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!

    • I am worried about the cost but I think having that test done would help me rule things out. Either way I need to see a G.I my issues are getting out of control.
    • Thank you for all the information. I am sorry for the late reply to everyone. I have been feeling worse and worse lately. Got the blood test results, it came back negative. Seeing a G.I specialist in three months (too long for me :/) I've been keeping a food diary and realize I feel worse after eating gluten. After the G.I I want to start the diet. I'm going to call him and see if I can get seen sooner. The bloodwork said theres no signs of inflammation and they don't suspect it to be autoimmune but they want me to do the diet anyway. I wish I had answers because my vision is getting worse, cramping, nerve pain and trips to the bathroom are amplifying. Meh. Also I have a vitamin d deficiency so I am taking d3 2000iu with vitamin b12. Thanks for the help! 
    • I'm sorry you are dealing with this. My son deals with food intolerances that are not identified by any biomarker as well. I hear the same response from doctors in that, "if the food makes him feel bad then it's probably best to avoid the food." (Thanks for your insight doc!) His symptoms are not dermatological though. His symptoms are mostly neurological and psychiatric with some bloating and mild digestive issues. He loses his mind quite literally if he digests gluten. Also develops what is known as a stereotypy, involuntary movement of hands. He is otherwise a normal child. We are unable to obtain any kind of diagnosis though.  I know you're avoiding a lot of foods right now, but don't get discouraged. It's just a way of life and you're doing the right thing. Right now we are avoiding foods such as soy, all types of grain, chocolate, dairy and nightshades. I have limited his iodine intake as well. I have personally found that gluten, iodine and soy cause intensely itchy blisters and joint pain for me. Perhaps have you tried cutting back on iodine intake?
    • It is entirely possible to get a safe meal at an airport.  I always go to the high end places and that makes a difference.  I have no idea what they have at LAX but Legal Seafoods, if they have one there, is ALWAYS safe because they follow strict protocol for Celiac dining. I ate at the Boston one on my Colorado trip in October and it was excellent and I never had a problem.  The menu is limited for gluten-free at an airport but who cares......all I wanted was a safe meal and that is what I got. The baked fish was delicious.  They even had gluten-free cracker crumbs for the topping but that is Legal's...they do good work for the Celiac community.  The manager oversees the meal prep for food allergy folks. In Denver, there was a Wolfgang Puck's for breakfast. They had prepackaged fruit salads which were very good.  I took a leap of faith and asked the server if they could make me a gluten-free omelette, in a separate clean pan and they were very accommodating.  They had an open kitchen so I could watch them make it.  I could not order the other stuff that went with it but the omelette was delicious and I never had a problem. It can be done but you have to be careful. There was a place that advertised gluten-free sandwiches in Denver.  You could see the guy making the sandwiches. I ran from that place because there was bread all over the place and no way could they make that space safe for a Celiac.  A lot of the places had open kitchens so you can watch what they do and that makes a big difference.  Check out the restaurant listings on-line as they are listed. Have a great trip!
    • You are a nice person, Ennis, to do this for Thanksgiving!  If I were in Texas, I would feel safe eating your food and it sounds delicious! To have an allergy safe meal served in a church is a wonderful thing.
