Thinking about meds

I am having some morning sickness well all day and I am taking B6 anf pepcid and tonight before bed unisom but I feel it hasn't done much I feel like I'm taking a bunch of stuff when maybe I should just call the ob for the zofran I hate taking amything when pregnant but I also have acid reflux and with all the morning sickness it is making my stomach raw. What are your toughts on zofran?

I pretty much survived on Zofran for each of my pregnancies (this is my 4th pregnancy, 3rd baby) and my kids turned out fine. I've been thinking of calling to get some but decided I'll hold out a few more days if I can. I tend to throw up a lot when I'm pregnant (as in 3-5 times per day) but the Zofran has helped me tremendously. I'd still throw up 1-2 times, but atleast I could hold more nutrients in which is obviously so important. Plus when you have other kids to take care of, a job, whatever, you need to be able to function. I'd get some for when you're really feeling badly. Soon enough you won't need it anymore.

I've been really nauseous all day for about the past 5 days. Thankfully I haven't thrown up yet, but I'm pretty miserable all day and the thought of eating makes me want to puke.

I would love some zofran if it stopped the nausea but I doubt my doctor would give since I haven't been throwing up. I am starting to feel pretty miserable with the nausea. Food doesn't sound appealing at all and makes
Me feel like throwing up.
Has the unisom worked for others ?? I say if your doctors gives it to you - take it !!!!
