What do you do for nausea?

Mine wasn't bad to start out with, but for some reason when I hit 12 weeks it got progressively worse. Now I'm throwing up daily. It's not as bad as it was with #1 but crackers and dramamine aren't cutting it anymore. I have a 1 1/2 year old and can't spend my days hovering over the toilet, lol. Although I don't vomit more than once a day I feel nauseous all day long.

Herbal tea with ginger or mint, gingerale, peppermints-the red and white ones, raisins (don't know why but worked for my 3 am nausea). If it gets too bad ask your doc for anti-nausea meds.

Re: What do you do for nausea?

I am 27wks and I still throw up atleast twice a day and some days like you just feel really nauseate. My dr. gave me zophran it don't cause drowness because I have an 8yr old that I homeschool so I can't be sick all day or asleep all day.

I was told when I feel nauseated don't drink water it makes it worse I ended up in the hospital for almost a week dehydrated and the main reason I stayed so sick was because I was drinking lots of water trying to stay hydrated. The nurse at the hospital gave me a coke and told me that it would stay down and it did it was the first thing that stayed down in days after that I stayed away from water and started feeling alot better.

I had really bad ms with my DD too. There is a prescription they can give you, phenergran which helped me.

Also, ginger ale helped and you can look online for Preggy Pops. They are lollipops with ginger in them and I thought they were great.

Re: What do you do for nausea?

There are two things I want to say, ginger and peppermint are great for nausea. The other thing you need to know is that extra acid is being produced in the stomach and to control this, as much as you do not want to eat, you must stay ahead of the acid because it is a cause of the nausea. I was DETERMINED to learn and cure my nausea. I took ginger and I ate foods with ginger in them and you can also inhale the scent of peppermint essential oil (awesome for headaches too!) Once I found a few foods that I could eat, I kept eating and eating and immediately the nausea stopped, but you have to keep eating. Give this a try or try researching this before you take drugs that could be harmful to the baby and yourself.
