I am pregnant with my second and constantly sick: Advice?

Hi, this is my second pregnancy, and I am having a difficult time; I’ve constantly been throwing up, and my taste buds are a mess. I can’t stand it; I feel like I’m in a hangover every day. I recently found out, and I am planning to go to my OB next week; I can’t explain what I am feeling right now. I just want to cry. This is different from my first

That sounds like hyperemesis gravidarim. It’s awful :disappointed: if it gets bad, ask about having a PICC line to stay hydrated

I had that problem my first pregnancy. I lost weight my first trimester and when I gave birth I only weighed 134lbs. My ob gave me a little white pill that had a pink outline of a pregnant lady on it. It worked wonders! I refused to take zofran because of the stories I’d hear so that was the only other thing they could give. Absolutly would suggest asking yours about it!

I had this and it was morning sickness times 10. I lost a lot of weight and couldn’t keep anything down for months. If they dont mention it then you should bring it up as a possibility

They should be able to give u meds for the nausea,I was horribly sick like this with my girls…it sucks,but most importantly try to stay hydrated

I have recently been in that boat… I hope you start feel better soon. My family is big into oils. I am not at all but ginger oil helped me sometimes and tons of peppermint. Best of luck and congratulations!!

Oh momma, I hope things get better soon! I was the same way with both my pregnancies and they were hell!! Nothing worked for me. No meds worked, no snacks or drinks, etc. I hope things get better soon and just try to get through it the best you can. If you need to go to the ER for fluids, definitely go.

I had major issues with my second pregnancy too. There’s these suckers called preggo pops. They did wonders for me. If you don’t want to be on meds I strongly suggest these. The same brand also makes tea and others things to help with vomiting while pregnant

Vitamin B6 25mg 3x/day helps relieve the nausea. Feel better soon. I am a Holistic Doctor. If I can be of further assistance…plz dont hesitate to msg me. Take care!!!

You can always call your doctor. The week of the Fourth of July I wasn’t able to keep anything down not even water or Gatorade. I ended up calling my doctor even after it was after hours. They called me in a prescription that I was able to pick up and start that weekend. I would definitely call in the morning or if it is too bad tonight you can try calling tonight.

I had Hyperemesis gravidarium with my second, that led to depression i could not eat or drink ANYTHING. It’s sucks it did go away at 25 weeks and multiple trips to the ER from dehydration and I also tried what felt like everything there is. From home remedies to several different prescribed medications Nothing helped.

I have two kids never a problem with nausea . Five years later I get pregnant again with my third child and he was the worst pregnancy ever . All the way from the beginning 1 month until nine months I had to be on medication because nothing helped not even home remedies or things over the counter …

I had hyperemesis gravidarum with my first…ended up in the hospital for 3 months. Towards the end I was okay though, it got better by itself. My friend had to have a pump inserted to regularly get nausea meds. She was miserable the whole time. Just keep telling yourself, its not permanent. Good luck mama!

I was sick the whole time for my second pregnancy, the Dr. Gave me some kind of medicine for morning sickness it helped a little, that was the only pregnancy that I was sick with.i have four kids now

The worst part of having a baby is all those things a woman has to go through and the men is has fun making them .Not fair is it ladies.Hope you feel better soon.

I feel your struggle. I lost weight up until my third trimester and vomited at least once a day every day from 5 weeks through 3 days after my son was born.

The only thing that worked for me was cbd and zofran. Mostly the cbd.

Oh girl… I felt the same way with my second, who was a boy that time. He made me sooooooo sick! I thought I knew what morning sickness was with my first but no… my second proved me wrong lol I didn’t start gaining weight until 6 months and finally it settled down. I wouldn’t eat for days at a time and when I did eat I was only able to take a bite or two before feeling sick. Finally the closer I got to the end of my pregnancy the more of an appetite I got and then finally blew up like a blimp lol

Every pregnancy is different, my 2nd was my most difficult, everything made me sick, even the smell of food cooking, dirty dishes were the worst. I had “morning sickness” through my entire pregnancy, I have always been overweight but I lost 58 pounds during that pregnancy (pre pregnancy weight until they weighed me in the hospital after she was born.) Make sure your doctor knows what you are dealing with and hang in there.

Did you test for covid?

I threw my guts up everyday until 12 weeks… There’s horror stories for all kinds of medicines, I took zofran for a while and it somewhat helped, but after taking it somewhat regularly it gave me really bad headaches… My baby didnt have any issue with it and if you really look into the zofran case studies, they’re sketchy and not the greatest… The thing that helped me the best is ginger root… The pharmacist at Wal-Mart told me about it, a big bottle out of the vitamin section was about $5 and it was my hallelujah
