Sorry for long rant...I ’m Now 15 weeks pregnant via ivf. Iv wanted this for so long, have gone through such emotional turmoil as well as financial strain to get to this point. However, whilst I’m still desperate for our baby I’m finding pregnancy very hard. Iv been throwing up everyday and throughout the day for 9 weeks. I’v been to hospital as got so dehydrated I could barely stand. Thankfully I was not put on a drip (although close to that point) but was given antisickness tablets instead. My body seams to keep adjusting to the meds as they don’t work for long (I’m on my third type now-cyclizine) and I’m throwing up several times a day even when taking the tablets.
I havnt been allowed to drive so I’m also isolated.
The smell of everything makes me heave particularly washing powder, shampoo and cleaning products.
I throw up if I move too much like going up and down the stairs so I’m getting motion sickness to.
My own saliva makes me feel so ill.
I struggle to keep down fluids. Every tiny sip triggers huge waves of nausea. If I accidentally take a double sip or a big sip I’ll throw up.
Luckily Iv not had aversions to food but everything I eat is like Russian roulette....some things may stay down other things won’t. By the way what stayed down yesterday is not guaranteed to stay down today😫
I have had 9 weeks of this and there is no sign of improvement. I’m beginning to lose my mind and get very down about it.
Has anyone experienced this? What have you found that helps? Iv tried all the obvious things including ginger, acupressure bands, fizzy drinks, hot drinks, cold drinks, room temperature drinks. Dry crackers and toast etc.
I guess I’m looking for a magic wand, better drugs or just an understanding Comrad.
