So, I'm over 20 weeks and still throwing up pretty much daily. I haven't figured out what sparks it - I can eat something and be fine and eat the SAME THING later and not be fine. Yesterday, at DH's uncles house - I threw up my Thanksgiving dinner. DH came to see what was wrong, he kneeled down in front of me and held my hand.... and I just started crying. I felt so bad that I had thrown up what everyone had worked so hard to cook and I'm so SICK of being sick to my stomach. I've been doing pretty good... throw up and move on. But it's really really getting to me lately. When he kneeled down in front of me looking all concerned, I couldn't keep the "I'm fine" face going.
I know his family thinks I'm nuts for crying.
That sucks Jessica. I'm so so so sorry. I can't believe you are still so sick. What does your doc say? Is there anything else besides zofran that will help? I know what it feels like to be sick and just tired of it. I cried a lot after throwing up and would always say "I'm going to have M/S forever." I can't say mine went away entirely...I had a small throw up episode last week. But its much better than it was.
I will keep you in my thoughts. Seeing your little baby on the ultrasound tomorrow will make it all better, I promise.
I wish more than anything you just wake up tomorrow and it's gone for the rest of the pregnancy!!
Is it possible that it's become a reaction to food instead of the actual needto vomit? I know (don't ask) that sometimes when you vomit a bunch, your body assumes that's what it's supposed to do, regardless of anything else.. Please ask your doc for anything else you can do. This is just soo unfair.
Ugh, I don't even know what to say!! I can't believe it is still this hard for you!! Have you tried talking to the OB again about it? I pray this gets better for you!!!
I would have cried a million time already! It's so miserable that you're still so sick at this point. I'm 100% sure DH's family does NOT think you're crazy for crying. Surely they understand that anyone would be miserable after throwing up for 4 months straight.

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I feel so awful for you. I know someone who was sick all through her pregnancies - and she has 6 kids!! She was able to get a special drug from Canada that worked well though. But she said that it was like the SECOND that kid came out, she felt great and wanted to eat!
I have no words for you; maybe just talk to your doc again about a different medication?? I dunno. I know that I was so ready to be done with the m/s at 13 weeks and I didn't even have it that bad. :/
I am so sorry sweetie! Thats awful! I hate that you're still so sick! Do not think think for one second that they think you're crazy! I'm sure they totally understand and feel for you. I hope it eases up for you soon. You just cry all you need to! Its totally understandable!
