Humour me ladies grin

I'm 7+1, feel like death and have just vomitted up some banana milkshake, it actually wasn't that bad! compared to yesterday's fruit yogurt

Yonionekanobe Mon 15-Jul-13 20:06:54

Smoothies so similar!

98percentchocolate Mon 15-Jul-13 20:07:14

Skittles! Cut my throat raw but looked hilarious afterwards and tasted better than potato!

shutitweirdo Mon 15-Jul-13 20:09:20

Chocolate cake. 20 mins later still tasted of chocolate

lifesgreatquestions Mon 15-Jul-13 20:10:24

I cannot, just cannot go with this. How you feel better soon!

everythinghippie29 Mon 15-Jul-13 20:13:37

Ha, I wad going to say skittles too! I tasted rainbow...twice. grin.

ThreeEyedRaven Mon 15-Jul-13 20:14:33

grin

I might start planning tomorrow's tea around your suggestions. Smoothie followed by choc cake and skittles!

AuntPepita Mon 15-Jul-13 20:14:39

Grapefruit juice tasted pretty much the same up and down.

ThreeEyedRaven Mon 15-Jul-13 20:15:25

every that made me lol so hard I nearly spewed banana milkshake again grin

readysteady Mon 15-Jul-13 20:19:08

Grapes don't hurt when they come back up (speaks from experience of desperation to try and stop bringing up bile) grapes was almost soothing (grim I know but when you can't stop retching...... ) sorry smile

Strawberry bonbons - those chewy toffee things covered in strawberry icing sugar. They taste like sweet strawberries either going down or coming up again! grin

RichManPoorManBeggarmanThief Mon 15-Jul-13 20:38:17

Baileys, but probably not ideal given you're pregnant grin

Agnesboo Mon 15-Jul-13 20:38:56

Raspberries I ate them knowing full well they would come back up but I couldn't deal with throwing acid up anymore. Bloody morning sickness.

Frozen ones are best.

RNJ3007 Mon 15-Jul-13 20:40:53

As a Hyperemesis sufferer, I have VAST experience of this! Cool Lime Refreshas are pretty good in reverse, and if still cold they don't hurt so much. Homemade non-chunky veggie soup wasn't traumatic either.

AnyaKnowIt Germany Mon 15-Jul-13 20:43:24

Another skittles vote here! The worse was milk and sods law that was my craving.

Gingerandlemon Mon 15-Jul-13 20:47:47

I was pleasantly surprised by my friend's homemade strawberry cheesecake on second tasting. Oh and bananas are great because they're soft coming back up. Dried apricots? Not so much.

feekerry Mon 15-Jul-13 20:48:11

mashed potato is extremely traumatic as it stays in the same form so you can't breathe whilst hurling as its kinda filling your airways. it really is not nice

CheeseFondueRocks Mon 15-Jul-13 20:51:36

Best combo was cherry juice and kiwi fruit!

Worst by far wrap with rocket, halloumi and piri-piri sauce.

PoppadomPreach Mon 15-Jul-13 20:52:03

I think toblerone

PlainOldVanilla Mon 15-Jul-13 20:53:42

When I read the title I thought tequila but then I saw it was in pregnancy. I didn't drink it when I was pregnant but nothing compAres to how nasty that was!

Futterby Mon 15-Jul-13 20:55:13

Wotsits!

Anothermrssmith Mon 15-Jul-13 20:57:35

Ha ha ha this has me in stitches! Anything chocolate is usually good second time round but since I drink copious amounts of (decaf) tea everyday I can confirm tea is not as bad as you would expect.

agendabender Mon 15-Jul-13 20:58:39

Sainsbury's vampire teeth chewy sweets! Just remembered this from previous pregnancy. Everything this pregnancy is just really nasty.

HeyMicky Mon 15-Jul-13 20:59:54

Raspberry lemonade

beth27123 Mon 15-Jul-13 21:13:05

Kinder snack bars. Tasted like hot chocolate.
Scrambled egg...not so much.

Futterby Mon 15-Jul-13 21:15:21

Egg mayor roll was absolutely minging coming back up. Looked like potato salad.

Futterby Mon 15-Jul-13 21:16:06

Egg mayor? Egg mayor? What exactly is an egg mayor?

LostInWales Mon 15-Jul-13 21:18:03

Ooh, ooh, I know (sorry, extensive product testing here, if I'm pregnant I vomit, whatever the trimester) I used to always have full sugar ribena when I woke up and it was sweet and lovely coming back, much better than water and HEAPS better than just bile god this is all bringing it back I am so glad my baby days are over

My sympathies OP and all you vomity pregnant women. Just stick to the MN mantra, 'This too shall pass'.

RedRobin1 Mon 15-Jul-13 21:27:27

Peppermint tea - tasted lovely and minty coming back up

Water - just plain water tasted fine too

I have severe sickness (15w) and nothing else tasted good coming back up...

nutella81 Mon 15-Jul-13 21:48:47

Sweet cereal. On cyclizine I still chucked up every morning before work for ages, but found a big bowl of milky cereal make it so much more bearable! Especially whilst coming through the nostrils, lol x

Ls271082 Mon 15-Jul-13 21:51:02

Icecream

WandaDoff Mon 15-Jul-13 21:52:04

Ribena, it tastes just the same coming back up smile

weirdthing Mon 15-Jul-13 22:01:43

Ready Brek - nice to puke and looked exactly the same.

ThreeEyedRaven Mon 15-Jul-13 22:15:24

These are brilliant, thank you ladies grin

I tend to only actually vomit around tea time, so reckon if I steer clear of the mash potato and egg rolls then it shouldn't be too bad!

I might try some skittles tomorrow just to entertain myself! grin

kelda Mon 15-Jul-13 22:16:06

Solero ice cream

kelda Mon 15-Jul-13 22:16:52

But only if I vomited it up immediately and it was still cold.

Dollybird86 Mon 15-Jul-13 22:46:43

Anything citrus! I don't mind bread toasted or normal! Pasta plain is ok add sauce & its not great banana is ok. The worst had to be mashed potatoes I still can't even think about eating it @26 & ms went @ 17! Rice couscous & pluses are ok I didn't really eat much else. Dairy was & still is something that will make me sick & is not nice on the way back up anyway. Feel better soon.

Accidentallyquirky Mon 15-Jul-13 22:57:05

Sprite and summer fruits oasis taste the same second time around , it's all I drank for 28 weeks.

I couldn't stand bread or toast coming back up as it felt like it was getting stuck confused

EmBeEmBe Tue 16-Jul-13 02:53:25

Jelly. Easy on the throat. Or a Mars Bar, washed down with plenty of milk. But never eat curry if still at risk of vomming. The memories still make me nauseous. Ah, happy days. Still at it at 16 weeks but hope to be done soon!!

Sunflower1985 Tue 16-Jul-13 09:48:37

After having a gastric bypass whatever comes back up is the same as what goes in. Had a very sicky pregnacy so know this for sure. Anyone else?

ChairOfTheBored Tue 16-Jul-13 10:00:15

Nothing was great, though agree with others that plain water didn't taste offensive. Orange juice was OK, but a bit burny.

I will never eat another mini shreadded wheat after a unexpectedly violent vomming session left me sneezing shredded wheat for the next two hours...

TiffanyAtBreakfast Tue 16-Jul-13 10:29:48

Haha. This is the weirdest thread ever.

ChristineDaae Tue 16-Jul-13 11:26:33

Chocolate milkshake right after drinking. Word of warning, do not throw up Jalapeños! It's awfulsad

karinmaria Tue 16-Jul-13 11:35:28

Salmon and lentils. Chucking up fish is the most disgusting thing I have ever experienced. Ugh.

StillPukin Tue 16-Jul-13 13:40:14

Every morning I have a glass of fresh orange juice, a tangerine and a plum because I know it will return in about an hour, this makes it far less nasty. Whenever if I feel the nausea start to build throughout the day I try to eat some fruit - I've worked out it usually takes about an hour from the start of it starting to build and it reappearing.
For this reason, whatever you do avoid cheese - I dont think I'll ever be able to eat it again in any shape or form.
Hope it soon passes for you x

OnFoot Tue 16-Jul-13 13:48:12

Milk or chocolate milk. Had 34 weeks of HG with both pregnancies and I swear milk was my saviour. Vomit tastes less acidic. Also used to rinse my mouth with milk after I vomited to reduce the acidity in mouth and damage to tooth enamel.

No curries and pretty much anything with onion is awful on the return.

LottyLikesWindows Tue 16-Jul-13 21:14:46

Is there anything worse than morning/evening/all day sickness and vomiting? Well I'm sure there is but it certainly does not feel like it when food is flying out of mouth and nostrils. I'm going to have to concur with those who've mentioned bananas and water. I nearly wept with happiness the first time I threw those up. Cannot say the same about apples or anything with onions or tomatoes in it.

Really hoping your sickness will pass soon. Mine is still lingering on at 15 weeks. The bastard!
