im 6wks pregnant and im getting really bad morning sickness which is lasting all day and nothing seems to be stoping it!
ive tried eating ginger biscuits 1st thing but that seems to be making it worse. i also have a 4mth old baby and dont have time to be running to loo to be sick every 5mins! please help
Poor you Stillsmiling, and blimey, a 4 month old too! Crikey. Can't really offer much advice as mine was nausea really rather than full blown sickness. Had a 3 week period from about 6 - 9 weeks where felt like death warmed up, but am over the worst, fingers crossed. It might be worth doing a thread search for morning sickness, although FWIW I don't recall magic cures being posted, more advice about keeping nutrition levels up even when sick.
thanks for that picadilly, i had sickness in 1st pregnancy and found resting really helped me and also eating everything in sight! hehe
i just dont have the time to do that this time round it takes me all my time to get a quick bit of toast down my throat!
vict17 what a travel band?
i do try and eat as much as poss but really its just junk food i tend to have time for nothing that takes too long to prepare, and that be good for me! (although it does taste good! )
the travel bands definately worked for me (i was at the stage where ANYTHING was worth a try) In the end i kept it just about tolerable by - constant travel band use - eating a LOT and trying to rest and get a good nights sleep (not easy as i felf v. sick at night!!) Good luck
i do try and get as much fuit etc as i can but i live quite far from shops and neither me or husband drive so its difficult to always have a fresh suply but getting dried fruit is a really good idea and i will def get some!
Hugs to you, ss. I'm going through the same thing - though hopefully nearing the end of it as I'm currently about 10 wks. I'll post a link to a recent thread here in a minute. Sadly nothing helped me, last time or this time, so no advice I'm afraid! I know how miserable it is, especially with a baby to look after.
I have three kids now and can remember the sickness in early pg. had it all day, with no let up. its horrible. dawn till dusk ! sleep was the only let up and to eat when you wanted. loved grapefruit, cornflakes, salad and fizzy lemonade and grapefruit sparkling drink. takes a while to go but hang on in there, and best of luck ! !
I ate dry cream crackers a lot and plain crisps. I couldn't even prepare sandwiches for DS. The local cafe kept us alive as they did kids meals for £1.50. We were there every day. I got a real craving for there baked potato and haggis. I found I could eat quite well if I didn't have to prepare it.
