Feeling down. Need some mummies support.

My first pregnancy was pretty smooth. I had gastric pain and morning sickness too. But not as bad as this pregnancy. First tri, my morning sickness was so bad that I got admitted to hospital. It was so bad that it become gastric issue. I eat separate 6-7 meals everyday. But all the meals quantity add up to one meal quantity only. As I only eat 2 bites every meal. I'm alr 12wks preg. But my condition still doesnt improve. sweet, salty, sour. Nth helps with morning sickness. I feel so 崩溃。Gastric issue for one mth alr. My body feels weak. I can't help with hse works or my first born. Hubby say it's okay. I can't control it. Is not like i choose to make myself unwell. Morning sickness cant be control. But i still feel so guilty not being able to do more. Feels like my health is at the edge alr. Doctor say I'm malnutrition and i can't lose anymore weight. Less than 2 mths i lost 7kg. I feel so helpless. Idk how to increase my appetite... I eat, i vomit. Even drink water also vomit. Vitamin B doesnt help. Even western med for vomitting. I really dk what to do alr...

hi mummy. I totally feel you. this is also my 2nd pregnancy and it's totally diff from my 1st! the vomiting is so so much worse!! I was asked to bed rest since finding out I was preg cos gynae says there's a huge blood clot in my uterus. 2 weeks later, my whole family got C+ one after another. afterwhich I had a super bad case of vomiting and dizziness and had to be admitted due to dehydration. I would even vomit when I drink plain water!! so I have basically been resting at home the last 2mths. I feel totally useless! fast forward to now, I'm abt 13 weeks and the vomiting is getting better. I vomit 2 to 3 times a day but can have lunch and breakfast. dinners will come out. try eating super blend foods like oats and plain biscuits. tomatoes works for me. so pasta w tomatoe sauce or tomato soup. most impt stay hydrated. I can't drink plain water so i put a slice of lemon in. I hope this helps u and hang in there! it will get better mummy!

if gastric are u taking Omeprazole? it helped me trnendously after all the terrible feeling and vomiting and nausea and feeling light headed all..couldn't eat much too but after Omeprazole I managed to eat more and gotten more active doing housework all at 14wks on. now at 26wks I realize that the moment I indulge, I have to get ready for acid reflux. or indigestion. so go slow or even go Abit longer on hunger. at least my system got time to slowly absorb the food.

big hugs 🤗! I hear you! I had a really bad gastric problem as well, I've been prescribed omelozone, gavicson and femotidin. now I'm 25 weeks, still taking gavicson and omelozone once in a while. In the 1st trimester, I'd only eat clear and plain potato soup and carrots! your doctor should refer you to gastroenterology or even admit you to the hospital. hanging there!!

Mayb haven find the right kind of food? I’m 6mths still vomit n nausea on some days. Try Pasta / tomato soup/ minestone if its help. Yes light meals is fine so long you still eating. Theres organic tomato water. Or ribena (less sugar). Tcm i think pao sheng with ginger add to boil water n drink it warm. Hopefully any of these could help.

hello fellow mommy, just wanna say jiayou.. I know its tough but if nothing really helps, you just try to get more rest, don't be stressed about not being able to do more during this period and seek support from your hubs or closed ones. Hoping that things will get better for you soon. Take care!

Thank you :)

Hello mummy. Its my first pregnancy and even though my morning sickness is not as serious as yours, i want to say jiayou! Maybe you can try drinking milo if you really cannot take any solid food. Did your gynae give you any advice? Take it easy on yourself mama, take more rest when you need to.

Only say is normal. No choice.

For my wife it was quite bad in 1st Tri until we asked Dr for Diclectin. 2-4 pills a day and it was a little better. 2nd Tri she was off Diclectin. Not sure if you have tried Diclectin, else it's worth a try. Or you may need something stronger?

hello mummy, please stay strong. i had to be admitted last week due to the vomitting too. my gynae said its normal, means your body is accepting the fact tht the baby is there! its a good thing to be vomitting frequently!
