Default water makes nausea worse...

yes, that's exactly what my ob/gyn told me today at my check-up. i'm 7 wks & 5 days & told her how nauseated i have been since around 5 weeks. i quit drinking caffeinated drinks & got really heavy on the water drinking b/c i want to make sure baby is plenty healthy. so much to my surprise she tells me that the water is making me more nauseated & to start drinking gatorade, ginger ale, or kool-aide. no milk products or orange juice. i was like wow!! all the things i thought i needed to be drinking more of are what's making me more sick?? and the tiredness comes from me being so dehydrated from the nausea & not eating enough. but doesn't my body need the water too?! she told me to eat every 2 hours, small snacks of course but mostly complex carbs like crackers, rice, oatmeal, toast...things like that & also pears & peaches. and she also mentioned that nausea is a very good indicator of a healthy pregnancy & less likely chance for a miscarriage. i have also been taking emetrol & it helped a little during dinner but i still have that hungry feeling even though i ate a full serving. you learn something new everyday

Water made my nausea 100X worse..especially when I drank it on an empty stomach. Gatorade/powerade was my BEST friend, THEN I would sip water AFTER drinking a full bottle of gatorade. It helps the water not just sit on your stomach (or at least that's what it felt like).

I find that tiny sips of really cold water are soothing at first, but yeah, as soon as I get a lot of water in my stomach it starts to make things worse.

It shocked me too because your SUPPOSE to drink water when pregnant. Prenatal vitamins made me incredibly sick too. My OB told me to stop taking them, that if I was throwing them PLUS my breakfast up, there was no point in even putting them in my mouth.

I don't know if it's the density of water or what...but even when I was a little kid my mom wouldn't let me drink water after I puked, she said it'd make me do it again. But she'd let me rinse my mouth w/water, or take a tiny sip; but pushed Gatorade and Sprite/Clear soda. In my first trimester I had to force myself to drink water, it was one of my aversions; must've been the nausea?!? Lol...good luck and hope you feel better soon!

I still can't take my prenatals... something about them just makes my stomach rebel. I'm taking an iron pill and a B-complex pill every day. I eat a lot of cereal with pretty much a full bowl of milk, plus I crave dairy products all the time so I figure I'm okay on the calcium.

I never would've thought that about the water. I love water! I drink probably close to 80oz a day. I drink it constantly, but I can't drink too much at once or else I'll get sick. But I did that before I got pregnant, too.

I swear my stomach just likes to eff with me

That makes so much sense looking back on my last few weeks. I wish I'd known this!
