I just thought I'd introduce myself.
I'm a little over 8 weeks pregnant with my first child. I've had pretty bad nausea since the very beginning. I was literally sick within days of conception. Since then, it's just been ratcheting up.
On Saturday, things came to a head when I couldn't keep anything down - no fluids, not even water. I threw up around 6 or 7 times total. I finally went to the ER that night and was given two liters of IV fluids and some zofran.
I received a presciption for zofran (was filled with generic yesterday). I felt okay most of yesterday (it seemed to last nearly 24 hours), but by the evening, I was feeling hideous again and took a zofran. Of course, 10-15 minutes later, I threw up. But I think I may have absorbed some of it because I felt a little better last night.
This morning I woke up feeling horrible again and I took another zofran (I'm allowed to take them every 8 hours) and I guess I'm feeling a little better, but I haven't eaten today. Over the last 48 hours, I've basically had 2 Sprites, some watered down apple juice, a dry piece of toast, one banana, some sport's drink, one small popsicle and some broth. That's it.
I'm starting to worry about my nutrition. I already had an appointment scheduled with my OB for tomorrow, but I'm terrified that I'm going to be like this my whole pregnancy. The zofran helps, I guess, but my stomach still feels weird when I'm on it and it makes me dizzy, drowsy and gives me a headache.
I'm praying this will end after the first trimester, but I'm terrified it won't. :( This is so depressing and debilitating. I never thought my pregnancy would be like this.
