Nausea with contractions

Has anyone dealt with this? I'm 40 weeks 3 days. I've had contractions off and on for the past week. Now if I'm contracting while eating I get nauseous. I take zofran once a day to stop nausea. I can take it up to 3 times a day. Would you take more zofran or stop eating when a contraction comes on?

I didn't even take zofran with my hypermesis pregnancy, so there's no way I'd be taking it for regular nausea.

I've been taking it due to hypermesis. It was the only way I could keep anything down.

I didn't think zofran was around at that time.

My mon took some of that medication when she was pregnant with me. I tell her that is why I can't do math, the medication broke that part of my brain. She did say that she stopped taking it when it got out that it was causing problems.

If I were you, I wouldn't take Soren unless you are unable to function without it. I had to take it a few times during the first trimester of my first pregnancy.
Contractions make me really nauseous also. You can try to breathe through the contractions and try to focus on an object, to help avoid vomiting. I know it's tough. Good luck.

I would not take it.. just eat/drink according to what I could handle. I had hg with all four of my pregnancies.. which eased up in the last trimester, then the nausea returned with contractions. Never took meds at all.. watched activity and food/drink intake, increased b vits and ginger.

I've never experienced this but I hope you feel better soon. I'd probably avoid Zofran for just regular nausea.
