I am currently on Zofran for nausea and vomiting and it is wonderful. I still have a problem feeling any food I eat just sits in my stomach causing a lot of discomfort. Sometimes I wish I could vomit just to relieve this feeling. I have tried Tums with no relief. I go as long as I can without eating to avoid this feeling but by lunch I have chicken noodle soup. The only relief is laying on my right side for awhile. I don't usually feel better until the next morning. What is this and what can I do???? Thanks!
It appears that the problem you have now, may be due to excess acid. You mentioned that the tums did not help, however there are other medications that you can take which are safe in pregnancy and should be more effective. You should speak to your doctor about taking one of these drugs.
