    Default Did anyone get worse just before getting better?

    This might be wishful thinking. With #1 I had HG and was sick the whole pregnancy. I'm nearly 12 weeks with #2 now. I've had severe m/s again but have been managing to keep the vomiting down to 2-3 times per day with Zofran and Maxolon. I stopped the daily Zofran 2 days ago because I was so constipated every week I had to go to hospital. I've been taking maxolon twice a day but it's not working. For the past 36 hours I've been vomiting every 1-2 hours and not keeping anything down. Just throwing up yellow stomach acid. I can't get up to feed my son so hubby had to take a day off work. Why would m/s be worsening now? There were some days before I didn't take Zofran bit not as bad as this. Could it be the last spurt before getting better? Withdrawal from Zofran? Just my crappy luck again?

    Oh poor dear M/S sucks big time (i'm there myself!)

    You can take Maxalon every 8 hours, or that's what my bottle of 10mg ones says. I've been using Zofran when i'm feeling really terrible, and Maxalon when it's not as bad. If you're vomiting that often, i'd suggest a trip to the hospital....they can give you a shot of Maxalon to stop the vomiting, and re-hydrate you too. Could you have picked up a bug? I hope you feel better soon

    From what I understand the more dehydrated you get the more you spew.

    When I start spewing every 1-2 hours for 12+ hrs I know its time for trip to the hospital.

    Do you have any Zofran you can take for now?

    With dd I pretty much had ms the whole pregnancy

    With this one I was nauseas all day for the first trimester. But was actually throwing up. Than on the morning i hit 12 weeks and the whole week between 12-13 I was throwing up and more nauseas than ever.
    The last two weeks have been ok but no real nausea but today I had it. I'm prepared for it to continue throughout again this time too

    I was thinking the exact same thing (about it getting worse before getting better)
    i am midway through week 12 now and this week has been the worst for my ms. I haven't spewed the whole time, (although i have felt like it) until this week, and i have been getting really bad headaches, and am more tired than ever!!

    With my dd i had mild morning sickness for the 1st trimester only and felt great after that. I am hoping that this time it will go away like the last time, even though its been much worse this time.
