    ok 21 weeks pregnant and still being sick 24hrs a day :wall: now im used to that coz i was the same with my other 2 but this past week everything i have eaten is coming back out either one end or the other :cry: i end up feeling sick constantly have pains in my stomach where im so hungry n its just generally makin me feel really down. even when i try and eat i can barely eat anything :?
    has anyone else had the same thing im just wondering if its normal n if i should bother going to see my gp or not (he is a nightmare to get an appointment with as it is so dont want to get one and go if its nothing)

    Hi

    Sorry to hear about your sickness I feel for you I really do, mine stopped at about 18 weeks. Are you keeping any fluids down? If not you will start to become de-hydrated which is bad for the baby and you! If your doctor is a pain, go start to A&E... this is what I did and they told me I had hyperemesis and admitted me straight away, put me on a drip and gave me an injection to stop the sickness.

    I was in for 5 days but all though the sickness didnt stop after it carmed down a hell of a lot.....

    Have a look at this website www.bloomingawful.com this has some info on hyperemesis.

    Hope you feel better soon sweety xxxxx :)

    I think your GP should be able to give you one before then - have you told the receptionist you are pregnant?

    I was exactly the sam until about 22wks. My GP signed me off work for two weeks and prescribed me (sorry forgotten the name!) some sort of pastells that I put under my top lip and let it melt - they were disgusting as they took a couple of hours to melt - but they helped so much!

    I would try your GP again - if not, do as Keeley said go to A&E or even try the NHS 24 people - if they send you to the doctor they must see you within 24hrs!

    Hope you feel better soon. I know how you feel!!

    with both my son and my daughter i was still sick up until an hour after i had given birth :lol: infact with my daughter i was left sat on the bed for an hour after i had her both of us covered in sick couldnt reach the call button coz i had her 10mins before they were due to handover and they forgot i was there :evil:

    my doctors is now shut until 5pm tonite they are awful they know that i am pregnant aswell there is only one doctor there n they only have a certain amount of appointments they can accept that day n if they are full its tough basically :roll:

    if the nhs send me to the doctor i may aswell just go to a&e coz its right next to it at least i no if i go to a&e i will get more sense :lol:

    have rang my midwife but she is out of the office so got to wait for her to come back before she gets the message i really need to move :lol:

    awww. Well I hope your mid wife isn't too long!

    I know how awful it is tho - I was in tears as I was just so tired of being sick.

    Where do you live? I thought my little village was bad - but I've got more than one doctor! :wink:

    Don't knowif it's work but the only thing I could keep down was just plain boilt water. It also soothed my tummy pains as it got sore sometimes with wretching (sp?!?!)

    arh bless you! I really do feel for you..... have you tried drinking flat lemonade, just keep stiring it till the fizz has gone, cos the sugar in it really helped with my stomach pains!... if you are being sick more than every 30-40 mins def go A&E.

    hope it all works out for you xxxxxxxxxx

    :lol: @ wobbles u rant away woman u got every right to LOL

    just got back from a&e OH had to call an ambulance for me about 11.30 last night the pain got that bad :cry: got gas and air in the ambulance on the way there though so that made me feel a bit better :lol: turns out that my gall bladder is inflamed and infected they werent happy about sending me home but i didnt have much choice as OH has to work and there is noone else to look after the kids. they have given me antibiotics and painkillers so hopefully they should start to work soon. gave me an anti sickness injection and this is the first time in months that i havent felt sick :dance:

    but im feeling a bit better now just thought i would keep you updated :)
