Hi, only about 6 weeks pregnant but I feel like I have a constant hangover. I knew about the nausea but my stomach feels really raw (that's the best way I can think to describe it), like it can when you're hungover! Is this normal?! Is there anything I can take that will settle it?
I was like this the whole time pretty much with both pregnancies. The only way I could describe it was a hangover. Sometimes a couple of pints, sometimes a mad session. The other feeling was that I had a virus I just couldn't shake
Oh yes...going to work feeling really hungover and knowing that you couldn't have a big breakfast, coffee and an early night and it will be fixed is fun as is trying to throw up quietly in the toilets before anyone knows!
The good news is that it will get better hopefullyby about 14 weeks. Then you feel great!
Yes, that's it - the worst hangover ever... for 6 weeks. Try sipping ginger beer and, even through it doesn't feel right, eat when you feel like you're going to vomit. It took me weeks of my first pregnancy to work that one out but 95% of the time eating will actually stop you vomiting. The other 5% of the time - well, that's going to happen anyway.
Yes thats exactly what mine felt like, my tip is eat through it ( even though its hard when you don't fancy anything, I always felt better after eating) and when it was really bad I would have a can of coke (which is naughty because of the caffeine but really helped me). When I was about 13 weeks it just disappeared and I felt brilliant overnight!
Yes, exactly how I describe it. 8 weeks of hangover without the fun of getting tipsy first.
Eat lots, and rest lots, and eat something the second you get out of bed in the morning (preferably before you get out of bed in the morning - I keep biscuits by the bed for this) - they are the only things I have found to help!
Yes I had this although I didn't really get much sickness (which is funny as I always throw up with a hangover....). The worst of it went away at 16 weeks (constant headaches and feeling like death warmed up) but I still sometimes wake up with a yucky mouth and that feeling like I'm trying to remember what happened the night before and then realise I haven't touched a drop in seven and a half months!
