hi, it's started already, I'm not even 6wks! Last time I got through 4 months of nausea and vomiting with hula hoops and apples and the occasional scone. But I really don't fancy anything now. Give me some inspiration!
Sparkling flavoured water was a god send for me, as was any kind of boiled sweet I could suck. I put on so little weight in the first trimester, and my sickness wasn;t even that bad, it was more that there was just nothing I fancied eating. Am making up for that now with a vile addiction to pot noodles and croissants
This time - Lemonade. Lemon squash. Cake - preferably Belgian buns. Banana. I usually eat like buggery but am now 13 weeks and weigh 1lb less than I did when I got pregnant as I've been so off my food.
Last time round the MW told me to keep a stash of Mars bars handy as MS is due to low blood sugar - who was I to argue with (practically) prescribed chocolate?
only thing that helped me in the end was working from home. If I got up early, had brekkie then went to work the day was a write off. If I stayed in bed for that extra hour and worked from the couch, only eating when I was ready, I was a lot better. Staying still was about my only cure!
I've had various stages. Rice krispie cereal bars cuz at first I could stomach milk. Then diet pepsi and frisps. Now the thing that seems to be working is monster munch and fizzy fruit water. Oh and time, I'm 14 weeks and like you had sickness from about week 5, it easing a little now but still not gone :-(
I too am 14 weeks and just coming through the other side of this. TBH it was horrendous and nothing really 'worked'.
I sipped flat coke throughout the day, but not too much as liquidy stuff made me sick. Make sure to try and have a snack every 1.5/2hrs - do not let you stomach get empty...it's much worse!
Try taking Vitamin B6 tabs, I was having 2 x 10mg a day. Stodgy food suited me better than anything else but sooking a sweet was good for a wee sugar hit. Whatever you think you can keep down, just have it - even if it means going to the shop for it.
I tried 4 sessions of acupuncture but that didn't really work either. Finally, at 11 weeks I went to the docs and got my 'magic pills' (prochlorperazine) which worked a bloody miracle . I haven't had to take any for a week now and I feel pretty much back to normal.
I truly sympathise, hope you're feeling better soon
Yes yes to ice lollies. I never felt this bad with DD, though I haven't actually vomited I feel really car sick most of the day, a bit like the worst hangover going (sick, headachey, hot and cold). I also find cereal bars good, I feel like they may fill be up a little. I can't face heavily flavoured things like my favourite crisps (I thought the salt might be good) or anything too fatty, as the fat makes me feel more sick.
I can suggest rich tea biscuits ( I am thoroughly fed up of eating these now ) yogurt ,pears and grapes oh and cheese toasties are the only food that stays down - with DS this lasted well into 20 weeks and then the indigestion started ! had 2 days this week with no morning sickness so wondering if now I'm 11 - 12 weeks it might be stopping.
