I'm down to once just before bed, but I definitely still have to take the zofran. Just wondering who else is still sick.

I am still on the Scop patches. I have to change them every 3 days and leave them off overnight just to test and I definitely still need them.

Me! I take one a day in the morning and sometimes another in the evening if I'm feeling particularly ill. I'm also taking Zantac 150, twice a day.

Question - do the meds take all the nausea/vomiting away for you or just take the edge off? For me, it just takes the edge off. I still feel nauseous most of the day.

I need to start taking Zantac again. I just keep forgetting to dig it out of my cabinet.


I'm not vomiting at all anymore, but I definitely still have nausea. Not anything really bad, mostly just kind of vaguely nauseated, unless I'm actually eating. About halfway through any meal I need to stop and just breathe for a few minutes. I'm also nauseated when it's been a while since I've eaten.

Yeah I'm not vomiting as often. I did vomit stomach acid the other morning but I hadn't vomited for a couple week prior. I suspect I'll vomit on occasion and have the nausea which is moderate most days, mild occasionally. I also have that weird yucky taste in my mouth which is not helping. I wish they made something for that. The only time I'm not nauseous is while I'm eating and shortly afterward. I get very nauseous if I haven't eaten for awhile.

I had heartburn once last weekend after hitting up a soul food buffet. I guess it was just a bad combo of food. I have to take a unisom everyday. It seems if I don't I get this yucky feeling while eating, especially in the evening. Sometimes my food stays in the back of my throat or sumn and just sits there until I burp. Then once I do that it slides down a little. Only thing that doesn't make me sick right now is burritos. Lol. No heartburn no nausea with those things. Luckily I'm in Los Angeles and I have my choice of good burrito spots.

LOL funny how burritos don't give you heartburn. Hot chips don't give me heartburn and you would think they would. I could eat tons of hot chips/Flamin' Hot Cheetohs and I'm ship shape. Weird.

Salsa won't give me heartburn, but fruit does. Go figure!

My heartburn doesn't seem to have anything to do with what I've consumed. It's completely independent of everything, it seems! lol

And for me, during pregnancy, my heartburn/reflux mainly manifests as nausea. *rolls eyes*

Nope! Thank goodness!

I actually stopped about 2 weeks before I should have as far as nausea was concerned, but I had a particularly bad episode of constipation that was WORSE than nausea, so I quit taking it and just powered through.

I feel pretty normal now.

I have only had to take Zofran 2 times in the past 3 weeks. Thank goodness because the constipation was more than I could stand,lol! I still get nausea from time to time and heartburn which I have been trying to control with tums. Nothing in particular gives me heartburn, I just get it sometimes. So happy the vomiting has stopped because a month or so ago I felt like I was dying...

I'm still taking Zofran. In fact, this is the first pregnancy where I have needed to refill it. I'm only taking it about once a day, but occasionally twice.

I quit the Reglan a few weeks ago. There are times I would take a Zofran if I had some but I just push through.

Later in pregnancy water will cause me heartburn...it's awful.

You know what's weird? Even with the zofran, this week I've had diarrhea. I've lost 4 lbs! >_< I tried stopping the zofran because of the constipation, but...yeah...it was way worse without it.

Depending on what I eat (salads and other fresh veg do this to me), I'll also get diarrhea even on the Zofran.

Never had that when I was taking it with Allison. I was stopped up all the way until after delivery. It's almost like I got an intestinal bug or something.
