I am nearly 8 weeks pregnant and the dreaded M/S has set in.
It is so bad I can hardly stand, 24/7 nausea. I have been dry retching but am managing to eat at times. It started a week ago and seems to be getting worse.
But this nausea is unbearable. I had in in my first pregnancy (daughter now 8) from just over 6 weeks to almost 12 weeks. I was hoping I would be lucky enough to miss it this time, no suck luck. It is making me feel so lousy that I am having thoughts about terminating. For other reasons I am not sure I want another child at this stage (unstable relationship) and this M/S is making me want this pregnancy less. Maybe I would be more excited if I wasn't feeling so horribly ill.
Anyway Dr gave me maxalon but it made me worse. I asked about zofran but he said he would not prescribe that to me as there have not been enough tests done to determine it safe in pregnancies. Another Dr agreed at the centre agreed. I have been drinking ginger beer and taking ginger tablets. Yesterday I thought they were working but today I am really crook again.
I am meant to be starting a new job early Jan and am terrified that I will lose that if I am still sick by then. I am a single mum now so I NEED this job.
Anyone tried those travel sickness bands from the pharmacy??
Oh someone please give me a magic cure?!!
