Morning Sickness

Recommended Posts

I have had 3 children with very intense nausea. Here are a few things that helped me:

1) The healthfood store carries ginger-root in capsules. It helps stabilize your stomach

2) At some point I read that the ancient aztecs believed chocolate was the "pregnancy herb." I used to eat chocolate moussse every morning to alleviate the symptom. Since it is made with eggs...it was a very high protein bonus to it. Besides, if this doesn't help, it was fun anyway.

3) Reflexology doesn't involve eating but can do a really great job on stabilizing during pregnancy. Usually each treatment makes eating much easier on average of 2-7 days.

I hope you feel better soon. The one thing you know is that pregnancy never lasts forever.

Ruth.

I take Zofran when I'm nauseated and it works like a charm. I'm pretty sure it's gluten free because I have never reacted and it's always HELPED when I was glutened accidentally by some other food. I'm almost 100% sure it's gluten free.

That's weird. I took Zofran during my pg just a few months ago. My pharmacist said it was gluten-free! The only other thing that helped was to take 1/2 unisom and 1/2 B-12 everyday.

Hello! I am currenlty in my 11th week of pregnancy and have been having very bad morning sickness that gets progressively worse as the day goes on. I saw my obgyn yesterday and he prescribed Zofran. Unfortunately, when I called Glaxo SmithKline, they informed me that Zofran is not gluten free. Does anyone have any other suggestions for nausea/vomiting? I am also traveling this weekend and get motion sickness as well. Not looking forward to it. I know constant snacking helps but does not do the trick for me. Any help is much appreciated!!!!

I don't know about the EnerG saltines, but there IS a gluten-free version (sorry, can't remember who makes it but it looks very similar to Corn Chex)of Corn Chex cereal.

I lived on Corn Chex (even though it had barley malt) while I was pregnant becasue it was the only thing besides strawberries that I could keep down (didn't know I had a problem with gluten then).

Try Health Valley Rice or Corn Crunch-Ems cereal. They look just like Chex cereals, are totally gluten free, and available at whole Foods Markets.

I used Phenergan. I was given a prescription of oral phenergan and used that when I could keep it down. You may need the Phenergan shot. Talk to your doctor to see if this is right for you.

Also, Ener-G makes saltine like crackers that are great to eat before you get up in the morning. Makes life easier to have something in your tummy.

I used to take a lot of Phenergan before I figured out that I was so yucky in the tum from my crohn's disease (yeah, add that to celiac and you can have fun for life). When I told the doc that it didn't help me to take nausea pills when I was nauseated because they just came back up, he gave me some nausea pills (I think they were still Phenergan) that disolved on the tongue. Half of one of those (you can break them in the bubble package with your thumbnail--they're very soft) and you feel much better but don't sleep all day.

    This is good advice. Some restaurants offer gluten-free menus or mark items with “GF” on their regular menu, and I try to eat at such places. I still talk to the manager when I order to be sure.
