Ok so I had the WORST reaction to zofran last night. My heart started racing, felt like palpitations. Then I felt short of breath. Thought I was gonna pass out. I am cheap and I didn't go to the ER because its rather expensive, so I just rode it out. I did some research and it isn't that uncommon for ppl to experience those side effects.

I'm really bummed out ladies. That was my last option to deal with the MS. I'm back at square one. I'm getting so depressed. I haven't felt well in about 4-5 weeks. I am so happy to be pregnant. I just wish I could actually enjoy it a bit. I have no energy. It's like the life has been zapped right out of me. My SO is really stepping up and taking care of the cleaning, really everything actually. He's really a lifesaver. Just wish I could feel "good" again.

So Sorry about the bad reaction. Without my zofran I could not function at all. I feel the same way you do, I am happy about this baby and wanted it, but up to this point haven't enjoyed much of it at ALL. Glad your SO has stepped up and helped out. I am sure that is a great help. I know without my dh I would really be in trouble. He doesn't do much cleaning, but doesn't complain when I can't . He does alot of food related stuff for me because I can't stand ANY smell. Haven't been to the grocery store for over a month.. I hope you start feeling better soon because I know your misery(((hugs)))

I hope that you start feeling better soon! I am feeling the way you are WITH the zofran, and will until I'm not pregnant anymore. :/ I'm really hoping it goes away soon for you though!

I'm sorry you had a bad reaction and that you're feeling so bad. Luckily you're in your 11th week and if you're like the average woman, you should start feeling better in the next couple weeks. According to my OB, MS peaks around 10-11 weeks and then most women start feeling better soon after. That's what happened to me with my first two pregnancies. With the last one I was on Zofran and still sick for the entire pregnancy. I'm hoping and praying this pregnancy is more like my first two.
