Only 5 weeks but I feel so sick constantly! Haven't actually been sick though. I have tried ginger biscuits, rich tea biscuits, sipping coke and even invested in the more expensive ginger biscuits from M&S. I don't like ginger ale though so that's out of the question. Any tips please x
I found that eating bland food little and often helped me. I also started taking my multivitamin tablet in the evening after I had eaten my tea, rather than in the morning, that helped a little. It really is just a case of riding it out though.
Yeah you're doing all the right things I'm afraid, eating bland food little and often is the most important. Make sure you're eating something as soon as you wake up as you're more likely to feel most sick when your stomach is empty so whilst it may sound counterintuitive it's important to eat often so your stomach is never too empty. I sympathise, I had awful HG from 6 weeks til about 16 weeks and I'm now 21 weeks and loads better but still nauseous with certain smells/ travel/ and in the mornings and still vomiting in the mornings if I wake up too early or move about too much. It is grim but there's not much you can do about nausea on its own.
Hi, sorry you're feeling so sick. I had really bad sickness with both of my pregnancies and it was horrible. I couldn't keep anything down at one point not even water. I found sucking on ice cubes helpful and dry toast. It passed thankfully at 16 weeks the first time and 18 weeks the second time. Some say it's a sign of a really healthy placenta growing so I guess that's a plus?!?Hope it gets better soon.
I am in exactly the same boat. 5 weeks and the nausea has hit. In my last pregnancy I was nauseous for about 10 weeks, 24 hours a day. I'm dreading this bit. Constant nausea is awful, that sickness feeling without any relief of actually being sick.
I had the same, lived on melons and cold milk, was all I could stomach! Holland & Barrett sell very strongly ginger flavoured pastilles called GinGins, they really helped keep a lid on the nausea. I got through boxes!
Ritz crackers, dry cereal (Bran Flakes), yoghurt, and tiny pieces of fruit was what I lived on during the early stages of both pregnancies. Just under 18 weeks here and feel so much better! It's horrible, OP, but hopefully it'll pass.
Like everyone else has said. Eat little and often plenty of snacks and if you don't feel like eating I add a few haribo here and there and it's easier to chew on when you feel sick. Ice lollies are good too just keep eating little bits. It will pass. I used to feel sick from the minute I woke up until about 5pm everyday it was horrible but it passed!
