nausea while BF'ing.

so four nights ago, at 4am while feeding the baby, i had to stop to throw up. the next night, same thing but at 5am. thought it was the fenugreek, so i didn't take it that day, and was fine that night/morning. then this morning, same thing except i wasnt nursing, but my boobs were really full. DS is 8 weeks this coming wednesday. me and dh dtd at 5 weeks and 6 days pp, snd used a condom.

any ideas? im almost worried. :/

You could be dehydrated. I always get a little dizzy and queasy when I start to get dehydrated.

I used to feel that way for a while after dd was born. It happened when I felt my letdown. It passed as she got older.

Yep, to the dehydration comment in a pp. You need to drastically increase you water intake over the next few days. I bet it will help.

Re: nausea while BF'ing.

but why always at/around the same time of day?

i haven't noticed that it happens only during letdown. the first two nights it was just sometime while i was feeding, or directly after. lastnight, baby hadn't eaten in about 3 hours when the nausea started.

Because that's when your body feels seriously depleted. Your baby may not have eaten, but your body had already set aside the resources (energy, nutrients, water) for your baby. I have this issue if I don't get adequate sleep
(what mama with a newbie ever does?) and nutrition minus any pregnancy/nursing situations.

Re: nausea while BF'ing.

so this could all just be nursing related? being pregnant again scares the heck out of me, lol. while it's next to impossible, it's not ABSOLUTELY impossible. one time, condom, didn't break, but ugh. gonna see the doctor wednesday... so yeah.

i guess i will just keep up with the water (gotta be honest, i don't drink nearly enough) and see what happens tonight.

waking up sweating, nauseous, dizzy... ugh. NOT a good way to start the day.

It does stink. I've BTDT with my third baby, except it would hit me around 8am when I was driving my eldest to school. I remember "seeing stars" and cranking up the A/C to combat the nausea and sweating and swooning feelings. It took me a few days, but I realized that in getting my first grader and 16 month old ready (newbie just nursed and had a diaper change) I forgot to feed myself or even grab a glass of juice/water. Making sure that *I* ate a breakfast and chugged some water helped a lot.

Re: nausea while BF'ing.

If you are nursing at night you also need to drink water at night and maybe eat a small snack in bed too like a granola bar.

YES to the water comments. I get seriously ill sometimes while nursing. Usually a class of water or a small snack is all I need to feel better. Can you keep a water bottle by the bed? Drink some when baby wakes up and then nurse her.
