Nausea and Vomitting First Trimester of Pregnancy

Hi, I am 8 weeks pregnant and this is my second pregnancy. I have a very bad nausea and vomiting during this pregnancy compare to my first pregnancy. It often happens in the evening and it also comes with a headache. I have tried some remedies like eating more often but in a small portion or try to avoid food that gave nausea but those did not work at all. So, is there any medicine that I can take to reduce my nausea, headache, and vomiting?

A Dr is likely to tell you not to take meds unless absolutely necessary I couldn't even keep water down and was rupturing blood vessels in stomach an throat so they put me on cyclizine but you really need to speak to your Dr before taking any medication while pregnant


Most over the counter medicine is not appropriate, so you have to see a doctor for medication. Have you tried ginger, ginger biscuits or ginger ale? Works for some people


So sorry to hear you're feeling so awful. There are a few remedies you can use. Ginger like the previous reply is the most common but peppermint tea, lemongrass and wrist pressure point bands also work well. Give them a go and see if they help.

Good luck


The doctor can give you pills for nausea


Hi there, I had terrible morning sickness morning til night. The Gp prescribed me two things, cyclozine an anti emetic which is anti nausea kind of what they use for travel sickness, and phenegran which is an anti histamine and stops the brain receptors from feeling nauseas. Phenegran worked the best for me though.

My sickness happened between 10-12 times a day and I was signed off work for a month. I'm now 26 weeks +5 and still I might get a day of vomiting in the morning. Everyone's different but the gp reassured me because it was making me miserable that it's the sign of nice strong hormones and your baby has a firm grip of that uterus lol did make me feel a bit better.. good luck 😃
