I have had morning sickness from 5 weeks I am 10 weeks now. When will it go away. I cant eat or drink without getting sick and if I vomit it just gets worse. Is there anything I can do to make it better or will it go away soon?

Try nibbling saltine crackers. I found that if I let my stomach get completely empty, the morning sickness was much worse. Saltines seem to be fairly easy to keep down with morning sickness.

Are you pregnant?f you are, it's normal. You eat foods that are favorable to your taste. Avoid eating too much, it can cause nausea and vomiting.

With my second pregnancy I was sick through out the whole 8 1/2 months(had to have a csection due to her position, she was sideways with her head tilted backwards!). It sucked then but I considered it a mixed blessing once she was born. I was so sick I never over ate. I'd force myself to eat the necessary amount of food, but was never tempted to over eat. I gained the healthy amount of weight and was able to take it off easily after giving birth. My son I was sick for the first month and a half to two months and then nothing. I over ate to high heaven and gained 70 lbs! He was a big baby too, almost 10 lbs.

I like to laugh about the morning sickness being an indicator to my daughter's personality. She's a bit of a spitfire/free spirit.

I assume your doctor isn't alarmed yet by that much weight loss. From what I've read women who are a little more overweight to begin with need to gain much less than someone who weighs less. I looked into this when ttc this time around because I've been dieting in order to get pregnant the past 14 months(lost 135 lbs altogether before getting pregnant). As long as your doc isn't alarmed, then that shouldn't be a problem. So for now try to see the bright side and just make sure you're at least eating enough for you and baby.

But here's some thing that helped me with my nausea. Crackers(the go to!), ginger ale(some people say drink it warm and flat but I drank it cold as is and it worked too), a shower(warm or cold, it varied for me), and simply just laying down for a bit. Heck, sometimes I got nauseous because I needed to eat, with my daughter I was hypoglycemic and that caused some of my nausea too. Good luck!

For me it has let up around 12-14 weeks in most pregnancies. This one was my easiest and I think it's because I ate a meal or snack pretty much around the clock. I always had protein and a little carbs with what I ate and ate about every 2 hours while I was awake. The Sea Bands motion sickness bands also helped me!

I hope you get over it soon!

That could very well be making the existing nausea worse. You should keep a food journal to make sure you're eating just enough to sustain you and the baby. I know with my daughter it usually made things worse if I didn't eat when I should have.

Has your doctor mentioned that there are meds out there to help you with your morning sickness/getting sick? I was very ill my first trimester into the beginning of my second trimester. So he gave me Zofran, it helps SOOOOO much! I don't get sick at all now.

Ask your doctor about vitamin b6, I've read a lot about it helping with morning sickness. But don't take it unless you've talked to your doctor first. Too much can be a bad thing too. As for your prenatals, try taking them right before bed. I found with my last pregnancy I got sick right away taking them and had to take them before I went to bed each night.

The doctor wont put me on it even though he has seen my weight loss and as for my prenatals i have told him about them making me sick all the time if i take them at night i am up and down all night getting sick and he still makes me take them (the same ones i have been taking)

The vitamins are necessary though, so bear with it. Try taking them with a meal. That's what I do now and it seems to work just fine. Everyone's pregnancy is different, so try everything you see suggested. Eventually you might find something that helps. I think the doctor isn't too concerned with the weight loss yet, but if it gets any worse maybe he will do something about it. The fact that he isn't concerned should show you that you shouldn't be concerned. Yeah that doesn't help the situation suck less, but for now it's the reality.

I've been getting nauseous at night for the past week(I'm not very far along) so I feel you on the night time sickness. I'm hoping that will change soon or that I will find something that helps.

really no advice other than ginger ale and saltines only things that remotely helped and even then didnt really( was sick all day everyday till about 14 weeks starting at 4 weeks) smell would make it even worse garlic was HORRIBLE & unfortuneately the fiancee loves cooking with garlic. on the positive side it should almost be over ( if its that bothersome i would say something to the doctor there should be something they could do/give you)
