I am currently 11 weeks and i have been diagnosed with SEVERE morning sickness..that has put me in the hospital and left me very dehydrated. They have out a picc line in me and i recieve IVs twice a day for 8 hours on top of all the nausea medicine that is considered safe for pregnant women. Is there anyone else going through this?? Can anyone give me any kind of advice?? I am in desperate need of someone to help me
Im so sorry! my friend went though that in her first tri, and it didnt matter what she did.. and actually shes going through it again now that shes in her third tri!! good luck!! i snack pretty regularly throughout the day and its worked really well for me the only time i get to feeling sick anymore is about 30min after i take my prenatal.. i eat lots of oatmeal, peanut butter toast, and i drink alot of ovaltine and water!!
Thank you I really am having a rough time with this pregnancy. I am going to try that ovaltine idea..I cant take prenatals only flintstone gummies. And i cant even keep water down..but I have to say that its getting better. Im drinking orange juice and its staying down. I really hope this doesnt come back in the second trimester...
Try spearmint tea. When I was a kid and had an upset stomach with throwing up, that's what my mom would give me. I tried it when I was pregnant with DD and had all day "morning sickness" and while it didn't make it totally go away, it did ease it.
