Preggie pop drops??? Do they work?


Hey ladies. I have this morning- all day- sickness and I was wanting to know if anyone has used the preggie pop drops and if they really work?? I keep kids at my house during the day and it just sucks that I am running to the bathroom all the time and that I feel so bad.. I am very glad for the reason I am doing this but I don't like feeling this way. Just wondering if anyone has any tips. I try to eat little things all the time so my stomach don't get empty and I drink lots of things but that don't really seem to help me.. I am gonna ask the Dr if I can get something to take but I have not been to the Dr yet. I am almost 7 weeks now.. Thanks!

I had them, but my morning sickness was so bad (mild hyperemesis) they didn't really work. I think it's more of the sucking that causes you not to feel sick. I used them after my sickness wore off for the odd nausea waves and they did work. I would say use them for smaller nausea waves. Try saltine crackers and ginger ale as well.

Sorry it's been so rough hun... Here are a couple things I've heard can help (or at least take the edge off)-- that I read about in my pregnancy book:

Extra B-6 (25mg daily)
Ginger (tea, pills or drops)

If it's really bad, there are some meds the doc can prescribe.

Hope your feeling better soon hun!!!!

They worked for me but they irritate my mouth so I save them for when I'm driving.

They do work, but Jolly Ranchers do the same thing, and are much cheaper. The more sour the better

They helped me for waves of nausea.. but then, I never throw up, haven't since I was 12 or so. They did make me feel a bit better... but as previous posters said, Jolly Ranchers would probably work just fine..

I ordered B-Natal suckers online.. They were $22 with shipping. They work, but I don't know if they were worth that much, considering peppermints helped me too

Don't take reglan, especially if you are nursing as it passes through breast milk. There is a case now before the courts where this drug is being majorly attacked for causing irreversible nerve damage. My midwife prescribed it to me (I found this crazy).

I am drinking a lot of medicial pharma grade peppermint tea and that is helping. Pricey, but helping. The B vits also help. Try sucking on mints, too.

I feel for you hun. NOT fun. I am feeling like crap day and night.
