  • best advice i got was don't drink liquid with your meals - wait at least 20 minutes after you eat to drink water or wait to eat for 20 minutes after you drink water to eat. i found that 20 minutes wasn't quite enough but this made a big difference

  • also... vitamin b6. there things like "citranatal b-calm" lozenges and lollipops probably behind pharmacy counter and probably available without prescription (my ob gave me samples). and i hate to eat breakfast that was more protein than anything

  • thank u! my ob just gave me samples of the bcalm...it seems to be a little nicer to me (other prenatals made me even MORE sick)...and i was taking the b6 once or twice a day...they said to take it 3X a day... which I'm having trouble remembering to do :/ Pregnancy brain.

  • sounds like you might have Hyperemesis Gravidarum have you talked to your dr about it it is sever nausea and throwing up almost constant my friend had this and it went away in her 2nd trimester but she struggled to gain weight. its awful i think if thats your case itd be better to have you dr help ya you might need an iv from time to time

  • they kinda treat me like some kinda liar or something because ive only vomitted a few times...but theres plenty of times i could have but stopped myself (vomitting is pretty much the worst thing in the world for me...ughh). But the nausea is sooooo bad. It may be a little better than it was. But I pretty much go from the bed to the couch...where I whine and complain while I watch DH take care of and hang out with our 6m old twins and 2.5yo...Its heartbreaking..i cant take care of them or enjoy them how I want to... i just sit/lay on the couch and suffer. I've gotten up to go to the store i think twice this week..,if not then just today... and i feel HORRIBLE. Dont get me wrong... i love this new LO and will do whatever I have to in order to get him/her here... i'm just absolutely msierable. I'm kinda hoping it means i'm having a boy (our 3 are girls).

  • Sorry, I was like that with all of my kids and Ginger was the only thing that helped... If you tried Ginger ale & it didn't work, first make sure it actually has Ginger in it and not just flavoring... OR you could try Candied Ginger, Ginger Snaps or even fresh Ginger... Beyond that I don't know what to tell you... That's just about all I ate for months and months...
