Hi I will be 13 weeks pregnant on this coming Monday. This is my second child. I had morning sickness with my first pregnancy, but I also had a good appetite and it went away at 12 weeks and I felt fine the rest of my pregnancy. This current pregnancy has been horrible! At 6 weeks I got very sick with some kind of GI issue. I was extremely nauseous and I would also have these painful attacks in my stomach where I was doubled over with pain. I went to my OB who blew me off and said that I had a GI bug and that it just needed to run it's course. I then went home that very night, had a half a banana for supper and 30 minutes later was doubled over with pain. We went to the ER and had my gallbladder and pancreas checked out- came back negative. I was diagnosed with gastritis and was put on pepcid, which did help a great deal. I remained nauseous, but I assumed that it was just normal pregnancy morning sickness, despite the fact that I had almost NO appetite. This past week (11 weeks) I was actually doing better-I was even hungry for supper a few times- though I got full VERY quickly. Then last sunday, (a week ago) I forgot to take my pepcid. The next day i was extrememly nauseous and I had to stay home from work. I went to my PCP a few days later and she checked me for H pylori (the bacteria that causes stomach ulcers) and it came back negative. She then put me on 30 mg of prevacid 2 times per day for the next week. She thinks I have an ulcer, though I guess not one caused by h pylori. I have been taking this for about 4 days now. I do feel much better during the day, but I am still having a lot of trouble at night. I can eat a very little supper (though forced) and then a few hours later I have this horrible nausea and gnawing pain in my stomach. I also burp a lot, which actually seems to give me relief. My quality of life is not good. I can barely play with my 2 year old son, and I know that he wonders where the heck his mom is. Has anyone else experienced this? How long did it take to go away? Any info will be considered helpful! Thanks!
