I am 17 weeks pregnant and I have had the worst case of morning sickness that I have ever experienced in my life. I started off my pregnancy at 222 and at my 16 week checkup I weighed 207. I have a set of 9 month old fraternal boy/ girl twins. Morning sickness was bad during that pregnancy and lasted until I was 6 months pregnant. I am worried that something bad is happening to me and/or the baby. Here recently I have been experiencing lightheadness, dizziness, and headaches but my blood pressure is normal. Today I have ate rice chex and 1% milk and mashed potatoes and both were seen again. If you get my drift. The doctor had me on Phenergan but when he realized that wasn't working he switched me over to Antivert which hasn't been helping at all. It actually seems to make me worse. What can I do to get the doctors to understand I am sick of being sick all the time and get them to do something different.

Not my field, but does any of this data help?
