I tried looking this up but didn't get what I was looking for (please help)

Why does having a miscarriage make you nauseous? I haven't been able to eat anything since Thursday and keep throwing up water. Besides being emotionally drained, this is making me even more tired. I have a 6 month old son and it's getting very hard to function. My appointment with the OBGYN isn't till Monday and I could really use some advice.

I'm just really confused as to why I lost my baby but have to deal with worse sickness than while I was pregnant.

  • My guess is it could be your body readjusting to not being pregnant anymore. I didn't feel like eating when I had my 2 m/c, but I didn't throw up. I would bring this up to your dr asap though.

  • The nauseousness you are experiencing could be completely unrelated to your miscarriage. Do you have any other symptoms such as fever or aches? Was this a spontaneous complete miscarriage at home or did you receive medication in the hospital? Some of the meds we use for women with incomplete miscarriages can cause nausea. Until you can see you MD, try very hot or very cold liquids (ice chips or tea) as these tend to be less offensive to the gut. Once you are keeping down liquids you can add crackers and toast. If the vomiting is unbearable go to your local ER for fluid replacement and anti-emetics.

  • The doctor at the ER warned me that I may be nauseous, but I just wanted to get out of there so I didn't listen much and left.

  • I had a blighted ovum and my body finally miscarried at 12 weeks (I had no idea the baby didn't form so went to the ER). I decided on letting everything pass naturally so I haven't taken any medication. Ice actually sounds pretty good though, thank you.

  • I'd rather just be sick at home then have to deal with the ER again. It took 3 hours for me to get an ultrasound and they kept forgetting about me. I guess it's just not that much of an emergency when you haven't gotten to that 22 week mark.
