On of the joys of pregnancy is Morning Sickness. All day sickness more like it for me really from 6-23 weeks with both sons. Well I have hit the 6 weeks mark and was feeling okay, just a little nausea but this morning I feel like I have been ran over by a truck, I feel so sick, have not been sick yet but to be honest I think sick.gif I will be sick sad.gif .


So any tips to stop it. I have so many things I have to do in a day with 2 toddlers and don't have time to feel sick.


I am also overly emotional this morning too, crying just sitting here, for no reason. cry1.gif

Hit me a couple of days ago too.bam all day/night wanna spew nothing stops it sickness. Sometimes I wonder if actually being sick helps.

I find it worse at work as I'm sitting down all day.

I'm just trying to eat on a regular basis and pretty plain foods. Oh and fruit tingles.

I swore by ginger teddy bear jubes when I was pregnant with DD2.  

With DD1 I had to eat small, regular meals.  And eat as soon as I woke up!  If my blood sugar dropped, I would feel dreadful.  Find some low GI foods as they will help regulate your blood sugar.

I am keen for some morning sickness/all day sickness tips too i am suffering big time!! which i think is strange since i am only 4 weeks. This is my first pregnancy though so don't know what to expect!

I too have been struggling bit time, today seems a bit better though, don't know why. I have found fruit is helping me and ice blocks. Also chewing gum, but i did read somewhere that you shouldn't chew gum when pregnant when I was pregnant with my DS but I can't find it now.

tess840, you poor thing for it to have started at 4 weeks. Mine as at 6 weeks and last time went till 16 weeks. Hopefully that means it will finish early for you. I also find if I am more tired I fell worst. Plus I am eating everymorning before I get out of bed. That really helps....

Re: chewing gum.  Maybe it's to do with artificial sweeteners?  I remember being told at my ante natal class waaaaaay back in 2006 to minimise exposure to artificial sweeteners.  Also chewing gum can increase reflux.

Last time I took Maxalon which helped. This time (so far anyway) when I feel yuck I find a glass of cold water helps.
Good luck.

I'm struggling too, and feeling bad I'm so wiped and nauseous when I'm trying to play with my 14 month old DS. Min hit at about 6.5 weeks, same as last time. So if it goes the same way, I have about 10 more weeks of this to look forward to. I have some maxalon, but I also find  fizzy water and really simple savoury or slightly salty foods (white bread, thinly spread vegemite, Saos, cruskets) work a little too. Fresh cold fruit can be a godsend too.

I'm really struggling, I started off only having a bit of ms in the morning, now....it feels like its all day and very unpridictable.  I feel sick most of the day, eating small meals during the day is not helping.  I'm worried about how I'm going to get through Christmas. We have told both mothers, but don't plan to tell the rest of the family until we get to the 12 weeks due to my history of miscarriage.  Anyone got any ideas to curb the ms?

I am now almost nine weeks - and amazingly it is going really quickly... But this morning sickness is relentless!!... I've had maxalon and it didn't work... Has anyone else been prescribed any other medication that have given them some relief?... Seriously hoping this phase finishes up in 3 weeks!! Tried EVERYTHING else google has advised - small meals,  ginger, seabands - everything... Help!!

The biggest help to me has been keeping plain crackers (saladas for me) or cereal right by the bed to eat as soon as I feel hungry in the morning. Yes, sometimes that's at 4am. If you hate crumbs in the sheets (who doesn't?) then keep a towel or blanket and a small plate handy to contain the mess.
Eat small meals regularly, pre-prepare snacks as much as possible. Ginger beer - I've developed such a love for ginger beer that I'm pretty sure my kid will be born addicted. It almost always makes me feel better!

#12 littlepip

Posted 30 December 2012 - 10:39 AM

Thanks heaps for your tips squeakybee!! Ive tried that too!!... I was getting up at 4am to have another meal - still got MS... Tried ginger everything... Nothing has helped!!... I was all for no drugs then finally gave in to maxalon which did nothing... So hoping there's some relief out there eventually, well at least there will be in 7 months original.gif...

Hi Guys,

Have any of you heard of Hyperemesis Gravidarum. I had all of what you are saying, and yes I tried the sea bands, ginger, small meals, crackers, regular meals, maxalon and none of it helped me at all. The only thing that helped was going to my ObGyn and asking for Zofran. It's a non-PBS medication that is used for cancer patients who are going through chemo, and severe morning sickness.

I know it sounds full on, which it is, but I ended up on quite a high dose and Phenergan at night because I would role over and want to vomit from the movement... it can be pretty bad. Hopefully you won't need the nuclear level of medication that I was on but just wanting to validate those of you who are really struggling. It also cost me my job, as I couldn't function, even with the medication...

Here is a great site, which really helped me understand that I wasn't being a woos... http://www.helpher.org/ If this sounds like you, talk to your GP or ObGyn and I can tell you where to get it cheapest in Victoria (they post it, because it is more common than you think and they are used to multiple scripts/refills in the same lot).

There is also a support group on EB under specialist Pregnancy Support Groups.

Good luck gals... I had HG until 22 weeks and was fine until 23 weeks, when the pelvic instability kicked in. Not fun...

Christine

Let me know what you think... I hope you all get some relief soon...



#16 littlepip

Posted 30 December 2012 - 11:04 AM

Its definately not HG - just bad MS... I can keep food down and drink (it helps with the symptoms temporarily) I just feel awful all day... I'm not losing weight - I think it's just been a really long 6 weeks of feeling terrible and tired all the time!! Thanks heaps for your advice though!!

So I thought I might have missed out on morning sickness, I've been feeling pretty good....until now! I'm 7 weeks 5 days and the last 3 days have been full on! Nauseous all day, throwing up at least once or twice, pounding headaches. Oh dear! I hope this passes, I'm back at work next week!

#18 littlepip

Posted 01 January 2013 - 09:59 AM

to fellow morning sickness sufferers - I got different sized sea bands (kids size) and they are LIFESAVERS!! I didn't throw up all day yesterday... Serious instant relief!! Still not 100% but can eat and drink now and have it stay down original.gif was skeptical but they seriolusly work!! Good luck with finding something that works for you!!

#19 LO123

Posted 01 January 2013 - 06:16 PM

littlepip, where do you get the sea bands from. I think I might give them a go. Nine weeks now and just feeling awful. Go back to work tomorrow and just hoping I can get through.

Hyjacking your DIG!

Poor you!

I had hyperemisis the entire 40 weeks and the only thing that worked for me was Zofran wafers and salt and vinegar chips.

Good luck and try and rest when you can...

Just from the chemist original.gif they are like instant relief - DH couldn't believe i'd stopped whinging lol... Hope they work for you - dont take it away 100% but it's so much better!!

Hi girls
Sorry to hear more m/s! I never had it like this time around , I've just been put on Maxalon and phenergan (don't need script for), which has got me eating and drinking again. I could hardly function until I got these meds so visit your gp if you are finding ms really bad!

I had morning sickness for the first time over the weekend, I thought I had gotten away with it being 10 weeks tomorrow...


Seems to be mainly while I am in the car which makes my 45 min drive to work in the morning alot of fun! mellow.gif

Hoping its short lived like my first time around. Hope everyone else's mornign sickness goes away soon, its really no fun at all!

I've been nauseas and tired since about 7 weeks.  But the last couple of days the nausea especially has dropped off quite a bit.  Perhaps the placenta is doing it's thang now. With my daughter the morning sickness stopped around 10 weeks so that would be around now.


#25 littlepip

Posted 07 January 2013 - 08:46 AM

I'm 10 weeks today too livingbravely and I feel like a normal person this morning for the first time in 7 weeks!!... Fingers crossed it's not a fluke - touching lots of wood!! Would really like to start feeling good and enjoying this pregnancy (and having a clean house again lol)... PS I think the indentations from the seabands may take a while to disappear original.gif
