This nausea is KILLING me.. no matter what I do, what I eat.. it won't let up. I'm less than 3 weeks from 2nd trimester but I don't know if I can handle it.
I have some Zofran from when DD was sick about a month or so ago.. but I haven't taken it because I'm just nervous about it doing something to the baby but obviously a million other women are taking it so it can't be bad..
What do you think.. ride it out and whine like a baby or try some? How long does it last? Side effects?
TAKE YOUR ZOFRAN WOMAN!!!
It lasts for up to 8 hours. It kills the super sensitive gag reflex. Makes my nausea disappear. I usually need to take two (but doc said that's okay for a 4mg pill, they have 8 mg pills too). I was on Zofran at the height of my sickness every 8 hours on the nose, I would stagger the pills each 4 hours so they wouldn't run out at the same time. It worked miracles for me and it might for you too, give it a chance!! My baby is still growing fine ...
The baby will be fine. But I understand your concern. I don't like taking meds. The zofran really helped my nausea, but it made me horribly constipated. So be prepared to stock up on fiber and prune juice and eat/drink those religiously. Or maybe its just me. I stopped taking zofran, bc of it though.
I take it when my nausea gets exceptionally bad, and it works wonders. It really is a miracle drug... I LOVE zofran. I couldn't sleep the other night because it was so bad, but I took the zofran and it went to work so quickly. It has made me constipated too... I need some help in that department now, grrr. Dry mouth as well, but I'm sure it doesn't help that I haven't been drinking nearly enough water. I'm trying!

I'm just jealous you have 3 weeks to go and I have 6 weeks of this misery! I wish I could press a "give in" button and be done with this!
So what do you have to tell an OB to get Zofran? I want to be apart of the feel better club too!
