To Vomit during labor/birth? Ok, odd question I know. I have a verifiable emetophobia (fear of vomit/vomiting) and this is something I want to be prepared for. If it turns out that I am a lucky one that does happen to do this, I'll need a couple weeks therapy to get past it. Not Cool.

So basically, do I need to have my therapist on speed dial when it gets to be near the big day? lol

Thanks!

I was never going to have kids due to the vomit thing. But my phobia has gotten manageable over the years and I think I'll be ok. I've been told it's always different when it's your own kids. Here's to hoping! lol

I've been really lucky during this pregnancy. No ms or vomiting. Nothing like that- just a little indigestion.

I had a C-section and because of my fear of needles and blood, I was throwing up before the nurse even tried to put the IV in my arm. After I had my son, the first time I went to hold him, I vomited from the anesthesia. But I got over it.... But it does happen...

It is very common, I vomited throughout labor due to the epidural. It was awful.

I was gagging with both boys and had to have the bucket, they gave me meds to help with it I also hate puking and am scared to do it or see it lol I will cry and make myself go to sleep if I feel sick but since having kids I still hate to do it but when the boys do it I clean it up and try not to think about it... If dh is home he is the lucky one to deal with it lol but ds1 gets car sick so I see it a lot...also I puked after having ds2 from the pain meds

I have never puked during labor, but have came very close to it. It was worse when I got my epidural.

I threw up also. I'm pretty sure it was the meds though. They were in the midst of stitching me back up after my c/s and I was so afraid my guts would pop out!

I threw up the nurse called it sick at 6 because it happens so routinely you throw up when you hit 6 CM. I am still the only person I know that was allowed to eat up until delivery at the hospital I delivered at trust me after 6 CM I didn't want to eat at all.

It IS common, but I never even got close to throwing up when I was in labor with DS. But in all seriousness, you may want to get some therapy before the baby is born to discuss coping strategies for when your baby throws up on you at some point in the future, because that one IS bound to happen.

I did twice. It came on very suddenly both times. Didn't really know it was going to happen until it happened.

I did not puke, I fell sick because of the meds (im opting for no meds this time). But a really cold facecloth to the back of the neck helped a lot.

I do not have a strong stomach, but despite my fear of needles and my nerves, I did not vomit or even get nauseous before, during, or after my planned c-section

I felt close to getting sick during the beginning of my c-section, but I think it was nerves. They gave me zofran in my IV and I was fine from that point on. Maybe you could talk to your doctor about approving zofran ahead of time so that they can give it to you when you need it in the hospital? Also, your OB might have other suggestions on how to deal with it!

I did tell them ahead of time that I couldn't have morphine (because it makes me really sick) and that I didn't want stadol for pain management because I had heard so many stories about hallucinating, dizziness and vomiting from it (My sister has the same stomach sensitivity to morphine and was sicker than a dog on stadol when she had my nephew a month earlier, so I'm glad I made that decision even though I didn't know about her experience until long after) Apparently Demerol (sp?) doesn't bother me which is good to know for future surgeries because I've had some horrible recoveries in the past due to morphine.
