Any good remedies, ideas, anything for me to pass along to my dd?
She goes in tomorrow morn to have ultrasound to find out how far along she is but we're guessing 6-8 weeks or so.
She is determined (for which I am proud!) to continue breastfeeding her 9 1/2 mo. old during pregnancy and isn't sure yet about tandem after newborn comes.
She is extremely nauseous and is throwing up daily now. Baby is now wanting to nurse every 2 hrs and at night every 1 hr. Awful when you are exhausted and sick as heck. She is having a hard time keeping anything down and has an especially hard time drinking water as it triggers vomiting for some reason. Only during pregnancy tho. She is quite concerned with both babies getting needed nutrition since she is having such a hard time keeping food and liquid down.
Please offer any advice. Dr. suggested a nausea drug (forgot name of it now). She is usually quite against drugs, however, wonders if she ought to just use it for a 2 or 3 months until this part of pregnancy subsides.
Would it be worse for baby if she quit altogether or if she got some of the drug through her milk?? We both hate the idea of drugs, but at this point it is sounding like the only option that would allow her to continue breastfeeding.
Pleeease. Any ideas, remedies, thoughts would be quite invited at this point. I will pass them on to her.
Thank you so much!
