Re: Constant Nausea

I am 7 weeks and the nausea just kicked in within the past week...and to top it off, I had a genuine puking virus over the weekend. I've always been naturally prone to nausea and vomiting my whole life. If I get sick, I puke. If I get a bad enough headache, I puke. I had it down to an artform BEFORE I got pregnant. Now, people want to tell me to do a Vitamin B6 lollipop? Um, I'm frustrated...and I'm not in the mood to talk about the "joys" of motherhood. Does anyone else work at a job where you can't be standing around sucking on a lollipop? Seriously! I have my ginger ale. A piece of strong mint gum helps for a few minutes...but like, once the gum is done (like 5 minutes for me), it's over. Once my ginger ale is gone...guess who's back! I've eaten plain corn chex cereal for dinner. The worst thing about this nausea is that I can't puke. Don't have my OB appointment for another 3 weeks. I've taken some dramamine. I'm an NP, so I'm pretty comfortable treating myself...it worked pretty well...and it's pregnancy category B (which is almost as good as it gets). I refuse to be a crazy granola mom. Grrrr...don't feel well.
