  • IT IS OK...I WAS THROWING UP 7 TO 8 TIMES A DAY FOR THE FIRST 4 MONTHS OF MY PREGNANCY AND LOST ABOUT 30 POUNDS, AND HAVE NOT GAINED ANY WEIGHT AND I AM ALMOST 9 MONTHS PREGNANT NOW. MY DOCTOR GAVE ME ONDANSETRON, IT WORKS GREAT AND DOESN'T MAKE YOU DROWSY EITHER. GOOD LUCK AND I HOPE IT GETS BETTER FOR YOU!!

  • well.. im pretty sure the throwing up is a normal pregos thing. im pregos also and i get very dizzy this time around. keep eating. and dont worrie about the baby i had a friend who threw up everyday and barlly ate. cuz she felt so sick. but her baby came out fine. as i see and learnd from my baby and my friends baby and the one im haveing now is. if you dont eat, your going to pay for it. not the baby (lol the baby will suck you dry). only if you get too skinny then you should worry. just try not to lose to much. drink lots of water! lots! and milk and oj. just try to stay healthy and i know thats hard when your throwing up. good luck and i hope you feel better
    yea call you doc! im sure they can help you some how.

  • If you like pickles try drinking the pickle juice, its supposed to be good for naseua. Thats the only thing that would settle my moms stomach when she was preggo with me, and she throw up for the whole nine months. What settled my stomach when i was preggo with my son was Dr. Pepper sounds weird i know. But your baby will be fine.

  • Don't worry too much. I was throwing up constantly with my son. I lost about 30-40lbs. I was worried too, but my dr. told me that the baby is not in danger. You just need to stay hydrated. I got desperate because I felt so awful, and was losing so much weight. My dr. finally prescribed an anti-nausea pill called Zofran, it was amazing. I could finally eat again.

  • Don't worry! I had the WORST stomach bug during my pregnancy...ugh three days of puking. You'll be surprised but as long as you get some fluid your LO will be fine! If its not a stomach bug, but morning sickness, you need to talk to the doc about anti nausea meds!! My mom had SEVERE MS with me...and I weighed almost 9lbs at birth so don't worry :-D
