Im 7wks pregnant and have been in bed for just on
3 wks. At first I couldn't keep anything down until I
started on Zofran (odanzatron) 8mg BD & maxalon
in the middle. The vomiting has eased with the medication
but not the nausea. It's CONSTANT! Not one second
goes by when I don't feel sick. I can't function at all.
Just to have a shower exausts me and I litterally don't
sleep a wink at night.
Im taking Vitamin B6. Trying to drink peppermint tea.
I put lemon juice in my water. I try to eat small
amounts often. But all I can tolerate is dry
biscuits & cold toast. I'll go insane if I have to eat
one more dry biscuit or another piece of toast. I
really want this to end. My poor husband is doing
everything he can to help juggle our 2year old. As
well as trying to work over time for the $$ & keep the
house in order. I feel so bad for him, he's so tired. He
says it doesn't matter and takes it in his stride. He's such
an Amazing husband.
But now that I can't work financially we Arnt
coping very well. Take away my wage and then add the
cost of my medication = impossible. $38 for 4
Zofran tablets because there not on the PBS. I even
tried halving them because I'm on the highest dose,
but I went back to vomiting.
The Dr said I'll probably be like this until 12-14wks.
I was sick every day for 21weeks with my daughter,
But not anything like this. I just had maxalon and I
could still function & work. Is it possible I'm going to
Feel better before 14 weeks?
Im just not sure how much more financially,
physically & emotionally I can take. Not to mention
all the things my Beautiful two year old is missing
out on. She's going crazy being cooped up in the house.
How have you dealt with really bad all day pregnancy
sickness? I'm struggling to see the light at the end of
