Nausea

Am 10 weeks pregnant with DC2. DD1 ended up being an easy pregnancy with no real symptoms and I guess I thought that this one would be the same. But no, the nausea this time has been awful. Ever since about 6 weeks the nausea has been getting worse to the point now I am feeling sick constantly all day. Finding doing anything almost impossible - still working but finding it next to impossible to do anything of use and can't really getting away with not doing much for too much longer.

Today has been the worst day so far. Starting wondering about going to the GP to try and get some anti-emetics. Would they even prescribe them in this situation or is it really if you are actually sick which I am not.

Getting to the point of not being able to to work and have a toddler too.... Thank good ness DH is amazing....

Try travel sickness wrist bands. They were the only thing that stopped the nausea while I was pregnant.

Could have written your post. Am 9 weeks. It's constant. Afternoons are the worst. You have my sympathy.

Try pancakes for breakfast. Has nausea and sickness the whole way and pancakes for about 5 months everyday. It really helped to have a full tummy first thing - hunger is the worst thing for nausea.

Same here! No advice unfortunately just commiserations. It's horrible.

I was the same. They gave me the drugs! I had been off work though. I just explained that I wasn't able to eat properly and I couldn't cope.

Ginger biscuits were the only thing that stopped me feeling sick. I'm 39 weeks now and I've been munching them again.

I feel your pain! I had terrible nausea until week 23 and now seem to be having a relapse at week 30! I snacked often as that was the only thing that helped. I have no tips on what to snack on as I found it changed weekly! Eat something just before bed and first thing when you wake up and keep food in your bag! I was prescribed antiemetics from week 13 as I suddenly started to be very sick and I took them for about 6 weeks. You could ask your GP as the nausea is stopping you from doing daily things. Be warned that they do make you feel very sleepy and out of it though so you have to weigh up the pros and cons. On the tablets I had to sleep in the afternoons and was signed off work for 3 weeks! Hope you feel better soon x

Ginger tea and constantly snacking. Melon and pineapple, nuts, plain biscuits, cheese sandwiches. Lots and lots of water.

And try to take some time off work if it is getting really bad. Constantly feeling sick is exhausting.

With my DDs I was only mildly
Nauseous from around 8-12 weeks. With DS I was rough from around 5 weeks until 17 weeks, throwing up several times a day and felt sick constantly. Even used to wake up at 3am to throw up. I'm 3+5 this time and already feel rough as anything so feel your pain. I'm exhausted and daren't stray too far from the bathroom which is no fun with a 15
Month old hurricane

I had one day when I was sick 5 times. The next day I went to the go and got anti sickness. They really helped with th nausea (and signed me off work).
I was hardly sick at all then, just when I was tired.

It's awful when you're in the middle of it - a few more weeks of constant sickness sounds never-ending.

I was able to go for breaks in work as they have a medical room with a bed. I would lie down for 15 or 20 mins and build my energy back up and sometimes throw up. I would feel a little bit less terrible by the time I returned to my desk

I didn't even know my workplace had somewhere to lie down as it's a big office so I didn't think they'd have that facility.

Before I discovered that room I'd go to the car park and lie in the back seat of my car - I used to bring a pillow and blanket in the car

I also drank a cold can of fanta everyday - don't normally drink fizzy drinks and probably not good advice - but the sugar helped me get through the morning in work

Miserable times smile - but it will all be worth it one day
