Your Questions About Can I Take Benadryl While Pregnant

Mark asks…

Does anyone know if it’s safe to take anything for insomnia while pregnant?

I am in my 6th week and am exhausted, but can barely sleep. It’s so annoying! I would like to take some Benadryl or something, but only if it’s safe for the baby. Please answer only if you have educated info. Thanks!

Hcg Diet answers:

I have insomnia – before pregnancy I took Ambien. Most doctors do not want women taking Ambien during pregnancy so my OB recommended Benadryl – both for my first pregnancy and this one. Benadryl is a category B medication for pregnancy.

Category B:
“Animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women OR Animal studies have shown an adverse effect, but adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus in any trimester.”

Myself or my son didn’t have any issues with Benadryl with the first pregnancy. This pregnancy I take it on an as needed basis (once-a-week or so) and it helps.

James asks…

Anyone bipolar & been pregnant- did you take medication during your pregnancies?

I have bipolar type 2 and am 6 weeks away from my scheduled c-section. I haven’t taken any medication during this pregnancy or with my other child. I have had pretty bad anxiety throughout the pregnancy and some lack of concentration but until recently I was able to manage . I haven’t slept well from the beginning of the pregnancy but now I have only been sleeping 2- 4 hours a night for about the last 5 weeks and it has caught up with me. I normally have to take high dosages of benzodiazepenes to sleep & obviously I can‘t do that while pregnant. I take benadryl or tylenol PM, which are both a joke but it has been better than nothing until this point. I know there are other things I could take that might take the edge off so I can sleep but I am not sure if I should for the sake of the baby’s health. I have been holding on by the skin of my teeth and I know I don’t have that much longer to go but I don’t want to start out having had no sleep when the new baby gets here. Help!
Also, I did call my psychiatrist today but he hasn’t gotten back to me yet. He is aware of the anxiety and sleeping problems I have been having but doesn’t know how bad it has gotten. Even if he recommends medication, I want some other opinions. I feel guilty about taking something but i‘m trying to think about my 4 year-old too and that I might start taking my stress out on him (NOT physically) but you know what I mean.
I won’t be able to sleep when my baby sleeps because I have another child who doesn’t nap and never stops talking. I tried to nap with him on the couch today and everytime I was just about to dose off he would start talking to me again. Trust me, unless someone else is here to help me (which my Mom will be for the first month) I will NEVER sleep fo the first few months. Unless you are bipolar you can‘t understand the intense anxiety that prevents you from sleeping, and just how detrimental it is that you do sleep. My point is that the baby isn’t even here yet & I can‘t sleep because of anxiety and also because I can‘t get comfortable due to pregnancy aches and pains. I was looking for advice on if I should or shouldn’t take meds right now.

Hcg Diet answers:

I am 39 weeks along and I have stopped taking my bipolar meds and my anti-depression meds. The first few months were really hard- I know I drove plently of people crazy with my mood swings and emotional ruts. But now, I don’t think I need the meds anymore and my psychiatrist thinks I’ve done a great transition but she would just like to watch me during the first few months after the baby is born. As for your sleeping problems, I suffered them as well and mentioned this to my OB who prescribed me Ambien. It works very well and my OB says it’s okay for me to take.

Mary asks…

Help! I have rash everywhere..and it keeps spreading! I’m pregnant, what medicine can I take?

I usually get this skin condition at least once a year. My dermatologist usually prescribes me some corticosteroids for it since i cant put anything topical since it’s everywhere. It’s on my neck, face, ears, arms, hands and legs. I use aquarphor EVERYDAY morning and night right after showers. It’s just getting worse. I try not to scratch it, but it gets really itchy. I left a message for my OB Gyn, but she probably wont get back to me until tomorrow. I wanna konw if there’s anything i can do until then. What is safe to ingest? I konw i can take Benadryl, and it’s safe to take while pregnant, but will it work? Thanks so much for your help!!

Hcg Diet answers:

Wait — if the rash is everywhere, just where is it spreading to? Like, the walls?

Michael asks…

Medications while pregnant?

I have sever allergies to cats, and the only thing that works is Claritin or Claritin-D. Is that safe to take while pregnant? (we are TTC) also if the claritin doesn’t work I have to use my inhaler (allbuteral) while in a house with cats. Some of my family and friends have cats, and I don’t want to tell them after I am pregnant I can‘t see them. Also I cannot take benadryl because it totally knocks me out… Any suggestions?

Hcg Diet answers:

I worked at a pharmacy and I do know you have to be vary sparing with an allbuteral inhaler while pregnant, it can be harmful. I would talk with a OB/GYN or your regular doctor when it comes to OTC allergy pills some are fine and others can be very bad for baby.

Your Questions About Hcg Diet Cause Nausea

Maria asks…

When do you get pregnant signs?

What are the earliest signs when you’re pregnant? Could you tell after a week?

Hcg Diet answers:

The onset and degree of pregnancy symptoms will vary within women. Many women experience them within days of conception, others take a few weeks before pregnancy symptoms kick in and a lucky few feel no discomfort at all. The early pregnancy symptoms listed here generally can be felt once implantation occurs (8 – 10 days from ovulation) and will lessen after the first trimester.

It is frustrating to realize that many pregnancy symptoms are very similar to those that occur right before menstruating. However, combined with high temperatures and a longer luteal phase – they are key indications that you are pregnant!

Nausea and Vomiting

•Nausea and vomiting may come as early as a week into the pregnancy. Many women experience illness in the morning (morning sickness), some in the afternoon or evening, others feel nausea throughout the entire day. There is no explanation as to why pregnant women feel this or even a solution as to how to prevent it – however, eating small frequent meals, and snacking on saltine crackers seems to give some kind of relief. Eating a protein/carbo-hydrate at bedtime (try an apple and a glass of milk) tends to lessen the nausea that occurs in the morning.

Breast Tenderness

•Breasts may be very tender, swollen and start to enlarge. Many times the veins within the breast will become more visible. Your nipples may start to darken in color, become more erect and be extremely sensitive. These symptoms are due to increasing amount of HCG hormone that begins at implantation.

Frequent Urination

•Pregnancy causes the uterus to swell and it will start to enlarge for the growing fetus immediately. The uterus puts pressure on your bladder making you feel the need for more frequent urination. Many women start to feel this symptom within a week or two after pregnancy has occurred.

Feeling Tired / Sluggish

•This one is pretty obvious. When pregnant your body is going through some major hormonal changes. HCG levels alone go from 0 – 250,000 mIU/ml in just twelve weeks. Your temperature is also higher due to the amount progesterone circulating through your body which will also make you feel a little sluggish.

Missed Period / Light Bleeding

•Light bleeding (spotting) may occur approximately 8 – 10 days from ovulation. It usually happens around the same time you would have gotten your menstrual period. Some women assume they have started their period when in fact they are pregnant. The spotting is caused from implantation which is when the fertilized egg burrows into the endometrial lining.

Dizziness and/or Fainting

•When standing in one place you may feel dizzy or even faint. The growing uterus compresses major arteries in your legs which causes your blood pressure to drop making you extremely light headed. Skipping meals or going too long without eating may cause you to feel dizzy or faint. When not eating frequently enough it causes low blood sugar. Blood sugar is the primary source of food for your baby so it will be depleted much more quickly.

Constipation

•Pregnancy hormones will slow down bowel functions to give maximum absorption time of vitamins and nutrients. Unfortunately, this symptom usually only gets worse as the pregnancy progresses.

Irritability

•Raging hormones are the cause of this…along with having to put up with all the other symptoms. This symptom should decrease soon into the second trimester but until then, a healthy diet, moderate exercise and plenty of sleep should help the crabbiness somewhat.

Heartburn

•The uterus is very swollen and starts to push upward as it grows. The increasing levels of HCG will also slow down digestion making your stomach not empty as fast which increases the stomach acid.

Joseph asks…

I heard about HCG drops that helps you to loose weight. But there are so many over here. How do I know?

which one is the real one and that it will work. It’s not cheap so I want to make sure I’m getting good stuff. HELP! Are the ones from GNC good ones?

Hcg Diet answers:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission issued seven warning letters on Tuesday December 6, 2011 to companies that sell the over-the-counter products, noting they have not been approved by the FDA for weight loss. The drops do not contain hcg hormone but similar synthetic peptide amino acids. These peptides are destroyed in the digestive system and are completely worthless.

Finally the Food and Drug Administration has taken steps to stop these possibly harmful products.
Anyone that lost weight on the diet protocol only did because they were eating 500 calories a day and in starvation mode. The drops legally cannot contain any real hcg anyway. Most conscientious pharmacies have already pulled them from the shelves and others are selling down.
The side effects of the hcg diet protocol are the side effects of malnutrition. These include headache, hair loss, interruption of menstrual cycles, fatigue, feeling lightheaded, disorientation, stomach pain, nausea, and diarrhea.
Something to think about. One of the side effects of properly using the hcg injections to increase fertility is weight gain. So how can the hormone cause weight loss other than malnutrition?
I know you hate to hear it but a healthy diet and exercise work every time.

Your Questions About Hcg Diet Nauseated

Nancy asks…

positive pregnancy test, negative blood test and still no period?

I am on BC but i found out another medication i was taking could and has been know to (belladonna) interact with bc. I stopped taking the other medication in march. For my period in march I had spotting for one-2 days and continued to have cramps, so i blew it off bc bC can make me irregular and i have been really stressed with my board exams. The week before my next expected period i was nauseated and my boobs hurt and i had bad cramps so i took two tests one came back negative and one positive. I had a blood test and it was negative. I am almost 2 weeks late for my april period. I have had cramps and back pain the entire time and my boobs are sore some days, not all the time. Im tired and have had some nausea and last night when i went to parents house for dinner the smell of the pork made me run out of the room bc i was about to vomit. I have also had night sweats for the past 2 or three weeks and i have tried everything to prevent them. help? could I be pregnant? do i need to test again?

Hcg Diet answers:

I would for sure go to the doc and get tested again. When I first started noticing that my body was changing, every other HCG test I took at home come back different. Then the doc confirmed that I was pregnant. :)
But, if you have went off of BC recently and were taking a drug that had the possibility to interact with the BC, you could just have your hormones imbalanced. If you go to the doc and they say that you are not pregnant, I would check into doing some hormone testing. Some doc’s give hormone shots and others start by changing your diet to get your hormones regulated again. It would def be worth a try.
Either way, good luck to you!

Mandy asks…

Help with morning sickness?

I am 7 weeks pregnant and my morning sickness is horrible. I’m not actually being sick just feel like I need to all the time. It’s not even just in the morning it’s all throughout the day. Does anyone know way it is this bad? and does anyone know any way to help with it? :(

Hcg Diet answers:

No one knows for sure what causes nausea during pregnancy, but it’s probably some combination of the many physical changes taking place in your body. Some possible causes include:

•Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone rises rapidly during early pregnancy. No one knows how hCG contributes to nausea, but it’s a prime suspect because the timing is right: Nausea tends to peak around the same time as levels of hCG. What’s more, conditions in which women have higher levels of hCG, such as carrying multiples, are associated with higher rates of nausea and vomiting.
•Estrogen. This hormone, which also rises rapidly in early pregnancy, is another suspect. (It’s possible that other hormones play a role as well.)
•An enhanced sense of smell and sensitivity to odors. It’s not uncommon for a newly pregnant woman to feel overwhelmed by the smell of a bologna sandwich from four cubicles away, for example. Certain aromas instantly trigger the gag reflex. (Some researchers think this may be a result of higher levels of estrogen, but no one knows for sure.)
•A sensitive stomach. Some women’s gastrointestinal tracts are simply more sensitive to the changes of early pregnancy. Also, some research suggests that women with a stomach bacterium called Helicobacter pylori are more likely to have severe or long-lasting nausea and vomiting. Not all studies confirm this link, though.
•Stress. Some researchers have proposed that certain women are psychologically predisposed to having nausea and vomiting during pregnancy as an abnormal response to stress. However, there’s no conclusive evidence to support this theory. (Of course, if you’re constantly nauseated or vomiting a lot, you certainly may begin to feel more stressed!)

•Eat small, frequent meals and snacks throughout the day so your stomach is never empty. Some women find that carbohydrates are most appealing when they feel nauseated, but one small study found that high-protein foods were more likely to ease symptoms. Whatever you eat, eat it slowly.
•Avoid lying down after eating (especially on your left side), as this can slow digestion.
•Keep simple snacks, such as crackers, by your bed. When you first wake up, nibble a few crackers and then rest for 20 to 30 minutes before getting up. Snacking on crackers may also help you feel better if you wake up nauseated in the middle of the night.

By the way, getting up slowly in the morning—sitting on the bed for a few minutes rather than jumping right up—may also be helpful.
•Try to avoid foods and smells that trigger your nausea. If that seems like almost everything, it’s okay to eat the few things that do appeal to you for this part of your pregnancy, even if they don’t add up to a perfectly balanced diet.
•Try to eat food cold or at room temperature, because food tends to have a stronger aroma when it’s hot.
•Avoid fatty foods, which take longer to digest. Also steer clear of spicy, acidic, and fried foods, which can irritate your digestive system. It might help to stick to bland foods.
•Brush your teeth and rinse out your mouth after eating.
•Try drinking fluids mostly between meals. You might find cold, carbonated beverages easiest to keep down. (Some women also find sour drinks, such as lemonade, easier to handle.)
•Don’t drink so much at one time that your stomach feels full, as that will make you less hungry for food. A good strategy is to sip fluids throughout the day. Try using a straw if sipping isn’t going well.
•Aim to drink about a quart and a half each day. If you’ve been vomiting a lot, try a sports drink that contains glucose, salt, and potassium to replace lost electrolytes.
•Watch for non-food triggers, too. A warm or stuffy room, the smell of heavy perfume, a car ride, or even certain visual stimuli, like flickering lights, might trigger your nausea. So might changing positions too quickly. Avoidance of triggers can become an important part of your treatment.

Mary asks…

Pregnancy question?.?

I had unprotected sex about 3, almost 4 months ago. I know it was stupid and i regret it. i dont need lectures about that.
im young. in my teens. and i dont get my period reguarly because of stress. i usually get it once a year if at all. and its always short and light.
i’ve taken two home pregnancy tests and they come out negative. i was ok with that and just took that as i wasnt pregnant… but ive noticed little symptoms lately that have me wondering. i used to urinate around 4 times a day.. now i have to go every 2 1/2 hours or so. i get nauseated randomly a lot but i dont actually vomit. ive gained a little weight which is odd because ive been on a diet with an hour and a half excercise everyday to lose weight. i get dizzy/lightheaded a lot.
i really dont know whats going on since i had negative hpt results.
like i said before..im really young. so i cant just go to the doctors without having a parent make an appt. and i do not want to do that unless i really think i should. planned parenthood isnt an option either.

so could someone please give me advice on what i should do or what you think ?

Hcg Diet answers:

How long ago did you take the pregnancy tests? If it was yesterday or last week, you’re not pregnant. If it was last month, you need to take another one.

Pregnacy tests react to the hcg hormone. Hcg levels can be low in the first 8 weeks. They reach their peak at 9-12 weeks, and you would be just past that now.

I have to tell you, though, that if you’re only menstruating once a year, you’re only ovulating once a year. So unless you had spectacularly bad timing and managed to pick your one ovulation of the year as the time to have unprotected sex, you’re not pregnant.

(^^^do not take the above as permission to take foolish risks. A 1-in-365 chance is still a chance.)

Helen asks…

I was late for my period by 2 days then i started bleeding but its not like i normally do?

I was 2 days late for my period and I’m never late!!! The first day was light, the second day was kinda normal. The third day was light all day. Today is spotting. Now after having so many pregnancy symptoms i figured i wasn’t even going to get my period. The thing is i either bleed heavy for 3 days then light the 4th or bleed lightly and last for 5 days. I’m never late. I haven’t changed my diet or have done anything to cause my bleeding to change. I have been dizzy and nauseated. Uterus pains and headaches. Plus many more symptoms. Could my instinct be wrong and not be pregnant? My doctor said if the bleeding isnt normal like usual then take a test in a week. Any advice? Thanks! :)
I started bleeding the 3d day late *

Hcg Diet answers:

Personally I wouldn’t wait a week, if your pregnant there’s enough hcg at this stage to test positive. It sounds too heavy and it’s lasting too long for implantation, but you’ve nothing to lose by testing.

Very best of luck with the result.

Can I do the HCG diet after I give birth?

I used the HCG drops to lose weight before I got pregnant. I plan on waiting two weeks before going on the HCG diet after I give birth to my baby. Is this safe?

While there are loads of profiteers, clinics, and doctors with no moral compass promoting this 60 year old ridiculous protocol it is not endorsed or recommended by any medical, dietary, or regulatory organization.

David asks…

Has anyone ever tried the HCG diet drops and was able to stick to the 500 calorie diet?

That diet is really strict, it would probably be like eating very small portions when you have gastric bypass done. So of course you should lose a lot of weight quickly. Does anyone have a review on this?

Hcg Diet answers:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission issued seven warning letters on Tuesday December 6, 2011 to companies that sell the over-the-counter products, noting they have not been approved by the FDA for weight loss. The drops do not contain hcg hormone but similar synthetic peptide amino acids. This is the first step in terminating the sale of the ineffective drops.

Finally the Food and Drug Administration has taken steps to stop these possibly harmful products.
Anyone that lost weight on the diet protocol only did because they were eating 500 calories a day and in starvation mode. The drops legally cannot contain any real hcg anyway. Most conscientious pharmacies have already pulled them from the shelves and others are selling down.
The side effects of the hcg diet protocol are the side effects of malnutrition. These include headache, hair loss, interruption of menstrual cycles, fatigue, feeling lightheaded, disorientation, stomach pain, nausea, and diarrhea.
Something to think about. One of the side effects of properly using the hcg injections to increase fertility is weight gain. So how can the hormone cause weight loss other than malnutrition?
I know you hate to hear it but a healthy diet and exercise work every time.

Laura asks…

what happens when you eat a bad meal on the hcg 500 calorie diet?

i ate some chocolate and cheesy noodles and im on this 500 calorie hcg diet plan what happens now?

Hcg Diet answers:

Your body will try to pull itself out of starvation mode.
Any weight you have lost so far is nothing more than food and waste that was in your system. Next you will lose another 3-4 lbs as glycogen (stored energy) is depleted from the liver and muscle tissue. Also the water connected to sodium can be another few pounds. So you may lose up to 15 pounds and not an ounce of it is stored body fat. If you are going to continue with this dangerous protocol, get a tape and measure arms, legs, waist and hips. You will definitely lose inches in the waist only because the intestines are now empty.
There isn’t any real hcg hormone in over the counter drops anyway.
Even the amount of hormone in the injections is too low to increase fertility.
