I had a little bit of morning sickness with DD, but nothing too bad. With this pregnancy I am soooo unbelievably sick! It starts in the middle of the night, waking me up, and lasts until evening, where I get a short reprieve. I am so also beyond exhausted. Yesterday I took a 4 hour nap from 1-5 and then went to bed at 10 and slept all night. I am graduating next week and supposed to be job hunting, but I can barely function. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do for some relief?
I was really sick my first and second trimester. Make sure you stay hydrated. My dr also told me to eat really starchy foods, liked mashed potatoes, plain pasta,etc. it does help. Also if its too bad, ask your dr about Zofran. It was prescribed to me at 14 weeks and helped a bunch.
You can ask your doctor for a prescription to help with your morning sickness. But with my first I never had any relief. I was throwing up day and night till about 4 1/2 months. I lost 15 pounds as well. So now they are offering this prescription to help it.
Oh Im sorry, I lost 15 lbs maybe more, at the start of this pregnancy bc of the all day sickness too. I would eat saltines...it helped a bit. The doc. also gave me some meds. for the nausea, but they told me it was normal and that it wouldn't harm the baby in any way, we're really not supposed to gain much weight til later on in the pregnancy. But yes, I know its rough, I still dont feel 100% and Im almost 7 mnths along. Hope you get to feeling better soon though!
