Morning sickness cures

Morning sickness cures

Hallmar82 Hallmar82
My wife and I are getting ready to have our first baby. However, pregnancies have always been very difficult on her side of the family. In particular, morning sickness and preeclampsia is a big concern. Does anyone have any experience with things that worked well for you or someone you know?
Thanks!

I tried many things for morning sickness and they would work the first few times and then they would quit working. My temporary successes were, a few saltines first thing even before going to the bathroom, ginger snaps same deal, ginger tea in the morning, peppermint tea in the morning, a weird bracelet thing with a hard plastic bump, (that one worked a whole week) and there were others I have forgotten. If I remember I'll add them. JR had a suggestion the other day. I will see if I can find it for you! Just remember that as long as you aren't loosing weight at a rapid rate it is okay. Hopefully it goes away around week 16. Preecampsia is much more serious and your Dr will keep an eye on your blood pressure and advise you about that. I hope it all goes well for you both!

Edited to add JR's link. But good luck convincing a nauseated pregnant woman!

With both of my pregnancies, the only thing that worked for morning sickness was Zofran. After losing 20 lbs at the beginning of my first pregnancy, and 12 with the second, I honestly don't know what I would've done without it.

Sea bands saved me! They are little bands that go on your wrists that look similar to sweat bands and are commonly used for motion sickness. They were awesome! Keep crackers next to the bed and eat a couple in the morning before even getting up.

My husband sent me an article claiming that swallowing sperm (as in at the end of a blowjob) can help. I told him that was damn convenient, but who knows...

Thanks for the input everyone. We'll keep some of it in mind. As for the blowjob paper, I read part of it, and I'm not sure I trust the biochemistry of a psychiatrist - especially when it comes to correlational studies.

I've had experience with both. For morning sickness, try peppermint tea and ginger tea. They will help settle the stomach.

I had pre-e in my first pregnancy. In my second pregnancy I had a different provider who told me to eat very, very healthfully, drink lots of water, and eat a TON of protein, loads of fruits and veggies of all different colors. I deviated from the diet for a little while and my blood pressure shot up. Back on and it went back down.

I hope that helps! Good luck!

I agree.

Hyperemesis of Pregnancy can be very serious. I had it with my kids, although not as badly as many (I still gained weight, but it did cause a loss of productivity on my part. When you are too nauseous to eat or get out of bed, you NEED medical help.)

My doctor gave me an over the counter drug the first time (doxylamine, sold as an OTC sleep aid, the same drug as the drug Bendictin, which had been discontinued although nothing was every proven wrong with it) and I got Zofran and Compazine the third time.

The health of the baby and the mother can be seriously compromised by Hyperemisis. If it is severe, treating it with meds that are safe (like Zofran or even compazine) is warrented if she can't function, loses weight or it impacts her ablity to function.

Home remedies did NOTHING for me at all. And ginger has been found to cause problems in some pregnancies. If it's bad enough, get medical help.

I hope she's OK this time.

Thanks for all of the input. Unfortunately, my wife's gyn just recommended she get a partial hysterectomy. We're going to think about it some more before giving it a go again.
