Giving birth. This is a tough one women have been dealing with a long time. Avoiding things that make you sick, antacid medications, and even antinausea meds can all help. Morning sickness is thought to be sign of a very healthy pregnancy, which may be of some comfort. Some women get so much nausea they need IV fluids or even feeding. Good news is that each pregnancy is different, next time may be different.
Ginger. Consider freshly brewed organic ginger tea or slightly flattened ginger ale. Take care.
Homeopathy. There are multiple homeopathic remedies that can safely help nausea in pregnancy -- and will work even when conventional treatments do not. You would need to see a homeopath to select the best remedy for you though, since there are over 100 possible choices. Each of the remedies has a slightly different & unique picture that must match your symptoms precisely, in order to help you.
Nausea in pregnancy. Pregnancy hormones increases your gag reflex. Timing, quality and quantity of food becomes critical to prevent nausea. Avoid hypoglycemia by eating complex carbohydrates such as non-citric fruits. Fatty, spicy, tomato based meals should be avoided late in the day. Small multiple meals (every 3-4 hours) are preferred to the traditional 3 squares. Consult your physician about reflux.
I agree but. If u are miserable or vomiting, you can use medicine. Zofran 8 mg tablet, 1/2 2x per day, Phenergan (promethazine) 25 mg at night, may cause drowsiness. If associated with insomnia, anxiety and depression, mirtazpaine blocks 5ht-3 just like zofran, helps with sleep, appetite and anxiety. A Medrol dose pack if it's severe, ginger can help, b-12 and unisom together can help; at times reflux adds so zantac 75 da.
Very. It has actual physiological underpinnings and likely evolutionary/teleological advantage by helping the pregnant woman avoid potential teratogens/toxic foods. Most women will experience some nausea in the first half of pregnancy.
See below. Ginger ale though sometimes plain sprite works better. Eating frequent mini meals helps. If it persists, contact your doctor especially if you are unable to eat or keep food down.
See your OB. Nausea during pregnancy has many causes, many of them depend upon the time of the pregnancy, that is early vs later term. Consult with your ob.
Morning sickness. Eat slowly and in small amounts every one to two hours to avoid a full stomach. Eat before, or as soon as, you feel hungry to avoid an empty stomach, which can make nausea worse. A snack before getting out of bed in the morning may help. Fluids may be better tolerated if cold, clear, carbonated or sour; like ginger ale or lemonade. If this fails, some meds include pyridoxine or diphenhydramine.
Call your OB doc. Amny things your OB doc should be telling you taht as I know what I tell my pts but you need to get in teh habit of directing all your? S to the doc who will be doing your delivery, non script things are ginger products, b- natal pops, prima bella wrist band.
Several medications. Some women do well with vitamin b-6 for nausea. Meclizine works well for many women, but may cause you to be sleepy. I frequently prescribe zofran (ondansetron) which works for almost all my patients who take it. When the nausea and vomiting are severe, hydration with IV fluids is sometimes necessary, and almost always effective. Good luck, the nausea usually peaks at 10 to 12 weeks the starts to improve.
Normal. Nausea and feel using tired are normal in the first trimester of pregnancy. The Progesterone made by your corpus luteum tends to make you feel sleepy. The nausea is okay unless you get to the point where you're not holding liquids down. If you're having problems, there is medication that can help. Just contact your obstetrician. The good news is that this usually goes away in the second trimester.
Call your OB doc. There are script meds that are cat b and non med things like prima bella wrist band but if the nausea just started u need blood work to r/o certain things so call your OB and u need to get in the habit of directing these? S to yoru OB just like I instruct all my pts to do.
No. Not common.
Ginger. Ginger can reduce nausea & upset stomach. You can drink slightly flattened ginger ale or nibble on crystallized ginger. Or pour boiling water over freshly sliced organic ginger & steep x 5 min in a covered pot. Sip.
