Morning sickness advice

(4 Posts)

Hi ladies, just wanted to know people's thoughts and opinions. I am nearly 27 weeks pregnant and still vomiting once, almost everyday. It's been like this since I was 7 weeks pregnant. It's only once, but generally it's everything my stomach can possibly bring up. It now triggers nose bleeds. This can also occur at any time of the day. I think the most days I have had without being sick is 4 days. But even then, not a day goes past where I do not feel nauseous at some point of the day or bring up fluid and also dry heave.

It is getting me down now, but I am aware that I am obviously keeping certain meals and drinks down - it is only once a day... but I do dread getting up, not knowing when it's going to hit. It's been so embarrassing throwing up in public pretty much Monday-Friday and getting to work every day is a struggle as I commute into London.

It's now got to a point that I don't want to go out when I don't have to because I am so conscious of it striking. I am aware that there are people who suffer much worse than this. So I suppose my question is, has anyone taken anti sickness meds at about my severity? Does the above warrant meds? Should I just man up and just see through the next 3 months? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hi MrsM, I'm 17w and have been on meds since week 9. I'm only throwing up a few times a week now (typically multiple sicks on one day) but taking medication has helped no end. You absolutely don't need to ride it out - in no other scenario would vomiting every day for 4/5 months just be ok! Head over to the Hyperemesis Support thread - lots of utterly lovely and wise women there who have helped me no end (and can advise you on how to explain problem to GP etc) flowers

I couldn't do without my meds. Honestly- just ask your gp. I wouldn't put up with your situation.
