  • I took ginger root pills when I had morning sickness. It didn't stop the nausea, but it stopped the puking entirely. I threw up maybe once after I started taking the pills. I think I would've ended up in the hospital without them : / They're only $5.99 at GNC for about 150 pills, I never ended up using the entire bottle because my morning sickness went away.

    I's worth a try =]

  • They should have some "preggo pops" at your local maternity store. They worked for me. They kinda tasted like marijuana, though. lol. But DH said he didn't taste it, so maybe it was my imagination...

  • As long as you can drink a teaspoon of water your fine. I couldnt and had to go the hopital to get rehydrated and get a shot every two weeks. During the mean time I had a perscription to make it a little better.
    Non of the natural remidies worked for me and lasted half way through my second trimester. ugg

    I would call your doc to tell them and they might give you a scrip to. I would try the natural remidies first. Do a google search, there are ALOT out there.

    This was with my third and last, I told my SO that if this would have happend before I would have had my tubes tied Along time ago. I was plagued with ALL of the prego symptoms though, including nose bleeds, that I didnt even now it was a symptom before.

  • I'm 33 weeks pregnant right now and I know what you're going through. What my doctor suggested was to eat constantly. Have breakfast, then snack, lunch, then snack, dinner, then snack. You can also try Pediasure so you can get the daily vitamins (I tried that for a couple of weeks until I got tired of drinking it). If you start losing weight, you need to tell your doctor. This happened to me too and the doctor got concerned so he had to put me on Zofran. After taking this pill, I could finally eat without throwing up. Good luck!

  • My cousin was the same way when she was pregnant with her daughter. She could not keep anything down whatsoever, all during her pregnancy she was like that. Her daughter is 2 now, and she now has to have a feeding tube to eat.
