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!

Talk to a homeopathic healer or go to the nutrition store for a safe pregancy parasite cleanse. You need to talk to someone though about a safe way to cleanse with being pregnant. Dr's can't help..I too got misdiagnosed with ulcers..I don't believe it. I am currently working on the cleanse & gently removing the parasites. I broke the infection though with a hot ceyenne & ginger bath, my temp was up to 102 sweating out the parasite infection. I do not recommend that cold sheet wrap cleanse for you without proper direction though. Homeopathic healer or a clinic. Parasites are nasty. Do you have pets, b/c I think I got mine a year ago from my dog. He's sick too alot. eats & vomits, pain, excruciating. Being pregnant you need to do something to kill the parasitesHope this helpsSandi
