I am 8 weeks pregnant with my third and I am soooo sick. It started at 7 weeks just like with my last two and those lasted until 15 weeks. This time it is so much worse. For the last two weeks I have thrown up at least 4 times a day. All of the medications I have looked up say unknown if they are gluten-free or not. Has anyone taken any of these medications and found them to be gluten-free? I can hardly funtion right now and I cant imagine 6 more weeks of this!

Thanks

Stephanie

Cola syrup by Apothecary Products relieves nausea really well for me. I buy mine at the local supermarket. You can probably get it on their website www.apothecaryproducts.com

Also Liddell makes a homeopathic spray called Stomach Distress that you spray under the tongue. This has also been something I keep on hand

Nausea is my major symptom whenever I am glutened

*warning* since you are pregnant check with a doctor before using products

talk to your doctor and they should give you something. I know I took two different types because I was so sick both of the the dr. gave me. The phamacy should also let you know if the are gluten-free. I hope you feel better and congrats on your baby!

B-complex will often help morning sickness. Never let your stomach get totally empty or it will be hard to get it back under control. The old soda crackers by the bedside doesn't work for us, but some other gluten-free snack might. Just be sure you eat it while still laying down. The good news is that if you are like most of us, you will wake up one morning during week 13 and suddenly realize that you aren't nauseated anymore. Then you can enjoy this pregnancy.

If your doctor says you can have phenergan, Watson makes a gluten-free generic.

I personally can't stand nausea and I say take drugs!

Zofran and Phenegran are gluten-free and are wonderful anti-nausea drugs. Get your doc to prescribe you one of those-they are both prescription. Zofran is really expensive but Phenegran is not.

I also heard Compazine works.

If you don't want to take drugs, try

Hi there! Sorry you are so sick! I was like this with my last child and it was pure hell. Especially if you have other kiddies to care for. Just a warning about Phenergan, it will knock you on your butt and if you have other small kids I would probably opt for Zofran even though it is more expensive. I took Phenergan, but only when my husband was home because I kept falling asleep with a 2 year old in the house. You will probably have to phone the maker of both meds to find out if they are gluten-free. If you want to go the nautal route, try ginger pills if your OB says its ok. They helped me a bit. I hope you feel better soon!

Zofran and Phenegran are the meds. I took I just couldn't remember the name.

Phenegran really didn't work for me just for a couple of days and then I was sick. It did make me really sleepy so I had to time it out when I knew that I had to drive to work. Zofran worked much better and didn't make me tired at all. I was still sick but not as bad as I would have been if I didn't have any meds. I hope you feel better soon.

Kaysol- I have celiac disease, and I am 8 weeks pregnant! I have extreme nausea all day long. I have been prescribed Zofran. I am having such a hard time because I am gluten-free. I just got diagnosed six months ago. I cannot find things I want to eat. It is especially hard because cooking makes me so nauseated. When is your baby due. I am due Feb 11. Good luck!

Hi everyone, thanks for all the help. I went ot my first appt today and my Dr. suggested phenegren or Zofran also. I am glad to hear they are gluten-free, I couldnt fine that information. I will be much happier if I am not throwing up! I have a 5 and a 2 year old so feeling like I have the flu for 3 straight weeks is not fun at all!

natmilly, I am due on February 9th, sounds like we are right at the same place. Good luck to you too! and yes, nothing tastes or sounds good right now to me either. even the thought of food makes me gag. I know this will pass and I will eating like crazy again soon enough but sheesh!

    • Possible celiac? Frustrated and upset
      Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum but I think I may have coeliac disease, the doctors say it could be anyway or possibly h pylori  Constant pain above my navel, nausea, anaemia, joint pain, bloating, migraines, depression, mood changes, feeling "not all there" and feeling so tired I could sleep all day! I just don't want to get out of bed let alone the house  these are just a few symptoms I have to cope with every single day! It's so frustrating! I just want to feel normal!!! I also have what feels like a lump in my throat at times and excess mucus all the time. Ive been suffering from this for years now, not this bad of course. And I've got the common answers from the doctors "it's IBS, excess stomach acid" you name it..  Recently I went to the doctors and persisted, pretty much begged for further tests as I couldn't deal with it much longer! I'm waiting on blood results and have a scan soon. Possibly an endoscopy depending on my blood test results.  Im just wondering if any of you have the symptoms I do? Thank you in advance

      I never worry about deodorant.  The only things you really need to worry about are things that might get in your mouth.  I get shampoo in my mouth so I read the ingredients.  They will say if they have wheat germ oil in them.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/will-my-skin-breakout-if-i-use-topical-products-like-shampooslotions-that-have-gluten-in-them   "Gluten must be ingested to be cause for concern for someone with celiac disease. We still recommend those with celiac disease avoid contact with gluten, especially with products that have the potential to be ingested. Small amounts of gluten can be found in many cosmetics, lotions and shampoos. Avoid product ingredients that literally say “wheat,” “rye,” “malt” or “barley.”  "
    • Secret Deodorant
      Most toiletry products are fine even if they have wheat/gluten in them.  The main issue is not to ingest them!  Many folks with celiac disease are careful with shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, lipstick, lip gloss, hair products,  and sunscreen because they could be accidentally swallowed (if you chew on your nails, etc.).   I have used Crystal Deodorant for 20 years now.  It can last for years!  Seriously!  It is pretty effective but not as effective for a teenager.   My entire family uses it, but my teen uses regular antiperspirant too.  You can find it at Whole Foods, Sprouts, healthfood stores, and even a "roll" on version at CVS.  Of course, Amazon carries it too and the price is comparable to the stores.   I found some mini travel versions at Marshalls (but that is hit or miss).  I like the solid crystal option the best.  I really like Gabriel Lipstick found at Sprouts.  I buy it on sale.  It is certified gluten-free, so I never have to worry!  I hear that Red Apple (sold online) is very good too and is certified.   I hope this helps!  
    • Anyone Else Feel A "lump" In Their Stomach?
      Hi chinup,  I know it's been a while, but I was wondering if what was the diagnosis.. Please let us know.  Thank you! 
    • Tests done, waiting for CT Scan and Biopsy appointments
      Hello, I have been reading a lot of posts while waiting for some of my test results to come back.  So thankful for the information I have found so far! I have completed my blood tests and other lab work.  Complete allergy tests came back positive for all in the bread/cereal profile.   One of the gene tests for Celiac came back positive and one other test came back high, even though I was not eating Gluten at the time of my lab work.  Back eating a small amount of gluten daily and have CT Scan and biopsy appointments scheduled for the near future.   I was wondering if anyone else is where I am as far as the testing.  I have had quite a few symptoms return quickly after going back to eating gluten.  The next day I had a migraine headache for the entire day, went to sleep and woke up with another headache that wasn't quite as bad.  Prior to my appointment,  I was only gluten free for 2 months and was really starting to feel great.  Three days into eating gluten stomach cramps returned.  Also on a Low FODMAP diet.  Unfortunately had to go back to eating it for the biopsy test.   Please reply if you are in the same spot as me as far as testing for Celiac.  Thanks, Sheila
