Ugh, hoping I wouldn't get m/s...

I haven't actually thrown up yet, but I can tell it's coming. Last time, I didn't get m/s until exactly 6 weeks, which is tomorrow this time. I'm trying really hard not to let that mental part come into this and to let the symptoms come without bias.

For the last couple days, I haven't been hungry for much and everything I made didn't seem good to me. Talking about food makes me queasy. Today, I can't even bring myself to eat or even make it, knowing I won't eat it. I'm getting by on saltines, coke, and snickerdoodles :-p I'm thinking about getting some carnation instant breakfast shakes just to get some protein and carbs. Anyone else have any tips for the m/s?

Sniff a lemon or take a quick little suck. It usually helped when I was feeling queasy.

Does unisom and b6 come together in one bottle or did you take them seperately? I've been taking antihistimine to sleep since my OB said it's safe to take while pregnant. I know that doesn't help with m/s though. I had to take zofran from 6.5 weeks to 16 weeks w/ the twins, but I don't have another OB appointment for almost 2 weeks.

I had m/s pretty bad from about 6.5-11.5 weeks. I threw up every single night and there wasn't much I could eat. I essentially became a vegetarian because meat just smelled and sounded awful. I ate a lot of noodles, crackers, and soup. Some of the best items for me were Vietnamese pho and other hot noodle soups, especially Asian ones (but I love those normally too!). Since I had no energy to cook I also subsisted on Amy's frozen dinners - the vegetable lasagna worked really well for me.

Other than that, the standard advice worked OK - try to keep something in your stomach all the time, but don't get FULL - etc. I also got some Phenergan from my OB and it helped some of the time. If it gets really bad, I'd call and see if they'll give you something.

I had to take zofran with both my pregnancies.

Hi Kate -



I don't have any tips as I've never had m/s.

Thanks everybody. I may call for a prescription. Problem is, I'm changing OB's and don't see the new one until 9/29. I don't know if the specialist I saw on Tuesday would be willing to prescribe zofran or not. My insurance wouldn't cover it until I had tried 3 other kinds of meds. It was the ONLY thing that worked when I was sick from 6-16 weeks with my twins. If I can't keep down my progesterone, that is a problem! I wonder if they've started making a generic zofran in the last 2 years...
