I was wondering if anybody else gets dry heaving. (I do actually throw up food as well) but mostly its dry heaving and then its like I feel better when air (gas) comes out, kind of like a burp. TMI I know. But I think its weird. Its like I'm throwing up air. Better then food though---dried fruit is now off my list of things to eat as of last night.
i was always "dry" heaving in my 1st and 2nd trimester i think i have only actually been sick 4 times!! I think its worse to heave and not be sick ive started to feel sick again the past few weeks hope the morning sickness isnt coming back
Yes, I've gotten them a few times. I don't know if anyone else makes this distinction, but I think there's a difference between gagging and dry heaving. I'll gag when I brush my teeth or sometimes if I smell something really bad, but it's more shallow than heaving, and mainly in my throat. I never feel like I'm going to throw up when I gag like that (but sometimes afterwards it upsets my stomach and can get me closer to actually feeling like I'm going to vomit.) Anyone else think there's a difference?
With dry heaving, it comes from the stomach and is more of a whole body act. I think I'm actually going to vomit, go through the motions, but nothing comes out. My dry heaves, anyway, are not triggered by smells or seemingly anything outside me, but rather come only when I'm super nauseous on the point of vomiting. This morning I was almost sure I was finally going to vomit and I dry heaved THREE TIMES, just seconds apart, but nothing came up. Very strange.
I may be a minority here, but I actually think vomiting is worse. I hate the taste and trauma (for me, anyway :-) of the food coming up the opposite way and past my taste buds. The only advantage I can see of vomiting as opposed to dry heaving is that you can feel better after when you actually vomit. Anyone else feel this way too?
My nurse said if you drink more water (which can be quite a feat when you're often nauseous) the incidences of heaving or vomiting should be less or go away. But you have to be careful, if you drink it too fast that can make you sick too. I dry heaved one other time too, and (similar to the first woman who posted), each time it followed a time (about a half hour later) where I ate a lot of fruit. I find fruit is okay in small doses, and when I eat it after eating a protein or fat, but I think maybe when you eat a lot of it at once (or eat dried fruit, which is high in sugar) or eat it on an empty stomach, your blood sugar goes up and then crashes, and when it crashes is when you feel nauseous.
Ooooh I've been just like that! Although I also seem to bring up mucus from my stomach (think it may be some kind of infection in my nose or something, seem to be overproducing). When it's all gone my stomach starts heaving, but it can last for up to five minutes (not that long when you're not heaving with no space to draw breath) and it wont stop till it's all gone =/
Guess it's my 'clear out' or something... blehhh.
i am dry heaving and gagging all day long! i've been having m/s and queasiness for about 8 days now, and i've only physically thrown up twice. and as much as i HATE throwing up. (i cry like a big baby when it happens)... i've noticed once i do throw up, i feel better for about an hour or two.. so i'm at the point where i'd love to throw up just to get it out. but it won't.
i'm dry heaving over smells, and over nothing. probably every half hour i think. i wish a burp would fix it!
although, i find i am gassy from both ends (LOL), but burping doesn't make me feel any better.
