@AlwaysLoverly:  Congrats on your pregnancy 🙂 I am 7 weeks too & suffering exactly the same. Definitely pop and see your Doctor, there’s not a huge amount they can prescribe, but they may wish to check on your hormone levels & ensure you’re not dehydrated. Try to sip small amounts of water for the time being. The good news is, hopefully this is a first trimester thing & its a good sign. Try to relax and seek medical help for sure. Hope you feel well soon!

Hope your doc can help you @AlwaysLoverly.  I was very similar to you for about three weeks.  Then I started on zantac twice a day and gravel twice a day on top of the diclectin.  Allowed me to get to work.  Now, at 12 weeks it is slowly going away or at least not so intense.

Congrats! That sucks you have morning sickness but yay for a healthy baby/ strong heart beat! Hopefully the promethazine helps you!

@AlwaysLoverly:  I was like this during the first portion of my pregnancy… try vitamin water zero – no calories, no sugar, but it has electrolytes. The gatorade seemed to dehydrate me more

I’m seven weeks along and having the same issue, must worse than with my Dear Daughter. I was given a prescription for strong anti nausea medicine. I was also told zofran was a good one to try. Good luck!

I was seven weeks when I started feeling miserable. I was throwing up 4-5 times a day, and my doctor gave me Zofran. Without it, I couldn’t exist. I tried the unisom B6 mix, but it made me worse. 

Actually, I’m 33 weeks, and I continue to throw up– less frequently now. I’m gaining weight, so my OBs aren’t concerned anymore. 

I hope your “morning sickness” goes away in the first trimester!

@AlwaysLoverly:  I loved my Zofran but my insurance would only pay for 20 pills every 30 days.  I would try to drag it out and make it last as long as possible but I also ended up getting an rx for Phenergan to supplement when I ran out of Zofran.  Zofran was my best friend.
