I'm currently 12w pregnant, and sick since week 6. I've already lost 8 lbs and have been trying to eat anything I can to gain but I vomit all the time. The past 2 days have been worse, I can't keep anything down at all. Water, crackers, Diclicton, prenatl vitmains. I've tried pretty much everything--Sea bands, ginger, peppermint, lemon, diclecton, gravol, carbs(chips, bread, crackers) and I'm still not getting any relief. Should I just wait it out a little bit longer? or when should I go see my docotr?
It is probably time for you to see your doctor, especially if you have become dehydrated. You may also want to call our toll free NVP helpline number at 1-800 436-8477 to discuss further the treatments you say you have tried already, but did not work.
