Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am around 8 to 9 weeks pregnant and really struggling with morning sickness. I have not been able to keep anything down for nearly a week now. I constantly feel queasy. I have tried just plain foods and every old wives tale known to man. Nothing seems to be helping and it is really starting to affect my work now too.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Take your prenatal and Folic acid tablet. Get a thyroid profile done and other blood tests like a complete blood count and sugar levels. You should eat only what you feel like and what you can sustain like fruits, a dry toast with butter or jam bread. You can have cornflakes with cold milk as the hyperacidity reduces with that. You can have a semolina porridge or a sandwich. It is alright. Everyone goes through it. Some have bad phases but eventually, it will be over or at least decreased considerably by 12 to 13 weeks. Get an ultrasound to check if there is twin gestation as in twins the throwing up episodes is exceptionally high. Reassurance to self and stay with family. Consult a doctor personally.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
