So finally in my 13th week, and the morning sickness is as bad as ever-- so bad that I began vomiting blood last night. Needless to say this has totally freaked me out. I suffer from a congenital digestive disorder, and I've had a small esophageal tear in the past (July, following food poisoning), but this was a lot more blood than then, and did not not come up after the other stuff, but right along with it-- which I know is a bad sign. I spoke to my obgyn's office this morning and it was suggested that I go onto ranitidine 150mg to suppress the acid. I've already taken this a few times and it doesn't really help. I'm on my way to my gp for a referral back to my gastroenterologist. I don't understand why they don't give me something for all the vomiting... Wouldn't that help more? Really upset, as having been on stomach meds for so long I know that taking the zantac will prevent me from absorbing as many nutrients, and I'm already having a tough time with food... I had gastritis all august, and my reserves are really depleted as it is. The meds that I took prepregnancy are so much stronger than zantac though, that I also know it probably won't help me much. Just thought it would be better by now and I don't understand why this is so hard!
