I had it severely with my first 2 pregnancies & spent most of the first 4 months hospitalized. I had daily injections of Compazine & Thorazine, which helped with the nausea, but kept me pretty much knocked out. This was 26 years ago, so I don't know if they still use them or not. When I found out they were actually tranquilizers used for mental patients, I refused to let my Dr. prescribe them, unless he could assure me that it would not have a bad affect on the baby. He told me if I didn't, I was so sick I would probably lose the baby within 3 days. So, I reluctantly went along with it & went on to have a healthy baby each time. I had absolutely no morning sickness with my last 2 pregnancies. My first 2 were in my 20's the second 2 were in my 40's, maybe that made a difference, I don't know.
