Working while pregnant and sick. Someone help!

  1. I am currently 7 weeks pregnant and I work as a critical care tech in the ER and I am in my last year of nursing school. I have been so sick all day and night and I don't know how to survive work and clinicals. I can't take time off work, I can't afford it, and I obviously have to go to clinicals. I have tried everything I can think of and nothing seems to help the nausea not even meds. Anyone out there gone through this or have any advice?

    The only thing I can suggest is to see your OB, and if they can't help to make the nausea better ask them for a doctors note for school/work. You can only do so much, you won't be able to sustain working/clinicals if you are that ill. It may mean taking a year off nursing school and going on long term sick leave at work .

    I should have clarified. I'm not really looking for medical advice. I have already been to see my OB and I am already on medications. I'm just curious if anyone has any tips for getting through my shifts.
