@Mrs.Moser:  I was lucky and escaped morning sickness myself, but I’ve heard other bees take Unisom and B6 (I think?) in combination, and others have gotten prescriptions (Diclegis, I think?). I would call your doc today and let them know you’re not keeping anything down – they should give you some advice or a prescription. MS is to be expected, but enough to cause you to be dehydrated is too much and is reason to get help! Good luck, lovely! And congrats on your pregnancy!

Unfortunately, I am the resident MS expert of the April group, though I am still sick and miserable myself.

Zofran = amazing, but made me wicked constipated, so I had to stop.

Ginger supplement = didn’t do anything

Diclegis (prescription version of Unisom + B6) = meh.  I’m still taking it, but I’d say it only produces around a 25-30% reduction in my symptoms.

What has worked for me the most is eating when I have an intense craving for something– that usually stays down.  Chewing gum and sucking on candy (peppermints, citrus drops, ginger candy) helps in immediate situations.  Not getting too full, and spacing out meals so that I don’t get too hungry helps.

I wish you luck and comiserate with you.  I’m 13w 1d and am really hoping this starts to go away soon.  I’ve lost about 12lb so far.  It’s miserable.

@Mrs.Moser:  I’m 6w5d and for the last week I’ve been nauseous ALL day, throwing up multiple times in a day and just feeling sick in general. My dr said he doesn’t want to prescribe meds unless I’m keeping nothing down. I told him I’m usually able to keep down dinner and he said that’s okay for now. I try to snack and drink hot lemon tea. I guess its just a waiting game 🙁

The ONLY thing that helped me was exercise and peanut butter!

If you haven’t been keeping food/liquids down and feel weak you should call you doctor – there are lots of completely safe medications that you can take and they may want to rehydrate you. I had severe morning sickness the whole pregnancy and migranes the first two trimesters, even though I had only had a couple ever too. But there’s lots of stuff they can do to help in that respect, so don’t hesitate to ask for it. Persistent vomiting and migranes aren’t something that a doctor would tell you to suck it up over so you should go in and get some relief!

I’m a migraine sufferer also and the only thing that has helped my headaches during this pregnancy is caffeine. If I get a really bad headache I start with Tylenol (up to two extra strength) and if that doesn’t work I will have a half a can of Coke. It’s seriously amazing how much the caffeine helps my head. My OB told me it was completely safe as long as I don’t exceed more caffeine than a cup of coffee per day. I’m sorry I don’t have any advice for the nausea though.
