Morning Sickness question... Nikkie Beee Due January 29; 2 kids; Victorville, California 3968 posts
22nd Sep

I'm on my 4th pregnancy, 3rd child. I've never had morning sickness. At most, I'll get slightly nauseated at certain smells, that's about it. Well, with this pregnancy, I thought I was in the clear when I graduated to the 2nd trimester. I was wrong :( Since about 16ish weeks I've had MS. Everything makes me sick. So, I thought, whatever, that's pregnancy for you. Well, lately it's just getting worse as I get further along. I've also had this weird aversion to water. I can't drink it. I have cups everywhere half full because I intend to drink it and it doesn't happen. Which is SOO weird for me because I LOVED water prior to this pregnancy. Sometimes, I'll go days without drinking anything and not realize it. Just last week I started contracting because of how dehydrated I was. So, I've been forcing the water down. Just now, I threw up like 2 gallons of water. I've eaten today, but no food in my vomit. Just all weird colored water.



Should I be worried? I mean, I've never had MS so I have NO idea what's normal. Is getting MS in the 2nd trimester normal? Anything I can substitute water with? I mean, I don't have insurance at the moment, so no OB to ask all my weird questions to.
TIA

If you can't hold down liquid or food in 24 hours, if say that when you need to go in for an iv.



Being hydrated makes MS ten times worse, so try not to let yourself get to that point.




Do you have Zofran?

So it's possible to drink too much? And no because the last time I went to an OB I didn't have MS. Can I buy it over the counter?

Just call your ob for zofran. They should be able to just call it in your pharmacy for you.




And it's not bad too drink to much. But, if you drink a lot in a quick amount if time, that makes the MS so much worse. Always just small little sips.

No OB, no insurance :(
And that makes sense because I've been chugging water like a jackass lol. Thanks for the tip, I would've never had known.

I was severely dehydrated for the same reason and you really need to go in for an IV....you can also try and eat popsicles and things like that because it's considered liquids....maybe even chicken broth. Good luck!

Medicaid will cover three months prior. All you have to tell the ob is some sort if proof you're going to be getting state insurance.



I would at least go to urgent care/er because being dehydrated can mess a lot of shit up. I had to stay overnight three times. They stick zofran into your IV.



How are you planning on getting your prenatal care?

It's such a long story but in a nutshell, I had medi-cal. When I moved, I changed my address with them. They sent my paperwork to my old address. Well, they cut it off. I called them and asked what happened, we sorted it out and they admitted fault So, I turned in the proper paperwork and I've been waiting since mid Aug for them to reinstate it. I've been calling them religiously and they keep telling me it's processing. Also, my DH joined the Army. He's in OSUT now, I will eventually be getting insurance from Tricare. NOW, it's the waiting game for either medi-cal to approve me until I get Tricare or Tricare kicks in and I won't have to worry about medi-cal at all. I've gone 2 months without prenatal care. I did go to the ER twice this month though to make sure me and baby were okay. So far, we're alright. But, this can't go on for much longer, KWIM?

Right. Tough spot. :/



Just be aware when it gets serious (throwing up yellow bile, keeping no water down, feeling lethargic, etc.)



Stick to bland meals as well until you feel up to drinking water. Keep a special water bottle and take a few sips every five minutes or so.



I was sick at least once a day until the day after I delivered. It felt like I had constant food poisoning or a stomach virus. I hope yours passes quicker!
