Re: Unable to eat & loosing weight

My second pregnancy my morning sickness was by far the worst. I did end up starting meds around 4 or 5 weeks with her. I was never put on zofran but instead did the vit b6/ unisom cocktail.

 

The drug in unisom tabs has been used for morning sickness in women for over 50 years and is very safe to take during pregnancy. It doesn't cross the placenta but it should help keep food down.

 

The other enormous thing that I have learned- drink more water. It is WAY worse when you are dehydrated. It is really hard to get water down at first especially when you feel like it will come back up (and it probably is coming back up already anyways) but I think that is the main reason this is the only pregnancy that I have actually been able to discontinue meds after the first trimester. Even if the only thing you can get down is juice or gatorade, it does help ease the nausea and vomiting and can be the difference between being miserable at home or miserable getting fluids at the hospital.
