    Default All day sickness! Help!!

    Ok so since Thursday last week I have pretty much only eaten crackers and dry special k cereal.

    I am on maxalon and b6 tablets and have sickness bands on and the nausea just keeps on coming.

    The vomiting has stopped (for now) however the nausea, it seems to be worse after I have eaten and I feel the best first thing in the morning before I eat. And i am only eating very small amounts....I have been in bed all weekend and dreading how I will cope at work tomorrow.

    Any suggestions? Thanks ladies X

    Hi, I'm 13 weeks and have just come out of my all day nausea thankfully.
    I can sympathise as it is debilitating!
    The only things that worked for me was to not let myself get too hungry, even though sometimes it was almost impossible to eat. Also icy poles were a god send. I took maxillon about half an hour before I ate and it seemed to help but only a little bit.
    Hang in there! It's tough but worth it!

    I found maxalon did not help so changed to zofran.

    Had it in the morning and had to wait 15 mins before moving.

    That gave me just enough to get through work 3 days of the week. At home with the toddler I just lived on the couch.

    Food wise - could not eat much. Lost about 4kg. Even now at 28 weeks I get MS in the morning (totally tolerable compared to before).

    Hope you feel better soon. It sucks so bad.

    Can I just say I deeply sympathise for you both. I am 34 weeks on Tuesday and thankfully my morning sickness...or all day sickness stopped around 18 weeks. I had it worse this time than with my other two not sure why, perhaps because different dad and i'm somewhat older this time. I found the zofran left a bad aftertaste in my mouth so that put me off using it...all i can say is regarding food, the blander the better...hopefully it passes soon for you.

    Yes to bland food. Except pickles. Pickles were good.

    Maxalon hasn't worked for me either so my GP prescribed promethazine hydrochloride today.

    I had hyperemesis gravidarum with both my pregnancies. I took zofran (maxolon did nothing) and restavit. Restavit is a category A drug that you can buy over the counter so perfectly safe (same category as maxolon). It's actually a sleeping tablet but is recommended for treating nausea in pregnancy (has been used in the uk and USA for years but only more recently in Australia). It was a huge help for me and I know a lot of other ladies with HG swear by it. You can start with quarter/half tablets before bed as it can make you drowsy but you adjust after a few days.
    Big hugs hun, all day sickness is horrible.

    You poor thing. I have had severe morning sickness in all my pregnancies. It's awful.

    Some ideas. Ginger is always I good one if you can stomach it. Gins gins super strength lollies are great - lots of real ginger in them. Drinking peppermint tea or ginger before eating helped me a little. Scent of fresh citrus, like fresh cut lemons or aromatherapy can help. Acupressure bands are worth a shot. Eating ice or icy drinks is another one. Ginger beer.

    For work - make sure you have proper vomit bags just in case. Have saved me so many times.

    I also recommend a book called Morning Sickness Survival Guide written by Lisa McAully (a Mum from Brisbane). I wish I had read something like this the first time I had MS. It's very short - which is what you want when you're so sick. No miracle cures or anything but practical, useful and reassuring. It has a really neat section on coping with MS at work. It's linked to a site called http://www.morningsicknesssurvivalkits.com.au/. They've got bunch of morning sickness kits on there which look great. Where were you in my first pregnancy damn it?!

    Hope this helps a little.
