Zofran pump pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Zofran pump pregnancy

zofran

I tried to take the pills but I was way to sick for that! So I have been on the Zofran pump (pumps Zofran into my stomach 24 hours a day) for the last 3 months. It's been "Heaven sent" for me! I lost 28 pounds in my first trimester and was unable to eat or drink anything for 11 weeks! Now because of the pump, I can eat anything and have gained 3 of those pounds back!
Just curious. I've been taking zofran through out my entire pregnancy to help with nausea. I'd take only one in the morning and I'd never feel sick or throw up at all. Now that I'm 36 weeks, I throw up at least once a day and it's always unexpected. The zofran isn't working anymore :/ anyone go through this too?
As far as I know its been deemed safe for pregnancy. I had to be put on a zofran pump because I was so nauseous and vomited literally all the time. It got so bad I tore my esophagus a few times, and had to be in the hospital for fluids. That pump saved my life. I'm off it now, but still take the oral zofran as I need it. All my ultrasounds have shown that baby is perfect, and I did some hefty research before going on the pump, and couldn't find anything that said it caused defects.
Before the Zofran I was vomiting 14-33 hours non-stop and so far I have lost 30 pounds. I'm now on IV's and a Zofran pump 24 hrs a day and it has worked wonders! I'm 14wks, 4d and only throw up once a day (if that).
I was on both the Zofran pump and the pills. They say they make you tired but never really made me tired. I am taking it again and no luck. I am not sleeping well either. I have this really crazy thing I do....I start with the letter A and see how many boy and girl names I can come up with. Next I move to B,C,D, etc..I never make it that far. For some reason that really works. Oh, and I do it with my eyes shut because I picture the name also.
D student ) and just lay in bed. I'm 16 weeks, I've lost 30 pounds, have a home care nurse, on a Zofran pump 24 hours a day and IV's. I also take Reglan every 6 hours for the nausea as well, I am on a prescription to help me stop spitting, I take Pepcid for the stomach acid, and Dol-ca-lax for the constipation (side effect from the medicine). Im getting better because I can keep down about 15 oz of liquids, toast and maybe a peach or watermelon. That's definitely progress!
I had a 3d sonogram at 18 weeks, 16 weeks gestation and my baby doesn't have a cleft lip and I have been taking zofran since my 10th week of pregnancy. If it does turn out that it does cause cleft lip then I would think it would be just at the very beginning, like I had previously said. One or my very best friends was born with one and it was because her mom took some sort of medicine at the very beginning of her pregnancy.
I was on Zofran and Reglan with my daughter for almost 30 weeks. I was on a pump that gave me medicine 24 hours a day because I couldn't keep the pills down. It was one of the hardest times in my life. I felt alone and still got sick every day. I was in and out of the hospital all throughout my pregnancy. Now my daughter is 2 1/2 yrs old and I am thankful but wonder about the side effects of being on that kinda a medicine. My daughter is very small.
Pain, GI, Pulmonary and High risk OB, the doctors still were not sure...they said they had never dealt with a pregnancy with someone this severe, but that I could try it and we would find out. I am now 5 months pregnant. The pain doctor wanted me back on oral meds incase a problem developed with the pump due to the expanding abdomen. I am off all med except zofran oxycontin and a little vicodin. The pregnany has been going well.
In extreme cases a morphine pump is inserted into the patient and a constant flow of the drug is readily available. Usually a port is inserted somewhere in the chest area for easy access.
I am looking for more info on pregnancy after an endometrial ablation. I had an ablation in May 2002. January 2003 I was not feeling well and went to the family doctor. She thought it may be an ectopic pregnancy since I was told I was sterile. I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue.
I have a picc line because I can't keep anything down, so I am on IV fluids daily at home and I have a zofran pump. I was a small baby as well 5lb 4oz same as my sister, my mom was 6 lbs so there is a long history of small babies.
I should have been hospitalized and on fluids. The second pregnancy I was put on a drug called Zofran. My miracle drug. I suffered no ill side affects and was able to eat light foods and cereal for 2 months until the sickness finally faded. I still felt nausea but at least I could eat, drink, take my vitamins, and leave the house! My son was born March 2010. I just found out I was pregnant for a third time. Due in June 2012.
With my first son, severe morning sickness to the point of a zofran pump and being hospitalized, early onset of diabetes diagnosed at 15 weeks, severe swelling, and anemia didn't set in till 38 weeks. This pregnancy, sickness wasnt bad and could be controlled with medication, diabetes test passed with flying colors, no swelling hardly; however, i have severe anemia and a heart problem called supraventricular tachycardia.
I didn't the mention marajuana which is combating an entirely different complications - hyperemesis gravidarum (hospitization zofran pump kind). Although estrogen dominance(my last post touches on this)can affect thyroid, which is associated with hypermesis gravidarum). I have been smoking pot since I was 8w. sorry for my rambling. I have no one to talk to about this experimental, but very interesting pregnancy. But yeah, I'm a total medicinal pothead.
My sickness was so bad I lost 20 pounds. It had gotten so bad, I had to get a zofran pump and walk around with a tube in my stomach to keep me from getting nauseous, and to keep the zofran flowing. I was on that for a month and a half. It helps. So if urs are as bad as mines, inquire about that.

I haven't had the typical pregnancy I've been so sick and was even put on a Zofran pump and lost over 21 lbs so far and I'm 26 weeks today but things have been okay right now so my concern is I've lost almost two cup size's since I got pregnant do you think this will affect breastfeeding I'm just afraid I won't be able to breastfeed I'm going to talk to my midwife of course but would love some feed back will I get my breasts back?
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me when I should start to having pregnancy symptoms after iui. I am 6 days post iui and yesterday I started feeling naused. It woke me up during the night and I still feel the same today. I don't know if I have a bug or if is maybe a sign. I also took 10,000 units of HCG trigger shot but it has been 8 days since I had shot so I don't know if that could be it. Please HELP!!!
I have this too and now any minute a nurse isgoing to show up here and give me a zofran pump hope I dont have to have it the whole pregnancy.
I'm off the IV's, but I still have the 24 hour Zofran pump in my stomach. I'm on Reglan as too; which helps with the nausea. And Pepcid for acid reflux. I didn't eat my first meal until I was 15 weeks and 6 days. I'm now 18 weeks and 2 days...I am so grateful for being able to eat!
Ive only gained 8 pounds my whole pregnancy and im 33 weeks but i started to have more of an appetite around week 30. Hope the zofran helps and good luck with the rest of your pregnancy.
Ive been hospitalized 6 times so far for this disorder. I had the microinfusion pump but it didnt work well for me. Zofran causes a reaction for me. So I have dealt with this with no remedy and its getting to be too much. I had to quit my job. . i cant even enjoy life as i used to. Within last 4 days i have been able to eat a full meal but im right back to old ways now. Who had this disorder and when did u see full relief?
with hyperemesis gravidarum, and became so dehydrated, I was hospitalized for a week. I was also given a zofran pump that is the medicine constantly circulating through an iv. Once I got the fluids back in my system, I felt 100 times better. I was so sick that I was unable to walk, wash my hair, bathe, watch TV, talk, look across the room, and change.clothes without vomiting so I know the frustration you're going through! Good luck!
You can try peppermint too. I'm on a zofran pump and I'm 20+ weeks. For some women the MS doesn't end until the pregnancy is over.
I have hyperemesis graviderum, am at 14weeks, have had with every pregnancy I've had( the gnarly version of hg) and I'm taking both Reglan and Zofran. Not sure what a pic line is. I've also never had them try to give me steroids. Try asking about those ones I'm taking, they really help (antiemetics). Nothing even helps me (no crackers, no ginger etc.) unless it's those two together.
She can recommend a few medicines. She will probably start with zofran which didnt work with my first pregnancy ... but is a life saver right now in my 2nd trimester. I had hyperemesis so my situation was pretty extreme but see what she says. If you can try some of the natural things first I would do that. Honestly no matter what we say everyone's body reacts differently. None of the natural stuff worked for me. Not even gingerale. But it may for you. Good.luck.
g sufferer with a pic line and zofran pump which I'm still on and starting to feel a bit better, I just want to say hi to all and congrats, hope all are doing great and have a happy healthy pregnancy.
I had the same thing with my son and with this pregnancy as well...with my son i was put on a pump that i had for almost 2wks and with this pregnancy i have been on 4 different meds that i have been on since 7 wks and am still on them...the moment i stop taking them i start going back to getting sick...my dr said hopefully now that i have hit the 14wk mark i will be able to stop all the meds but idk...
