How often are you being sick? Your GP and prescribe medication to prevent \ reduce slickness.

Hey Iminch1990

I had the same sickness in my first pregnancy....firstly I wanted to reassure you it does get better! It did also make me question being able to cope with my pregnancy but you can definitely do it smile I started to feel better around 9/10 weeks. I went to the doctor who gave me cyclizine which really took the edge of the nausea and got me through the last bit of the first trimester.

I'm now 4 weeks and know that the nausea is sure to come at some point in the next 2 weeks.... It's not fun but keep reminding yourself that you WILL start to feel better xx

I was the same severe morning sickness until 19 weeks, nearly ended up in hospital at around 10 weeks due to dehydration and starvation, small amounts often and ice pops are really good at keeping you hydrated, now 20 weeks not been sick for a week and sooo happy
