    Hi ladies

    I'm so happy to be pregnant and wouldn't change that for the world, but I am going out of my mind with very bad nausea! this kicked in at 6 weeks and I have been on holiday for the last week and have to go back to work WEdnesday, and am not looking forward to it feeling like this - esp when everyone in the office drinks tea - the smell of tea makes me want to puke!:dohh:

    It's there all day and all night (not actually been sick) just a really strong feeling like I am. The thought of ALL food makes me feel ill and when I'm eating it's makes me gag as I chew and swallow. So saying eat often is really hard when the thought of it makes you feel yuk! I can only drink milk or water most of the time! I have been eating, as I know it's worse if I don't but it's like torture.....

    I certainly don't remember my last pregnancy being like this - I had a few waves of nausea but not constant like this! aaaargh!:hissy:

    anyone else like this - what do you do? Can't stand the thought of ginger tea either.......

    Cant stand ginger anything. Have you thought about trying the "Seaband"? It has great write ups. I have one. Only wore it once so far when i felt icky and it seemed to work. I am sure that nausea will kick in for me at one point.

    Mine started at 6 weeks, i was same only i got to point i was being sick couldnt keep liquid down, couldnt get appt at the docs as i wanted the anti-sickness tablets.
    i still have it off day but its no way as bad! i got those seabands, just waste of money for me, i still wear them but feel not done anything they keep moving out of place.

    I may have to try them, but not wanting to tell work yet - they may wonder why I'm wearing them, lol. Maybe I'll get away with long sleeves covering them?

    With Brooke i has horrible MS ... the best thing i found to keep it at bay was constantly eating popcorn .. either sweet or salted :lol:

    I know it seems crap now but youve only got a few more weeks to put up with it and it should start easing off

    My sickness kicked in around 5 wks all day and all night and have thrown up a few times. It's awful it feels like a food aversion - i have been away for the weekend something I booked as a surprise for my dh before i knew I was pregnant. I have dreaded meal times as I can't stand the smell of food, or to see food or watch people eating it.

    I find that i have to eat every hour - just something like a piece of toast or banana, or dry cream cracker. If i feel hungry then the sickness gets really bad and i start to gag. If i have to think about what to eat my sickness gets worse, i can't even shop for food or see adverts for food!

    I love being pregnant, but can't wait to feel full of energy and start to enjoy eating again. I feel like hibernating until 2nd trimester :rofl:

    you sound just like me mrstapster! I did the Tesco shop yesterday and it was horrible - surrounded by food!

    Ahava - you poor thing, I'm not as bad as you - not actually being sick (yet!) hope you feel better soon.

    I've really bad sickness since week 5 and been hospitalised twice for IV fluids due to dehydration, I'm now 15+4 and it seems to be getting worse, been signed off work for 8 weeks now and I only leave house for doctor appointments as don't have energy to do anything else. I'm also on cyclizine anti sickness tablets 3 times a day. Hope it gets better for you soon, it really is a horrible thing.:hugs:

    I have it terribley, I've been sick 3 times in the past hour. Probably consumed no more than 600 calories each day last week and I've lost 5lbs. I'm actually getting scared to eat as I just feel sick right through and know its probably just going to come back.

    Morning (all day) sickness is such a stupid thing - you need to be eating right for your developing bubs, but you can't with feeling so nauseous all the time!

    I just went to Tesco's to get some sea bands - put them on and half hour later I cooked dinner - grilled sausages, corn cobs, new potatos, and sat and ate the lot no probs! wow.

    I definately feel some relief from them - I'm not taking them off......just hope I can hide them under my sleeves at work.

    Ditto Loopdido!

    I just got my seabands from Boots this afternoon and the nausea has definately lessened. As I write this, I'm cooking sausages in the oven and the small hasn't made me gag yet. Only thing is that I have pressed them onto my points so hard I've left bruises aready! :rofl:

    Good luck to you darling. Whatever helps, eh? MS is misery that robs you of the joy of early pregnancy, doesn't it?

    :hug:

    I am a HUGE advocate of Seabands. I got mine a few weeks back recommended by a member here and havent looked back since. Dont get me wrong, I still sometimes feel sick but not the extent I was before. I'm able to eat when I'm hungry and that along with the Seabands keeps the nausea at bay :)

    Seabands...gotta love 'em!
