dealing with severe sickness
Hi, I'm at the start (week 10) of my 3rd pregnancy, and had no sickness with my two girls....I've just spent that last week bedbound with a bucket! Yuck! any tips / advice other than "eat little and often" or "eat plenty of ginger"???
I never realised morning sickness could be this severe, I feel for any of you who've already been through this I really do.
Hiya Wendy - hope your feeling better soon - it does pass!!! No consolation at the moment though - one word though .....Ginger Nut Biscuits (well 3 words to be exact!!) i found them really helpful with my morning sickness....hope its of help to you too - good luck !!!
thank you....what a God send, amazing what helps really, cucumber does too!!!
not getting any less sick, just learning to handle it better!!!
Marmite was the thing for me.I had to have a marmite sandwich,white bread,absolutely not wrapped in clingfilm cos I could taste that too,and I had to have it every morning at work at 11 0'clock.Couldn't stomach cereal of any kind.
Digestives were good,even half a digestive is better than nothing.Ginger biscuits were good.The worst time was making the older children's breakfasts and rushing round getting them ready for school,I think the smells of their cereal and toast,getting their lunches,the noise and stress seemed to make it worse.It does pass though,suprisingly you forget all that
Hope you feel better soon
Mine was between 18 to 20 weeks,but getting less often,not every day.
I don't get severe sickness,mines more nausea and severe headaches,but I have trouble balancing blood sugar when I'm not pregnant,so expect mine was more to do with that.
If you're worried about it,see your midwife or GP.There's a thread somewhere about hyperemesis,when it's really severe.
