Dear friends, i am in my 13 week and i can't take it any more. something new everyday. 24/7 nausea(7-10 vomiting/day), tried zofran,rantac, ginger, mint(everything...). feels so depressed and disconnect from everything.. please pray for me and my family

Honey, I went through the same thing you aer going through. The only thing is the Zofran works for me. I am now 20 weeks and it is going away. I will pray for you!

Hold on! It will get better... I was miserably sick from weeks 5-15. I tried all sorts of things too... it seemed like a different thing worked on different days. Now the nausea comes and goes, but at least life becomes tolerable again! are you taking prenatal vitamins? At my docs recommendation, I discontinued mine and start taking flintstones vitamins instead.

I'm not having quite the same problems as you, but I can understand how you feel. I get overwhelmed thinking that some variety of this pain and discomfort will continue for many months to come. It is difficult to accept. I decided yesterday to temporarily trade in my pregnancy books for baby books. It's much nicer to think about the sweet little baby than about all the nuances of being pregnant.

I couldn't handle the nausea either, and mine wasn't even 'that' bad. It's awful, I know, but it will subside. Are you losing weight as well? Just realize that your baby isn't needing your nutrition right at the moment, into your 2nd tri the nausea will let up, (mine did around 15 weeks) your hunger will come back and then baby starts getting nutrients as the placenta takes over. Try to drink some water, Dasani water is all I can handle. It tastes better to me. Maybe it's the added magnesium and pota__sium, but don't dehydrate yourself, it just makes it worse.Did you try those wrist bands? Somewhere on this website is the ad for it.

DON'T BE SO OVER-DRAMATIC!!!! We all went through morning sickness, it's part of pregnancy. You have to learn to deal with it. When you get into your second trimester (for most woman) it will virtually go away. Stop whining about it and just get over it.

I'm so sorry that you're having such a rough time with everything. I can sympathize, however about your nausea. It's gotten so bad for me (i'm 16 weeks and 5 days), that my doctor has given me Zofran. All I can say or suggest is to keep eating and drinking, and just avoid the smells that make you nauseated. My mother also told me that Vitamin B6 is good to control nausea, perhaps talk to your doctor about a B complex vitamin? On a more informative side, I read in a magazine that women who vomit are more likely to have a v____al birth than those who don't. I guess the vomitting strengthens your tummy muscles. Take it easy sweety, save your strength. Try to look at the big picture, your expecting a bundle of joy! And remember stress is bad for you and baby, but venting is good for you! I will pray for you. Good Luck! :)

i know how you feel. i felt the exact same way untill just a few weeks ago. i was so sick and exahusted, almost every day i was questioning my sanity in thinking i could handle another baby. it got better, much better in fact. hang in there.

Well you asked for it and here it is .... DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO RUDE ?!?! I can tell right now that you are going to be such a kind, gentle, understanding mother (extremely sarcastic) What? When your child comes to you because they are sick, you're gonna tell them to suck it up? Get over it? It'll eventually go away? you are seriously gonna need to learn some compa__sion. As for S, hang in there ... as my mother always told me (in a kind and supportive manner) "this to shall pa__s" try to focus on the good stuff, and the impending baby that will brighten your days like nothing ever has before. Good Luck to all of you ... seriously, and I will pray for you all :)

to the person who wrote the last reply - thank you!! "S" - I know what you are going through. I was throwing up ALL DAY LONG. I am at 14 1/2 weeks and doing a little better. And to"...", yes we all go through morning sickness, but for some women it is worse than others. Even tolerable. But when you lose 10 pounds in two weeks because you're throwing up so much, morning sickness gets difficult. Of course I will pray for you, S. I hope all goes well. Just know that this is one of those things where time really does heal!

have you tried marijuana? It is a natural anti-nausea medicine, and can be really helpful if steeped for about 5 minutes in boiling water to make a tea (it won't make you high that way). I know it is illegal, but it is worth a try if you can get hold of it. A lot of pregnant women swear by it for allowing them to keep food down. Just don't overdo it, because like any medicine it will affect the baby if abused. There are plenty of websites out there with suggestions for how much to use and how often. Anyone reading this post, please don't take this the wrong way and start a fight. I just think that it could be of help, it really is a miracle cure for a lot of things. S, I'm not saying you should or shouldn't try, it's just a suggestion. I really hope you start to feel better soon, just a couple more weeks, hang in there!
