Pregnant with #2...How to prepare for HG?!

Postby mrsbojangles » Feb 13, 2016 7:01 pm

After 6 years I can't believe I finally got the courage to try for another one. I can't believe I'm pregnant again and scared to death! My first pregnancy was horrible! I can't even remember the time line of things that happened but I need to prepare. I wake up everyday fearing that the nausea is back. Can you guys please help me with how to prepare for another HG pregnancy? I already called my obgyn and tried to get the earliest appt in as possible. I'm going to ask for a prescription to a maternal fetal medicine doctor just in case. Should I start to take anything as a precaution? I'm still so very scared of taking medication in the first trimester but I do not want to go back to those dark days of feeling like death. Any other words of advice?

Congrats! The earliest you can start your medication, the better. If you are nauseous with Unisom/B6, you need to add medication now, before getting admitted to the hospital if possible! :)

Today was much better....maybe because I didn't leave the house, took it easy.... my husband was home. I know everyone says to start medication as a precaution but I'm still a bit scared to. I will definitely use it when I feel like I really need it though.
