I experienced some nausea between weeks 5 and 7... but nothing like i've had this past week! It's been so bad that I find myself not eating because I can't bring myself to think about food I have my first midwife appt on Monday, but I've been "told" that Gravol is the same as an pregnancy anti-nausea med called diclectin. Only difference is it doesn't have Vitamin B6 in it. And so with that said these past couple days I've been taking half a tablet of gravol with food whenever needed. It has helped, thank goodness! If you're anything like me, eating is a task... but trying to get some food in every 2 hours does help!
I have it too, 24/7, and it's no fun...but it does get better. Usually starts improving between week 10-12, and goes away between week 12-14....
In the meantime just try to live your normal life even though you feel crappy, I find it helps pass the time. :-) I've never felt this awful, not with any of my previous pregnancies...but if I keep doing the normal stuff...go to work... cook dinner.... bd with hubby ...smile...go to the gym even if all I can muster is a half-assed ride on the bike....
It all helps the time pass.
I had the same thing. Finally got over it this week. I find that having a good breakfast, small snacks every 2-3 hours, plenty of fruits and veggies, and sipping on water all day long really does help. A good source of protein as a snack before bed is good too. I usually have a couple slices of brick cheese or a handful of peanuts...I've heard that ginger snaps cookies can help too. Hope u get to feeling better!!
I work full-time and have all-day nausea, so my doctor prescribed Zofran. It has helped immensely and he said it's totally safe. My prescription states that I can take it every 6 hours, but I have found that just 1 a day in the morning helps me get through the day.
