If you threw up for majority of your 1st labour .....

Did you for 2nd/subsequent labours?

Is there anything I can do to minimize it??


  • I don't know but i'd be interested to find out.  This was the worst bit of my labour! Thankfully not all of it, but the last 6-8 hours! Not I gues that it matters as i'll have ELCS if there is a next time!

    I figure, E was back to back and stuck and it started when I went onto the induction/speed up drip without pain relief and the MW said it was a reaction to the pain (though hadn't stopped sie  weeks pregnant TBH) - so i'm thinking with a nicer labour would come less vomitting

  • Would also be interested to know this! I didn't have a 'bad' labour, but it was obviously still painful - aren't they all?! So I imagine if our bodies are throwing up in reaction to the pain (my MW said the same), we will next time too. It makes you so exhausted though doesn't it? I really needed energy for my mammoth pushing session but had nothing in me. If there is a next time I'm going to try glucose tablets and hope they help when all liquid is rejected!

  • Well, it made my H physically ill too haha so I had to send him out! Reading back through my notes I thought I was having pain relief injected but it was actually anti sickness.  I ended up with a c section and constantly being pumped with anti sickness meds in theatre too.  (They didn't help!). I was given anti sickness tabs too which obviously I bought back up!

  • I'm sorry ladies, but yes I threw up for a most of the second stage of both my labours.

    With the first I thought it was caused by the gas and air, but I didn't have any until the stage three of my second labour and still found myself unable to stop being sick once I hit the second stage.

    Hopefully somebody else will come along and say differently, as I'm quite sure this is not what you wanted to hear.

    No, is isnt!! Laugh

    But good to be prepared in advance i suppose Indifferent

  • Nfti it is good to know, though unfortunate! I did suspect as much as I was throwing up before trying g&a - though just the tube in my mouth made it worse so I ended up with nada. Not part of the plan!

    LM - I wasn't offered any jiffing any sickness stuff! Though it doesn't sound like it did anything anyhow! How awful still being sick during your CS, and your H too - what a disaster!

  • i was sick 3 or 4 times during my first labour but not at all with my second
