I'm a little over 12 weeks today and I'm really struggling.
For the last week I've been unable to eat or drink.
I spend all day in bed and feel terrible.
I'm vomiting once or twice a day and its just the small amount of juice I can get from my orange (which is all I can stomach).
I'm worried I'm dehydrated.  And possibly feeling this bad BECAUSE I'm dehydrated?

I just want it to stop.

Sounds like HG. What helped me was Zofran (ondansetron). I’d get to a dr ASAP. If you can’t, go to the emergency Department, you may need an iv for the dehydration. I wouldn’t wait till next week. There’s treatment, you don’t need to endure it just because you’re pregnant. Good luck.

I found restavit worked better than ondensetron for me.

For me, ondansetron did very little, but restavit was amazing. Sounds like a quick rehydrate at your local emergency department is exactly what you need. It’s such a vicious cycle.

Sounds like HG.
Restivit is first line treatment and very safe a damn lifesaver for me this pregnancy. Zofran is last resort, after phenergan, because it causes a very sought increase in cardiac defects which is fairly irrelevant by 12 weeks anyway.
Get to a GP. Hopefully they don't faff you around with maxalon- it is only effective in half of women, and then not very, and many it makes worse! Bloody GP had me on maxalon my last pregnancy and I only discovered this pregnancy it was making me worse- so damn annoying. Went and read the clinical guidelines my self and took restivit such a lifesaver.

Go to the Hospital,  they will probably put you on a drip.  HG is no fun.  I found sips of Gatorade helps over time,  along with meds.  Wishing you all the best

Gawd I wish I knew about Restavit when I was pregnant and in the depths of misery. Ondansetron and maxalon did SFA for me.

Definitely go to hospital and get a drip. If at all possible, have SO/friend/family member with you as back up, in case you come across one of those *delightful* medical sorts who says “You’re pregnant, not sick!”. I was so sick when I was pregnant, it was wonderful whenever DH was able to be there to support me at appointments.

You sound very dehydrated. Off to hospital for a drip to rehydrate and some zofran. Restavit will also help, but you need to get rehydrates first, and pretty urgently.

Yeah maxolon made me worse too. Wish I’d known about restavit too, I only found out about it post pregnancy

Does anyone have the link to I think the royal women’s hospital guidelines on hg that might help the OP to take to her dr? I seem to have lost them

Ditto! Thankfully I found out about it when I was pregnant with my son. Wish I'd known about it with my daughter.

Good luck OP.

Thanks everyone.
I'm currently in the short stay ward at hospital on a drip.
The hospital staff have been great.
I'm already feeling better.
They plan to rehydrate me but also need to find out why I can't eat much food.
Hopefully I'll be feeling much better by tomorrow.

I got some restavit a few days ago but haven't started with that yet.
How much should I be taking? Half twice a day?

Thanks again for all your support.

Have a look at the mothersafe website
https://www.seslhd.h...ctsheet2016.pdf

They suggest Doxylamine 25mg tablet (restavit or Dozile) and taking 1/2 tablet morning, 1/2 lunch and 1 tablet at night.

Hope it helps

So glad you're getting looked after.
My daily dose now is 1 at night, half morning and half afternoon. I eased In to it, think I took a half tab in the middle of the day because of course it makes you really drowsy at first. The full tablet at night was never a problem.  I was drowsy for 3 or 4 weeks, but hard to tell how much was just early pregnancy too! Now In the third trimester I am definitely past the tired point but still vomit if I forget a tablet.

Yes when you start Restavit you are meant to have ½ at night first before increasing to 25mg at night. Then add in ½ morning and ½ lunch/afternoon. Has been lifechaging for me (pregnant with twins) - still vomited but heaps less than before. I also took it with B6. The Melbourne Royal women’s hospital guidelines for emesis in pregnancy are on their website. Ondansetron is a long way down the list of options. Good luck!
