So how close are they to inventing a better remedy for Morning Sickness? Because I would quite like another baby...!

I'm holding my horses and waiting for a medical advance...swore I could never go through 15 weeks of it again (or put my children through it)

They have a good drug called Unisom in the states but not over here, think it's a combo of B6 and Phenergan (promethazine) and you can get it in Spain pparently as well...but other than importing a whole raft of that, and is it any good anyway - what can one do?

Has anyone actually tried Unisom or vitamin B6 - did it work?

I'd love another baby one day, just not sure if I could cope as it made me very very ill both times.

Hi Fanlight, This is my second pregnancy and i can see exactly where you are coming from. I has horrendous morning sickness with dd up until 17 weeks. I am now 8 weeks and am suffering again. I am delighted to be pregnant, but this feeling is awful. I rang my midwife and explained that i dont think i can cope with another 9 weeks of this! I have an appointment at the doctor next week to discuss anti sickness tablets. If I get them and they work i can let you know somehow. Perhaps I can put a thread on. I go to the doctors tuesday.

Oh hello Spots smile

It was nice of you to answer. I hope they will prescribe you something...I ended up having various things - something called Stemetil, which was Ok, didn't stop it completely but might have taken the edge off.

Also a few others. I think if you have hyperemesis (very very bad m/s) they can prescribe Zofran (ondansetron) but this is a v expensive drug so they try not to!

Don't let them tell you it's unsafe to take anything - it isn't - lots of people take phenergan as well, which is given to children for travel sickness, so pretty safe smile

Good luck and you can always let me know how you get on on this thread, if you like!

Thanks, sorry its been so long in replying, i have been suffering with msickness real bad. I went to the doctor and she would not give me anything and said that hopefully it would not be as bad as my first pregnancy!
Anyway, I have improved slightly and have stopped being sick , 3 days now, but still am nauseous most of the time. I have been using sea bands on my wrists, they seem to work! I am too afraid to take them off now, in case the sickness come back! Thanks for the info Leonie d
