Re: When can I eat normal? Need to vent..
Girl, if anyone can relate it's me. I am the queen of m/s. I usually only type in the may mommies board, but I saw this and had to stop by. I am 40 weeks tomorrow with baby #5, and yes, i'm still barfing everyday. And it's nothing new to me. All of my pg's have been this way. I've tried every stupid home remedy I heard of from saltine crackers to ginger root tea and unfortunatly there is no cure. But this pg my doc gave me Reglan and it made a huge difference. It allowed me to roll out of bed and actually eat, and about 90% of the time I kept the food down. I don't take it now bc my m/s is actually only in the morning now and then i'm fine for the rest of the day. My doc told me that m/s is still kind of a mystery, but one study they did showed that certain races and cultures are affected more than others. He said for example, eskimos seem to be affected more severely than anyone else in the study. I found that interesting. But i'm not eskimo, i'm italian, so why am I so sick. Who knows. The only other relief I could find beside the reglan was to chug a glass of water and just throw up, as much as I hate throwing up. But then afterward I could eat something and it would usually stay down. Another thing, as much as you just want to pig out, don't. that makes you throw up too. Eat just enough to not be hungry. If you fill your gut you will be throwing up all night. I know it sucks, but it should end soon.
