Requesting anti-sickness medication at 13 weeks?
Nat4392 · 22/11/2020 10:52
I’m 13+3 and I’ve had nausea and sickness everyday since around 6 weeks. I feel nauseous 24/7 but I only physically vomit around 4x a week. This last week I feel like it’s been getting worse and I’m so fed up. I’m hoping it will start to ease over the next few weeks but I’m so worried that I’ll be one of the unlucky ones where it lasts much longer. I’ve tried to power through and deal with it as I’ve been a bit dubious about taking medication during pregnancy but honestly it’s affecting my day to day life so much. I’ve lost half a stone in the last 4 weeks.
Has anyone requested anti sickness medication this far gone? Or just any experiences about going on the tablets would be helpful x

Do it, if you can't function you need it, ive had HG with every pregnancy, its horrible

@Nat4392 I suffered ( & still do slightly ) with bad nausea in my first trimester. I was missing a lot of work / getting sent home & getting some crap from my bosses
I rang my midwife who told me to ring my GP - got a phone appointment a few hours later , answered a few questions & was prescribed with cyclizine
I take them when needed & they have worked a treat for me
I'd suggest doing the same as me

Just do it if you can't function like this. I've suffered the whole 9 months and tried every medication. The one that helped was ondansetron which I stopped using at 6 months. The hg affected my mental health a lot with the combination of pregnancy hormones, I was at a really dark place. Speak to your GP, my GP was amazing and supportive.

I was 13+1 when I finally gave in and rang the GP having suffered since 5wks. It was a relief when I got them so fingers crossed you get something and it helps

I started the sickness medication at 14 weeks, it helps so much!
