my m/s seems to be getting worse and im 12 weeks today. i also started getting headaches on thursday but the weather has changed to annoyingly hot here and i wonder if it's related bc i have major sinus issues. but i went from being a functional immobilized pregnant person to just an immobilized pregnant person. did something maybe happen to one of the babies and that is what is triggering this sudden extra dose of m/s? my appointment isnt until oct 28 but i might call monday and go in. my mom is all mad at the doctors because she thinks that there are things that they arent doing for me but i keep telling her that there isnt anything more they can do...the extent is zofran and it doesnt work for me....

You could always try Phenergan, but it made me sleepy all the time. Zofran helped me a little, but in the end you just have to ride it out. Stuff with sugar also helped ease the nausea, like sugared tea. It will get better!!!! I was able to stop taking my Zofran at 22 weeks. I saw that you had posted that you were only able to get 20-30 tables of Zofran for 30 days and you were taking it 2-3 times day. I had the same thing happen and I called my pharmacy line on my insurance card and they over road it. You might want to try that. I know first hand how you are feeling and it is horrible, but I promise you it will get better. Hang in there.

I started feeling slightly better around 14 weeks and by 16 weeks it was gone! I had terrible headaches too. I bet you start feeling better over the next month. I really doubt the MS would be a sign that something is wrong. Ihere were a few days I wondered if I had some type of other ailment besides just MS because I felt so terrible. ( I didn't....LOL)

Hang in there!

thanks for the responses...this morning i woke up to dry-heaving and this is the first time ive actually "vomited". i just read in a couple different places online that if you start experiencing symptoms that are WORSE after 12 weeks then there may be "something else going on". the headaches especially bc i didnt have them before although it could be my sinuses/change in weather, etc. but the dry-heaving is new. maybe im just deficient in a vitamin, like iron or something since i cant really eat? idk, trust me i really dont want to go to the doctor and get blood drawn and all that crap. and i just feel bad bc i literally cant do anything. my husband comes home from his very stressful job, feeds our son, gives him his bath, cleans up around the house bc i cant do anything. i dont know if it's normal to not be able to do this much....even my friends that puked several times a day still felt relief in their stomachs and still could eat on occassion.
thanks for the positive responses though : )

It seems like you've tried the wrist bands, medications, foods/water etc. that were suggested here Perhaps the doctor can suggest something else. When pg with twins during the first trimester I also suffered severe food aversions and nausea. I basically ate cool ranch doritos, green grapes and clementines for 8 weeks. And one day it really did just go away. For protein I would make a peanut butter sandwich with the pepperidge farm white bread (it was the only kind I could look at) and I would break it into small pieces and swallow it whole with some water. It would take me 2 hrs to finish the sandwich but it seemed to help. And starting every "meal" with doritos . . . that helped as well. But definitely call the doctor. A few more rounds of bloodwork in the scheme of things isn't detrimental. Best of luck for a healthy pregnancy.

I haven't chimed in on your previous posts because I didn't have any advice, but I'm sorry you feel so crappy. I get headaches whenever I'm dehydrated so maybe that's it? I have heard of extreme m/s cases where women actually need IV fluids. In any case if it were me I'd call, if only to put my mind at ease that there's nothing wrong.

i thought i was on thursday bc i cant really drink water (it upsets my stomach) but i bit the bullet and started drinking a lot more since then...i can keep it down but its uncomfortable. i thought maybe that was the problem though. i dont think so now though bc ive been really keeping track of it. i just dont know what to do anymore it's really putting a strain on my relationship with my husband and a strain on my relationship with myself bc i have such low self-esteem from this (bc i cant do anything that i used to do). and i dont suffer from self-esteem issues. i go 3 days without showering because it's too much effort. i feel like an invalid.
i will call the doctor tomorrow as they arent open on the weekends. but the biggest problem is the nausea which i know they cant do anything for. i dont have the hypermesis gravideum (or however the hell you spell it) - that's when you need to be hospitalized for an IV bc the vomiting is uncontrollable and you cant keep anything down. so i feel like the OB will just give me some sympathetic eyes and just be like "whatever, it will pass". i dont think OBs take m/s seriously at all.

Just curious, I did acu during my last pregnancy and she always asked if I was having much m/s b/c there are points them can hit to help with that I guess. Can't tell ya if it helps or not.

I wouldn't take more symptoms as a sign of anything bad...hopefully things will start settling down soon, only a couple more weeks til your well into the 2nd tri. Hang in there....so sorry you're feeling so crummy.

my m/s seems to be getting worse and im 12 weeks today. i also started getting headaches on thursday but the weather has changed to annoyingly hot here and i wonder if it's related bc i have major sinus issues. but i went from being a functional immobilized pregnant person to just an immobilized pregnant person. did something maybe happen to one of the babies and that is what is triggering this sudden extra dose of m/s? my appointment isnt until oct 28 but i might call monday and go in. my mom is all mad at the doctors because she thinks that there are things that they arent doing for me but i keep telling her that there isnt anything more they can do...the extent is zofran and it doesnt work for me....
I only had mild nausea in the first trimester, so no direct experience. But, I have a friend who had serious m/s for her entire first pregnancy and most of the second one. I recollect her telling me with her first pregnancy that the Zofran only worked for her if she took it before she even got out of bed in the morning. If she waited until she got up and started moving, then it wouldn't touch the m/s.

Zofran didn't work at all during her second pregnancy and she was in bed all day with a toddler. My acu offered to treat her for free to test out recent training in nausea. It worked, though I don't know if it was just timing, the acu's work, or both, as she was almost through her second trimester by the time she tried it. I would definitely call the doctor tomorrow and I hope you find relief soon.
