Morning sickness?

So I woke up this morning with nausea. Its been 5 weeks and so far, Ive not had any symptoms,apart from tender breasts. Ive just been sipping Coca-cola, and it seems to be helping, but it comes back once I get my lips off the straw. 


Anyone else in the same boat? And how have you been managing it?

Hi there!


This is my second pregnancy - with the first, I had horrendous morning sickness all the way through - right until the day I delivered. I was on Diclectin and it took the edge off, but I found sucking on mints (strong ones) calmed my tummy. I found carbination in drinks to work a bit but honestly the more hydrated you are the better you will feel. Don't let yourself get dehydrated.


This time around, I am still nauseated... am still on Diclectin but it's not as bad as it was last time.. I am finding this time that If I fill my glass with a lot of ice, it's almost like my brain is focusing on the cold drink and I forget how horrible I am feeling ;)


If you are really struggling- tell your doctor- I know there are some meds in the states that are available... but always best to be honest with them about how bad it is. :)


I know in the states you can get preggo pops and such to help.

Hydrated, huh? Good to know. But im finding it difficult keeping water down,it doesnt taste good to me at all at this point. So how do I go about the hydration if I cant even drink water?

If you are having trouble keeping water down, definitely talk to your care provider. I know some people who have found watermelon the easiest thing to eat... and if need be to come up :( but it's water filled... might help a little??? but ya... if you can't even keep water you need some extra help.... best of luck!

My morning sickness hit me at exactly 6 weeks. The first 24 hours were pretty bad. After that I just had continuous nasuea for about 4 weeks. Gingerale definitely helped as well as jolly ranchers. I tried the sea bands but they didn't work for me.

9 weeks and I have been feeling better. I find that if I keep eating small meals every hour it really helps with the nausea. I have only thrown up once ... other than that, my symptoms seem to come and go. :-) how is everyone feeling this week?

I have had the worst morning, afternoon, evening sickness, which started at about the 5th week. I am 12 weeks and still am going through it.

 

HERE IS WHAT HELPED

5-8 weeks: I could only stomach OJ and carrots and toast

8-10 weeks: I was able to drink 7up and saltine crackers were my best friend 

10-current: i am now FINALLY able to drink water. Actually, that's all i drink now. 

Every time I felt nauseous, I had to snack on something. Although I have to force it down, it really helps.

 

FOODS I LOVE THAT HELP WHEN FEELING NAUSEOUS (staples in my fridge & cupboards)

I eat two slices of buttermilk bread w/ cream cheese every morning and boy oh boy is it good

frosted mini wheat cereal & milk

PB&J sandwiches

cantaloupe

fuji apples

cold bottles of water

 

FOODS THAT MAKE ME QUEASY

Fast food!

greasy foods

fried foods

sweets

 

THINGS THAT MAKE ME QUEASY

- smells! i hate anything that has a scent/odor to it. I now wash my clothes with an odorless detergent

- stuffy places make me miserable. I've learned that keeping a place well ventilated, helps my nauseousness. Always airing out the house and keeping a fan on really helps me feel comfortable

- clothes that make me feel like i'm suffocating. Since I took off my first trimester from work, I've been living in a tank top and panties. I'm most comfortable when I'm not wearing a bra and anything tight that adds pressure to my tummy. that extra pressure makes me nauseous
