evening / night sickness

(10 Posts)

Currently 6 +5 and really struggling with evening / night sickness.

I don't feel too bad on a morning. Can function ok but come 3/4 pm extreme fatigue sets in and I'm feeling awfully nauseous. The sickness continues to bedtime and is even waking me up during the night.

What's this all about? Anyone else feeling this ? Any tips to get rid of this feeling? I don't want to eat or drink past 4pm and can't cope with no sleep confused

Hi Looiloo,
I have evening nausea too - I find that eating water biscuits at the first sign of a nausea wave helps, I have a packet next to bed too for when I wake at night. They really do help. Getting hungry makes the feeing a lot worse.

I'm almost 12 weeks and it hasn't gone away yet!

Snacking little and often helps. Try to nap mid afternoon to avoid the tiredness if you can and keep eating.

I had this until about 13 weeks and also felt fine during the morning/day. I used to eat bland dinners when I could (mashed potato) and eat more at lunch if I couldn't stomach evening meals. Also, I did a lot of sitting up in bed at 2am sucking on ginger biscuits or rich teas to ease my stomach as an empty stomach felt worse.
Hope you feel better soon.

I had nausea & vomiting all the way through my pregnancy. It was always worse if I was hungry, so I started constantly grazing on plain things like crackers, oatcakes etc & sipping water. Congrats on your pregnancy OP, hope you feel better soon.

I was the same, nausea kicked in every day around 3:30

Only things that eased it were naps,( id often leave work early and go to bed for a couple of hours)
And never letting myself get hungry. I know you said you don't want to eat after 4 but constantly grazing on digestives, mini cheddars and buttered road was all that got me through.

The sickness should ease by 12-14 weeks and if you're like me I was craving less carbs and much healthier a stuff then. I just gave in and reckoned my body knew what it needed

Mine was the same - don't go too long without eating, I found that helped my sickness in the afternoons / early evening

Same here - had it all the way through and now 22w. It's hell.

Thanks for all the tips and support. It's the worst feeling for sure. Will try graze more and not go hungry. Awful when you have zero appetite.

I know it will be worth it in the end but this is torture confused

I also went to bed with those travel sickness acupressure bands sometimes. I don't know how effective they are but even if it's psychological, small things like that made me feel a tad better. And chewing gum. Might be counterproductive as I think it produces stomach acid but chewing something minty often made me feel slightly better.
You just have to find your little combination of things that ease the grimness!
