anyone else been puke-y the whole pregnancy?? is this normal??

My first pregnancy was a breeze until the end of the 7th month when i swelled up to be as big as a whale!! i had hellp syndrome in the end, had an emergency c section... my son and i were fine but it was a bad ending... so i am watching for that.. (it would be swelling and high blood pressure) and not to jinx myself but no signs of it returning...
this time i have struggled the whole time to keep food down... i had terrible morning sickness the first tri... then during the second tri was flu season, i am a tutor in school, got everything imaginable... now that i am in the 3rd, i thought my body might take it easy on me but no, i have sinus drainage that makes me puke at least once a day... i usually throw up in the morning and if i eat after 9 pm at night! (yes most days twice a day!) i can and do eat during the day. doc is unconcerned bcuz i havent lost weight... gained very slowly... has this happened 2 you??

  • I was sick almost every single day of my first pregnancy. As long as you and the baby have gained normally, there's no reason to worry. I do hope that you feel better, though! It's really hard to function when you're so constantly sick for such a long period of time. : /

  • My sister had hypermesis (sp?) She was severly sick. Had to be hospitalized a few times for dehydration. She lost tons of weight.

  • I was nauseated and puking the entire pregnancy. I was sick in the begining from the hormones, then towards the end because he was pushing on my stomach and intestines. Just when I thought I wasn't going to be puking anymore, I went into pre-labor my last 4 weeks which caused nausea and vomitting too lol.

  • My first prenancy was super easy. He was a boy. My daughter was terrible! Morning sickness everyday, heart burn, restless legs syndrom, I even craved eating ashes at the very end! I did actually stop gaining weight for the last month and a half-- but she still was. So all was ok... but scary! AND then her labor was 24 hours of H@$#@!!! But now we have her and she was worth it :)
    The crazy thing was was that my son was born 2 1/2 months early. No reason was ever decided. I was so nervous with my daughter but, aside from the major discomfort, we were totally healthy every step of the way. But she was 2 weeks early.
    GOOD LUCK!!! I will say a prayer for yas!

  • I am 25 weeks and still have morning sickness. The doctors have prescribed me two different types of anti nausea medication and neither did anything for me. I have had fluids 3 times alreaady this pregnancy. I went to a high risk doc last tuesday and he told me to take a unison (25mg) with a b6 vitamin also 25 mg. And I have not gotten sick one time since I started them a week ago!! I am so happy. Although I am sleeping constantly. But during the day he recommends only taking a half of unisom in the morning and half in the afternoon so you arent as tired!! Ask your doc if that is an option for you!! Good luck hun!

  • i also had hyperemisis gravidarium. its basically constant puking and dehydration during pregnancy. i had it with all four of my kids. i honestly think i would have more babies, but my last one just took too much out of me. with all 4, i would get to the point of passing out, couldnt keep ANYTHING down, everything (sinus drainage, like you said, smells, food) made me vomit. i was in and out of the hospital needing iv's. i was prescribed medicine (for the life of me, cant even remember the name) starts with an x-its normally for people taking chemo, for their nausea. it helped so much, but its expensive, and i dont thing most insurances cover it for preg.
    i would try what hayhaymarie2009 said-the unisom and B6. never heard of doing it, but ANYTHING is worth the relief! hope you feel better soon!
