    Default Suggestions please!

    I am in the first trimester. I am nauseated all the time. Any pressure across my abdomen makes it worse. It is hard to even wear a bra. I mostly have the dry heaves. And I know from my past three pregnancies that it will last the entire 9 months.

    Help! I've tried Doxolymine and B6. It worked once for 8 hours. I'm on phenergren. Worked last pregnancy, not doing anything this time. I suck on peppermints but that is too much sugar. (I also get very tired of the peppermint taste and it can even make me want to barf too if I've done too many in a single day.) I've tried peppermint tea and it isn't helping. I have ginger candy but that works just as long as it is in my mouth.

    I know I have to eat something, even if it is just a snack about every three hours or it gets worse. But that isn't even a guarantee.

    The worst part about it is, water tastes NASTY to me so I have to have something to flavor it with. I've been using lemon juice but too much of that will erode the enamel from my teeth.

    I'm not vomiting everything. No hyperemesis, thank goodness. But I'd almost rather vomit than have the dry heaves.

    Any other suggestions? Anybody compare Zofran to phenergren? Other home remedies? Any ways to flavor water without adding tons of sugar?

    Flavored stevia is good. I have berry and peppermint right now.

    There are tons of other flavors also.


    What about drinking gingerale? That is what I drank my whole first pregnancy.

    Oh yeah, water still tastes metallic. I have to put stevia or something in my water even now for me to drink it. We even have "fancy" reverse osmosis water.

    Good luck!

    My nausea wasn't as bad as yours, but I used Emetrol. It's an OTC syrup like cough syrup.

    ~I'm sorry, that sounds horrible. Have you talked to your health care provider? It actually might fall under hyperemisis and be treatable with a prescription. ((hug))~

    I had that same problem with my daughter, the dry heaves and throwing up stuff when there is nothing left in your stomache. This is a suggestion, are you taking the vitamins the doctor prescribed, these could be making you sick, my daughter when she was pregnant had the same problem, she switched to childrens multivitamins and it helped.

    Talk to your doctor.

    I can't help with the nausea but this link was very interesting. It talks about ways to avoid the enamel erosion and I didn't realize the other foods/drinks on the list also caused erosion:

    Sorry, I didn't have to go through this my first semester. I had evening sickness instead so just skipped suppers.

    I lounged in bed until 10 a.m and ate crackers before getting up (yes crackers in bed, ha!) just to ward off any potential issues.

    I tried everything with my last pregnancy the Dr had to offer as I lost weight like crazy and got very underweight. . Even though there is a squeem factor to it I finally ended up with an anti nausea med that was a suppository form. I'm sorry but I cant remember the name. If it gets bad enough it is an option. I still vomited but it wasn't 24/7 at least and gained back at least a few of the 27 lbs I lost. I hope you feel better soon!

    Thank you all for the suggestions. I have an appointment Monday. I'll bring it up with my doctor. I'll also look into the other things you suggested. I'll keep you all posted!

    Ugh I feel your pain! I had it nonstop from week 4-17 of my last pregnancy. As far as zofran goes, it did nothing for me. Hope you can find something that works for you!
