Has anyone had to use them this pregnancy or previous pregnancies?
I get migraines this pregnancy and with them come constant vomiting. I have meds for the migraine and the vomiting but I can't keep them down. Normally when this happens the dr sends me to the hospital for fluids and meds through the iv. I begged today for another solution. If these suppositories can make me able to keep down fluids for the rest of the night she said I don't have to go in, but the next time I throw up go straight to the hospital. I am about 45 minutes in and have kept down a few sips so I am very hopeful. I would love to hear if they have worked for you girls?

Not this time, but I used them in my first pregnancy. The hyperemesis lasted the entire 9 months with her, and I eventually started using the suppositories if I couldn't afford to be incapacitated that day. They didn't always work perfectly, but you can't throw them up, so they were more effective than oral meds, and once in the hospital for fluids was enough for me, so I was willing to try anything! My advice would be to go sloooow with the fluids, don't try to rehydrate to quickly, and hopefully you will sleep soon and keep everything down overnight. Good luck!
Thanks so much for the feedback ladies. I'm so glad you are not needing to use them through this pregnancy and hope it continues that way for you both. I have gotten several hours of sleep and have kept down some fluids. I woke up so thirsty but am definitely taking it slow. My nurse even called this evening to see if they was working for me. I was very surprised by her calling but so thankful to tell her so far so good.
