morning sickness(6 Posts)
Probably a silly question but does being sick help get rid of morning sickness? I've been in the verge of throwing up all morning and wonder if I will feel better if I give in or does it just stay with you even after being sick?
When I'm sick for other reasons (I.e. Not pregnancy related) actually being sick helps the feeling pass which is why I'm asking the question.
It's different for different people I think. I'm 7 weeks with DC2 and, like with DS pregnancy, if I'm actually sick first thing in the morning I feel loads better. Days when I'm not sick I'm left with a queasy feeling for the rest of the day. I still feel 'off' just not as bad as days when I'm not actually sick.
It's not even sick. It's water I've drank in the night and some bile (sorry tmi), like my stomach needs something to be digesting constantly. Tried eating little and often and snacks in the night but it's hard to think about food when your tummy is just churning. I'm at an afternoon tea baby shower in an hour with people who don't know I'm pregnant. Going to have to grin and plough my way through sandwiches.
Hoping it passes soon! Sickness with DS didn't start until 10 weeks but lasted right through (vomited throughout labour).... This started 2 weeks ago do hoping it will be more traditional just first trimester type sickness.
Thanks for your reply!
Best of luck when you are out today.
I'm 7w exactly today and have had this feeling gradually building all week. Hoping it passes soon for both of us! I know what you mean about the "stomach needs to be digesting something" comment, I hadn't narrowed it down to that yet but have realised that I'm fine about 10 minutes after eating for a couple of hours but getting the motivation to eat is so blooming hard, never eaten so much!
My first pregnancy was a HG pregnancy, it didn't matter if I was sick or not nothing stayed down or made me feel better/ kicked the nausea, though lemonade, cold, made the experience a little easier.
This time round, very nauseous, but actually being sick even if it's just the morning/ evening bile run (sorry but its true) does make me feel better.
What I learnt from my first pregnancy baby will get all the good stuff, so just eating what I could and not panicking too much,
Hope it passes soon.
Sorry, I felt no better when I threw up! That I remember - my sickness was so bad my memory is very hazy.
Just try and eat as much as you can (don't gorge, I mean little and often), and if you fancy something then have it. Anything to make you feel better!!
I always found toast made me feel a bit more human.
Hope it passes soon, and congratulations!
I've got really bad nausea, I feel sick from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep. I've been sick several times but every time with made me feel no better or made me feel better for a few minutes and then I was back to being ill again.
Try to make yourself eat, don't think about food just eat it. No matter what it is, even if the only thing you can stomach is kitkats it will make you feel better for a while.
The best things I've found when I'm feeling really sick are blueberries, twister ice lollies and liquorice allsorts. Also I find that laying on my right hand side for a while helps when I'm feeling really rough and can't function. Also, make sure you drink lots of water, sometimes it's easier if it has ice cubes in it, for some reason it's more palatable for most of its really cold. If you get to a point where you can't even face water try plain ice pops. Anything to make sure you don't get too dehydrated.
