Awww hun so sorry for this I remember my sickness and it was real bad when I had it. Not as, bad as yours though. Are you managing to keep any food and fluids down? If not or the amount your bringing up is worrying you speak to your gp/midwife there is some medicine they can give you which will be safe if they prescribe it in pregnancy. Hopefully this will end for you soon hun. I hate being sick it's the worst.

Good luck hun 💗😊😘

Thanks for the concern, i cannot keep anything down, even the water i am having is getting thrown out, its a terrible terrible situation, visited a doctor and she advised me this medicine named Doxiante, is it right to have medicines while you are pregnant though this tablet if I have it helps me i am a little skeptical about it. :(

I'm sure it will be OK if it stops you being sick then your managing to keep nutrients in your body for the baby to be able to absorb it's not Good for you or baby if you can't keep anything down. I know your cause for concern about taking meds hun I'm exactly the same but if it's going to help and nothing else has and your gp prescribed knowing your pregnant it's fine xx

God bless you xoxoxoxo

Awwww bless ya don't thank me hun. Tbh I'm the same with meds I can go as far as saying I don't agree with them but sometimes if all other natural things fail we need the help as long as that help is safe there isn't problem sometimes you have to weigh up pros and cons. I would have felt same in your position. Hope the sickness calms down and you can start enjoying your pregnancy now. If you ever want to chat I'm here 💗🤗😘

Hello

Please see your GP if the tablets aren't working and they can help you more If you are unable to

keep food and drink down its important to see a Doctor as you don't want to become dehydrated

Things that may help

Are you able to suck on ice as that's sometimes a way to get some fluid

getting plenty of rest - tiredness can make the sickness worse

eating dry toast / plain biscuit

eating small regular meals

also distracting yourself as much as you can takes your mind off it

More information can be found on the NHS Choices Website

I was like that all the way through till about 20 weeks. I'm 22 weeks pregnant now. I went to a&e cause it got so bad I fainted with lack of food etc. They prescribed me anti sickness tablets which are ok in pregnancy. If you are really bad they should definitely work go to your gp or even an urgent care centre and they should prescribe you them.

Hope everything goes ok xx

Hello if you are not able to keep food or water down deffinatley go to your gp it sounds like HG and it may mean your dehydrated . They can hopefully give you tablets which would be safe for pregnancy or give you I.v fluids to rehydrate you. Xx

okay it is pretty obvious in the first trimester but you can have good times by doing a bit of things like never keep your stomach empty, eat something as soon as you get up in the morning, and I've been drinking an herbal tea "no to morning sickness tea" of secretsoftea to ease my nausea which was a great help.
