So remember my post about should I be concerned that I do not have any morning sickness.... Well it is here with vengeance!
I haven't been able to keep down anything but soup for two days and even with keeping it down I keep dry heaving(sorry tmi). I have tried preggie drops and crackers in bed but no luck with either really helping.
Any advice so I can try to avoid Zofran? It makes me feel so out of it and sleepy...

I like ginger ale when I'm feeling sick, but I know it doesn't work for everyone.

I have recently started drinking watered down V8 Splash. I dont know why it helps but it does. I also have been putting ice on the back of my neck. I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks ladies! I know I need to keep something more substantial down bc I was very dizzy when I woke up this morning. Crackers have been the only thing I can munch on.

I dont get ms too bad but i've noticed that usually the only time i do is when i go too long without eating. So i try to make sure that I eat as soon as possible when i get up in the morning and then small snacks/crackers until lunch...small lunch then crackers/snacks before dinner....this usually works for me.

Sea-Bands have really helped me as well as eating small & frequent meals.

I do not have any advice.. but bless your heart. The first week I began my prenatal pills I was sooo nauseous. Come to find out it was the pills I had picked out. After a week of unstoppable nausea, I finally got new ones and it has been so much better. Baby #1 nor this one have made me throw up... YET! Thinking about you. I know everyone recommends Ginger.

I will definitely have to give ginger ale a try. I have been trying to eat but even scrolling through fb and seeing pictures of food starts me gagging...

Just had a break in nausea so I am trying to eat some yogurt, hopefully it will stay down.

Thanks for all the kind words!

You can find sea-bands at CVS for about $10. They are wrist bands that place acupressure on your wrists. They don't work for everyone but is definitely worth a try Just ask the pharmacy where they are located in the store. They were found tucked away at the very bottom of an aisle at my CVS.

Thank you! I will look for those.


I called my midwife and they are calling me in phenergan and it is a category C drug. Should I refuse it?

We're past the thalidomide days, but I'd try other methods before taking any meds (the bottom line is that it's generally safe, but used as a last resort). Like ginger ale I didn't even try it until about week 8 (I endured nausea for a month) and couldn't believe I hadn't realized it sooner.
