Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

how do i eat and not throw it up

answers (6)

I had this problem early on when I was pregnant. I was throwing up 10x a day. I didn't think there was anything I could do except suffer through it, but my doc said i could take Zofran. I took 1/2 a pill in the morning and 1/2 a pill  around lunch time.I did this becasue the whole dose made me a little drowsey and I had to be able to go to work. I was still nauseaous but I wasn't throwing up. Maybe once in the morning before I managed to take the pill. So if yu ahve no objections to taking medication I would ask your doc about Zofran. It helped me tremendously.
thanks i really need something my doctor said that ginger ale helped if i didnt wanna take medicine but it didnt work good
If it makes you feel better, I'm always hungry and don't have the appetite for food (if that makes sense). I want to eat but my baby doesn't want me to eat. Do tums work for you at all? 
sometimes they work others they dont
Also, I munched on crackers or dry cereal throughout the day when I started feeling a little sick. I think having a little bit of food in my tummy helped out. At work I also sucked on sour hard candy throughout the day and that helped as well. I recommend sour jolly ranchers:)
I was diagnosed with hyperememsis during my first pregnancy and got Zofran. (It was covered by my insurance.) But it can be expensive, so if you need to ask for Onedansetron, its the generic name for it and its a whole lot cheaper and works just as well in my opinion.
