- Q: I am currently 10 weeks pregnant and ALREADY have extreme anxiety about my impending delivery. I have an incredible phobia of vomiting (emetophobia) and it's leaving me so concerned that this may inevitably occur during birth. I would just like to hear what someone believes my odds would be of this happening. I've done alot of research on this topic, leaving me even more freaked out seeing how common this occurence actually is and worrying I may end up like a growing statistic! To date, I have had only mild-moderate morning sickness, hardly severe and no vomiting...I honestly had bouts of the flu and other illnesses worth than this. Still, I do experience some nausea, and especially stomach pains that make me feel very close to throwing up although it passes after a few seconds. Also, my biggest concern is that my body does seem to react to pain (at least that associated with my period as well as just having my period itself) by becoming nauseous. I'm alright with nausea, but I would LOVE to avoid puking at all costs. I've spoken with many women (veteran moms) that I'm fortunate enough to have close and none of them have thrown up during any stage of labor, including my own mother and grandmother whom both had horrendous morning sickness all throughout their entire pregnancies.But anyway, as a run down, from viewing other forums, posts, and general information, I'm also already aware... - Epidurals cause nausea for some, and alleviate it for others. - The 'Transition Stage' of labor seems to be the most frequent culprit of this. - Medications can be administered via I.V. that may aid in preventing or reducing nausea.And most importantly... - That you should avoid eating full or heavy meals as you begin labor or the day prior if possible.Having said all this, any HELPFUL, not critical advice would be soooo appreciated. I feel guilty enough that this of all things is what I am worried about, but for people like myself whom suffer from this phobia, this can also be feared worse than death (definitely more immediately dreaded). I am just looking for honest opinions and answers, but please consider this strange circumstance when responding with your thoughts :o)Thank you!
- A: Well, I for one know how you feel. I wouldn't say that I have a phobia of throwing up, but I sure do hate it! I've had 3 kids. I never once had ''morning sickness'' - by that I mean that I never actually threw up. Sure, I felt nauseous, but that was it. And usually only very early on in the pregnancy. I also, had a huge fear of throwing up in the delivery room. Thankfully I didn't. It never even occurred to me once everything started happening. Guess I was too busy dealing with the pain.I agree that you shouldn't eat a huge meal before hand, if you can help it. If your not allergic they can probably give you Phenogran ( spelling?) My friend was given that a lot during her pregnancy and she said it helped, but it made her feel groggy.Anyway, good luck. I'm sure you'll be fine. :)
