Choking while throwing up??

(3 Posts)

Morning sickness has now progressed to occasional vomiting, but I keep kind of gagging/swallowing as I'm doing it which means I keep choking when it's happening! This is not only completely gross, as I''m effectively swallowing some of it back down (sorry for tmi), but also alarming - this morning I was struggling to breath! I am coughing when this happens, which I assume means my airway isn't entirely obstructed during episodes, but does anyone have any tips for stopping this from happening??

Avoid potatoes is my only tip. Absolutely awful when coming back up! I used to pick foods based on how easy they were to throw up - rice was always a winner.

I don't think I could cope without potatoes. ..I think part of the problem is that I'm throwin up liquid! It's usually happening in the morning, when I first try to eat something. And weirdly it's biscuits that seem the worse. At one point this morning liquid seemed to be comin up without even heaving.

Pregnancy really is a beautiful time.
