Hi I am about 12wks pregnant and I am very sick I have a 15 month old, I went threw the same thing last time. For the fisrt time my doctor has told me that I have a sickness called (hyperemesis Gravidarum ) I was priscribed diclectin but it does not work. Is there any other medication I could take? P.S Sometimes I smoke pot and it helps a bit but I don't want to be dependent on a street drug. Do you have any advise on the smoking of pot while pregnant? I would like to point out it has been the best remedy so far it helps to give me an apettite.
It is unfortunate that Diclectin did not work for you, however you may not have been taking a higher enough dose. We have published a study of women taking 8 tablets per day with no adverse effects on the baby.
