    Hey Mommy..

    I had bad morning sickness (whole day) until i was 5.5mths towards 6mths..I can understand how u are feeling now!I have never managed to hold my food more than 20mins..Everything goes in comes out,even water!It even happened when i was sleeping.It was a tortured.
    If your situation is as bad as mine..,i suggest that you let your gynae know and maybe he can prescript some medication for you which i did!
    It didn't help much but well at least i can hold my food a little longer!And feel sleepy all the time and just sleep sleep sleep...
    What i did then was rest as much as i can and suckle some flavored ice cubes.
    I made sour plum ice cubes then suckle those cubes whenever i felt bad!
    YOu may wanna try other flavour if you like, like orange,lime or even ribena?Just dun take too much sugar.
    I did many readings during my pregnancy and sometimes the reading can be so intense that i can forget to puke!hahha..sounds funny huh??
    Don't be depressed!Go out for a walk!or talk to someone about your situation!
    Please take care....:D

    try not to eat your meal at one go. If u can separate your meals. 3 meals into 6 meals in smaller portion.
    Also dont eat too oily. Another thing tat can help is, u can buy fruits such as guava and snack on it. Guava is abit sour and good in fibre. This snack really helps me throughout my morning sickness.

    Hi Princess Diamond,

    can i ask how u made your sour plum ice cubes? am also 14 weeks and still suffering from MS tho mine is not so bad as I do not vomit as much..only keep feeling nauseous the whole day with the mouth having this weird taste..

    My Miracle,
    having several small meals does help..i also realize i puke more whenever i have anything oily..hope u get better soon.

    Hello Preciousthots,

    I put 1 pc of seedlees sour plum into each ice cubes with hot water(just to bring the flavour out) before placing it into the freezer to freeze it.
    And also,i bought a rather small cubes from Daiso cos normal ice cubes is a little big for me and difficult to put the whole pc into mouth to suckle!
    Hope all mommies is getting much needed rest and get well soon.....Take care.

    take dry food in the morning. Dry food like biscults do not vomit out easily they be retain in the stomach better. Only take liquid diet 1hr after dry food.

    You can try ginger tea too.

    I had morning sickness the whole day. My job requres me to travel but each time I alight the cab, i will vomit. It was horrible

    i had very bad ms too when i was pregnant with my #1. Now im 5 weeks preg with my #2. im already starting to feel slight nausea since two days ago. so i tried to be active. i skipped for 10 minutes everytime i feel nauseas. immediately i felt better. maybe yew can try to be active as well? get fresh air and walk outside for abit?

    during my 1st pregnancy, i lay down all day hoping the nauseasness will go away. felt really shitty during my 1st preg. now im starting to think maybe my lack of movement then made me feel even sicker.

    I had all day sickness everyday from 5 weeks to 16 weeks.It was horrible,I vomitted anything from food to stomach juices to bile to blood.It could get as bad as 12 times of vomitting a day
    [​IMG] Nothing worked for me,not seabands,not ginger tablets,not ginger tea,not medicine prescribed by doc.Eating plums only helps me for 10 mins,after that,it makes it worse as what comes out later will be acidic stomach juices.Could not & did not feel like eating during the daytime,the only things i could eat for lunch are non acidic fruits,and my first proper food/meal will be a very small portion of rice + vege +fish/meat at dinner.Milk for supper.
    subsequently luckily from week 16 to week 28,the vomitting gradually reduced to 3 times a day ,then 3 times a week then totally gone.
    I'm now in week 32 and morning sickness has seemed to crawl back into my life but it isn't as bad as last time.Vomitted twice yesterday,and only feel the nausea but no vomitting occasionally today.

    One thing that I found that could provide the most relief for me previously was rubbing some medicated oil above my lips and temples.Too bad i only discovered this method when my nausea was almost ending,maybe you could try it too and see if it works for you.

    It isn't easy to go through all these,I know but do still take care!

    Hahaha... think I have the longest morning sickness of all! It happened to 2 of my pregnancies. Started somewhere my 10weeks till I delivered! Basically will vomit after food. Craved for chilli mee suah and vomitted all out, so gross and uncomfortable. Tongue got the "metal" taste. After delivery, I will feel nausea on and off and sometimes in the morning, I will puke the gastric juice. Yucky, bitter!

    Basically I eat anything during pregnancy, I drink Ice milk tea everyday. Hahaha...

    Oh ya, recently I read that gochi juice can ease morning sickness.

    but because i constantly eating every 2 hours, i never have ms anymore. d whole ms just gone.
    i only eat like 1 slice of bread, fruit, or just titbits. but still eat 3 times proper meal everyday

    Hi All,
    my morning sickness got so bad that till I have to go on drips and even admitted into hospital. On hospital leave for 1 mth, next week going back to work also don know how as it not getting better. I had to rely on the medication to stop the vomit. But the medication is too EX to be taken long run - $15 per pill. More EX than a meal. Haiz.

    Jus a sharing - when I was pregnant w my first baby, I was hospitalisd twice due to severe dehydration. Only recovered around the 17th week. Now I am pregnant w my second. Initially hopeful that symptoms would be different ie no more ms, who knows? Sigh. Now 12th week. Been feeling depressed. Stuck at home. Keep vommiting now and then. I do visit this website and facebook, other than some light reading. I realise reading about other mothers' joy esp own friends (people you know) at the arrival of their newborns and seeing photos of their happy faces do cheer and inspire me on. Hope it can do the same for you. [​IMG]

    hi mommy,

    i think ginger tea will subside the morning sickness for awhile... for my first pregnancy i had sweets to curb the vomit...but i think different methods work for different ppl...so u can tryout..take care!!

    gilbert New Member

    where can i buy d ginger tea? those 'super' brand teabags? wat abt ginger slice? where to find?

    can my wife eat mentos?

    is it true that my wife cant take citrius fruits?
     
  23. heavenlymade

    heavenlymade Member

    hi gilbert
    your wife can take any fruit as long as not over consumption. I dont see any harm eating mentols too also unless over consume. Best if u not sure, dont eat, until u check with gynae.

    for ginger tea, i like to make them myself. Just pound a piece of ginger n put in water to boil, and add those brown sugar for taste. There is one type of brown sugar which is on sale in NTUC, which is pretty good for health. u can get that if u want. I didnt try any instant product, quite worried about preservatives.

    btw
    your wife can munch on some whole wheat biscuit if she no appetite.

    blueblue Member

    I took apple mentos (sweet and sour) and it helps in reducing my MS. Dry biscuits like the soda biscuits really helps too.

    There was once I finished a whole pkt of briyani rice and I vomitted just because I choke on water. Yucks! Thanks goodness these days are over!

    sutcliffe New Member

    Hi mommies,

    I too had bad morning sickness for both of my pregnancies. Ended up in hospital for severe dehydration. My doc says to avoid spicy and oily food and also dairy products. Eating dry biscuits like Carrs Tablewater every few hours helps a little. But what I found best was Eucalyptus oil. I carried a small bottle of the oil around and sniffed it whenever I feel sick.

    Hang in there.

    I'm 16wks pregnant and my MS is very bad, I vomit alot and has no appetite, till now, I have not put on weight. The only thing that helps is home cooked food, I guess its becos home cooked food has no msg. I also likes birdnest, so strange.

    This is my 2nd pregnancy and i am in my 7wks now. Since in my 5th wk, my stomach is always bloated with wind. This makes me lose appetite, burp a lot a lot and i need to munch on sour stuff to keep the nauseous feeling away.

    And make me feel so moody. Anyone has sugg on how to safely get rid of excess wind?

    I was telling my hubby now is real pregnancy for me. My 1st pregnancy was very good...I dun hv any of my current symptoms now. I eat and work and shop as normal.

    Hi, i am on my 8.5 weeks pregnancy. I have bloated stomach with wind too. My MS has slightly stop when i am out of home. My feeling is strengthless as I dont eat much at home and alway feeling pain on stomach.

    When i am outside, I eat good and chosen food and I am better but the bloated stomach is there and never go down. Strengthless still. Every thing has to go slow as I cant catch my breath at time.

    Hi all,

    I have morning sickness since i'm pregnant.. now i'm ard 6th week still facing it. I always feel breathless and heartbeat seems to beat faster than normal, but i went to visit a doctor (not gynae) but he says tat mayb i'm too tired. Even if i had slept enough but still feel breathless..
    I keep on vomiting but nothin comes, and i also increases my appetite during my pregnancy. I have MS nowadays and seems like getting worse, asking alot frm my hubby and bcme very demanding in certain things.. Does those instant ginger tea helps frm vomitin out? I sometime feel sudden menstrual cramps and vaginal pain, stomach bloated.. I keep on eating alot but dunno tat my tummy is accumulated with fats or is my baby growing.. haix.. I'm so fan2 loh... I really hate all the symptoms..

    hi all,
    for my first pregnancy my MS was very bad. couldnt even keep water in. also had insomnia and almost fell into depression coz work was stressing me out and i felt that i couldnt meet the demands. i had take no pay leave just to go on a holiday n get away from it all. out of the 9 months of pregnancy, i was on mc for about 3 months here n there. felt bad n guilty coz my colleagues had to take up the slack for me. now having 2nd one in first tri, but i think i'll go thru the same thing again. getting worried now.

    btw, i found that taking chinese tea helped with MS alot. i took some after a light meal and found that i threw up less although still feel nauseous.

    choosing foods that dont taste bad after throwing up also helps. meat, bread and rice has the worst aftertaste after throwin up. orange peel is good coz it masks the aftertaste.

    cold packet milo is also good for filling up tummy to reduce nausea.

    I too have very bad morning sickness. Felt like I cannot function at all. On MC for 3 months. Was admitted in hospital. Felt depressed. Bouts of gastric and indigestion. Nothing helps.

    It didn't go away after my 1st trimester. Now 23 weeks pregnant. Still having MS but getting better. Not puking so much. Trying to get back to work soon. Hang in there!

    Hi All

    i have very bad ms during my 1st trimester. I hate smell of food and throw out every 2-3 hrs. And more frequent in the night. When i start to go into my 2nd trimester, i feel much better.

    But now i dont really like to eat rice. Cos i think vomit too much. Mood swing. Dislike water too. But i simply love watermelon, grass jelly, and fruits. This preg is different from the 1st preg. I hate sunshine. SO i only go out during rainy days. [​IMG] I am on like US timing. I dont sleep at nite. But sleep during the day. SOmetimes also feel really frustrated. But what to do.

    Ryan : It is normal i guess. Going thru period. Cross ur fingers and hope that she will be ok during the 2nd trimester. Dont say anything to hurt her as she is emotional very sensitive. Hormones changes. Maybe her sex drives increase as well. Try to accomodate her. COs my hb did say something to hurt me during tis preg e.g "I never see a preg woman like u" It really hurts! Make me feel like divorcing him. But now what can I do! Well, ......... Just be patient with ur wife. SHe will just be fine! Jia You!

    Hi all,

    Since the last time I posted this new thread till now, it's been a few months already. My baby was 14 weeks when I last posted. Now my baby is 26 weeks. I felt better when my baby was between 16 to 20 weeks. I no longer have MS but am tired and feel breathless easily. But whatever it is what my gynae said is right. With MS, you are sure your baby is doing great. All mothers are 'Wei Tah' and all of us here are suffering for a good cause.

    Hi All

    I'm feeling bad n hope that it k stop soon rather than the MS stretching to more mths [​IMG]

    So "what my gynae said is right. With MS, you are sure your baby is doing great. All mothers are 'Wei Tah' and all of us here are suffering for a good cause." - is e only comfort thing that keeps me going..

    HB sees me every night in this manner also feels helpless. Will check with my gynae as hasn't heard her making this statement.

    It's you who is my companion here - a sharing session [​IMG] Thx.

    it seems so common to get MS...indeed, e common saying is MS is quite a safe assurance of fetus progressing well as body is undergoing hormones changes..but i hope it wun drag far too long.. <x>

    Hi all,

    I do not have morning sickness but my stomach bloated quite badly at the initial stage. At this time, the stomach starts to slow down and the veins start to expand, etc. On the other hand, the taste feel bland too. One will feel cold compare to normal days, it's like having a cold or flu so do put on extra clothing.

    I think how I overcome my bloatedness will also help all of you.

    1. do ensure meal serving is really much smaller than usual meal we take b4 pregnancy eg. 1/2. If it still make you feel uncomfortable, redurce further.

    2. do chew slowly on every bit of food as this will help in digestion.

    3. bring along biscuits with you in a box(eg. lock &amp; lock) whenever u feel slight hunger coming do eat.

    4. do not take oily stuff eg. fried bananas, fried chicken, french fries, etc. Eat a little of such stuff should be fine.

    5. do not take cold stuff, or cold fruits/ vegetables(take a little should be fine) as this will help you and your baby's health.

    6. must have enough sleep -> 8hrs.

    7. MUST relax your body especially when you feel uncomfortable, take deep breath in and out slowly. This is very important to try not to cling on to puking feeling.

    8. during such time, ususally don't feel like drinking water but do take water as it's important for the body to get hydration.

    Observe the body and fine-tune the habits if you can.

    Hi

    My 2 pregnancy I had different morning sickness.

    First pregnancy, vomitted for 6mths. Mostly can eat cheese burgers and noodles only. No oily food, rice and chilli for me. Practically throw out at every meals like a routine.

    Second pregnancy, vomitted for 3mths. Like to eat fillet-o-fish burgers and noodles only. No oily food and chilli as well. Also throw up at almost every meals.

    I tried taking small meals and also eat wheat crackers to stop my vomitting before meals. Don't see much cure for my MS. Sometimes go to cafeteria, in order to avoid those cooking smell that will make me feel like vomitting, I need a sweet in my mouth before I buy my food. Or else, I doubt I can make my way there.

    i had my sickness all e way to 3rd mth into 4th mth and i even threw up my food at 5 mths coz it was too oily. muz noe wat foods cause u to be sick and which foods make u better. better to avoid oily and too spicy food. wil spoil ur appetite.. if u still throw up badly and cannot keep e food down can try having flavoured drinks or 100plus.. helps to hydrate and gives u appetite..
