Morning sickness aka all day sickness



Recommended Posts

I am 9 months post op and 8 weeks pregnant, morning sickness is killing me all day. Drinking Water makes it worse. Does anyone have any tips? Having the smaller stomach definitely isn’t helping 😞

Wow. It's been a while since I've experienced morning sickness. I have four adult children. The trigger for me was smell. That really escalated by nausea. Because meds are something I wouldn't risk taking (particularly at this crucial, early-developing stage of pregnancy), I remember just having to live with it for a while. sleeping was a way to not deal with the sickness.

Are there any other liquids that you can tolerate? Dairy tends to add to nausea. What about soy milk? Coconut or almond milk? Sip on decaf hot tea.

Nausea during pregnancy is, unfortunately, one of those leftover things from evolution. In order to ensure the survival of new life, we were warned about eating bad or poisonous food by making sure we had heightened senses for smell and taste. Hormonal levels come into play as well. It's a lousy scenario, but one that millions and billions of women have had to endure. I know that's no comfort for you as an individual.

Is this your first baby?

Saltine crackers. Ginger ale works for some. That can last for a while, though some women just experience it for the 1st trimester. I had “morning” sickness at any given time of the day up until I was like 7 1/2 months. Water made me nauseous too.

@courtb86 I would try to chew on ginger. Yes, raw ginger. Just peel the skin and chew or suck on it, put it in decaf hot tea. It's spicy but it's natural and tends to rid nausea almost instantly. Did for me in my first trimester. I wouldn't drink any carbonated bevs as this point just because it isn't a good idea for a bariatric patient. Good luck to you and your baby.:)

Yeah I don’t drink soda so ginger ale is out of the question. I’m just so nervous I won’t be able to gain weight during the pregnancy because I feel like crap and I eat small meals anyway

@courtb86 reach out to your Dr.s (bariatric surgeon and nutritionist) because they can give you tips and get you on a diet regiment specifically for you and baby as a bariatric patient. Along with food, drink and Vitamin supplements, you should be fine. There are other moms out there that are in the same boat as you! ;)

I am in the same boat. 7 wls and nothing helps but sleeping all day. I'm even nauseated while sleep. I tried toasted bread and plain mashed potatoes but unfortunately while laying down on my side was the only way I can tolerate it. Dizziness is also and issue maybe from dehydration. Try Gatorade or Powerade ZERO, I'm still trying to find something that works also.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
