I was really sick through my second semester; I’m sorry, it sucks.  🙁  There’s a lot of home remedies you can try yourself, to see if it helps: anything ginger (REAL ginger, not the fake stuff), sucking on hard or sour candy, snacking continuously throughout the day so your stomach never gets empty, SeaBands (you can buy them at the grocery store), or taking B6 vitamin supplements.  The only thing that worked for me, though, was a prescription for Zofran.  If it gets really bad, you might want to talk to your doctor about getting a prescription.

Omigosh, I’m so sorry you’re going through that!  When you throw up, do you feel, if just temporary, relief?  I’m just now getting out of the nausea stage.  I was nauseous ALL DAY.  But, I rarely threw up and I always wondered if it’d be better if I did.  The things that worked for me were to eat a protein and carb every 2-3 hours.  Because if I felt hunger at all, it would quickly turn into me being sick and trying to eat at that point is horrible.  There were also motion sickness wrist bands, I got them at Target.  Somehow they worked!  Plus, I take my prenatal at night.  I realized that it was contributing to the sickness- lovely.  If you’re home and not feeling well, a cold cloth on your forehead helps a bit.  And I know ginger does help.  I just can’t handle it.  If you can, that’d be great.  But  not ginger ale, unless it has real ginger (I never found real ginger ale). 

I hope it passes soon!

I feel you! Its absolutely horrible !!! I was sick my entire first trimester. What i found helped me was if you get a hankering for something… EAT IT. I found that indulging in my craving helped keep the sickness at bay. Sour candy was also a life saver ! Other than that… I was medicated. I needed the extra help. If It its really starting to affect your everyday talk to your doctor. Its worth it !

 

Also… i thought it would never go away. At 14 weeks it just stopped miraculously.

I was sick the whole time I was pregnant with Moose. Natural Brew Outrageous Ginger Ale really helped me. Also, try to find a lotion which makes you feel better. I found that mint lotion really helped me, so whenever I smelled something awful, I’d smell my hands. It doesn’t help everytime, but it helps. It could also be your prenatals, when you take them. Good luck!

@ManciasToBe: Yeah, try taking them at night. If that doesn’t help, try a different prenatal. And if it makes you feel any better, I was sick the whole time with Moose. Wombat, I’ve only been sick maybe 15 times.

preggie pops have seemed to be the only thing that has helped my sister.  She has probably thrown up 5 times her whole life and she’s been sicker than sick during the 1st trimester.

Try buying some natural oils & carry with you when you smell bad things. I carry peppermint oil & whenever I feel sick or a smell that makes me sick I whip it out & put some on my wrists…also dab at base of neck & temples might help ~ helps with headaches too.

My sister bought me preggie pops, and as far as I could tell, they weren’t any different from regular old lollipops! (i.e. from the ingredient list)

Trying to swallow big pills made me gag, so I went off regular prenatals entirely and did chewable gummy Flintstones instead. Still do sometimes.

I had prescriptions for both Zofran and Phenergan to help me stay remotely functional for first trimester. Wasn’t fun, but they did help- especially the Phenergan, which also made me drowsy (good b/c my nausea was often worst at night and kept me up).

Weirdly enough, I also found that exercise helped. It was the last thing I WANTED to do, but if I could just get myself to a class (I used to do these bootcamp-like classes), once I started I just forgot about the nausea. (Obviously, ask your OB about exercise and any restrictions). But yeah, I think exercising was the only time I didn’t want to throw up.

@ManciasToBe: I’m so sorry. It sucks to be sick the whole time. It’s hard to do anything or realyl enjoy being pregnant. Are you still in the first trimester?
