    Polaramine (antihistemine) is supposed to be safe in pregnancy - check with the pharmacist. The first few months suck, but it will get better x

    I remember feeling exactly the same way, it was horrendous. It was a much longed for bub but all I kept wanting was for the pregnancy to be over.
    I ended up having hyperemesis and needing zofran three times a day plus restavit at night - it is an over the counter sleeping tablet that also helps with the nausea. It was recommended by the specialist I saw in hospital when I was admitted for dehydration. If you tell the pharmacist that it's for morning sickness then you need a prescription but if you say it's for sleep issues then no prescription is needed. I highly recommend talking to your doctor about medication options.
    I hope it eases up for you soon. Despite having a horrible pregnancy with vomiting every day until DS arrived, it is absolutely worth it - I woke up the morning after the birth saying I wanted to do it all again!

    Thanks all
    My poor partner just feels helpless as nothing is working.
    Zofran is no longer effective

    I actually have restavit but assumed it was unsafe as yes I used to take it for sleep?

    Polaromine is definitely safe during pregnancy. I took it last time and take it this time to (usually ever day for severe allergies/ hayfever).

    I had two hospital specialists prescribe it so definitely fine to take. At my worst I took half a tablet in the morning and a full tablet at night. Zofran was great for stopping the vomiting but not so great for the nausea. With the nausea are you still able to keep your fluid intake up? Dehydration made everything much worse.

    You can definitely take restavit, phenergan or polaramine

    I took all three at various times during both my HG pregnancies. My ob said I only have to stop taking it within 5 days of giving birth as after birth it can drop their breathing rates.

    I use to have zofran 8mg wafers + restavit or phenergan every night.

    Good luck! HG pregnancies feel like forever xx

    Just wanted to say I feel your pain xox I'm 10.5 weeks, taking zofran twice a day which takes the edge off but I'm still throwing up everyday and the nausea sucks. Everything and everyone smells bad and it's all pretty miserable most of the time. Before I went to the ED for iv fluids and meds I lost about 5 kgs from constantly throwing up. Couldn't even get out of bed. Feels like a horrendously long road at the moment but I'm thankful for this precious baby. We'll get there eventually. Zofran constipation sucks too. I'm thinking of trying restavit or phenergan, hope one of those helps you.

    In terms of your eczema I would suggest moo goo products. They were a life saver for my hubby who suffers eczema on his hands, feet and scalp. He uses moo goo products and hasn't flared up since.

    I hope your pregnancy gets easier and you can enjoy it xx

    Awww hun that's a lot of horrible things to deal with at once. You are very brave!

    Defo try restavit. I got on it at 8wks after hospital trip and am still on it, 22wk now. If I forget a night I'm screwed the next day. I hope it helps.

    I second the moogoo comment too. Try this one - about $20ish from chemist...
