13 weeks pregnant - Nausea and vomiting

Hello! I am a firm believer in homeopathy and am looking for some help.

30 year old female
11 weeks pregnant
Wake up fine, I get hungry so I eat a light breakfast (anything-bagel, pancake, eggs,etc) and shortly thereafter starts the nausea. It is temporarily relieved by vomiting.
Feels as though stomach is not emptying and food sits there and burps are very rancid.
Cold hands or compress help a bit, rubbing my back distracts from feeling. Open air helps but still nauseous. It gets worse at night before bed. I usually throw up dinner the most frequently.
Have had post nasal drip and makes me gag.
Sleeping helps but when I get up to urinate, it takes FOREVER to fall back asleep and I start getting nauseous again.

Need help! Please :(

To be safe you could try the above prescription
3 times in one day.

If it does nothing, it is wrong and won't work.

If you feel better or worse after dose one or
dose two- then stop and see if you feel worse,then
better. If you feel better, then wait to dose until
you feel worse again.

Take another dose only when you feel symptoms are
returning.

When one has too much ( overdose) of a remedy then
you can start to have new symptoms or old
symptoms come back-due to overdosing. The remedy
could be totally correct but you would not know it
if you take too much.

Thank you! I had tried Chelidonium majus two doses and I had no relief. I was also told Nux Vomica. I am going to try the suggested medication first and reply within a few days.

Just had first dose of ipecac. Within minutes I felt extra nauseasous but did not throw up.maybe it was from lack of a hearty breakfast since everything makes me throw up. Also within my mouth felt INCREDIBLY DRY. I waited the 15 post dosage to be able to drink a sip of water but it was pretty bad. Felt like cotton mouth but not as bad - I've had cotton mouth worse before. Waiting to see how lunch reacts in my stomach.!

See how that one dose works.

Many times if you aggravate on the first dose
the first dose will cure you and you do not
need more.
 
simone717 4 years ago
Hi. Thanks for your reply. Should I not take a second dose of the ipecac - I have only taken one dose of 6 pellets. I feel different and hopeful that this might work. I didn't have a throw up session after eating my lunch and although I am still nauseous now, I think it's because I havent eaten anything. Please advise.
 
Nataliesammi 4 years ago
I would wait until tomorrow and report again.

It is working and you don't want to
confuse things by taking more, having it
be too much and start vomiting.
 
simone717 4 years ago
Had my one dose of ipecac. I have not thrown up food , just some bile once. It was not bad.
 
Nataliesammi 4 years ago
Don't have another dose until you know you
are going backwards with original symptoms
returning.
 
simone717 4 years ago
Hi! Hopefully Simone717 can see this. I had been feeling on edge from first and last dose of ipecac - as if the vomiting was right about to happen but I'd have to breathe deep and get to an ice pack or cold wall to lean on to not vomit. Then tonight, I had a small dinner and a couple hours later I threw up and it was VERY rancid. It almost burned my tongue as it came out. I keep having a dry cough and feels almost like acid reflux.

Should I wait it out another day or so ?

Thank you for all your help, I (and baby) appreciate it very much!

Hi-

Sounds as if these are the same symptoms in your first post.
.. rancid and burning and felt like
acid reflux?

Hi-

Try Kali bich 30c - 3 doses-
around morning before you eat,
before dinner and the next morning.

Dose is 3 pills dissolved under the tongue.
Do not eat or drink for half hour before
or after taking.

I don't think ipecac is right, as it is
known for nausea Not relieved by vomiting
and you are relieved by vomiting.

If Kali bich does not work your case has
to be taken in detail.

Regards,

Simone

Hi Simone. I have the Kali Bich which I was giving my daughter this week for thick green mucus and cough from her chest.

My symptoms now are similar to before I just feel they are toned down from the first experience. I would say a 50-60% improvement as I had not thrown up for almost 2 days. I realized that I left a big gap between dinner and bed time for myself (5 hours) and maybe that's what aggravated my stomach. The rancid feeling I felt before was when I burped, now I don't have a rancid feeling or aversion towards food but the throw up last night was very very rancid and burned.

I had breakfast today around 7am and have felt a little bit nauseous and like a cold pinching feeling in the area where the stomach starts or where the esophagus empties into the stomach (feels like gastritis but not as bad).

If you think I could benefit from a detailed report would you please let me know how I can do that? I am grateful for your help!

Hi,

Well if you have that much improvement from
one dose-Take one more dose if you throw up
again and lets see how much more improvement
there is and how long the dose holds.
 
simone717 4 years ago
Feel better today. Slight nausea feeling but Very tolerable.

I've been meaning to ask you but have been distracted as a result of symptoms. What is your background with homeopathy? You seem to be well read.

I also wanted to ask you if you can help, my child is unvaccinated. I read earlier a post about morbilinum 200 (don't know if the spelling is correct) for prevention of measles. Is this only if there is a known outbreak or person nearby with the virus?

Do you know of any remedies I should keep handy now that she has started school and is unvaccinated?

Thank you for your help!

Hi-

You can click on anyone's name and see their
profile.

Homeopathy does not work as a "preventative".
It is always prescribed on the symptoms.

I had a kit of 30c common remedies when my
children were small and it came with a condensed
materia medica. That worked very well for me.

At the first sign of cold, flu you can give
Ferrum Phos 6x cell salt. Ferrum Phos often
stops anything from developing If you give it
right away like the first day.

I would purchase the book "Natural Healing with
Cell Salts" by Dr. Skye Weintraub.There are 12 salts and it is a sub
system of homeopathy.Cell salts work on cell
metabolism.The book lists hundreds of conditions
and what salts to use.The salts are gentle and
often put things right in a few days.
I would also get a good book on Homeopathic
Self Care for the Family and that will help
you with acute things along with your kit.

I'm going to look into finding a kit. I had one from Hylands for babies but it was lost in the move.

Thanks for the help and explanation.

I am thinking of taking another Ipecac dose . I have been feeling extra nauseous . Last night I threw up again and I think I found the culprit (toast) but I have spent all of today pretty nauseous and it only happens after 30mjn to an hour after I eat.

Do you agree with this?
 
Nataliesammi 4 years ago
Yes, try it.
 
simone717 4 years ago
I wish I could be reporting an improvement but I see a decline from yesterday but an improvement from the first symptoms. I do not have the rancid feelings although I am still turned off by food. Once I start eating the im ok but shortly thereafter starts the nausea feeling.

How can I be sure it's not just me being terrified of feeling bad again? I feel physical symptoms of nausea, disgust, aversion. My husband also commented today that I seem to be more aggressive, screaming more , less patient and overall bad attitude.

When I started suffering from post partum anxiety and depression I was given Belladonna 200c I think and it helped for a bit and then I just went with the flow afterwards without any care.

I'm sure my situation now is a combination of things but the worst is the general disgust in my stomach and feeling useless to do anything. Like before, cold compress help and I am producing a lot of saliva which makes me even more nauseous.

I noticed some relief after last nights dose of ipecac but after breakfast today I started feeling bad again.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Hi- you need to wait for at least 24 hours.

You may be having aggravation-lets see if
it passes and you feel better.

If not, I will have questions and details
to chose another remedy.
 
simone717 4 years ago
Pl take
Ipecac-30 as suggested for 3 days and then give feedback

Are you eating dairy products? When I was pregnant with my daughter I suffered terrible 24/7 morning (all day) sickness. After 3 months of it I worked out that dairy was making it worse because it produced a lot of mucus which made me nauseous and caused vomiting. Once I cut out dairy I felt HEAPS better. I'm not sure if it will work for you but just reading your posts bring back not so good memories.

Homeo helper. Thanks for your updated response. As Simone as been helping me, I will finish treatment with her and see if I see improvement. Thank you and hope you don't take offense.

Nikki, thank you for that suggestion, I have drastically cut dairy.


ANSWERS FOR SIMONE717

I am back to my symptoms from Saturday. So I will answer these as best as I can.

1.Are you nauseous from the sight or smell of food?
-Yes, but once I force myself to eat because I feel weak, then I can eat normally. The nausea comes after I eat. My husband suggested waiting a prolonged time in the morning since it is when I feel the best (having slept and not eaten anything)

2.Do you have any kind of motion sickness with vertigo?
-No vertigo in the scientific definition but I do get very motion sick. Now more than as a child.

3.Nausea from looking at moving objects or looking
out of a moving car window?
-Yes, if I am not driving it is worse. If I am driving I can control the movements more and not feel as sick.

4.Are you intolerant of smells? Smells of cooking food?
-If its fried food I get disgusted.

Nausea from smell of fish, eggs or meat?
-No. The thought of very condimented foods or heavy sauces, too much butter, too much tomato I still can not eat. Bland food is more attractive to my taste at this time but still makes me feel nauseous afterwards (usually 30-45 min later)

5. Are symptoms worse by motion and turning the head?
-Yes, I have to walk carefully or nausea acts up more.

6.Do you feel you hate food?
-I have always LOVED to eat and will eat very heavy at all times. Now, I do feel afraid to eat because of how I will feel afterwards. I was also told by my doctor that if I gained too much weight it would be difficult to birth my child naturally since I am trying for a VBac (Vaginal birth after c section). I do not think I am afraid to eat for fear of weight gain as I am pretty healthy weight.

7. Is the vomit stringy and clear?
-Depends when I throw up, if it is after food then I throw up the food. If its before bedtime it is stringy and clear and very rancid. In the morning if I throw up, it is clear and very bubbly. SOmetimes the bile (yellow green) comes up after the clear bubbly vomit.

8. Does swallowing saliva induce vomiting?
-DOes not induce vomiting. I try to spit out instead of swallowing. IF I do swallow too much saliva and think about it then I will vomit.

9. Are you worse from warmth? worse from open air?
-The warm air is bad for me. I prefer cold air blowing directly in my face when I feel like this. The open air is fine as long as it is not too warm. I feel too hot and feel more nausea from warmth.

Better from cold, fresh air? Do you spit with the nausea?
-Yes, Cold air is better.
-Yes, I find I spit more often than ever before. I try not to swallow too much.

10. Are you having diarrhea with vomiting?
-No diarrhea.

11.cold sweat on the forehead with vomiting>
-Yes,cold sweats and at night I feel both hot and cold almost drastically. One minute its very hot and the next im very cold.


12. Worse from cold?
Worse from cold drinks or fruit>
Do you have desire for sour food, fruit pickles, lemons?
-I like the cold. I feel cold foods would soothe my stomach better. Not sour foods but cold foods yes, cold fruits I crave but they make me vomit, I craved lemon and bought lemon candy and taste good for a little bit then I feel nausea. Cold drinks are more soothing. I had a craving for coffee with milk (hot) and it did not feel bad but then later I did feel nauseas.


13. What else is going on? how is the sinus/cold doing?
-I do not feel cold symptoms anymore. I do feel I need to expectorate and clear my nose through pulling the mucus and spitting out of my mouth. It produces phlegm mostly white and compact and sometimes very light yellow. WHen I do that, it makes me gag and nauseaos.
My husband just went through the flu this week. My daughter was very congested and still has a phlegm cough.


I just realized that you had been self prescribing Kali Bich
for that.
-I did not take the Kali Bich for myself. I only gave it to my daughter.


When the nausea began were you taking Kali Bich?
-No I have not taken Kali Bich ever.

Have you taken Kali Bich, after taking Ipecac?
-No, Have not taken Kali Bich ever.

What medicines are you taking now or in the last couple
weeks, homeopathic and allopathic?
-Chelidonium Majus (2 doses a few days before I contacted the forum on ABChomeopathy - no change in symptoms)
-Ipecac when you suggested on the forum - 2 doses a few days apart.

I hope this helps in finding something I can benefit from as this feeling is very tiring. I feel exhausted. Sleep does help. I feel best when I don't eat but I get weak and hungry so I eat as bland as possible.

I feel I aggravate right after the Ipecac remedy and then 48 hours after I go back to the symptoms.

I have not thrown up since Sunday but the nausea is very much there.

Thank you for your help.

I also forgot to mention I feel much better from nausea after I eat. It is just 30-45 minutes later that I start feeling disgusted and nausea. Thinking of food at that point is very disgusting and makes me gag. I try to eat every 2 hours.
