25 weeks pregnant and still have constant nausea

hello there,
I'm 25 weeks pregnant and still have constant nausea (although do not throw up)..it's grim..I also have a horrible bitter taste in my mouth all the time and wake up every morning with a horrible furry tongue that I have to scrub!!!sorry for being graphic but was wondering if any one else has had this and when did it go???I got a feeling it may last right till the end tho...
this is my second pregnancy and I was ill during the first till 16 weeks..the only way
I can cope with the nausea this time is by eating every couple of hours but I am aware that I am putting on a lot of weight by doing this which is a bit depressing as I know I was slow to regain my figure after my first pregnancy...I also feel very lethargic this time..but my iron levels were ok at last blood test (16 weeks)...any advice from any one please???
thank you

I have been the same this time round, TBH it is less constant now (22 weeks), but still getting at least 10 waves a day, and I get the furry tongue thing too.

I have found keeping as absolutely hydrated as I can is helping, and is a fairly good alternitive to eating which I am trying to curb for the same reasons as you.

It may be worth bringing up how lethargic you're feeling at your next AN appointment, they may well re-do your bloods. It has been a long time since you had them done and things can change so quickly in pregnancy.

Mary, this is probably not what you want to hear but I was ill the whole way through my last pg with ongoing nausea (not actual throwing up), constant tiredness and cold after cold after cold.

For the nausea, I ended up having a daily prebiotic drink (or was it probiotic? I get confused...) which did seem to help a little.

Try not to worry too much about the weight right now - if you are doing what you can to keep yourself feeling well then carry on doing it!
