Hi all, I'm 8+4 weeks pg, and have horrendous 'morning' sickness. Except its not just in the morning its all day. I just have no appetite and when I do eat or drink I throw up. I have already lost some weight and just feel so guilty that I may be damaging my baby. I have a 3yo dd who fortunately is at school till 3 so i can just lie down as thats the only way I feel half decent. I had hyperemersis with dd and am just dreading another 8 months of feeling like this. I honestly dont know why Im posting just need to get it out i suppose.
Baby will be absolutely fine - it's just you that sickness takes its toll on. I recommend anti-sickness tablets plus acupuncture - works for a lot more women than just anti-sickness tablets on their own. Ask your GP if they can give acupuncture - a few do, although it's not funded on the NHS so many won't. Otherwise do a google search for local acupuncture clinics in your area - I don't think it costs a lot. Definitely worth trying. I found keeping a big bag of ice cubes in the fridge and having sips of water full of ice with a slice of lemon helped - the only way I could get fluids down. And sucking on cola cubes. Hoping it gets better for you soon - just because you had sickness for so long last pregnancy does not mean you'll be the same again this time - it goes by baby, not by what has happened to mum previously. All the best x
