Zofran...Prima Bella watch...unisome & B6...sick of being sick!!

Well, Like my last pgcy's I've been on zofran since week 6. Still vomiting and always sick to my tummy. The dr. Rx'd me a script for the Prima Bella watch which helps a bit when I am wearing it and it's on. It only lasts for 100 hrs though.

Things that have helped (for others in this situation):

wint-o-green life savers
salty dry things
Zofran but will still vomit at times after taking it
Prima Bella watch helps whith tummy upset but won't stop me from vomiting if i started.
Coke cola... helps settle tummy a lot Sad I know it's not good for me though.
Sour things
Nectarines

B6 & Unisom.... Not really

what has helped others???

What about preggy pops? I use the preggy pop drops and they taste really good and I swear by them as far as helping with nausea!

Preggie pops help me too, but I'm starting to get sick of them...I can't eat the lemon ones anymore.

I've been having good luck with apples and nectarines. Crackers help on occasion, but I'm sick of those too.

As for drinks, ginger ale works and I've been drinking those LaCroix soda water drinks. They have the fizz without the sugar.

B/c of my acid reflux I'm beyond tired of Tums.... I literally almost gag when I put them in my mouth now but its so bad (I'm on a perscription med too but its not cutting it) I have no choice other then to suck it up and pop tums. YUCK!

Leslie, I've noticed the generic tums taste better than the regular Tums. Plus, you can take Zantac for heartburn if that helps you. Elizabeth, I hear you on the preggy pops. At first, they were amazing but I had to have one in my mouth constantly and I just couldn't. The taste was okay, but one after the other after the other didn't work.
The only thing that's worked for me is Zofran and even that isn't working like it did when I first started taking it.

My last couple pgcy's I lived on the preggy pops and got sick of them... haven't even desired to try them this time. I should though. The dr. just put me on Phenagan (sp?) too. said I can take that and continue zofran. I just hate sticking all this stuff in me but when I try to stop I start vomiting more. I was thinking it wasn't helping much but ended up being worse when I stopped taking the Rx.

It's crazy... tv commercials of food are making me gag!!

lol. Phenergan makes me sooooo sleepy! I can't take it if I'm at work, it knocks me out! I'm the same as you, I'll think I'm fine and then attempt to not take a pill and I'm gagging and heaving and ultimately throwing up.

I bought some of those very waters and I can't stomach them. At first I drank ginger ale then to avoid the hfcs I went for sierra mist but after drinking sprite it tastes awful. So I bought a few packs of the la croix stuff and he orange is just not cutting it. What flavors do you like?
I have some ginger candy that helps. I've also found that sweet tart or smartie type things take he edge off until I can get something on my bellly. I've never tried preggie pops.
