    Kate 1990- yeah the multivitamins def make it worse- I think it's just too much on an empty stomach. I'm still trying to take a small Folic acid everyday. Unfortunately it's the iron I need as I'm anaemic but the Gp said them alone when make sickness worse so to try and do without until 2nd trimester. But that doesn't help with the head rushes and dizziness. Glad you've found a good multivitamin. Xx

    This is so true. This is my 3rd time going through HG and most of my friends just don't get it still. It took until almost throwing up in my best friends car the other day for her to get it. But 3rd time around my mum finally gets it. She Has been really trying to help me with my sons and really understanding.

    I had no break last night. The vomiting wouldn't stop, I only got a few hours sleep. I'm really glad my oldest has kindy today so I can have a nap while my 2.5 year old naps.

    ^ this.
    Even my DP said why don't you just have a glass of water and just not throw up. (As if I had a choice)
    I went to the ED last night and had IV saline and potassium. They gave me an apple afterwards but that came back up...
    I am vegan and lactose intolerant so can't have zofran (but im seriously considering breaking a huge moral code and taking it).. I can't live like this, it's unrelenting and overwhelming
    I'm glad I'm not alone.

    Dr has upped my zofran today and I've eaten some biscuits and a bottle of Gatorade- big achievement! I'm taking x2 4mg wafers a day now. And he perscribed a bigger box so 10 wafers cost $55.

    That is crap -zofran, almost life-changing/saving being so expensive. Mummyx2, I lived on Up and Go when it didn't become 'Up and Went.'

    Almai - what does Zof have in it that is an animal product, out of interest?

    Peanut M - oh, the memories. Waking at night to vomit - what joy.

    Poor old Kate Middleton with all those nurses to look after her, keep her hair out of the bucket and design a liquid diet she can tolerate. Even then, I do feel for her. I wouldn't wish an HG pg on anyone.

    Hang in there, gals...

    Zofran contains lactose.. Used to help bind the wafer together. Even the cheaper brands contain it
    But it's looking to be my only option.. I'll see how I go in the next 2 days before I'm due back at work.

    Hope everyone is going ok.

    Ooh just looked at the side of my packet of odansetron wafers and it states... Gluten free, lactose free!
