Currently 17 weeks pregnant. My first moment of sickness was in April at around 10 weeks. I was doing a job where I had to stand for 30 minutes, the room went hazy and I dry heaved in the corner. I put this to tiredness and exhaustion at the time and not sickness. I didn’t have another episode like this for another week where I was stood in a queue waiting for some food and the room went hazy again and I dry heaved a few times outside.
I’ve only been physically sick once which is when I took liquid iron on an empty stomach.
I thought I was doing ok but this weekend I was away I dry heaved after a bus journey and whilst in kings cross station.
The only things I can relate it to is when I’m anxious, not eating / over eating, tiredness and just pure panic.
I’m just fed up of feeling sick and dry heaving all over the place, it’s embarrassing and it makes you feel down, to the point I’m scared to go out incase it happens when I’m out and in public.
I’ve tried all the eat ginger biscuits, water, herbal teas.. but it just seems to trigger.
I’ve contacted my midwife today to try and get some anti sickness as it’s just making me isolated and not wanting to leave the house. I thought by 17 weeks I’d feel better so I’m just frustrated and disappointed
