Pregnancy articles & tips
Let Huggies give you a guiding hand through your 9 months of pregnancy with practical tools, articles, tips and advice to help you along your path to motherhood.
I'm still sick pretty much every day.. it's a rare day indeed that I don't have my morning heave. I was like this with DD and DS - right up til the moment they injected me with Maxalon in the delivery room :S
Plus side was I lost roughly 20kgs with both of them. Down side was I put it all on again! lol
I've been eating quite averagely this pregnancy so I wonder if I will have lost any weight.. hope so! lol
I found that sipping on Berocca helped me a little. You can get these things called Sea Bands from chemists - they press on pressure points in your wrist which can help with motion or morning sickness.
You could also try acupuncture.
Could also get some ginger and cut about 5 thin slices and add them to boiling water and sip that slowly too.
Other than that - eat whatever you think you can stomach - even if it's junk, it's still something in your stomach which can help you feel better.
Hopefully it passes for you like it did for me smile
Sea bands do help a little but I've just had to get used to puking.
Practice your pelvic floor exercises otherwise when the really bad heaves take you, you run the risk of weeing yourself as well.
The joys of motherhood.
Mother to 2 + 1 soon
I am exactly the same =(....
I am 14 weeks and still have disgusting morning/night/lunch sickness and mine is the same not actually throwing up just feeling like you have had a massive night out the night before (this is how I described it my friends who thought I was whinging about nothing cos I wasn't actually throwing up)...
I agree with the other ladies, as hard as it is try and eat something....anything. At the very beginning I lived on fruit and bread for about 6 weeks...(lots of grapes and watermelon)
I have now been talked into getting the motion sickness wrist bands and I find them to be working...could be worth a go (anything is worth a go at this point....)
Hope it eases up for you....the joys of pregnancy =)
I had severe all day sickness with my 1st till 18wks so I'm doing everything to avoid it this time, eating every 2hrs even though I don't really feel like I want more food..but it's really important not to let your stomach completely empty.
Hope you get some relief soon.
Try asking your GP / OB for some Maxalon tablets - they will kill the nausea and are safe to take during pregnancy.
Hope things get better honey!
this time round i felt sick but wasnt actually sick. but this time im now 19 weeks and no energy with still feeling sick to boot. the slighest smell sets me off and i feel totally pathetic. i cant even stomach the thought of having a rubbish bag inside anymore. dont even get me started on the thought of public toilets - just cant do it.
cant wait till this passes.
I've found ginger beer to be helpful and living on dry crackers. Two minute noodles are quick and easy and as gross as this is, are nice and gentle on the way back up if you can't keep them down. Chocolate is also good.
