I have been having the most terrible "morning" sickness for the past three weeks - it kicked in dead on when I turned 6 weeks pregnant and has been unrelenting since. Basically, I feel sick morning, noon and night with some small patches where I feel a bit better and I can never work out what it was I did that made the nausea go away!
I tend to be actually sick about 3-5 times a day, though it's got less frequent in the past few days. In fact, the late afternoon is starting, slowly, to feel a bit better for me, but I am so afraid to speak too soon as I know some women have this for weeks in end into late pregnancy (please God no!).
I am so lucky that my GP has been amazingly understanding and has signed me off for the past 3 weeks. I am definitely not fit to work - I work face to face with individuals all day long and cannot just go off to vomit or get a cold drink/splash my face etc. The GP also prescribed me Metclopramide, which I have found a little bit of a help but to be honest, it often make me so, so drowsy that I fall asleep drooling on an easy chair in the lounge each afternoon (my routine at the moment pretty much consists of just sitting in my lounge all day every day now because the nausea just consumes me so i can't be bothered to do anything and am afraid to move for fear it will trigger my sickness!).
So, so far I have tried:
Taking separate folic acid - NOT supplement with iron in (swear this has helped the most so far as I was often sick straight after taking my sevenseas multi vit, which has iron in it! - Not now though!)
Time off work
Not pushing self to do too much
Trying to go for a walk to get some cool, fresh air
Eating little and often (big change for me as before I would have no breakfast, large lunch/dinner and then couple of snacks in evening). Eating in smaller more frequent meals definitely helps me though
"Seabands" - personally, they did not work for me as I have been sick several times when wearing them!!
Avoiding cooking as much as possible/cooked food smells
Avoiding strong odours like husband's aftershave (he is being so good and not wearing it for me recently!), also washing myself plenty as even my own y=underarm smell made me sick recently - embarrassing!
Ginger and mint teas - used to love these before MS but less so now : /
Just wondering if there are any other tips/advice people have that I didn't already try?
Thanks for any and all tips!! : D
