For most women, morning sickness goes away completely or at least lessens considerably once they're in their second trimester. For some women it comes back in the third trimester. And then for some women, like me, morning sickness sticks around the entire pregnancy. I was literally puking from morning sickness the day my son was born. It felt like I'd be nauseous for the rest of my life! But as soon as he was born, no more morning sickness. To help settle your tummy, try ginger, peppermint, saltines, Sprite, dry toast, even Pepto Bismol. Some women swear by Sea Bands - those wristbands you can get for seasickness. A friend of mine said Preggie Pops were what got her through her morning sickness. For me none of that stuff helped at all, and most even made it worse. If nothing natural or over-the-counter seems to help, ask your doctor about Zofran. Ask to try both the kind you swallow and the one that dissolves on your tongue. Even the little bit of water it took to swallow the pill made me vomit, so the dissolving kind was a lifesaver. Good luck and congratulations!
Mine came back in the third trimester with my second pregnancy. Just wanted to forewarn you. Sprite/7up or club soda and saltine crackers. That's what my gran told me to eat when it was bad. Good luck!
With my last one, I had it for 9 months! It was terrible! It's been 18 years & I remember clearly! Also, I was told that if you're really sick, you're child will be a genius! My son has a genius IQ! Out of 4, he's the only one with an IQ that high! Old wives tale? I don't know!
It stopped for my wife, who carried twins, when she took a liquid mineral supplement according to it's directions. Her symptoms, which were severe, were completely gone after three days. Of course follow your OB's advice, or not, which is what my wife did because nothing else worked.
Usually after the first trimester the nausea goes away and you will feel wonderful. I lost 15 lbs in the first month due to nausea until I found what helped me. Thanks to a suggestion from my midwife, ginger water was my salvation. Heat a couple of cups of water to a boil and put in 2 or 3 quarter sized slices of fresh ginger root then remove from the heat and let set till cool and add more water to make a half gallon. You can sweeten it with a bit of honey or date sugar is good too. I kept it in the frig and drank it when I was thirsty. I had a glass by my bed at night to sip because "morning sickness" does not always happen in the morning. Ginger root is available in the produce section of the grocery store or you could try ginger ale (make sure it has real ginger as an ingredient) or some of the ginger candies that are usually next to the motion sickness pills in the pharmacy section. Congratulations and hope your nausea goes away soon.
