So.. at first I was ecstatic that I had morning sickness because you hear good things about the baby being healthy and whatnot. However, the past few days have been nothing but nausea and vomiting. It's interfering with my work - and we definitely need my paycheck. I can't do anything at home except sit on the couch with the trash can. DH has had pizza 3 out of the 4 nights this week. I know they say after the first trimester it eases off, but what can I do now to help? I can't lose my job..and I can't piss DH off too too much. Here's what I've done so far:
I have preggie pop drops. They're sour candies that say they have ginger in them, but..regardless, when I have one of those in my mouth I'm usually okay for the moment. However, they give me heartburn and some of the flavors aren't so great. Plus, at 6 bucks for 12 pieces of candy plus shipping - I'm thinking about switching to life savors or something..
I went out and bought Sea Bands just now. I don't know if they're working yet, because I had those drops in my mouth when I went out because I didn't want to vomit in the store.
I've tried Saltines and Ginger Ale. Thing is, if my stomach gets too empty, I start gagging. And I'd have to eat the entire box of Saltines to get any fullness.
I LOVE Mountain Dew. I know you're not supposed to have a whole bunch of Caffeine so I've cut down dramatically on the amount of Dew I drink. However, yesterday I noticed that whenever I DO drink a Dew, I'm sick very quickly afterwards. So today I haven't drank any. Still threw up all day though.
So, anyone have any ideas? Any help would be great.. Thanks!
