If you're being sick a lot....

well, by a lot I mean still around 3 times a day at 17 weeks, but manage to eat really healthily, are the vitamins actually reaching my baby?

I'm getting so frustrated. After I had a really rough time with hyperemesis at the start, I can now eat a lot of healthy stuff. Nothing cooked or strong smelling, but a lot of fruit and veg. So while I do get the vitamins in my stomach, I'm wondering if they are actually staying in long enough in order to be digested and therefore be of any use to my baby.

Does anyone else feel like eating is just a bit pointless?

yes i felt like that.

i guess it must be doing some good, and at least there is a chance baby might get something.... and you have to keep trying cause each meal might be one of the first meals you keep down.

Am 38 weeks now and said for months that id be better off tipping my breakfast straight down the toilet, as thats where it went every single day seeminly completley undigested hmm By about 18 / 20 weeks i was keeping down some meals sometimes.

since 36 weeks my sickness has finally started to subside and i have only been sick twice in the past 2 weeks, which is just bliss.

I hope you feel better soon, and that soon you start to digest the food you try to eat!

Poor you - utterly horrible spending so much time feeling rubbish and throwing up! I managed to be sick several times a day, most days until 30 weeks and then had a 4 week respite before I started again at 34 weeks. I'm now 36 weeks and can thankfully have anti sickness tablets if really bad (bliss).

I did feel a bit sorry for myself but somehow (not at all sure how) managed to pick up appropriate weight gain and ensure baby growing splendidly...hope it stops soon for you smile

Feel for you it is horrible.

I was either being sick/feeling sick/getting over being sick. I once counted. I was sick NINE times between 7pm and 11pm.

Morning sickness? Pah!

Poor you. Banana smoothies with ginger helped and dry bread. Anything else made me heave for hours

Everyone is different. Babies are difficult little critters, my SIL ate eggs in every single form. Scrambled, fried, poached, boiled etc etc.......
