it's really an awful, terrible, intolerable feeling to have a 24 hour nausea without being able to effectively burp or throw up!
I've been taking medicines but in vain!! it didn't work not even for a single minute! any clueee????

ohhh god, I'm with you there. I thought it had gone off at 10 weeks, but here I am at 11 weeks and I've just had the worst day in the world - constant nausea (did throw up) and feeling like pants 24/7. Just wanted to say that you're not alone. I have Stemitil which helps in that it lets me keep food down, but doens't really do anything for nausea. Amovine just makes me v tired. How far on are you??

None of the drugs for morning sickness, sadly, are meant to help with nausea, or least that's what I've been told. THey will stop you from vomiting but will not stop you from feeling sick. THat's the hardest part, because I think if your nausea is really bad nothing really helps (ginger, wristbands, etc). I also found it very depressing in my first pregnancy because I expected to get better at 12 weeks and wasn't really better at all till 16, and then felt kind of ok again by 20. Everyone is different but it my 2nd pregnancy (am now 17 weeks) it has helped, oddly, knowing it was not likely to get better until now. I have finally stopped daily vomiting but am still off food.

My only suggestions, because i presume you have tried all the folk remedies, is to try to do stuff to cheer you up: get some good stuff to read or a favorite show on DVD and roll with the punches.

THis time around it has been tricky for me because nausea made it difficult to sleep. I just had an array of trashy books and read them in the night (dh evicted because the poor man's smell made me vomit). I was lucky because this was in August and I didn't have to go to work. Had it been termtime I would have had to have been signed off.

One other thought: i just gave up eating normal food. Trying to eat 'meals' at 'mealtimes' just made me feel disgusting, so I ate whatever I could stomach when I felt I could. That actually helped, but I'm still struggling with the concept of WANTING food, which, as someone who loves her food, is tricky!

ooo thanks for your hints, I ll definitely b trying the Avomine knowing that all the other drugs haven't worked for me!and as Roary has said it works for the vomiting thing but not for the nausea. now I'm at 8 weeks, and it seems that my nausea is diminishing from time to time, it relieves and consoles me to feel that it's not constant anymore. meals at mealtimes make you really feel disgusting, this is very true, I can't even imagine myself eating meals even though I'm hungry.the only thing that's helping now is to eat small but many portions,and I'm also having too many food aversions.ginger tablets are also helping and bananas as well, Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep up blood sugar levels and avoid morning sickness. but the weirdest thing is that whenever I c a bar of chocolate, I really do not feel to devour it!

oh the constant nausea all day long, when im hungry, after i eat and then when i try to eat i cant, i feel full and sick after 2 bites, its getting me down.
woke up twice last nite hoping the feeling in my stomach would ease enough for me to fall back asleep.
bananas too seem to be helping a little if i eat them slowly and i cant even look at chocolate or bread or cheese.
im only 7 weeks the thought of 5 or more weeks of this horribliness in the pit of my stomach is enought to turn my stomach. i didnt have anything as awful as this with my previous 2 pg's.

I've had the nausea all day for about 3 weeks and since last week have been chucking up at least once a day and never at the same time! I have found that wristbands take the edge of the nausea but that they definately don't stop you being sick. I have even had to do a mad dash for the loo in the pub in the middle of a meal and in Asda to be sick. Deciding that nothing is straightforward not even shopping!

I'm now 8+3 and it doesn't seem to be easing and guessing that it won't for a while.

Fizzy water seems to help a bit
