So I’ve been hit with more like sickness all day. I’ve only thrown up a small number of times in comparison to how terrible I feel, nauseated all day long with no end in sight it feels. Once I eat then I get heartburn.
Ladies, when did this slow down and stop for you during your pregnancy? Any suggestions or remedies that you’ve used that helped?

Go see your Dr and get something to take! Seriously.
I was very blessed not to have it, but people can have it the whole way through even….no need to suffer.

I haven’t been pregnant yet but my coworker had morning sickness through her entire pregnancy. It’s called hyperemesis, and she has it again the second time around 🙁
Your doctor can give you something to help with it… Poor you!

I had it pretty much the entire first and third trimester. Hang in there!
Candied ginger, sour oranges and preggie pops saved me. Also, it seems counteri-ntuitive, but when I first woke up and had an empty stomach, that’s when it hit me the hardest, so I kept crackers and ginger ale by my bed and had a few before I got out of bed and it helped a lot. If it’s really bad, you can get something from your OB.

I have a doctor’s appointment on Monday so I’m definitely going to ask for something because I don’t want to feel sick every single day, especially when I have to get up early for work.
I’ve heard a lot of things about preggie pops, I need to find them ASAP so I can have something while I’m at work.

It was a solid 4 months for me. I went on Diclegis, but it only helped for about a day, and took Zofran on really bad days. The best solution I found was Benadryl; it really helped.
As for heartburn, it’s still ongoing, unfortunately. Lots of Tums and Trader Joe’s Ginger Beer are how I’m trying to manage it.

peppermint worked for me both pregnancies. I sucked on candy canes all day 🙂
For me, it stopped weeks 15-16 both times

I’ve got a container of tums in my purse. I’ve been doing ginger ale but I think I may switch to ginger beer because it’s more potent. I may have to run to Trader Joe’s.

Mine went away around 17weeks

My doc recommended an over the counter long avting acid blocker. The valve over the stomach stays open when nausea is in play letting acid creep up and making the nausea worse. I can’t remember which one, pepcid? Ask your doc. It really helped. As for me, I had dyed in the wool HG with all three of my pregnancies all nine months. I was one of those who qualified for zofran 24/7 despite uncertainty of effects for life-saving purposes. It really was life threatening for me until they got the zofran on board and prescribed correctly. But your symptoms don’t justify the risk of birth defects. They may try diglecin which does have a withdrawal factor. Just go off it slowly or use benadryl to ween off withdrawal symptoms. For your severity of symptoms I would expect the sickness to be almost all gone or really completely gone by 14 weeks. Are you beyond that?

DH ordered me a bunch off Amazon because he looked for them at Walgreens and CVS but they were always out of stock. The hard candy versions are great for work since I found it weird sucking a lollipop at the office – I kept a ton in my desk drawer!

Mine stopped around 16 weeks and it was terrible until that point. I felt hung over for 3 months. I’m 18.5 weeks now and feeling so much better.

35 weeks, it came back right before I went into labor. In a way I was lucky because I had a week and a couple days of relief and some women have it all 9 months with no breaks and some which is kind of rare still have it for a while after they have birth.
If it is really bad and interferes with your bring able to drink and eat get medication, prolonged nausea and vomiting is very bad for both you and your baby.

My husband bought me some motion sickness wristbands, at the advice of his coworkers. I thought it was strange but I gave it a try because I don’t want to take drugs. They work! I’ve been vomit free for 3 glorious days so far.

Unfortunately, I may not end. Mine kept going until 34 weeks (and baby was born early at 36 weeks). Things that helped: a vitamin B6/Unisom combo daily (Google this or talk to your Dr, I did 50 mg B6 twice daily and 1/2 a Unisom tablet at night), eating small meals/snacks throughout the day (I found it helped to never be hungry and never be really full), drinking water with lemon (or just having lemons around to smell them when my tummy was feeling yucky), Preggie pop drops. And I carried around a few gallon-sized Ziplocs in my purse in case of emergency, and they came in handy more than once. I also had a stash in each of our cars.
