    just wondering if there more natural remedies for m/s that I am not trying. I have tried the crackers and preggie pops and peppermints and all kinds of things and now my m/s meds aren't working anymore? Am I just doomed with m/s and no solutions?

    Have you tried travel bands? They don't seem to work for everyone, and they aren't exactly a 'cure', but they've taken the edge off for me (I'm having to wear them all the time though, even in bed at night!).

    Before I started taking meds I was using dried sugared ginger, you can get it at any herbal store or even ginger tea. It was the best thing that worked before meds

    Oh man if you were Canadian I'd say go on Diclectin right now, it's the only thing that has saved me and has been around for 25+ years. If you wanna go natural, maybe you should try going to an herbal store and asking what they refer for morning sickness?

    Aww thanks love! I try to be :) life is a bit easier when you can see the positives in things. Here's a positive note for you lol I read a study online that said the more morning sickness a mother has the less chance of miscarriage and complications there are. YAY! You're gonna have a very healthy little bean! :hugs:

    I feel like I am but with the meds I have taken I kind of worry. I took reglan but was taking basically one a day and I could have up to 3 a day but didn't want to do that to my little bean and I went to the ER for dehydration and had a IV drip for 3 hours so I am thinking the effects from the meds are far less then not being able to eat or drink. Ughhh the joys of m/s!!

    Leigh- He reads into things sometimes ...he is not a doc and not a pharmacist and I actually asked the pharmacist about it and she says its probably the safest things next to reglan but reglan has bad effects if taken too long and I am now on promethazine and its a class c but is used in pregnancy . I am really debating not taking anything anymore and just dealing with the dry heaves and throwing up. I am so lost right now and my feelings are so mixed. I really think zofran is a wonderful thing. Don't worry Leigh :)

    The active ingredients in Diclectin are doxylamine succinate and vitamin B6

    Zofran is completely safe durring pregnany. I've had it with my last two pregnanies. my OB whom I trust very much prescribed it and I was given a very high dose of it once in the ER last pregnancy when I had some kind of food poisoning. :)

Mine are almost 9, 9, and 5. (my first two are 11 months apart). I'm kinda hoping this one is a set of twins lol, I've been the sickest with this pregnancy!
