early pregnancy sickness

Hi all, after trying for a number of years to fall pregnant (inc. 3x ivf), we have finally managed it the 'natural' way and are over the moon.

However the nausia and vomiting are horrendous. I dont want to complain as im over the moon to be pregnant, but feeling pretty poorly at the mo. I have anti-sickness bands on, but the slightest movement, walking, sitting up etc and im vomiting. I'm finding it difficult to go out as I have to get off the buses before my stop. I've tried ginger, water, biscuits, fruitjuice, fresh fruit and small nibbles of whatever I fancy at the time, but the result is always the same, about an hour after eating i'm vomiting. It has got a bit easier as at least I can get out of bed now! The vitamins and fish oil pregnancy tablets I have dont stay down long at all. Any advice anyone. Today, I am also feeling incredibly emotional too.

Thanks jea

You have mentioned the things I would have suggested ie nibbling biscuits etc. What helped me most when I had bad sickness with my first pregnancy was to eat rich tea biscuits BEFORE I got up out of bed in the morning as it was the movement that started it off. If I lined my tummy it was not as bad, and even if I was still sick it was not so acid and throat burning after a biscuit. What I can say is that awful as it is now it should all settle down at around 3 months when the hormones settle a little. It is a hard time for your body and mind.

Hi! How many weeks are you in pregnancy? Morning sickness is usually at its peak during the 1st trimester but it may extend up to the second, just like my experience. I didn't take much of my vitamins too for I didn't like its smell as well as other foods. I believe you should have small frequent feedings instead of heavy ones. And eat crackers and non-caffeinated food and drinks for it increases dizziness as well as headache. Good luck!

Hi, I'm in week 10 now, still cant quite believe it! I hope (touching wood) that the sickness has got a bit better now. The weird thing is that I do feel sick most of the time, but then the sickness actually sneaks up on me. I managed to get out yesterday to the city on the bus, only the second time since I found out I was pregnant. I decided to get a day ticket so that if I did feel too bad I could get off then on to the next one if I needed to. I feel shattered today and feeling a bit achey. I think I can now feel changes happening around my middle, sometimes feeling stretched and bloated. Because my son is 18 I cant remember what it was like the first time around.

I have taken the advice on here and most of the time it works.

Tahnks all.

Morning sickness is not the most accurate term for what most women experience. You may feel more sick in the morning, but nausea can strike at any time of the day or night. Morning sickness can take over your life while you have it.
