Im 6 weeks pregnant am either throwing up, or suffering extreme diarrhea, all day and all night. I am so TIRED! When is this going to get better?
tlkittycat1968 responded:
Usually around 12 weeks.

If you're unable to keep anything down (food or liquids) see your doctor right away or you risk becoming dehydrated.
babyj1017 responded:
I agree with PP. Typically the morning sickness peaks around 8-9 weeks and then will start tapering off. I also agree with speaking with your doctor. If the nausea/diarrhea is extreme, there are anit-nausea medications like zofran you can safely take during pregnancy.

Hang in there... it does it better and it's all worth it in the end!

how far along were u when you started the diarrhea?
PittmanOfLaMancha responded:
Depending on how severe your sickness is, you may have a condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum. From , "HG is a debilitating and potentially life-threatening pregnancy disease marked by rapid weight loss, malnutrition, and dehydration due to unrelenting nausea and/or vomiting with potential adverse consequences for the newborn(s)." I had HG for the first 16 weeks of my pregnancy and still feel it sometimes at 29 weeks. Please do check out the Hyperemesis Research Foundation website at . Their site provides a lot of information, resources, and support for women with HG.
KLN777 replied to PittmanOfLaMancha's response:
If you think you're dehydrated, there is no shame in going to the ER for IV fluids. I also had HG with my last pregnancy and had to go to the ER several times. The dehydration can turn into a cycle. You throw up, so you get dehydrated so you throw up... The IV fluids can help end the cycle and there is medication they can give you to help. Definitely see a doctor in some way and get some help. That isn't good for you or your baby.
PittmanOfLaMancha replied to KLN777's response:
I agree with KLN777. I had to get fluids in the ER, and they also were able to give me anti-nausea medicine via the IV. That really helped, as I couldn't even get my anti-nausea pills down by that point. Breaking the cycle helped me to get back on track. Hope things go well for you.
