I had hyperemesis gravidarum with my first pregnancy, this pregnancy is not as bad but I'm trying to decide if I need to ask for more help or if I'm still within the range of normal. I'm not vomiting daily, only a handful of times a week but the nausea and food aversions are really bad plus I can only eat a little bit at a time because it takes so long for my stomach to empty that I feel like I ate a Thanksgiving feast even three hours later. I'm 8.5 weeks and down 9 pounds which is about 6% of my body weight (10% is the benchmark for hg.) I am already taking b6 and unisom so anything I add will be a prescription and I hate doing that in the first trimester if I don't have to. I will definitely bring it up with my doctor, I'm just trying to decide if I should tough it out until my 10 week appointment or call.
