    Oh you poor thing
    I don't want to be sitting here making you feel like you HAVE to wean, I'm very very pro-breastfeeding! But in terms of the big picture for all of you (you, toddler and new bubby) I think it is definitely worth talking to someone who knows more about the nutrition/energy side of things.
    You might be BF out everything that you manage to take in at the moment and if you start to chew through your own body fat stores you're going to be running on empty pretty quickly.

    I know its something that i might have to do, just wanted him to decide. Plus he is a terrible sleeper and breastfeeding him gets him to sleep. I dont know where to start looking for these people to help me. Would my gp be the one to talk to? (im only 7.5wks)

    I will prob be of no help, but all I can think of is 50mg of b6 a day, mylanta or gaviscon and only having extra iron if you need it. Cos I have heard preg supplements can make it worse. Sorry. This is prob unhelpful. Just wanted to also send some anti nausea vibes your way xxx

    This may be totally not allowed and is quite random but after surgery in January this year I was given some zofran in case of nausea. I only ended up taking 1, I have 2 or 3 tablets left, I know how expensive they can be. I haven't been able to throw them away so if anyone wants them PM me and I'm happy to post them! I know it's not a huge help but otherwise they will just go in the rubbish.

    Zofran did help me, but I took 8mg a day. Are you using wafers? If you are taking tablets and vomiting within 30 mins then they won't have been absorbed yet.

    Sorry if you can't afford the 8mg though, but I thought that you won't pay much more for 8mg wafers than 4mg. You will need a script for 8mg though, not just take two 4mg ones.

    Unfortunately if you had hg your other pregnancies then you were highly likely to get it this time as well

    Uugh bum. $75 for 10 is actually a pretty good price. I was paying 10 bucks a tablet.
    Have you tried the wafers? The ones you dissolve on your tongue?

    I'd probably start with your gp. Sometimes drs listen more to other drs so your gp might be able to contact the hospital on your behalf to arrange a standing appointment at the hospital for fluids like a pp said to get in before its as bad. And the hospital should also be able to liaise with the tertiary hospitals on your behalf to talk to a specialist. I found it tricky early on because the actual maternity dept didn't want to see me before 12 weeks. I also was told to drink sustagen three times a day for extra calories that would be absorbed quicker than food. Does it make any difference if you're able to lie down when eating and drinking?

    Sorry i edited my post, i have wafers. Yeah when i was pregnant with ds2 they were about $90 for 10 ($58 for 4). Its a good price from a cheapie chemist, but we cant afford $100 a fn for pills, even though id really love it if we could.

    I was booked into antenatal at 15 wks with ds2to try to manage it. The dr i saw was more worried about how i was going to have my baby (previous 4th deg tears) than in helping with with my HG.

    I am able to drink about two glasses of water at night if i go to sleep straight away. I cant sleep all day though. Anything milky makes me really really sick so id have trouble with sustagen (i tried up&go, which ended badly).
