was almost worse and I quit it after 10 days. Also, for food: chewing gum, eating popsicles because the cold would settle my stomach, and eating really bland foods that weren’t too sweet or too salty like shortbread, chicken noodle soup, corn chex, toasted bagels with cream cheese and bananas. I got enough fluids by mixing a splash of cranberry juice into my water to make it palatable, or drinking bubbly water–plain water made me gag. 

    Fish oil is particularly difficult to take while throwing up because well, it ends up tasting and smelling like fish, but there is a brand that makes a strawberry flavored one–I highly recommend it! Also, if your prenatals are making you sick, as long as you’re getting enough folic acid, you can take just a regular multi which is much easier on your stomach. 

    Just eat what you can, when you can, no matter what it is, and rest as much as you possibly can. This part will pass and you’ll enjoy food again, I promise. Feel better soon!
