    How far along are you? Some people’s nausea clears up around 10-12 weeks but for some, it just gets less severe & they’re a little/moderately nauseated throughout their pregnancy. I hope you’re in the first group!!

    That sucks. 🙁 If you’re trying to control it with diet, ginger or mint tea both help a lot. That said, controlling with diet doesn’t mean you CAN’T fill your prescription for diclectin. Do your best with diet, but if there are days that you really can’t function, taking a pill is probably better than missing work, not eating all day, etc.

    @envirobride:  My MS started at week 3, got nearly unbearable in week 5, and FINALLY calmed down in weeks 10-11, and was gone by week 12!

    Mine started at exactly 7 weeks.  It was the worst around weeks 10-13 probably but I still had it until week 19.  So far I have been nausea and vomit free for the past 3 days (knock on wood).  Hope yours gets better soon!

    Mine was at it’s worst from week 9-14. I only throw up a few times a week now. It’s funny that we post about that like its a good thing it’s only a few times lol I just try to eat smaller meals more often and I am usually good. I am at week 19 currently.

    Mine lasted longer than the typical 12 weeks. I am not sure with my first pregnancy, but my second it was around 18-19 weeks and my third was around 22 weeks. It seemed to get worse and last longer with each pregnancy. With my third I was on prescription nausea medicine and almost had to get fluids:(

    I’m on diclegis (I think the same thing you were prescribed but correct me if I’m wrong) and honestly, I was against using meds as well but after going through some tough weeks I gave in. I’m 22w 3 days now and last week I forgot to take a pill and boy did I pay for it! I ended up leaving work and was violently throwing up for hours. There is no shame in taking the meds if you need them.

    for me continually munching and eating from the moment I got up helped manage the sickness. If I went too long then I would get really sick and then I couldnt get rid of it. 

    I started the day with cereal and then kept munching all day. Fruit, crackers and PB, noodle soup. Lots of carbs basically.

    I dont know exactly when it ended, but it was just about the second trimester.

    @envirobride:  I had horrible MS from 6wks till 14wks. I just ate whatever sounded good, which ended up being mashed potatoes, ramen noodles and gatorade. You’ll survive and so will baby. Baby is like a parasite at this point and it will get what it needs from whatever you eat and also from it’s yolk sak. Just eat what you can and keep crackers on hand.

    @envirobride:  I’m sorry you’re feeling so horrible. It should get better over time.  Weeks 4-8 were absolutely brutal for me.  Week 8-10 were great, no nausea whatsoever.  Weeks 10-13 are a little worse but still way better than the first few weeks.  I usually feel okay until the end of the day/early evening when I get tired and hungry.


    Try eating small, frequent meals. Eat something before you even get out of bed in the morning and keep some crackers by your bed at night and take a few bites if you wake up.  I hope you start feeling better soon.  


    ETA – eat whatever you can stomach.  For a while, all I could eat was french fries.  Horrible for you, but better than nothing.  Watermelon and soup got me through, as well.  If you  have terrible metal mouth (I did which made the nausea worse), I would suck on altoids, lemons and eat pickles.  It’s all that seemed to help.
