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.:)

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.
