    I heard it's quite common to vomit before/during/after labor. How manyof you had this?

    Is there anything midwives can give you to stop you being sick?

    I have a feeling im going to be one of the ones who end up puking all the time, and im dreading it! Just wondering if they give you something to stop it or you just have to get on with it?

    I did four times.

    Couldn't have cared less to be honest and I have real issues with being sick.

    they have no eating policy in my local delivery suite and so give you a tablet as standard as soon as you go in to stop sickness. might be worth asking about if it's not already a standard proceedure there?

    I threw up after birth. The nurse gave me something to drink and it did not sit well with me at all.

    With my first child I was very sick during labor, I threw up with almost every push! My next 2 children I never threw up once during labor.. before.. or after. I did get severe shakes after each child though.. I thought I was going to shake right off the bed!!

    Wow... Am I one of the only ones who not only didn't throw up during labour but was eating while in the later stages?

    I was sick during labour. I think it was the gas and air that made me sick though.

    I threw up after the birth the 1st time round....but i think it was just cos of the gas and air, shock, adrenaline, tiredness, pain etc etc all the things you can think of to do with labour lol. I was only sick once and it was a little bit :)

    :hugs:
