    Default Just when I thought the ms was going away

    I'm 12 weeks and have been feeling nauseous since 6 weeks and vomiting pretty much everything since 7 weeks. Been great for the extra few kilos I've been carrying around :0
    At 11w +1d I had my worst day ever, I couldn't leave the bathroom, then I had 4 days vomit free. I couldn't believe it. I thought whohooo, it's all over.
    Then the nausea started again and hello vomiting. I've not been able to keep anything down for the past two days, and I feel so bad
    Anyone else got worse, got better, then got worse again?
    The four days off were nice, very nice, but also kind of cruel, lol.
    Sorry for the vent, but I am soooo over this now.
    I keep reading posts from people saying that theirs didn't go away until 16 or 20 weeks, or that it came back at 32 weeks. Noooooooo.

    It does that - go away then come back again!! I've had bad ms since week 6 too, but last week I had a few really good days and thought "yaaaaay! Maybe it's gone!!" but alas......

    Have u spoken to a gp about it? I went to my gp a couple days ago for a sore throat, and when I described my ms, he put me on zofran and boy has it helped!! I still have nausea, but it's really helped with the vomiting, so I'm managing to keep food and liquids down, which I'm sure bub is happy about

    Hi jo7,
    Yes, I've been to my GP. She gave me maxillon, which have done nothing and zofran hasn't been great. The only thing that seems to take the nausea away (for a while anyway) is the vomiting. I feel sick if I eat, I feel sick if I don't eat...
    I've tried the ginger and vitamin b6 tablets too, and lemon in my water, but all to no avail. A livesaver iced lolly sometimes help, I think it must be the sugar.
    I certainly feel for everyone else out there going through the same thing

    I'm so sorry to hear nothing's helped! I'm sure u've tried the constant snacking on crackers throughout the day, specially first thing before u get out of bed in the morning?

    I think it's a matter of finding what works for u - the ginger and b6 tablets did nothing for me, neither did ginger tea or ginger in my food. Peppermint tea helps calm my tummy somewhat, but usually AFTER I've puked. My last pregnancy, the only thing that helped was chocolate paddle pops!! Doesn't help this pregnancy unfortunately

    I really hope you feel better soon. I know some women get ms a throughout their pregnancy, fingers crossed not us!!

    Constant nausea is the WORST, I had morning, noon & night sickness the entire 9mths with DD1 (I had HG) but only got 2 weeks of mild nausea with DD2, Vomitted for the first time with #3 last night. Everyone is different but I find the busier I am the less sick I feel, mind over matter so to speak. Hard not to think about it though when your lunch is threatening to land in your lap while you work

    mine varies...
    I'm 20 weeks, and it's still incredibly bad. I take ondansetron (same drug as zofran) every day, and if i go more than about 30 hours without taking it then I'm back to constant vomiting.
    Still have the occasional bad day even whilst taking it though.
    Hope it improves for you!
