    Clair, Didn't want to read and run, You've been suffering so much with nausea, feel for ya. Can't offer any advice but hope the docs can help. As for nutrition for baby, baby will get nutrition from the smallest amount so don't worry too much, they just rob it from you!!

    Fingers crossed for help at docs


    ps think of your baby, will make it all worthwhile!!

    ditto Mrsstay2b, this is what fat reserves are for!! You baby will take what it needs no problem, There are some people who are sick for weeks and baby is still fine. Keep hydrated, and when you think of feood think in terms of cream crackers/rich tea biscuits/ginger nuts, plain plain plain.

    Hope you feel better soon, and it IS worth it!

    Oh honey, I do feel for you - it's the worst feeling in the world and you're right, it IS depressing.

    You may not want to hear this, but if you haven't kept anything down for 3 days you may have to be admitted to hospital to go on a drip. The doctor should test your urine for ketones and if they are present you may have to go in. This is what happened to me when I was 13 weeks pregnant, and it's actually fairly common. Didn't enjoy being in hospital for 2 nights but it made me feel sooooo much better.

    Hopefully you can avoid this - the fact that you've been having ice pops is brilliant - I couldn't even keep down a drop of water - so you may just be given some anti sickness medication.

    Also, make sure you take all the time off you need from work - don't feel guilty - you and your baby are far more important.

    Let us know how you get on at docs xx

    p.s. and remember it is ALL worth it for a beautiful baby at the end of it! xx

    MrsP! I completely sympathise. I've just got back from the doctors who has prescribed me Cyclizine, an anti sickness tablet. I've been sick every morning for 2 weeks but yesterday stopped being able to keep food or water down. GP has signed me off work for 1 week too. I was worried about taking tablets but was warned that I could end up getting more sick

    Good luck

    Might sound odd but what about jelly babies?? They were the only thing my friend could hold down in her first few weeks!

    Hope you feel better soon xx
